If you’re put off by overly-complicated helmets that cost the earth and look naff to boot, perhaps the Anon Raider snowboard helmet will be more to your liking. This skate-style lid has everything you need, wrapped up in clean, subtle packaging.
“This skate-style lid has everything you need, wrapped up in clean, subtle packaging”
While some lids are built like bike helmets with a ‘one and done’ system, the ‘Endura-Shell’ ABS construction of the Anon Raider is designed to take multiple knocks. That makes it a little heavier than some other systems, but worth the minimal extra weight if you want long-lasting protection.
Any helmet worth its salt has to be able to keep you comfortable as well as protected, which is why this has a fleece lining that makes it appropriate for even the coldest days. The earpads and lining can be removed, if you prefer to wear this over a beanie.
