ANON RODAN HELMET REVIEW
This winter Burton have stopped making helmets under the RED brand and have released a range under the Anon umbrella. So while this is technically Anon’s first year making helmets, in practise they had a wealth of experience to draw upon when designing the new range. This Rodan helmet is a mid-level model with a mini-peak. It’s got removable ear-flaps, a comfy chin strap and a Boa fit system which means that one-size fits all.
BERN WATTS HELMET REVIEW
Bern claim to have invented the skate-style peaked helmet, and they have the patent to prove it. This is their second-generation model, and they’ve emphasised that peak by making it a different colour. There are two versions of this helmet available, the EPS foam one, which meets European Union safety standards for snowboarding, and the hard hat version, which is lighter but doesn’t meet the safety criteria. It’s worth making sure which one you’re buying as they look the same.
