Statistics regarding avalanche survival will make you appreciate the Aeros Helmet as a must-have for all backcountry skiers. With snowslides often being caused by practicing the extreme sport in a given area, people would benefit enormously from a lifesaving item such a this.
Christina Hsu has developed this sophisticated concept for a very versatile piece of snow sport protection. The headgear is smooth and streamlined and suitable for wearing comfortably on the slopes. It integrates a tinted visor to eliminate the need for separate goggles. Should an avalanche occur, the wearer can extend the visor downwards to create full face mask. With this, one is given an air pocket for breathing while buried. Furthermore, the Aeros Helmet has compact air tanks. Located near the ears, they provide direct oxygen flow with a reserve of up to 25 minutes.
