Ski Club's Frankie Doherty reviewed the SHRED. Totality helmet in Andorra
SHRED are renowned for providing a safe and durable fit in their large range of helmets. Their unique RES technology allows for the comfort of feeling safe, whilst their stylish design allows for a relatively low-profile wear, despite the large branding sticker on the side of the helmet. This season I took the SHRED TOTALITY helmet to an unseasonably warm ski weekend in Andorra, to test out it’s fit and durability.
At first trial the padding on the ears gave for a snug fit, with the handy adjustment wheel at the back of the helmet providing for an easy mechanism for fitting, easy to use even whilst wearing mittens. Unfortunately, I did find that the plastic inner liner caused some discomfort for the first few runs of the day. Thankfully, SHRED have done a great job of accounting for this possibility by offering an easy further adjustment system inside of the helmet; like the way that you would imagine adjusting the back of a baseball cap. You can pop the ventilation system in to one of three switches to move the liner up or down, ensuring maximum comfort and fit. The ease of use allows for time to stop to make sure that the fit is correct, rather than just skiing through the discomfort or with an unsafe fit.
