Pro-tec Ace Freecarve Helmet - 2009 BCS
Trust the Protec Ace Freecarve helmet to keep your dome protected and warm when charging the steep and deep. One of the first, and most imitated snowboard helmets, the Ace features low-key style and adjustable ventilation. On a powder day, close off the Ace's four passive vents, or leave them open for a spring rail or pipe session. Protec gave the Ace Freecarve Helmet a high density, injection-molded ABS shell for durability and an EPS liner to absorb the impact of bigger hits. A goggle shelf and clip assures you won't leave your goggles a hundred feet uphill when you eat it and ragdoll.

Gift for a 11 year old boy who is a rough kid. Came back with a story of a metal bar bending and not a scratch on the helmet after a crash. Still had a smile on his face. He's stoked to have this helmet. Once he grows out of this one, I think we'll get him another in a larger size!

Protec's Ace Freecarve Helmet is great for all types of mountain riding. This is the original style from the first line of snowboard helmets and it's a classic for a reason. It's rugged design can take a chunk of falling ice or a brutal bail. I agree with the other reviewers; the helmet runs small in size. I have a smaller head for a female and wear a medium in protec. Best suggestion is to up a size for this company (if you wear medium order a large). The reviews are correct about protec running small. The vents offer a good amount of cool air into the helmet, however, I love keeping them closed and staying warm. The goggle strap is super helpful and easy to secure with gloves on. I'll say that Protec is one of my favorite companies..so I'm a little biased. There are plenty of awesome helmet companies on the market and the most important thing is to protect your brains! For $39 this helmet is an awesome deal.
