For extreme sports enthusiasts in search of the utmost protection year-round, Bern recently developed a carbon fiber version of their stylish Macon, Baker and Watts styles. Taking advantage of the high-tech material, the extremely lightweight carbon shell withstands powerful punches.
The matte carbon models are available either as an EPS-certified helmet (the standard protection level for action sports) or as a Hard Hat—an ultra-ventilated helmet that uses resilient Brock foam technology to survive multiple impacts. Bern offers appropriate sizes for men and women, and their simple snap-in upgrade system easily transitions helmets from summer to winter sports.
The new shells sell from Bern's online shop or outdoor sports stores worldwide for about $215.
