The sole job of a snowboard helmet is to protect your head but if you are going to be wearing it all day it's pretty important that it's comfortable. This season's iteration of helmets combine the latest in safety technology, ergonomic design and weight savings for the best of both worlds.

Now is the perfect time to get our kit ready for the day when we can shred again so here are our favourite helmets for 2021.
