Despite what your season pass may say, the Anon Nelson Helmet is really your all-access pass to winter's outdoor playground. This lightweight, low-profile cranium case protects your melon with the Hybrid 70/30 build that blends in-mold and injection-molded construction for a barely-there feel. But not to worry, it features ding resistance in high-wear areas, too. Fit defines function when focused on helmets―the Nelson features the Boa fit system so you can finely tune the fit every time you don this helmet. You also get some extra fit options from the Simple Fit system, which lets you take out the ear pads and liner to make room for a beanie under the helmet, if that's how you roll.
Hot headed much? Permanent vents draw fresh air in and send hot, moist air flying out of the back. Actively adjustable vents let you open up the moonroof when breaking trail through three feet of snow or put your head on lockdown in the face of a bitter north wind. The earpads are ready for a Skullcandy audio system if the only way you rock the mountain is by rocking to the steady beat of John Denver remixes. When you add the Nelson to your repertoire, you get cranial coverage without sacrificing the ability to buy an après-ski digestif.
