    Multisport helmet

    So I'm basically an AM rider, most of the time I use my normal bike helmet, but once in a while do more of a freeride type ride where I'd like a freeride/DH type helmet. But I also do a lot of skiing, and always ski with a helmet.
    Rather than buying a downhill helmet for the few times it would be used, I'd like to limit my helmets I own to 2! Anyone use or have ideas for ski helmets that work well for freeriding or the occasional whistler day? Is there any real "multisport" helmets out there?

    Thanks!

    In the order of increasing protection and decreasing ventilation:

    Kong Scarab. This one is a very convenient one.
    POC Receptor
    POC Cortex - fullface.

    Ohh that THE one looks nice, my head doesn't get cold skiing. Not psyched on the graphics but not bad. The Poc ones look ok too.

    I actually ride with this helmet in Florida no less. I wear a bandana so it keeps the sweat off my face. A little hot but it works fine for me.

    The ear flaps come off and some of the insulation pulls out inside the helmet.

    Receptor+ is good. Certified for snow, bike, skateboarding, and kayaking, like Scarab. (I think Scarab is certified for horseback instead of snow).
    Earpads and liner are removable.

    I already do this.

    My multisport helmet is a Giro Remedy.

    Very well ventilated helmet, good for XC, AM and extreme skiing

    If you are contemplating an open face helmet that can be used for DH "once or twice" - I think you will be better off, both for protection and financially by buying one of the cheaper full face bike helmets - like one from Bell, or Giro - they can be found on sale. Remedy at Jenson is $72, Bell can be found around $50. And stick with you ski specific helmet. Maybe get one of back protectors - or wear Deuter Attack backpack. Its you head and your back.

    Yes it is well ventilated so you have channels of cold air over your head while skiing.
    This can be easily fixed with a light balaclava - I don't need one though.
    It is much harder making a warmer helmet cool down for MTB

    i use a bern macon for skiing and biking. it's got removable earflaps and liner to keep your head warm skiing, but they're super easy to take out. i wouldn't be super comfortable using it as a DH helmet, but it's treated me well for XC/all mountain use, as well as terrain park and BC use skiing.
