Pret helmets are engineered and designed to disappear. Every detail, every piece of technology, every curve, and every material is poured over by our design team so you don’t ever have to think about it on the hill. Every Pret helmet provides the ultimate combination of performance, durability and safety. This technology actually lends itself to our lightweight design, so you can forget you’re wearing a helmet but still feel protected on every run. Plus, with MIPS® to better handle certain impacts we can keep pushing the envelope for snow sports safety and performance.That’s transparent design.

Mountains are different from labs
MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) technology comes standard is all Pret X helmets. MIPS sets the highest standard in helmet protection and safety using a low-friction slip plane designed to rotate inside the helmet, absorbing rotational energy and reducing the tearing effect on the brain.Not all MIPS systems are the same. Pret uses only the latest C2 system for the lightest weight and best fit.
Dial in Your Fit
Part of how we achieve Pret's comfortable and dynamic fit is through our unique Ripcord System (RCS) adjustment. This micro-adjustable, compact, and ergonomic system guarantees the perfect inside fit and shape with 4cm of adjustment in every shell size. Need to make a quick size change? You can instantly release the RCS by pulling the adjustment dial out.
Protection Where it Matters Most
Pret's Advanced Construction Technology (ACT) is the result of decades of experience in helmet construction, design and testing. Using optimized materials and construction, key zones are reinforced to add strength, protection and durability without any weight penalty. ACT delivers the strongest and lightest helmets on the market.
Flexibility At Its Finest
Goggle to Helmet Fit
A key to our transparent approach to design is the fit between your goggles and the helmet itself. Each Pret helmet is design to match the curvature of popular goggle frames, eliminating the brain freeze gap and allowing efficient venting. The strap on the rear of the helmet keeps your goggles from completely yard-saling during a fall and is easily removable if you are in need of a repair or replacement.

Pret uses XT2 anti-odor antimicrobial fabric technology in our liners. Here's how it works:
STEP 1 - Odor happens. Naturally occurring bacteria on your body product odor.
STEP 2 - Sweat activates the silver ions in the yarn that inhibit microbes on the fabric and eliminate the odor quickly and efficiently.
