The new Ranger2 Helmet embodies Salomon’s approach to resort skiing – performance and comfort, to boost confidence and skill for every skier, everyday.
Anthony Marguet, Salomon’s Helmet Product Manager knows that “Frontside skiing is about confidence and comfort. If you trust your equipment in more situations, you can ski with more confidence. That just makes every day better. So of course we included our best safety advancements into the Ranger2. It’s a just another way to help skiers focus on having fun.”
Technology improvements have now brought greater performance to it’s Ranger2 and women’s Icon2 with the introduction of EPS 4D.
Salomon undertook extensive studies of the causes and types of impact associated with ski injuries and 2 types of impacts that helmets emerged. The first is direct, or vertical impact. The other is oblique impact, which means a glancing blow or indirect hit.
Developed in collaboration with doctors and researchers from the Laboratory of Applied Biomechanics at the University of Marseille, EPS 4D is able to manage both of these impacts, absorbing 30% more impact than the industry requirement.
They’ve also worked hard to ensure performance doesn’t impact style or value, recognising that skiers want to look good out there, and don’t want to spend a fortune.
It keeps the low profile design and basic fit that have made it sought after for years, and the Custom Air system for a personalized fit. They’ve also introduced a new AdvancedSkin ActiveDry liner, helping to manage moisture and temperature for all day comfort.
