A go-to helmet for skiers wanting a more light weight with the sleek, half shell look of an in-molded helmet, the M2 by Marker is a champion head guardian with its in-molded technology which merges the external thermoplastic ABS material with an internal EPS shell, providing the helmet with unsurpassed strength and durability. In-molded technology also offers superior scratch protection, resisting damage from that first run through the trees and for many years of hard use. The external shell, constructed of ABS, maintains the strength and resistance features even at very low temperatures and where normal thermoplastic materials lose their strength characteristics. Distributing pressure in a wider area during impact, the internal shell, made of polystyrene, absorbs the energy produced during impact but with a density that provides the lightest helmet possible. With a goggle strap holder built in, this helmet makes it so your goggles stay right where you place them, preventing them from sliding down or off as you race down the hill. Equipped with a hypoallergenic and antibacterial liner, the M2 prevents that funky smell that comes with long, strenuous days out on the slopes. The M2 Natural Flow Design features unique air flow vents that provide the ideal ventilation and air flow around the head - without the uncomfortable rush of direct hard air currents. The M2 also features removable ear pads. ASTM and CE certified, the M2 is easily one of the best helmets available and the most stylish.
