Helmet selection should only come down to protection, but like all things it’s not that simple. Scott’s Scream helmet is made with an ABS hard shell and meets the current CE EN 1077 certification. Yeah I have no clue what that means, but apparently it represents some of the toughest testing conditions for ski helmets at this time. Shock absorption, penetration by a pointed object and field of view are all tested. That’s pretty rad and now that we know it’s safe we can move on to style and comfort.
I love the Scream’s clean and minimalist look. I don’t need a helmet with distinct contours or obnoxious visors; rather a low-profile option with appropriate venting and a good fit is ideal. The Scream’s deflected venting system ensures the cold air travels around your dome without hitting your forehead. Removable ear covers and goggle retainer allow you to wear the helmet any way you like. Unfortunately though the helmet doesn’t have much in the way of customizing fit, but a padding kit with 3 sizes ensures you can find a solution that works.
It makes sense that the Scream is Tom Wallisch’s helmet of choice. Not only does it “Scream” style but it’ll transition seamlessly from the park to the backcountry. I’m stoked to have found a such a simple piece that’ll get the job done.
Mt. Everest's summit season is off to a tragic start, as the body of an Indian man was spotted earlier this morning, marking the fourth fatality of the weekend on the world's highest peak. Sherpa rescuers have spotted the body of the missing climber, Ravi Kumar. The body was impossible to retrieve as he'd fallen 650 ft. below his intended route. Climbers from the United States, Australia, and Slovakia also died en route trying to summit Everest this weekend. Bad weather conditions had
The 29 year old Spanish alpinist who had set speed records for summitting Mt. Kiliminjaro, Mt. Denali, Matterhorn and Mt. Blanc just reached the top of Everest, the world's highest peak in the fastest known time. Jornet left base camp, (elevation, 17,600) around 10:00 pm Saturday, May 20, and was then standing atop the summit midnight Sunday, or technically Monday morning, in just 26 hours after leaving base camp. He ascended the north face without the assistance of any extra oxygen or
When conversations come up about surfing (and they do a lot), New York City is probably not the first place that comes to mind. During the original discussions on where to hold the world premiere of , the new film by Taylor Steele (produced by Teton Gravity Research in association with Garage Productions), we thought of the obvious places first – Orange County, Encinitas, Santa Cruz, Hawaii, Australia, etc – but settled on NYC to show that in spite of the skyscrapers and fast pace of
