    Klim 4 helmet is bonk tested and approved!

     Like most snowmobilers, I know a helmet is a must for safety, warmth and to be legal. BUT, I didn't really consider the importance of a HIGH quality helmet until I had an accident. Klim's F4 aerospace fiberglass, carbon fiber and Kevlar helmet truly was a little life saver. On a recent snowmobile trip I had a small 'get-off' and my head hit a patch of ice. After the powerful crash the helmet came away with only a few scratches and dings. I suffered the bonk on the head but had no serious injuries and able to write this review, which without a high quality helmet would not have been possible!  The F4 exceeds Snell M2010 and U.S. DOT standards.

    I will admit I was always timid when it came to open face helmets. The thought of possibly being cold kept me away. Until I gave Klim's F4 helmet and Radius Pro Snow Goggle a try on a backcountry clinic weekend in Copper Harbor, Michigan. To start, there was no fogging the entire weekend! This was a first for me! The air induction system and EPS air channels pushed fresh air into the helmet making it easy to breath and stay cool but not cold. For the first time I didn't sweat in a helmet! I did keep the Windstopper Cold-Weather Snap-In liner in and above the tip of my nose. This kept my nose from running and getting cold. Pric: $399.
