Shred Django Audio Helmet Review
Offers great protection, ventilation and comfort
Pricey and only comes in medium (54-58cm) or large (60-64cm)
Excellent protection for serious boarders & skiers
$169 (1-year limited warranty)
Already a popular brand name on the racing circuit, Shred doesn't seem to be as well known among mainstream skiers and boarders. The Django is a lightweight, high performance snow helmet that can actually be used year round. It incorporates the Shred Soft Fit System, which uses Velcro to adjust the helmet to your head for the most comfortable fit. Its SHREDry liner is designed to keep you dry and regulate your body temperature based on the weather around you. The SHREDVent system also works to keep your head cool and your goggles fog-free with 6 adjustable sliding vents. With an awesome built-in audio system, you'll be cruising down the mountain in one of the safest, coolest helmets around.
Shred Django is available on www.shredoptics.com for $169.
Product Report Card Grade
We give the SHRED Django helmet an A- because it is an excellent, high-performance helmet for skiing or boarding in style. It is so lightweight and comfortable that you’d almost forget you were wearing it – unless, of course, you are plugged in to its built-in audio system. The Django helmet also features a specially designed wick-dry liner and an amazing adjustable ventilation system, so you can stay dry and have better control over the helmet’s internal temperature. We had to deduct a few points because it is more expensive than typical helmets and because it is only available in two sizes.
