Our Brainpower Protects Yours

PRET X was developed with direct input from our professional athletes to create a helmet line that conquers the most demanding conditions on the planet. Places that don’t have lifts or boundaries. Places where product failure isn’t an option.

Our helmets provide the ultimate combination of performance, durability and safety. This technology actually lends itself to our lightweight design, so you can forget you’re wearing a helmet but still feel protected on every run. Plus, with MIPS® to better handle certain impacts and RECCO® for the backcountry, we can keep pushing the envelope for snow sports safety and performance.

That’s transparent design.

Vent Tuning Technology:

You're in Control

The new VTT4 ventilation on the Cirque X opens up like no other helmet to allow for a massive amount of ventilation when you need it most, or shut down completely when conditions call for full protection from the elements. Front and rear channels in the system move the excess air out the back even when the vents are closed. Goggle vents have been optimized to fit and function with top performance goggles.

 

  • Easily adjust the ventilation flow with a switch
  • Extremely low profile design
  • Patent 8,256,032

VTT3

VTT3 is Pret’s unique combination of both indirect airflow and fully adaptable openings. This fully adjustable venting system 
provides optimal comfort and climate control. Directional front intake vents transport cool air through our proprietary labyrinth channels. This creates a capillary action that pulls warm, moist air out of the helmet 
while eliminating direct airflow to eliminate the dreaded “brain freeze.” 
The ultimate all-conditions system.

VTT1

Our highly effective system of vents removes heat and moisture without exposure to the elements. The balance of front intake, top and rear vents controls air throughout the helmet. Vent covers are sewn right into the washable removable liner to completely close the front and top vents. The ultimate solution for simple, highly effective ventilation and lightest possible weight.

Details Make the Difference

Goggle to Helmet Fit

Transparent designs starts with helmets and goggles that fit perfectly together. Our helmets are designed to match the curvature of most of the popular goggle frames, eliminating the brain freeze gap and allowing efficient venting.

Covert Ear Cover System

Quickly and easily remove your ear covers without messing with the fit system. Perfect for hot spring days when you have quick weather changes.

Audio Ready Pockets

Drop in your audio for seamless tunes while cruising the hill. We recommend Outdoor Tech® Chips® audio (not included) for a seamlessly integrated audio experience. However, most earbud style audio systems will fit underneath our Covert ear covers.

MIPS: Science in Action

MIPS: Science in Action

MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) sets a new standard in helmet safety. It was developed by brain surgeons and scientists to help address injury due to rotational acceleration with the goal to reduce rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head.

Here’s the quick version: When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, rotational forces on the brain cause high levels of strain. The stressing of the tissue can result in various types of brain injury. Science has shown that by reducing the sudden strain on the tissue caused by rotational forces coming to a quick stop, it might reduce the severity of the brain injury. MIPS uses a low-friction slip plane system that is designed to rotate inside the helmet, absorbing rotational energy and potentially reducing the rotational energy transfer to the head.
