Ski goggles and visor helmets: a piste-full of new models!
Winter holidays are never the same from year to year. Following on from the most stylish models from 2022, it’s now time to discover the very latest in design and technical innovation. This season features our favorite goggles, but also a selection of helmets with integrated visors for tearing up the powder in total safety.
Whether white-outs to stunning sunshine, while optimum anti-UV protection comes as standard, brands are pushing boundaries to improve visibility, contrast, color, adjustability, and even the field of view. Comfort and safety – with an eco-friendly twist – are priceless.

Ski helmets with integrated visors
We also wanted to tell you about visor helmets, as these 2-in-1 products are effective and comfortable for goggle-wearers and all-round practical options for everyone.
