Product Info

Beanies are cool until you crash and turn into a vegetable. Don't let the vegans get their way; wear the K2 Diversion Audio Helmet. The Diversion comes fully equipped with Dual Active Matrix Venting that lets you regulate airflow with the flip of a switch, 360 K2Dialed Fit System™ which delivers an enhanced adjustable fit that eliminates pressure points, and K2's Level 3 Baseline Audio System that connects to all your mobile devices for premium on slope entertainment.

Product Details

Construction

HybridThis unique construction features the best of both In-Mold and Hard-Shell constructions. The primary In-Mold construction makes the helmet incredibly light, while the secondary Hard-Shell upper allows for more advanced Active Matrix Venting™ and increased durability.

Ventilation

Dual Active Matrix Venting™Active Matrix Venting allows you to regulate the airflow of the helmet vent system with the touch of your finger. Controlling large vents with minimal effort results in superior style and function that adjusts on the fly. It's climate control with the flip of a switch.

Adjustability

360 K2Dialed Fit System™An evolution of the K2Dialed Fit System™, the new 360 k2Dialed Fit System™ delivers unparalleled customization. A web design that is integrated into the textile liner provides maximum comfort and a secure fit. Thanks to more evenly distributed pressure, the all-new 360 K2Dialed Fit System™ eliminates unwanted pressure points regardless of your head shape.

Additional Features

Full-Wrap LinerThis full-coverage, washable liner snugly cradles your head, creating the unmatched fit of a K2 helmet. The liner features a crown mesh that wicks moisture and breathes to prevent overheating. There are no gaps, which means a better fit and improved comfort.

K2 Level 3 Baseline AudioThe K2 Level 3 Baseline Audio system seamlessly connects you with your cell phone or media player. The audio system comes pre-installed in Baseline Audio Earpads. The speaker housing creates a minimal, low-profile stowage so you won't notice the speakers unless the music is playing. If you would rather ride without the speakers installed, they can be easily removed from the earpads with a detachable cord and an all-new on-cord audio controller for initiating the on-the-go pause/play and answer/hang-up functions, your media device is literally at your fingertips.

K2's done it again. I also have been wearing the K2 Thrive helmet, but it's just a bit too warm for sunny days. Very toasty... Too toasty. I needed something else.

But then Evo goes and has a great sale on the Diversion. SOLD! This lid is way nice: super light, fits perfectly out of the box, great fit adjustment options, Active Matrix venting lets tons of air in if you want it, none if you don't, decent speakers built in, without having to buy them separately, decent orange colors compliment each other. I wear the Smith I/O and the Spy Platoon goggles, and the fit is OK with this helmet. Nothing to complain about at least.

Great helmet horrible cord

Helmet is very comfortable but the phone cord is very flimsy and does not last. K2 should really provide a more durable cord to connect the music source to the helmet. It only lasted...Read complete review

Helmet is very comfortable but the phone cord is very flimsy and does not last. K2 should really provide a more durable cord to connect the music source to the helmet. It only lasted a bit over one days use. Would have rated five stars if the cord lasted

            L fits my 7-1/2 hat size head well and is adjustable for some wiggle room. Liner is warm and washable for after days it ends up sweaty. Vents help some with heat control. Looks great. Built in audio compatibility is nice to not have to buy additional parts/pieces.

                    I haven't ever worn a heet till last week in Colorado,very comfortable, many adjustable vents & I love the adjustable knob for comfort fit. I think it's better to have & not need than to need & not have. K2 did an Awsome job on the helmet & the speakers sound great.

                    This helmet was perfect. Great sound, comfortable,lots of air vents & love the adjustable knob for more snug fitting the back. I have never worn a helmet skiing till this year in Colorado. Better to have & not need than to need & not have. Love this helmet, my go pro fits on top in the middle or towards the front. Great job K2 that's why I switched to K2 skies..... Great products haven't been let down yet....
