Product Info

If you're already smart, stay that way by wearing the K2 Rival Pro Audio Helmet when you're shredding. Lightweight, simple in design, and extremely comfortable, the K2 Rival Pro will protect your head from rough impacts while keeping you connected to your music and mobile devices. Style and function doesn't get much better than this.

Product Details

Construction

In-MoldIn-Mold is the premium construction for ultra-lightweight performance helmets and is characterized by an EPS liner that is molded directly to a lightweight polycarbonate shell. The result is a construction so light you'll forget it is even there.

Ventilation

Passive-Channel Venting™Channels on the inside surface of the EPS direct air flow between your head and the helmet, removing moisture and excess heat, and keeping you dry and comfortable all day long.

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.

This helmet has already saved me once or twice and its my first season ever with one. I cracked my head on the ice off of a kicker early in the season and it took it like a champ. No issues with denting, but it does have some hairline scratches that I would expect from a glossy black helmet. The audio is clear and the controls are easy to use. I really like the removable cord, its nice not having to fish the wire out of my jacket when I want to take it off. The only thing I wanted more of in this helmet was bright colors, other than that I'm pleased.

My Brother got it for me for Christmas. He made me take it the Sunday before Christmas and luckily, I listened. I fell hard enough to actually break the helmet (landed straight on my head on a solid sheet of ice). I really liked the helmet, just wish it held up better after one fall. Granted, I did fall REALLY hard on an icy part of the mountain; but regardless, the helmet should hold up better. With all the pros I really wish I could recommend it, but considering that it broke, I would not.

            Not solid blue, but still cool looking. Comfy with boa, no nagging ear pinching like other helmets I've had. Tunes are good too, could have better speakers but good enough. Great price now!

              This helmet works. It's pretty low profile not too bulky has the Oakley canopy so the larger goggles for nice. And the audio is a nice quality and an nice added bonus. Overall good fit and comfortable

                      I bought this for me and my wife. The helmets worked great except for the audio. I don't listen to music when I'm on the mountain so this wasn't a big deal for me. The connection seemed touchy and would staticky. Otherwise I liked this helmet

                        Comments about K2 Rival Pro Audio Helmet:

                        The helmet itself is very lightweight and comfortable. It stands on its own as a fine helmet but do not buy this helmet if you are purchasing based on the audio capabilities.

                        The speakers are extremely quiet. In a quiet room they will serve as gentle background music. On the hill you will barely hear them on the lift and you will not hear them at all while riding or skiing.

                        I plan on purchasing aftermarket speakers to replace the junk that came with the helmet.

                          This helmet is really comfortable with the adjustable fleece liner. I like the bright colors, and the sound was good. It doesn't get super loud but loud enough to bump some tunes and still hear people around you.

                          It loses a star on the passive venting system, on a cold windy day the holes on one side in front let a bunch of air in to make a cold spot on my forehead. It would be nice if it had some kind of adjustment to open/close the vents, and also vents on both sides are probably going to be wanted come spring.

                                Great Helmet, Is nice and warm with a soft chin pad. The inside comes out and is washable which is very nice. Been using this about 20 days now, haven't hit my head yet so i can't attest to its durability. The speakers are nice, they don't get too loud which is ok with me. Overall I am really glad I got such a great deal on this helmet.

                                    Great fit-inner adjustments work great; lightweight; audio is so easy to use and works great also.

                                      My Brother got it for me for Christmas. He made me take it the Sunday before Christmas and luckily, I listened. I fell hard enough to actually break the helmet (landed straight on my head on a solid sheet of ice). I really liked the helmet, just wish it held up better after one fall. Granted, I did fall REALLY hard on an icy part of the mountain; but regardless, the helmet should hold up better. With all the pros I really wish I could recommend it, but considering that it broke, I would not.

                                            Bought this for my son for his birthday. He loves it and says it fits his Round small head great. I has noted its Warm, Comfortable, and he can hear the music while screaming down just about anything. He like it and will wear it. To me that says a lot. It gives me comfort in knowing he is taking his health seriously.

                                              Very comfortable, warm, and super lightweight. Hugs the head with a soft fleece. easy to adjust. Addition of built in audio is great.

                                                I have been snowboarding for 17 years and this is the best helmet I have bought yet (however there are many great helmets on the market today). It's comfy, warm, protects your noggin, etc.
                                                The venting could be a little better if the front vent was on both sides of the helmet, but it's still not bad. The helmet dents easily, but I don't mind that (personal preference).

                                                    So this is a solid helmet. Good construction and comfortable fit even on my King Kong sized noggin. My only issue is the speakers are a little quiet. I would say though that the speakers lack depth and clarity. K2 would have done better to charge another 10$ and go for higher fidelity speakers.

                                                        The helmet was great. I have been snowboarding for about 5 years and this is the first helmet I have purchased. I bought it because last year I ended up with a pretty nasty concussion. I only got to use it a few times this year but it was great, it fit right, sounded great and definitely kept me from getting a few concussions! What i really liked most is that even in the coldest days it still kept my head plenty warm while still breathing and not making me sweat. The only downfall i found was the volume wasn't really that loud, which for me did not matter as I always board with friends so It was nice to be able to hear them over my music. But overall a Great product.

                                                          Great, lightweight helmet. Audio works really well and you're able to hear people and things happening around you.

Not completly the helmet's fault but the plastic that the helmet is made out of is weak and flimsy and the dents almost broke through the plastic. Still I wore it out on the mountain and it was nice, very lightweight and the speakers are good. But it still dented a few more times when I fell. I mean its definitely nice that my head wasn't what was getting dented but I'd rather not have to buy a new helmet next year b/c my helmet is too dented. I rode with a Smith Helmet for the last 5-6 years and it got scraped up but I had no issues with dents, I just needed a new one to cover more of my skull.
