This is the third helmet I own. I bought this one because of the design of the front. It has a flat surface that holds my Gopro perfectly with only the head band. The lower placement of the camera (lower than what the Gopro attachment allows) gives me an excellent view of my skis and partial view of my feet. Other helmets have rounded surfaces and the camera shifts position.

The helmet has the ear pads, so I thought it would be warm but once I got pretty high up in the chair lift my ears were killing me make sure to wear a beenie under the helmet. The back goggle strap doesn't lock/pop into place like most other helmets. I almost lost my goggles on the chairlift because of that and I got super mad I suggest getting a helmet that pops into place!

      Comments about K2 Rant Helmet:

      The design and lightweight is what caught my attention. I first bought the M based off the EVO size charts...it was a little snug. So I then ordered the L, it has an 1/8 of an inch more slop than I would have liked. Can't wait to use it on the slopes.

        Comments about K2 Rant Helmet:

        The goggle attachment doesn't always keep the goggle strap on when you lift up your goggles and rest them on your forehead.
        If you're not aware of this, you could easily lose your goggles.

              I use the helmet for snowboarding. It fits great after 20 minutes you forget that you have it on you. It's incredably easy to adjust it for your head if you now how to adjust the baseball cap you pretty much set.

                    bought this helmet for my son as he's growing and needed a bigger size. he liked this helmet as a replacement for a bern helmet. seems to fit him fairly well, and he hasn't complained of a cold head or ears despite riding in some chilly temps. all around seems to be a pretty good helmet for him so far.

                        This is a really great helmet. I was looking for a low cost helmet and the Rant exceeded expectations. Comfortable, lightweight and fits well. Really nice style too - not bulky at all. Will be using for summer season sports as well seeing it will work well for mountain biking. Have had two good impacts so far and it's held up very well - no damage to the helmet or my head.

                                    I recomend wearing a helmet whenever you get on a board its better to be safe than sorry.

                                        This helmet fits well, and the liner is fairly warm when paired with a thin stocking cap. There are also little ear cup things that you can easily put bluetooth headphones in.

                                          Fit well straight out of the box. I'd seen some complaints about the goggle strap clasp - this really isn't an issue as you can wear your strap lower or simply inside the helmet. The look of the helmet is clean and good interface with my Oakley Splices. Plenty warm and the baseball cap adjuster is easy to use. Tends to overheat on hotter days.

                                          The tabs that hold the straps on the helmet broke off poor design.

                                                    I'm a alpine patrols with the NSP and ski alot. This is the best helmet I have seen and tried. Looks good, fits great, and is solid without being crazy heavy. The added safety helmet gives us while skiing is awesome, and this helmet has it in spades, along with style and comfort.

                                                      I bought this helmet for skiing out in Tahoe. Had a K2 helmet that was great before, but needed a bigger size. Thought this one would have the same helmet adjustment, but this one actually is more like a baseball hat adjustment, with spokes. This makes it almost impossible to adjust the helmet to fit your head. It's really hard to adjust too. I would not recommend this helmet specifically because of this system, unless you think the helmet will fit perfect as-is.
