Product Info

K2 Rival Pro Audio Helmet: The K2 Rival Pro Audio Helmet is the choice for the ultimate lightweight and simplistic design. Its combination of style, performance and fit creates the perfect helmet for all day shredding.

Product Details

Vents

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

Goggle Compatibility

Removable goggle lock securely retains the goggle strap on the helmet to ensure stability, comfort, and performance.

Adjustability

The K2 dialed Fit System creates a custom-fitting helmet no matter what your head shape. An ergonomically inspired three-point adjustable interface maximizes fit and customization with the twist of a dial. This allows for ultimate convenience of being able to make fit adjustments on the fly. The end result is a customized helmet fit just for you.

Full Wrap liner provides full-coverage, and the 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. No gaps, equals better fit and more comfort.

Additional Features

In-Mold is the premium construction for ultra-lightweight performance helmets and is characterized by an EPS liner that molded directly to a lightweight poly-carbonate (PC) shell.

The Level 3 Baseline Audio System integrates a set of headphones and on-cord mini-mic connects to your cell phone or audio player. A detachable cord, single squeeze button for pause/play and answer/hang up.

The helmet was pretty much what I expected it to be. It fit very well and was lighter than I expected, which was very good. The speakers in the ear pads was pretty good. The volume from my cell phone wouldn't allow me to crank up the music too loud. The wire that is provided seems a bit flimsy, so I wish K2 would have use a better quality. Overall I'm satisfied. It didn't blow me out of the water, and it is a better solution than wearing ear buds.

      Comments about K2 Rival Pro Audio Helmet:

      The K2 Rival Pro is a good fit for a longer face. I'm not saying you have to have a horse face to use it, but if you're round and short-faced then get yourself a Bern Watts. The speakers sounds great and the helmet is super comfortable and looks dope. It's comfortable and you can cynch it tighter or looser with the little knob on the back. Oh, and you can wear a balaclava under it just fine. Sweet!

          The helmet is great. K2's system for the insert was excellent, it felt like i was wearing a stocking cap all day. The helmet fit perfectly with my oakley goggles. Very lightweight. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was that the headphones are a little on the quiet side.

            The audio in this helmet is unbelievable..... If you use your iPhone for your music, you can answer your phone and talk to whoever as your going down the mountain. Very convenient when your a business owner and need to be able to talk at any time......sound clarity and volume level for both music and phone is awesome.

              Comments about K2 Rival Pro Audio Helmet:

              Great overall helmet. The audio control and mic are pretty much just like the ones that come on apple headphones. It's comfy, warm, and the sound is really good and plenty loud. Microphone works well too.

              The click wheel fit is nice, and lets you adjust it if you are wearing a helmet hat or not.

              Only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars was the size chart doesn't seam accurate. I ordered a medium because I was at the upper part of that range, but when it came it was just too tight on the biggest setting. Evo was great and exchanged it for a large, which fits much better and gives me adjusting room both ways. So if your head circumference is near the top of the small or medium range, I'd buy a size up.

                          After many years, I finally got my first helmet. I tried on many hoping to find mu glass slipper. I have a small head, so it was tough to find a well fitting helmet that doesn't make me look ridiculous. This helmet doesn't. Also, it works fairly well with my Oakley goggles. It is warm, and the dial helps maintain a snug fit, even with a thin beanie on. Due to other reviews, I have my own audio cable, since people complained about the one that comes with he helmet. The audio sounds great and the speakers don't hinder the warmth and comfort of the ear pads which is nice.

                            This helmet was perfect. Loved the design and color of the white. It's more matte than gloss but isn't a full matte. The inside is fully lined down to the ear cups with faux fur that is extremely comfortable. And since it is lined with this, the get a nice even pressure all the way around the head instead of a few foam contact points like with other healmets. The only downsides really that I saw were the non adjustable vents and the cord that comes with for the speaker-mp3 player connection is of pretty low quality, and I would suggest buying a new one.

                                I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. I have never worn a helmet myself so i spent a lot of time looking at various options. I wanted something lightweight with adjustable sizing and ventilation, and removable padding for various climates. This has all those things, and the built in audio was an added bonus. After much research I am very happy with this product. He loves it and can't wait to test it out!

                                  The helmet was pretty much what I expected it to be. It fit very well and was lighter than I expected, which was very good. The speakers in the ear pads was pretty good. The volume from my cell phone wouldn't allow me to crank up the music too loud. The wire that is provided seems a bit flimsy, so I wish K2 would have use a better quality. Overall I'm satisfied. It didn't blow me out of the water, and it is a better solution than wearing ear buds.

                                  It's a lightweight, where it counts....

                                  Very comfortable and warm. It's so light I don't even know its on.
