Product Info

With the Pret Effect Helmet, Pret designers have added serious strength and impact resistance by integrating carbon composite panels in strategic areas of the top, rear and sides of the shell while keeping the weight down by using an in-mold polycarbonate structure as a base. They finished up the package by including a fully adjustable VTT3 venting system, removable Covert Ear covers, the dial-a-fit RCS Fit System, and even an odor-vanquishing X-Static® liner. That my friend, is the effect of the Pret Effect Helmet.

    Comments about Pret Effect Helmet:

    Downhill skiing; super light weight & really like the low profile (i.e. anti-bobble-head) look!; ventilation options allow for full season use from -5 deg Jan days at the Loaf to 60 deg spring skiing days at the River; removing/iserting the ear flaps is much easier than on other brands I've owned; every helmet should have a magentic chin strap closure...such a simple but awesome idea!!! The only downside (and it's a personal preference) is that I like a slightly more extended visor whereas the Pret model I bought has only a slight extension.

    Comments about Pret Effect Helmet:

    This fits really well, and the overall feel of the helmet is that it's really high quality. I love the extra bells and whistles like the magnetic chin strap, the 3-setting vents, and the adjustment button quick-release. It's really apparent that Pret really lives their products, the features are simple innovations from and for skiers.

    Haven't had to use it yet for a crash, but it feels really solid despite being light weight and low-profile.

        Comments about Pret Effect Helmet:

        I tried on a TON of helmets. I'm between a medium and large, and a lot of large helmets look and feel bulky for me, especially helmets with good vents since by design those need more bulk.

        First, the Pret Effect has a nice, quality feel. Compared with the Giro line that feels kind of cheap overall, the Pret clasps and vent levers snap in place and feels really solid. Pads are really comfortable. The fit was fantastic and easy to dial in.

        The Pret lineup has several well thought out features that make a noticeable difference. The vents have three settings - on, off, and half-on - that make it easy to control heat. The buckle snaps in with a magnet so its convenient to clip on with gloves on. The dial-adjust system can be released by pulling out the knob so every time you put on the helmet it's easy to get the right fit.

        Looks nice, good quality, and has awesome features. With a good price.

        I don't know how well it protects since luckily I haven't crashed in it.
