Whether you’re an urban skateboarder, weekend snowboarder, freestyle skier, bike messenger, whitewater kayaker, rock climber, or roller derby chick, chances are you’re either already wearing and loving your Bern helmet, or you’ve been noticing their sick style on the slopes and you’re looking to try one on for size. Bern Unlimited specializes in making head protection for non-motorized sports, innovating new technology, optimizing comfort and leading the pack on the style front. The history of Bern Unlimited Helmets starts with Denis Leedom who founded the company back in July 2004. He assembled a team of partners to join him in his 500 sq ft barn and began designing an all season helmet that could be used for multiple sports  --  which would save ski bums money and space in their closets. Bern started with a slow burn, but shot into the spotlight when Seth Wescott won the 2006 Olympic Gold in Snowboard Cross in Torino, Italy. These days Bern does all their design and development in Massachusetts and you can find the Bern Helmet Official Website at

Bern helmets are made with 4 different combos of technology and materials:

Bern Helmet vs. Hard Hat:
Keep in mind that Zipmold and EPS helmets meet action sports head safety requirements, but Hard Hat helmets do not. Hard Hat helmets are meant to protect against multiple lower force impacts. Take a look at the Bern helmet safety rating before buying to make sure you get the protection you need.

Bern makes All Season helmets, so each one comes with either a summer or winter liner that easily snaps out. You can play the Bern helmet liner upgrade game when you buy the other liners separately. Snap in a different liner when the season changes and you want to wear your snowboard helmet to the skate park or your bike helmet to the ski slopes.  Easy to remove, you can always wash your Bern helmet liners to keep ‘em fresh.

The Bern Helmet Sink Fit offers low-profile style, a deep surround fit and a lightweight feel. They make their helmets in multiple shell sizes to ensure the right balance between profile and fit. The Bern Helmet visor and or vents can be found on some styles, but all Bern helmets have that unmistakable classic skater helmet shape. It’s easy to get a seamless fit with your Bern helmet and goggles, the snow helmets come with a removable goggle clip in the back.
