Giro Nine.9 Audio Helmet:
Whether you ski or ride, tuck or huck, nobody likes to wear a helmet that adds excess weight up top, especially if you do complicated moves in high places where every ounce hangs in a crucial balance. Excluding kid's helmets, the Giro Nine.9 is the lightest model from the company and one of the lightest performance freeride/freestyle designs on the market. What the Nine.9 loses in weight it retains in features, including soft removable ear pads, included Weatherstrip vent plugs for cold days, and the best perk of all: The Tune Ups headphone system. This sonic solution to slope side silence features a frequency response range of 20-20,000 hz. in an acoustical earpad system that hovers millimeters from your earlobes. No more enduring embedded earbuds or sweat-soaked headphone pads. The coiled cord was designed for cold weather and hard riding so you can focus on your turns instead of tweaking your tunes. An ergonomically shaped inline volume/mute control makes it easy to crank it up or turn it down whenever you need to hear the praise of your pals. If you don't want tunes, the earpads are removable and the system stows easily in any small pocket. You ride better with rhythm--plug in today.
