Backpacker Mag Offers High Praise for Shred's Slam Cap NoShock Helmet

November 17, 2017 1 min read

We designed the Slam Cap NoShock helmet to be especially light—without sacrificing comfort or protection. It’s no wonder it’s the go-to helmet many of our athletes, employees, and friends grab when heading out the door—be it to lap the resort or earn some turns.

After using and abusing the helmet extensively this past winter, the gear testers at Backpacker are quick to sing its praise. In the November 2017 Gear Guide, Backpacker notes that “Our Colorado tester loved using the Slam Cap for everything from backcountry tours to fat biking trips along the Front Range.” After all, it sports both U.S. and European certifications for snowsports and biking. And given how light this lid is, you might find yourself wearing it long after you kick off your boots or step off the bike. As one of the testers asserts, “This helmet is so light, I forgot I was wearing it when I started to drive home from the slopes.” And as icing on the cake, Backpacker bills it as the "Best Value Helmet" in the game.
