Rippin’ Riders Preview: Boeri Axis Rage Helmet
are no longer accessories. They are a “must have” for kids on the slopes, backcountry
or even in the back yard. Boeri has been a leader in helmet manufacturing for
years. Here’s the scoop on the Boeri Axis helmet.
The Boeri Axis comes in
three models: The Competition, Rage and Performance. Our testers will review the
Rage, a shorter version, with removable neck piece. The Axis is built on technology.
- Chimney vents draw hot
air out of helmet for improved comfort
- Range density EPS liner for improved protection
- Variable thickness shell for flexibility and stiffness in appropriate areas
- Excess heat generated by the body is absorbed into the OUTLASTä micro-thermal
foam, reducing overheating
- Heat is distributed throughout the OUTLASTä micro-thermal foam reducing cold
spots - Stored heat is released back to body as needed, maintaining your own temperature
The Axis Rage weighs in
at only 18 ounces. Very lightweight. The chin strap is protected for comfort.
Boeri has a unique program
for helmets that are involved in a collision or impact during normal use (translated:
crash, yard sale, bonk, etc.). You get a free inspection service through Boeri
Sport USA. If upon inspection it is determined that your helmet is not suitable
for additional protective use, Boeri Sport USA will notify you and arrange for
a minimal cost replacement of the same or comparable helmet from the current product
line. If no damage is detected, your helmet will be promptly returned.
Boeri recommends replacement
of your helmet at a minimum of every four years. The protective capabilities of
Boeri Ski and Snowboarding helmets lesson over time.
Helmet fit is a
very important aspect of purchasing a helmet. Quality sports shops can test your
helmet fit or use these Boeri guidelines for fit
