Pret X:   Incorporating the leading technologies available, PRET X delivers Pret's highest performance to date. We include MIPS® to better handle certain impacts and add RECCO® for added peace of mind in the backcountry. PRET X represents a commitment to continue pushing the envelope.

MIPS®:   When your head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop rotational forces on the brain cause high levels of strain. The stressing of the tissue can result in various types of brain injury. Science has shown that by reducing the sudden strain on the tissue caused by rotational forces coming to a quick stop it might reduce the severity of the brain injury. MIPS uses a low-friction slip plane system that is designed to rotate inside the helmet absorbing rotational energy potentially reducing the rotational energy transfer to the head.

RECCO®:   Technology makes you searchable to professional rescuers in the event of an avalanche accident. The technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim’s precise location using harmonic radar. The two-part technology consists of a RECCO® detector used by 700+ rescue organizations worldwide, and RECCO® reflectors that are integrated into apparel, helmets, protection gear, and boots. The reflector is permanently affixed, requires no training for use and needs no batteries to function.

VTT1 Vent Technology:   A balanced combination of front intake vents and exhaust vents. VTT1 uses fresh air to extract heat and moisture for the perfect temperature. 

RCS Fit System:   Simply pulling up on the adjustment dial and the exclusive Ripcord feature instantly releases the system. One full turn gives you 4cm of micro-adjustment. Best inside fit and shape with 5 shell sizes to guarantee perfect fit.

Covert Ear Cover System:   Quickly and easily remove your ear covers without messing with the fit system. Perfect for hot spring days when you have quick weather changes.

X-Static XT, Wool Blend:   Made with 99% pure silver, X-Static® enhances products with a permanent anti-oder and anitmicrobal performance. It naturally inhibits the growth of bacteria in apparel and textiles, keeping odors in check and gear smelling fresher. X-Static® also has natural temperature regulating properties to keep you performing at your best. 

Audio ready:   Drop in your audio for seamless tunes while cruising the hill. Most earbud style audio systems will fit underneath our Covert ear covers.

SNAP Fidlock Magnetic Buckle System:   One hand operation with automatic closure even with gloves on. Way better then regular buckles.
