- Pret X: PRET X was developed with direct input from professional athletes to create a helmet line that conquers the most demanding conditions on the planet. Places that don’t have lifts or boundaries. Places where product failure isn’t an option. Pret developed this line to provide the ultimate combination of performance, durability and safety. MIPS® and RECCO® help Pret push the envelope for snow sports safety and highest performance. MIPS® to better handle certain impacts and RECCO® for the backcountry. PRET X lives at the limits.
- MIPS®: MIPS sets a new standard in helmet safety. Developed by brain surgeons and scientists to help address injury due to rotational acceleration with the goal to reduce rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head. The quick version - When a 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®: This 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. RECCO® technology is not intended for companion rescue nor is it an alternative to transceiver use in the backcountry. Complementary in function to the transceiver, RECCO® technology is an additional tool that does not interfere with other search methods such as transceiver searches, avalanche dogs, or probe lines. The RECCO® technology facilitates a faster search by professional rescuers and provides skiers and snowboarders with one more chance to be found in time.
- VTT1 Vent Tuning Technology: Pret's highly effective system of vents remove heat and moisture without exposure to the elements. The balance of front intake, top and rear vents controls air throughout the helmet. Vent covers are sewn right into the washable removable liner to completely close the front and top vents. The ultimate solution for simple, highly effective ventilation and lightest possible weight.
- RCS Fit System: Designed by Pret, the Ripcord System (RCS) is the perfect micro-adjustable, compact and ergonomic fit system. Simply pulling up on the adjustment dial and the exclusive Ripcord feature instantly releases the system. One full turn gives you 4 centimeters 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-odor and antimicrobial 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 Pret's Covert ear covers.
- SNAP Fidlock Magnetic Buckle System: One hand operation with automatic closure even with gloves on. Way better then regular buckles.
- Certifications: ATSM F2040 and CE EN1077
