The integrated visor helmets that have been popular on piste abroad have made their way to the slopes of the USA. Once considered an accessory for the more recreational skier, brands like POC, Smith, and Oakley have recently introduced all-in-one goggle helmets for the more aggressive, mountain charging skier. Offering the convenience of eye and head protection in one stylish package, they are great for those who wear glasses too.

The Levator has an extended visor with a field of view larger than any POC goggle and an easy swap lens-changing system. Safety features include Mips Evolve® for extra rotational impact protection, multi-impact protection zones in areas most likely to be hit in a fall, and a RECCO® Avalanche rescue reflector.

The Survey is lined for comfort with adjustable vents and an adjustable dial that fine tunes fit. Read More
