New Snow Helmets

An often overlooked piece of gear when it comes to snow season is one of the most important, the helmet, unless of course you don’t care to protect your head. Arctiva and our sister company, Z1R offer a variety of options for you to cover your melon.

First up is Arctiva’s first ever helmet, the open face Rise helmet. Immediately you notice the color and the striking graphics that will not only make sure you are seen on the trail for safety purposes but also making fellow riders envious. The Arctiva Rise helmet is constructed of a ABS/Polycarbonate shell that meets DOT standards and is ECE 22.05 approved. The removable vent plugs allow for optimal venting with intake/exhaust ports so you can adjust adjust to conditions as does the removable breath box. The Arctiva Rise is designed for comfort with the inclusion of multi-density padding and nylex comfort liner as well as removable and washable cheek pads that give you a custom fit. The Arctiva Rise doesn’t just look and feel great it includes Dual-density EPS removable liner provides a more progressive impact absorption to add to the safety of the helmet. Couple the Arctiva Rise helmet with the Arctiva Comp 2 Vert or Comp 2 Rev Goggles to get everything you need above the neck. The Arctiva Rise Helmet is available at your local Parts Unlimited dealer for $99.95, yes that is the correct price.


If a full faced helmet is more your style Z1R has a helmet for you, the Strike Ops Snow. This helmet is constructed of an injection molded polycarbonate shell in gloss and flat black and includes high volume intake and exhaust vents. The full removable, polyester moisture wicking cheekpads add to the comfort of the Z1R Strike Ops Snow helmet. The included chin vent improves interior airflow and helps reduce shield fogging. If that isn’t enough anti-fogging for your taste, there is a version of the helmet that includes a double lens, anti-fog electric shield. As with the Arctiva Rise helmet, the Strike Ops Snow helmet is DOT and ECE 22.05 approved. The Z1R Strike Ops Snow helmet is available from your local Parts Unlimited dealer for $129.95 and only $169.95 for the version with the electric shield.


Our last helmet that we are showing today is the Z1R Solaris Modular that comes in flat black and gloss black and is constructed of an advanced ABS/Polycarbonate shell that meets DOT standards. The double-lens, anti-fog shield features a no-tool quick release mechanism. Removable and washable cheekpads, multi-density padding and nylex liner all add to the comfort of this helmet. Like the Strike Ops Snow helmet, the Solaris Modular has a version that includes an electric shield. Can you believe you can find the Z1R Solaris Modular Snow helmet at your local Parts Unlimited Dealer for only $179.95, $20 more for the electric shield version.
