Dirtbag Dreams: Hendrix ProView
A fine way to protect your noggin’ without your goggles foggin’. The Bern Hendrix helmet gets an A in my book.
Imagine Monday - Friday 9AM - 4PM your only objective for the day is to eat, sleep and ride with the new Bern Hendrix helmet. This is my lifestyle and I invite you to explore it through this blog post. In winter, my focus shifts heavily to snowboard fun when I’m not helping kiddos discover themselves in the backcountry at OpenSky Wilderness Therapy, or teaching adults how to shred on a snowboard at Purgatory in Durango, CO.
This winter is off to a great start compared to last year’s very dry Colorado season. I’ve already ridden in three nice pow days and have lapped the park with a sense of bravery I didn’t have last year. What about the Bern Hendrix helmet though, right?
First day of the season I tried to do a tail butter with a flat 360 spin, caught my heel edge and ate $*@!, but played it off into a somersault. Just needed a moment to shake off the shock and embarrassment and was back at it. Another time, lapping the park, my run included: hitting the small jump to the C-box to the flat box. I hit them all my first couple tries and on my last try I cut too late to get on the flatbox and ate $*@!. I managed to bang my leg on the edge of the box and tumbled head first into the neighboring rail - BOINK! My head is okay, my leg is still scabbing over. Through both crashes the MIPS was clearly working because I have yet to get a headache and I can still count to 10 (forward and backwards).
I ordered a large because I like to ride with a beanie for extra warmth and my dreads add another inch around my head. THIS HELMET IS A PERFECT FIT. I’ve worn larges that felt like a bucket and mediums that are too tight. The Bern Hendrix helmet is a perfect inbetween M/L where I can fit dreads, beanie and goggles without walking around like Squidward Tentacles. It also fits well with just dreads underneath and goggles on the outside once I turned the compass dial to a comfortable fit. The Hendrix model is also very comfortable and lightweight (yet warm) with the ThinShell lining.
I find Bern helmets to be steezy as hell with their signature brim. More than just style, the signature brim helps ward off snow from your goggle vents - keeping the foggle away so we can play all day!
The Final Word
Equipped with MIPS technology that reduces rotational motion to the brain during impact, the Hendrix helmet has got your back. If you’re looking to ride with style and ease, the Bern Hendrix helmet is here to please.
