Helmets and Goggles Product Information
The Bern G2 (G for “Genius) is a certified multi-sport all-season helmet with the style, fit and features that have made Bern an acknowledged pacesetter in helmet design and the choice of many international elite athletes.
- The G2 makes use of Bern's innovative Zip Mold® technology, which is a liquid foam injection process that provides a superb weight to strength ratio. This process allows the seamless integration of the outer ABS shell and inner hard foam shell --- resulting in a lightweight, lower profile helmet with the protective specs to meet the ASTM F2040 safety standard for helmets used in non-motorized winter sports and receive certification (CPSC and EN 1078) as a safe bike and skate helmet. It weighs in at a stated 505 g /17.8 oz. Outstanding protection and style in one terrific brain bucket.
- Bern's signature Sink Fit® design allows the helmet to sit more securely, lower and around the head, so you don't feel like a mushroom or look like a space ship has landed on your noggin. A slider on top opens and closes six vents at will and these, together with the four other fixed vents, provide “3D” ventilation.
- A removable, washable liner fastens to permanent “hook” patches, with the liner material itself serving as the “loops” (as in “hook-and-loop” Velcro®-type fasteners). An optional winter liner (included and never used) and warm weather version (available online elsewhere) snap in place and are additionally secured by the same kind of “hook-and-loop” system, with the liner material as the “loops.” The removable, semi-rigid visor fastens to the helmet with three included Phillips head screws. An easily adjustable webbing chin strap closes with a strong Fastex®-type two-part side-release buckle and a removable goggle strap clip add to the G2's high level of comfort and performance.
CONDITION, FIT & SIZING: The G2 has been worn just a handful of times and then stored away in a smoke-free, climate controlled area. Worn only for skiing and always with a beanie underneath, it is clean and looks almost like the day it was first used after being purchased new.
It is gloss white in color and a large --- fitting a stated head size (circumference) range of 57-59 cm/22.4”- 23.2” or roughly a hat size of 7 1/8 - 7 3/8. It strongly suggested that unless you are certain that your head size falls within the recommended range, you measure the circumference around the widest point of your head, over your temples and to the back several times with a soft tape measure. Bern helmets tend to fit somewhat tighter so please keep that in mind. Also consider if you are likely to wear the winter liner and/or other headgear. If, by chance, you've never worn a helmet before, you might also want to try on one or two --- preferably Bern --- at your local sporting goods store.
