Women's Helmets + Protection
Stay safe with women’s protective equipment
Skiing and snowboarding are brilliant, whether you’re making your first turns or you’ve been in the game for years, but they just wouldn’t be what they are if there wasn’t an element of risk involved. And that risk is always there, if you’re heading out for your first block of lessons or you’re heading 14ft out the top of the half pipe, you’re always better off to be well protected than to risk an injury or worse.
The great thing is, we’ve got you covered. There are plenty of clever protective products in store to help keep you healthy if you have a mishap.
At Freeze, we care about your safety. We want you to keep doing the sports you love for your whole lives. That’s why we’ve selected this awesome range of helmets and other women’s protective equipment with plenty of unisex options – whatever your style, budget or ability level, you can select from a massive stock of impact protection and supports. You’ll find helmets, back protectors, wrist guards, knee pads and padded shorts, all with free UK delivery and a Price Match guarantee.
So, what do you need?
First things first, you’ll need a helmet. Okay, so some of the cool kids will say that you don’t need a helmet, but there are plenty of people out there with traumatic brain injuries or worse, who we’re sure would tell you otherwise. It’s not even a question – you absolutely need to wear a helmet.
Go for something that’s good quality, at the right size, with a comfortable fit. Every helmet we stock has been certified in the EU or US to show that it meets strict safety standards, so you can be sure that it’ll perform when you need it to.
Back injuries can happen too, particularly if you’re venturing into the terrain park, out into the backcountry or into the streets, so a good back protector can be a great choice. They’re very effective at shielding you from blunt impacts like you might get from falling onto your back on rocks or rails, as well as protecting you from crushing and bending injuries like you could suffer from falling hard on your ass, ragdolling down a landing, or being swept away in an avalanche.
If you’ve spent any time in the park, on rails or icy landings, you’ll know how your hips and tailbone can take a battering. These sorts of injuries can happen anywhere that there’s ice or hard-pack snow too, so picking up a good pair of impact shorts it’s a really wise move. Don’t underestimate the humble bruised tailbone – it’s a killer.
If you’re learning to snowboard, then you’re going to fall on your ass a lot – another reason to pick up some padded shorts. Likewise, you’re going to be kneeling and falling onto your knees a lot, so a pair of comfortable low profile knee pads can be just the thing.
Good quality wrist guards that are the right length have been shown to significantly reduce the chance of you breaking your wrists. They can make a real difference, particularly if you’ve got any history of weakness or injury in your wrists.
