Salomon Prophet helmet – durable hybrid construction, Custom Air fit

Developed in collaboration with Salomon’s international team of freeski athletes, the Prophet embodies the constantly evolving attitudes of passionate mountain people. As team rider Victor Galuchot says, “I am not a freerider and I am not a freestyler. I refuse to be limited by a category. It’s the mountains that define my experience. I am a skier.” Prophet is a pure freeski helmet for skiers like Victor who demand the best technical gear, totally adapted to their kind of skiing.

Prophet benefits from Salomon’s Thermo Control System (TCS). First introduced in the Alium helmet, TCS provides great ventilation control for any kind of weather or level of exer­tion, and a freeski grid prevents snow from entering the vents. Prophet uses a very durable hybrid construction, combining a very strong upper shell with a light, EPS design, resulting in a helmet that is strong enough to stand up to rough treatment on backcountry trips, but light enough that it feels great when you’re out there all day.
