Bern’s Winter Macon 2.0 helmet

One of Bern's classic designs is lighter, sleeker and even safer

Bern’s Winter Macon 2.0 helmet

Bern Winter Macon 2.0 helmet If you enjoy skating and snowsports and biking then here’s a helmet that you can wear for all three activities.

Bern has updated its classic Macon helmet into this, the Winter Macon 2.0. This Winter version is primarily for skiing/boarding, but you can swap the winter liner out with a summer pad kit (included) and remove the ear pads when you want to use the helmet in warmer conditions.

A standard Macon 2.0 is also available. Both come in a large number of colour options.

The main improvement is the addition of MIPS technology. MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) and yellow-coloured plastic layer that allows a slight movement of 10mm to 15mm. If you hit your head, this reduces the amount of rotational motion being transferred to the brain during an impact.

There’s an adjustable strap and an elastic ‘EZ-Fit’ which auto-adjusts every time you put it on, plus 12 vents. The liner can be removed to wash too.
