The High-Performance Carbon-Fiber materials used in the construction of the helmet shell make for an exceptional technological upgrade to the typical snowmobiling helmet, and are a cut above the rest of the cheaper composite made helmets.

The optional Four-Ride-Mode versatility that is complete with each and every 2018 KLIM Krios Snowmobiling Helmet is another technological aspect that should excite every snowmobiling enthusiast out there today. Few other snowmobiling helmets offer this level of incredible ride versatility, with many cheaper competitors only offering a one-dimensional ride modality that cannot be altered easily. The only technological category where the 2018 KLIM Krios Snowmobiling Helmet is lacking a bit is in terms of heating technologies, which are not really integrated into this particular helmet design.

PERFORMANCE 4/5

With sheer performance in mind, the 2018 KLIM Krios Snowmobiling Helmet dominates much of the competition out there on the market this year. The ventilation system on this helmet is one of the best performing aspects of the helmet in general, since the ventilation porting was completely re-designed by the engineers at KLIM to ensure the most intelligent venting dynamics possible.

WEIGHT 4/5

The overall weight of the 2018 KLIM Krios Snowmobiling Helmet is another strong selling point of the helmet in general, since the light five pound weight of the unit is perfect for high performance. This is because the lighter weight allows for faster and more reflexive head movements, and prevents the kind of head lag that you can experience with much heavier and bulkier snowmobiling helmets. Riders who love a lightweight helmet will be hard pressed to find a better option than the 2018 KLIM Krios Snowmobiling Helmet, since at five pounds this helmet is extremely light, relatively speaking.

PRICE 3/5

Retailing around $550.00, the 2018 KLIM Krios Snowmobiling Helmet is one of the more expensive helmet options on the market this year. It isn’t the most expensive helmet, but it isn’t far away from that distinction either.
