NEW HELIUM 30 ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT GEAR FROM SKI-DOO GIVES MOUNTAIN RIDERS WHAT THEY WANT
BRP’s Ski-Doo snowmobiles is expanding and renewing its Helium 30 mountain outerwear with new colors and more options in both men’s and women’s styles for 2018.
Helium 30 gear was first introduced to provide a super lightweight outer shell, with all the benefits of a Sympatex membrane, for riders that wanted the least restriction possible. It’s become a favourite of most Ski-Doo Backcountry Experts who value that ease of mobility, yet absolutely need the protection and performance of a waterproof, windproof and breathable shell.
The jackets and pants are constructed of a Sympatex 2-ply Laminated Polyester with all seams and logos sealed for maximum protection against water and wind intrusion, while allowing perspiration to evaporate through the membrane. Design details on jackets include water resistant zippers, a removable hood, powder skirt and venting under the arms and on the biceps.
Pants were designed with feedback from hard-core mountain riders featuring high panels front and back for additional protection against snow and wind intrusion along with must haves like properly shaped, reinforced knee and shin pads, reinforcement on the inner legs for abrasion protection, storm gaiters that connect to boot laces and stretch fabric in the waist for ease of movement.
All Sympatex gear features a lifetime warranty.
Men’s jackets are available in four colors, while pants are available in Charcoal Gray or Black and sizes for both jackets and pants range from Extra Small to 3XL and tall versions also. Women’s jackets and pants are one color available in Extra Small through 3XL.
Pricing is from $369.99 – $399.99 USD/$479.99 – $519.99 CAD
NEW HELIUM PRO JACKET FROM SKI-DOO SNOWMOBILES FEATURES WHAT’S NEXT IN OUTERWEAR
BRP’s Ski-Doo snowmobiles is introducing the new Helium Pro Jacket to bring the next level of advanced outerwear to active crossover and cross-country riders both on and off trail. The jacket combines features and technology from hyperactive mountain wear and extreme cold weather riding gear to form a product that will answer these riders’ needs.
Pricing is $419.99 USD/524.99 CAD
The shell of the Helium Pro Jacket was developed with lessons learned in the mountains; it features a tough, high-tech Cordura material with a Sympatex membrane to provide high performance breathability and the best water and wind resistance. Riders will appreciate the toughness in tight tree riding and the ability stay warm and dry even in wet conditions as the membrane protects against outside elements while allowing perspiration to evaporate. All Sympatex gear features a lifetime warranty also.
Balance in warmth is key to Helium Enduro gear design. Insulation in the Helium Pro is high performance Primaloft Black in a lighter amount than typical insulated jackets so riders remain comfortable in active riding – in cold conditions.
