“Stay connected and protected. Introducing the Snowtide Ski and Snowboard Helmet. An intelligent all-in-one solution offering safety, style, and advanced audio and communications.”
Can’t find a single video demonstrating this “Smart-Helmet” capabilities and and do not endorse it in any way but do appreciate some of the features if only in theory. The Swagtron Snowtide ($149.99) has impact sensors that activate in the event of a crash and send text/email alerts to your emergency contacts with your location.
- Integrated Audio and Comms
Built-in Bluetooth® system allows you to ski or ride to your own soundtrack and take hands-free calls. Download the app for advanced two-way group communications with one-button Push to Talk and unlimited range*.
- S.O.S. Alert System
Snowtide knows when to call for help. Smart impact sensors send text and email alerts to your emergency contact(s) with your location when a crash activates the S.O.S. system.
- Intuitive Touch Controls
Easy one-touch controls allow you to use PTT (push to talk), adjust volume, change tracks and power on/off while wearing gloves.
- On-the-Fly Climate Control
Fifteen total vents help regulate temperature while you ride. Slide-to-open top vents let you blow off some steam or keep the elements at bay. Anti-fog induction channels keep goggles clear in any conditions.
- Dial in the Perfect Fit
Dial adjust retention system and adjustable chin strap make finding a snug, secure fit easy. Removable, washable winter liner provides comfort and warmth.
- Multi-Layer Protection
Impact-absorbing in-mold EPS wrapped in a durable ABS outer shell for heavyweight protection in a lightweight design. EN and ASTM certified.
“One of the only ski and snowboard helmets on the market to offer a full suite of smart connectivity, the Snowtide integrates class-leading safety and features with immersive sound and advanced two-way communications.
Quickly connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth to answer calls or find the perfect song for the perfect run. Download the Snowtide iOS/Android app to unlock advanced features including real-time stats like distance, duration, vertical, speed, altitude and slope angle.Whether it’s trying to meet up in the lift line or knowing when it’s safe to drop that backcountry booter, communication is key. The Snowtide’s two-way group “walkie-talkie” feature with one-button Push to Talk (PTT) and unlimited range* makes hand-held radios obsolete.
We all fall, and if you go down hard, the Snowtide’s advanced S.O.S alert system can call for backup. Built-in impact sensors will sound the helmet’s personal alarm letting you know it’s been activated. All good? Clear it. But if you need help, after 60 seconds the Snowtide will automatically send text and/or email alerts with your location to the emergency contact(s) you’ve preset in the app.
And if you lose track of your Snowtide, a loss prevention system will sound an alarm on both the app and the helmet if they are separated by 50 feet.
Just because we went above and beyond making the Snowtide smarter than the average helmet doesn’t mean we forgot the basics. Sliding vents provide breathability on warm days or when you’re bootpacking bonus lines. Riding in the white room? Close them on-the-fly for insulation from the elements. Goggle guides and a strap lock keep things tidy, and front induction channels ensure you can navigate with fog-free clarity.
In-mold construction combines an EPS impact layer with a durable ABS outer shell for multi-layer protection. A dial-fit system and adjustable, padded chin strap tie things together. And it’s all wrapped into a sleek, aerodynamic design that’s surprisingly light for all the tech we’ve packed in.
Whether you’re lapping the park to your own personal soundtrack, scoping backcountry lines with your crew or taking a call on the lift, stay protected and connected with the Snowtide.”
