Second to protection from the elements and surroundings, snow-sport gear is used to express the individual’s tastes, style and most significantly, personality… and their helmet is no exception to this! This is exactly what drove the design of the KnOt Snow Helmet!
Inspired by the boldness of climbing ropes and the distinctive forms created using the Macrame technique, KnOt uses its fixation method to drive the aesthetics! Traveling through the translucent exterior skin of the helmet is a network of rope, which meet at the fastener position under the user’s chin. It uses this structure to add visual interest to the item of safety equipment, and create a product that stands out!
The ropes weave in and out of the skin, revealing its vibrant color and tactile texture intermittently, adding depth to the design and leading to a helmet that we can’t help but want to own!
