Technology

360-k2dialed-fit-system
An evolution of the K2dialed Fit System™, the new 360 K2dialed Fit System™ delivers unparalleled customization. A web design that is integrated into the textile liner provides maximum comfort and a secure fit. Thanks to more evenly distributed pressure, the all-new 360 K2dialed Fit System™ eliminates unwanted pressure points regardless of your head shape.
Level-3-baseline-audio
The K2 Level 3 Baseline Audio system seamlessly connects you with your cell phone or media player. The audio system comes pre-installed in Baseline Audio Earpads. The speaker housing creates a minimal, low-profile stowage so you won’t notice the speakers unless the music is playing. If you would rather ride without the speakers installed, they can be easily removed from the earpads. With a detachable cord and an all-new on-cord audio controller for initiating on-the-go pause/play and answer/hang-up functions, your media device is literally at your fingertips.
Hybrid
This unique construction features the best of both In-Mold and Hard-Shell constructions. The primary In-Mold construction makes the helmet incredibly light, while the secondary Hard-Shell upper allows for more advanced Active Matrix Venting™ and increased durability.
Active-matrix-venting
Active Matrix Venting allows you to regulate the airflow of the helmet vent system with the touch of your finger. Controlling large vents with minimal effort results in superior style and function that can be adjusted on the fly. Climate control with the flip of a switch.
Full-wrap-liner
This full-coverage, washable liner snugly cradles your head, creating the unmatched fit of a K2 helmet. The liner features a crown mesh that wicks moisture and breathes to prevent overheating. The Full-Wrap Liner System is seamlessly integrated with both our standard and 360 K2dialed™ Fit Systems and K2 Baseline Audio, creating the ultimate user experience. There are no gaps, which means a better fit and improved comfort.

      Comments about K2 Skis Virtue:

      I've never really liked wearing a helmet until I got the K2 Virtue! I found myself wearing it everytime I skied - not just when I raced! It was easy to set the fit with the adjustable wheel. I was able to hook my phone to the speaker so not to miss a call from the kids! I believe wearing this helmet this year helped me stay out longer because it added lots of warmth!

          I tried my friend's helmet. It fits great! K2 lists lots of comfort and perk specs. What about the protective technology used in this helmet? I have friends with head injuries. K2 please tell me why this helmet will protect me over other helmets and the technology that you are using to do so!

            Perhaps I have an oddly-shaped head, but finding a comfortable helmet can be hard for me. This one is super-comfortable, and has great shape! Not the lowest-profile helmet on the market, but good looking, easily adjustable, and technology compatible. Good stuff.

                Comments about K2 Skis Virtue:

                The virtue is a lightweight low profile helmet, that provides great peripheral vision that I have found other helmets to lack. My goggles fit perfect with no gaps. The adjustable dial in the back allows you to adjust the fit of the helmet, it does seem to fit a little larger than previous K2 medium size helmets so be aware of the sizing, but the adjustable dial allows you to fit the helmet to you head and adjust when needed. I love the sound system which comes with a volume control cord so you can turn it up while skiing or turn it down when engaging in conversation without touch any of your devices...highly recomended

                  As a ski instructor, I encourage everyone to wear a helmet. And as a ski instructor, I'm in it all day so comfort and weight are very important. The Virtue is exceptionally lightweight - you hardly notice you're wearing a helmet. It has a nice fit but snug to do its job.

                  Comments about K2 Skis Virtue:

                  I wear this helmet every day I am on snow. It fits my head perfectly. Personally, I don't ski with earphones, so I took them out. They are easily removable.
                  As a ski instructor I got this helmet from K2. But I can say that this one fits my head and the purpose of protecting my noggin. ;o)
