The idea behind Bern Helmets is simple, ski and snowboard helmets that look and fit better than any other on the market, that work for a variety of sports, all year round. Bern Unlimited was founded in July 2004 by Dennis Leedom an avid skier, biker, snowboarder, and developing park skater who had taken quite a few tumbles over the years. As a result, he came to realize the value of head protection and made it his mission to increase its awareness and usage. Bern Helmets are available as traditional helmets, with all the relevant safety standard certification and also HardHats. Bern HardHats with their patented Brock multiple-impact soft foam are a new option and one of the first new technologies in action sport head protection in more than 20 years. Bern Helmets and HardHats feature interchangeable warm and cold weather liners making them hugely versatile, meaning one Bern Helmet for all season wear, for all action sports.
