  • INFO
  • Last season the innovative 509 Altitude helmet took the snowmobile industry by storm. Described as a sleek yet aggressive helmet, it is packed with industry-leading features. Despite the rave reviews and success of this helmet, we went back to the drawing board and asked, “How can we improve?” The result….CARBON FIBER! You heard correctly. All-new for 2016 is the full Carbon Fiber Altitude helmet – the same fit and function you’ve come to expect, now crafted from one of the strongest materials on the planet. Strength aside, the Carbon Fiber Altitude is noticeably lighter than its thermoplastic counterpart. If you are looking for the very best snowmobile helmet, look no further than the All new 2016 509 Carbon Fiber Altitude helmet.

    The Altitude helmet meets or exceeds DOT & ECE 2205 safety certification
    standards. It features an innovative dual density, interlocking EPS foam liner
    that provides top crash protection in the event of an accident. The front chin
    area of the helmet is protected by a specially designed expanded polyurethane
    chin insert that provides front impact protection. The outer shell is made of
    specially designed carbon fiber for maximum shell strength with minimal weight.
    In addition to its safety accolades, performance was a key focus during the
    development process. Innovative aerodynamic channels run across the entire
    contour of the helmet. These channels are integrated directly into shell and direct
    adequate air flow into the specially designed vent scoops. The Altitude helmet
    features 6 integrated vent scoops that provide necessary ventilation to keep you
    comfortable when riding. Overall, the Altitude features 8 intake/exhaust vent ports.
    And for those cold days, snap in the included cold weather breath box. The unique
    aerodynamic visor features a locking-top center mount that holds the visor in place and
    prevents unwanted visor movement.
    The Altitude was designed with two key fit metrics in mind: Rider fit & Goggle fit. First, we
    created a custom interior EPS matched with a premium removable liner. The Carbon Fiber
    Altitude is available in 8 sizes from XS to 4XL (Thermoplastic Altitude available in 11 sizes
    from Youth small to Adult 4XL). These 8 sizes are carefully designed across 3 outer shell
    molds - our competitors only use 2. This provides a precision fit, while minimizing overall
    helmet circumference. The neck brace ready, contoured shell base provides a comfortable,
    yet snug feel when putting the helmet on. When the helmet is fully in place it provides an
    unmatched comfort fit that prevents unwanted helmet movement. The eyeport of the Altitude
    helmet was carefully crafted to fit our 509 Sinister X5 & Aviator goggles perfectly, further improving
    our world famous “509 helmet & goggle combo” fit. The Altitude helmet & 509 brand goggles are
    two product designed to fit and perform at the highest level when used in combination. And because
    fit is only as good as the overall weight, the Carbon Fiber Altitude weighs in under 1100g while the
    Thermoplastic Altitude starts at a class leading 1260g.
    Finally, the always important STYLE FACTOR. We wanted this helmet to not only perform at the highest
    level, but to look good doing it. The shell features sleek, yet aggressive lines that provide an innovative
    and unmatched look. Everything - from the integrated front mouth vent, to the innovative ventilation
    channels, to the sweeping upward-kicked visor - provides a flowing and seamless transition. Last, but
    definitely not least, we know you want to show off your riding talent while wearing the Altitude helmet.
    That’s why each Altitude comes standard with an innovative GoPro® camera mount that mounts securely
    in seconds to the top visor mount.
