Sandbox Helmets - When protection meets style
And the word "simplicity" certainly does not mean lower quality, it's actually the opposite. Sandbox helmets are among the best on the market as we speak.

On one hand, the Classic model, Sandbox very first style and first snowboard helmet to feature a visor. On the other hand, the Legend model. A style that's a bit more sober, but just as efficient and stylish as the Classic. Both styles include a bunch of different color options and functionalities to cover all types of terrain, but the goal here is for your helmet choice to be easy. With Sandbox, there's only one thing you'll need to decide: Are you a Legend or Classic type of person?!
A BIT OF HISTORY
Sandbox was started in 2007 by professional snowboarder Kevin Sansalone when his local mountain Whistler/Blackcomb declared that helmets were becoming mandatory in the snowpark. In 2007, wearing a helmet was not the norm and to respect the rules while considering snowboarders, who were concerned about their image, Kevin created Sandbox and developed the Classic helmet, the first helmet with a visor that did not compromise style for function and vice versa.
What started out as a product purely designed for pros to ride the park in style has grown into the world's most sought-after and recognizable brand of snowboard helmets in the world. Sandbox helmets combine protection and style and their aesthetics elevate the concept of head protection by making people realize a helmet is a totally essential accessory and that with the right model, you won't loose an ounce of style all while protecting your most precious asset: Your head.
