Salomon one of the world’s first to release smart ski helmets for kids

Oct 18, 2022

The French outdoor brand Salomon is releasing a range of smart ski helmets for kids as a part of their FW 22/23 equipment launch. By integrating the safety technology twICEme®, smart helmets can provide info such as parent phone numbers, exact location and other relevant information needed if something were to happen. In this way, the collaboration between Salomon and twICEme can help set co-riders and loved ones at ease - and is a clear mark where the equipment industry is headed.

twICEme is an integrated technology that allows users to store personal safety information in their gear. Data such as phone numbers to loved ones, coordinates, medical conditions, and more can all be uploaded to the helmet via the twICEme app, where the user chooses how much or how little info he or she wants to share. If something were to happen, medical and rescue professionals can access their profile, even without the app, by simply tapping their smartphone to the twICEme symbol displayed on the equipment. Access to this safety information will give first responders a clear, efficient way to make decisions in the case of an emergency where time is often most critical, but it can also be useful if a child is to be lost on the slopes.

Salomon’s tradition of producing high-performing outdoor gear and head protection worn by enthusiasts all around the globe is brought to an apex with their decision to step into the tech domain. Salomon is now launching not one, not two, but three (!) different models of kids helmets integrated with twICEme®. By making their helmets smart, they are joining other world-leading brands such as Oakley, POC, and Julbo in the mission of building a global standard of safety and their aim to create the most advanced protection out there.

“Being able to integrate smart safety in our helmets feels like a big step forward. twICEme’s intuitive technology brings protection to a new level. Combining Salomon’s best patented safety technologies with easy access to essential information thanks to the twICEme app, parents can fully enjoy their family ski days.” - Benjamin Raffort, Product Line Manager at Salomon.

“We are proud and excited for this initiative from the highly recognized brand Salomon as it increases reach and visibility which helps build twICEme as the global symbol for smart safety. Salomon will join POC in the children’s segment which can help put worried parents at ease knowing that essential information about their loved one can be made available by the tap of a smartphone. “ says Christian Connolly, CEO of Twiceme Technology.
