The Anon Nelson Helmet is not a bad helmet and we don’t have any issues recommending it.
It’s got goggle vent’s, slide vents on the top where most of the heat goes, isn’t too egg heady and phallus. There is also a little mini visor over the goggles that allows you to keep snow from falling onto the vents which is a good thing. It’s not really about blocking sun but more for just eliminating snow falling on the vents and fogging up goggles. You know the venting system isn’t the best out there but it for sure works and so does the little visor. The helmet integrates perfectly with Anon goggles which is expected but it’s got a pretty standard cut that allows other goggle manufacturers to fit as well.
We aren’t really sure on the impact protection from helmet to helmet because that’s just at a level that isn’t really easily comparable for us but let’s put it this way. There is never a case that not wearing a helmet is better than wearing one. So if this design appeals to you then go for it. It’s checked off all the boxes that most people expect in a mid to high end helmet like this.
