This Gear Is A Staff Favorite:

Powder7 Staff Pick Mia
By: Mia
I love the Cynic X because it's lightweight, low profile, and fits with almost any goggle on the market (no gaper gap here). It has plenty of vents in the front which prevents my goggles from fogging, plus the dial fit system in the back makes it super easy to adjust. I wear a size small which I find is on point with the other brands I have like Smith, and POC.

Our Take:

If you want to ride like the pros you have to train like them, but if you want to look like the pros all you have to do is buy the Cynic X helmet from Pret. Developed with a focus on performance and safety, the Cynic X features MIPS in a lightweight, low profile design. Ultra-light weight ACT combines In Mold multi shell construction with overlapping PC shells and injection vent rings for durability and protection. Plus, the Level 1 Venting system links intake and exhaust vents that regulate heat and moisture in all conditions. The easy to use Fidlock Magnetic buckle on the strap makes for easy transitions even with gloves on, and a RCS dial system in the back lets you find the perfect fit. Safe, lightweight, and stylish in a package that won't break the bank, the Cynic X is a go to for smart skiers everywhere.

Pret Cynic X FAQ:

Q: Is the sizing on the Pret helmets similar to the Smith helmets? Or how do I know what size to get? From Dave - March 2022

A: The sizing is the exact same for the small and medium, but starts to switch up a little bit once you get into the large and extra large sizes. I will attach links to both size guides so you can do a little compare and contrast. Additionally, most of the helmet models have micro adjustments as well. ,
