About:
Growing up in north Vancouver then moving to Whistler, I’ve had the fortune of spending my whole life with a mountain in my back yard. In the late 80s and early 90s, before the word ‘industry’ had a place in the snowboarding world, a small group of friends and i headed to the mountain with our boards every day, not realizing our obsession was evolving into a sport. Before I knew it, snowboarding took off and it took me with it, shaping my life in ways I never imagined. I soon found myself entering big air competitions, riding for magazine and video shoots, founding and producing sandbox films and now, designing and developing sandbox helmets.

What I’ve learned from this whirlwind experience is a lesson about change: how quickly it comes and how exciting it is to be caught up in it. I remember when first place in a big air comp went to the guy who landed on his feet. now, kids are doing triple corks off solid ice jumps. we understand the sport is continually progressing, and with it, so are riders’ needs for safety, comfort and style.

As a uniquely rider-owned company developing rider-inspired products, we encourage and embrace the enthusiasm and creativity you bring to the sport everyday. on the chair lift and at the top of the hill, as I hear riders’ feedback and stories about snowboarding, I’m reminded daily that providing cool, tough-as-hell helmets riders actually want to wear is the sandbox mission while i, myself, strive to give back to a sport that has given so much to me.

The Classic Features:
LOW PROFILE – Big bobble-heads belong in happy meals not action sports, so we’ve kept our designs tight with the focus on a low-Profile aesthetic. Shells and liners are engineered together so your helmet is as streamlined as possible but still has all the protection you need.

CUSTOM18 – Pinhead, peahead, peanuthead, conehead. You’ve been called it all, but we agree with your mom; your head isn’t ugly, it’s just special. The custom18 feature embraces your specialness by providing 18 possible fit pad combos: thin and thick in the front, top and back. Arrange them however you need and get comfortable.

GOGGLE FIT FRIENDLY – We’ll worry about the gap between your helmet and your goggles so you can focus on clearing the gap in the park. Sound fair? Sandbox helmets are shaped to fit most goggle styles – but we can do even better than that! Sandbox now offers a line of goggles that are specifically designed to provide a seamless fit with all our helmets. No more gorby gap!

ALL WEATHER – No excuses. Every day is a great day to ride and our all weather features keep it that way. Because you shred in the sun, Snow and rain, our helmets provide removable ear covers and goggle clip to keep you shredding no matter what mother nature is serving up.

MULTI SPORT – We get it, you can’t sit still. If you’re not shredding on the mountain then you’re tearing it up at the skate park or ripping On your bike. Our combined custom18 and all weather features allow you to adjust your helmet to be comfortable for whatever you want to do today.

UNISEX – Just ’cause a girl likes to get flowers from her boyfriend doesn’t mean she wants them on her helmet. We’ve skipped the Flowers and butterflies, designing our helmets with the belief that like skinny jeans and long hair, every style and color can be rocked by dudes and chicks.

SOFT TOUCH – We hate to burst your bubble, but the reason people can’t keep their hands off you isn’t you at all, it’s the helmet. Soft to the touch with a scratch-resistant finish, the soft touch feature feels as good to the fingers as it looks to the eyes and is available on all our matte helmets.

MSRP – $70.00 – $75.00
