Ski-Doo Helium Pro Jacket

Ski-Doo Helium Pro Jacket Features What’s Next In Outerwear

Ski-Doo’s new Helium Pro Jacket brings the next level of advanced outerwear to active crossover and cross-country riders—both on and off trail. Combining features and technology from hyperactive mountain wear with extreme cold weather riding gear, this jacket is a product that will answer these riders’ needs.

Its contemporary styling is aggressive but tasteful, with key features like front and bicep venting that is accessible even when wearing a backpack back. The thoughtful design provides ultimate functionality for demanding riders.

The shell features a tough, high-tech Cordura material with a Sympatex membrane to provide high performance breathability and exceptional water and wind resistance. Riders will appreciate how the jacket keeps them warm and dry even in wet conditions as the membrane protects against outside elements while allowing perspiration to evaporate. All Sympatex gear features a lifetime warranty.

Balance in warmth is key to Helium Enduro gear design. Insulation in the Helium Pro is high performance Primaloft Black in a lighter amount than typical insulated jackets so riders remain comfortable in active riding – in cold conditions. Primaloft Black works with the Sympatex membrane to facilitate better breathability also.

Design features include:

  • Highly windproof, waterproof and breathable membrane
  • 100% of seams and logos are sealed
  • Water-resistant zippers
  • Easy to reach vents
  • Powder skirt
  • Hem, collar and wrist adjustments
  • Inner microfleece cuffs
  • Silicone backpack grip at shoulders
  • Reflective highlights on back and sleeves
  • Cordura reinforcement in key areas

There also are matching Helium Enduro Highpants available in XS-3XL.
