Why we chose the Scott Blend Plus: Innovative, comfortable, streamlined
Size: S, M, L
Winner of the coveted 2022 ISPO Award, the Scott Blend Plus helmet is essentially Scott’s take on an integrated helmet and visor system. Now integrated goggle systems are definitely an acquired taste, but we love the way that Scott has approached this style and that’s why we’ve decided to include it in this year’s 100.

So what’s it all about then? Well, as you can see from the photos, the helmet features a visor (kind of) attached to it. We say ‘kind of’ as, in the case of the Blend Plus Helmet, the visor is actually separate from the helmet. This is different to many other integrated systems that feature a fixed point for the visor to rotate from.
This freedom has been achieved through the use of neat magnets that are set into both the helmet and visor. The visor can be easily removed and placed on the front of the helmet, and is held in place with these magnets. A bit of cord, by the way, ensures the visor will never go missing if it accidentally falls off the helmet.
