The Talus ColdAvenger high performance mask is an example of innovation for function and fashion. More than just a ski mask, the ColdAvenger has multiple athletic and industrial uses as a cold weather face protection mask that allows you to breathe freely while keeping your face warm and dry. This ultra warm balaclava is specifically engineered for cold weather action sports. It warms your skin and protects your airway while allowing totally free breathing.
One Size fits All
Made with Polartec Wind Pro, an extremely breathable fleece that is four times more wind resistant than classic fleece
Polartec calls Wind Pro the new "super fleece" because of its ability to perform in such diverse conditions and uses from outer wear to an insulating base layer
The ColdAvenger Expedition Balaclava design protects entire head from cold weather, sun and wind with an integrated fully removable ColdAvenger ventilator
While the ventilator is not designed to be used without the hood, the hood can be used without the ventilator
Soft medical grade and non-toxic polyurethane ventilator provides a comfortable seal while retaining its inherent microbial resistance
The ColdAvenger ventilation face piece is made of medical grade plastic selected for human safety, bio-compatability, flexibility, inherent microbial resistance, and endurance (Read Technical Information). The soft shell stretch fabric is wind proof and water resistant with an inner fleece lining for a comfortable fit.
Form-fitting design protects face, neck, ears and airway from cold weather
ColdAvenger ventilator allows you to breathe freely during outdoor activities while managing exhaled moisture off the facial skin
Fleece wicks away moisture to keep your face dry
Humidifies dry and cold inhaled air to protect and improve airway health in the cold
Keeps temperatures inside 40F to 60F higher than outside (difference relative to movement)
Designed to fit with goggles and helmets
Helps prevent the fogging of goggles
Adjustable, removable interior valve controls up to 60% of air intake
The Talus ColdAvenger is designed for a variety of winter outdoor activities where protection from cold is essential. Researched and developed in Northern Rocky Mountain winters and tested in snow and freezing weather, ColdAvenger keeps your face warm and dry while helping humidify inhaled air and allowing you to breathe freely. ColdAvenger has been used with comfort at -20F. It is the ultimate ski mask for winter face protection during outdoor activities. Include it in your essential ski and snowboard gear. Ski, snowboard, snowmobile, heli-ski, hunt, cycle, motorcycle, or work in comfort outdoors with the Talus ColdAvenger.
How Does ColdAvenger Work?
ColdAvenger mixes inhaled cold air with exhaled warm air to achieve a dynamic balance of warmth while keeping the face dry. Inside mask temperatures are 40 F to 60 F higher than outside, depending on activity. The patent-pending ventilation design allows for easy breathing during exertion, a critical feature for high endurance outdoor activities. Moisture from exhaled air binds to the plastic piece, keeping the face dry.
ColdAvenger Performance Features & Benefits:
Cold weather protection of the face and airways not only contributes to comfort, but helps prevent cold-induced adverse health effects. Prolonged cold air exposure is a form of chronic trauma to the airway as demonstrated by research involving athletes participating in winter activities (Read Scientific Research). Normally, inhaled air is warmed to body temperatures and humidified at the same time by the moisture and warmth contained in the nose and upper airways. An unprotected face allows cold air to interfere with this warming and humidification process. ColdAvenger helps keep the temperature of the air around your face 40 F to 60F higher than outside and helps to humidify inhaled air.
