This lightweight foam climbing helmet sits nice and close to your head. It differs from hard shell designs that depend on the material's rigidity and distance from the skull to provide protection. A micro-adjustable cradle at the back provides a fine-tuned fit with optimum security, and you can do up the magnetic chinstrap buckle with one hand.

- Lots of ventilation for warm weather climbing.

- Good ventilation keeps your head nicely cool through heat waves.
- Headlamp clips.
- 2 sizes with adjustment systems to fit heads of all shapes.
Microshell helmets are made of a thin polymer sheet over a foam liner; Hardshell helmets have a hard polymer outer shell and a foam liner; when the liner is being bonded to the outer shell during the manufacturing process, it is Molded in the shell.

Most helmets are tested and certified for a specific sport. Some helmets are approved for multi-sports, but only after passing the safety tests for both sports (i.e., snowsports and cycling).
Cetification is established by a variety of governing bodies who set impact standards. Most helmets are certified or approved for a specific sport, except in the case of multi-sport helmets (i.e., a snowsports helmet might also be approved for cycling if it meets the cycling safety standards).
