Show Description

The Elios design has proved popular with climbers, canyoneers, and cavers. It has a low-profile shape and a range of adjustments that allow it to sit comfortably on most people's heads. This model has sliding ventilation slots that can be opened in the heat and shut down in the cold. The shell combines hard plastic and light, dense foam to absorb impact either from contact with the rock or from falling stones and ice chunks.

  • Injection moulded ABS shell is lightweight and durable.
  • Expanded polystyrene liner absorbs impacts.
  • Comfort foam is quilted and lined with absorbent fabric that's washable.
  • Precise headband adjustment with two push-buttons and Y-shaped webbing straps that can be adjusted around your ears.
  • Headband folds into the shell for storage and transport.
  • Sliding ventilation slots adapt to weather conditions.
  • Headlamp attachment uses 4 sensibly placed clips.
  • Compatible with Petzl® Vizion face shield.
