This all-purpose helmet provides protection for cragging, ice routes and alpine. Its polycarbonate shell is an excellent first line of defence, while the interior foam absorbs shock. The size is micro-adjustable, and at below 200g it won't feel like you have a rock in your approach pack. The addition of a Recco reflector between the shell and the EPS foam helps organized rescue find you should you find yourself in need.

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).
