Description

Show Description

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.

  • Made of polystyrene foam with a polycarbonate shell.
  • Lots of ventilation for warm weather climbing.
  • Strong polyester webbing straps, and soft headband for comfort.
  • Headlamp clips and rear elastic hold headlamps in place.
  • 2 sizes with adjustment systems to fit heads of all shapes.
