Show Description

Ultralight so you barely know it's there, the Edelrid Salathe Helmet is a great option for all types of climbing. Expanded polypropylene cushions your head from falling objects, and a hard shell in the upper and front area gives you additional protection. Lots of ventilation dissipates heat on warm days. On the front, headlamp attachment points can hold a light when you climb into the night.

  • Made of expanded polypropylene for lightweight energy absorption.
  • Partial hard shell adds impact protection and durability in key areas.
  • Large ventilation openings to help you keep a cool head.
  • Padded interior adds comfort.
  • Lightweight adjustment system reduces weight and provides a secure fit.
  • 2 front clips and rear elastic for attaching a headlamp.
