Climbing helmet

Never without his helmet!

The helmet is the indispensable equipment in many outdoor sports. It ensures your safety and effectively protects your head. That's why it is important for you to choose it carefully, depending on the use you intend to make of it. Alpinstore offers a selection of helmets.

Criteria for selecting a good helmet

A good climbing helmet must meet a number of criteria to best protect your head:

- Have an optimal shape so that it does not get in the way while you are climbing.

- Comfortable: Helmet comfort is often given too little importance.

- be safe and pleasant: If your climbing helmet squeezes your head too hard, climbing will quickly become tiring.

- be stable. Since it can be a lifesaver, its propensity to provide the necessary climbing safety is essential.

- The helmet must be able to withstand a fall of five kilos from a height of two metres. This controls the ability of the climbing helmet to withstand the energy generated by such a fall. In addition, the impact resistance of the climbing helmet is tested in front, behind, and at the sides. Only when these tests are successfully completed is the climbing helmet marketed as a climbing helmet.

- Have adjustments for a better personalization: a possibility of adjusting the length of the chin strap or a system of tightening the inner cap, most often using a knob located at the back of the helmet above the nape of the neck.


The different climbing / mountaineering helmets

- Hard shell helmets: As the name suggests, these are climbing helmets with a rigid shell. Damping is done by a strap adjustment system inside the helmet.

Models: titan

- Helmets with foam shells often have a light weight. In the event of an impact, the foam absorbs the energy as the deformable zones of cars do in an accident.

Models: Boreo, Vector, Vapor

- Hybrid helmets combine the qualities of hard shell and foam helmets. These climbing helmets have a thin rigid shell and a foam interior for better energy absorption.

Models: Sirocco, Vision, wall rider


There are also women's climbing helmets and children's climbing helmet models that enjoy the same safety standards as those for adults.

Women's models : Meteor, Vector, Borea, Half Dome, Vision

Children's models : Picchu, Titan, tracer

It should be noted, however, that in the event of a shock or fall, the climbing helmet must be replaced immediately. This is the prerequisite for optimum safety!
