Choice of technologyThere are two technologies on the market today. Each offers different advantages, but both are highly effective for climbing, hiking and mountaineering.

- The ABS plastic shell: its main advantage is robustness. As this technology is less expensive, it's ideal for children and occasional climbers.

- The polycarbonate hull: known for its lightness and good shock absorption. Ideal for regular riders.

Head sizeHead circumference: important when choosing your helmet, head circumference is easy to measure. Use a flexible tape measure to measure the circumference of your skull. Place it at forehead level and work your way around, passing over the hump at the back. The aim is to get to the largest point on your head.

Features not to forgetFeatures to bear in mind: a hiking/mountaineering helmet is suitable for your activity if, and only if, it complies with three main characteristics:

- The fit: whether it's straps, a thumbwheel or a notched plastic clip, the fit must be perfect during your outing. Note that the adjustment system must be easy to use, especially when wearing gloves.

- Comfort : the helmet should cover your head perfectly, but should not reveal any unpleasant compression points.

- Vision : it must be possible to look upwards. It's essential to be able to see what's ahead.
