Rated5out of5byZirbmonkeyfromMost comfortable helmet I've ownedI originally got this helmet for ice climbing. But I now use it for everything. Ice, sport, multi-pitch. Now I use it for biking. Product spec says Petzl has it certified for climbing, cycling, and whitewater.
The best feature is how easily it adjusts if you want to have a winter hat for ice season, or tighten it back down in the summer. It will snug down easily, but stays very comfortable. Super comfortable. And yes, it's super light compared to anything else I've had.
I'm now doing a lot of night biking, and the headlamp clips work great. Other helmets can get lop-sided with a headlamp on top, but this one stays where it should.
Really awesome helmet.

Rated4out of5byjuzxfromVery lightNot too shaby. Haven't got hit with a rock yet, so I wouldn't know for sure if it works, but it is nice, lightweight, and fits into my NorthFace Tierra35 bag like a glove.

Rated4out of5bylinkar88fromNice helmetThis is helmet is very light and allows for a lot of air flow. Also, it is certified for climbing and biking, which is very convenient. However, the helmet is quite large, but the adjustable straps make it stay pretty well on any size head. Also, the adjustable straps are somewhat difficult to loosen (compared to the dial on other models) and require taking the helmet off, but they work fine.

Rated5out of5byMidwest IsnfromWell worth the money.I use this helmet for ice, sport, traditional, and mountaineering. When I first took the helmet out of the box I could only tell I had it in my hand by looking at it, the weight is wildly light. I have bumped it against rock and ice quite a few times now and have very little ware to show for it. When you have the helmet on, you have no neck pain as you can barely feel it on your head. My previous helmet was an Ecrin Roc, this thing basically gave me scoliosis from looking up at my partner as he climbed, and you know you had it on all day for sure. It's highly adjustable because you can adjust it any direction you need, I had no issues fitting it to my head in the summer and over a wool cap in the winter. You can't go wrong with this helmet, and yes it is expensive but well worth the money. You wont be disappointed.
