What helmet do the top climbers in the world wear? Best to ask Will Mayo who has just been crushing it whether he is on rock or ice. “Well, first, it conceals my receding hairline (joke). Honestly, I would have died long ago if it wasn’t for my helmet. I admit I don’t wear a helmet sport climbing sometimes or in the gym, but otherwise I almost always wear it. I have been climbing ice and mixed for so long, I actually feel somewhat naked without it”. That might be due to the fact that with a maximum weight of 165 g, the Petzl SIROCCO helmet sets a new standard for lightness. The one-piece construction minimizes helmet weight while retaining excellent impact resistance, due to the mechanical properties of expanded polypropylene (EPP). The textile adjustment system also contributes to its lightness. This helmet comes with a new magnetic buckle which allows the chinstrap to be fastened with one hand. The SIROCCO helmet also has excellent ventilation distributed around the helmet.
We will be fully stocked with Sirocco helmets at the Michigan Ice Fest headquarters- stop by and see how much they don’t weight!
