72048-100-138-0 4028545037127 If you’re looking for the perfect climbing helmet, there are three things you should always ask yourself. Is it light? Is it comfortable and is it well-fitting? And does it provide reliable protection from head impacts and falling rocks? If the answer to all of those questions is “yes” then you must be talking about the Salathe helmet from Edelrid. This incredible helmet is the ultimate featherweight champion, weighing only 200g, the Salathe is one of the lightest helmet lines on the market!
The explanation as to why the Salathe from Edelrid is so light is due to its ultra-light hybrid construction. The outer shell is made from expanded polypropylene, which is commonly known for its impact-absorbing qualities, as well as having an extremely high level of shock resistance and dimensional stability.
The upper part of the Salathe features a hard shell in case of rockfall. This robust and lightweight upper has been constructed using ABS to provide even greater protection against falling rocks and debris. The ergonomic shape of the Salathe fits firmly on the head without being too noticeable. The shape is also head-encompassing, meaning there’s no way this incredible helmet will slip around as you move. Whilst being both comfortable and lightweight, the Salathe design also offers optimum side, front and rear impact protection.
To ensure ultimate wear comfort, Edelrid have manufactured the Salathe with large air vents to ensure optimal ventilation on hot climbing days. The featured padding prevents unwanted pressure points and absorbs perspiration as you go on. This padding can also be removed easily for washing and ALL Salathe helmets come with spare padding as standard.
The strap adjustment system featured on the Salathe is minimalist yet ensures the helmet stays securely on the head, whilst also maintaining a reduced weight and volume. All types of headlamps can be quickly and easily attached to the helmet with two clips on the front and elastic at the back.
Just as Edelrid say, “play it safe”, and with the Salathe you’re guaranteed maximum safety as well as comfort whilst you climb.
