Detailed description

The ALTIOS' hybrid suspension system, composed of a mesh panel and expanded polystyrene liner, makes this helmet extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear. Thanks to this innovative design, the helmet ‘floats' above the head for a near-weightless feeling. The space between the head and the liner allows for effective ventilation with the Climate Control System. Durable ABS shell. This helmet is very ergonomic, adapting to any head shape, and offers two options for attaching a headlamp: a removable ADAPT system-compatible mount, or clips.

  •   Lightweight and comfortable fit, thanks to a hybrid suspension system combining:*
- an expanded polystyrene liner for shock absorption
- a comfortable inner mesh liner, which makes the helmet feel weightless on the head
  •   Durable construction: injection molded ABS shell provides protection
  •   Climate Control System: provides ventilation between the inner shell and the top of the head (can be closed in cold weather with the 6 plugs stored in the inner shell)
  •   Removable ADAPT clip, for easy attachment of any Petzl headlamp equipped with the ADAPT system (TIKKA/ZIPKA family)
  •   Removable and washable headband foam and mesh
  •   Easy-to-use molded adjustment wheel quickly dials in the headband size, even while the helmet is being worn
  •   Adjustable chinstrap, nape height and headband for an extremely comfortable fit
  •   Chinstrap can be adjusted forward or backward for added comfort Adjustment buckles are placed to the side, away from the chin
  •   Narrow polyester webbing straps offer improved comfort
  •   Headlamp attachment with 4 optimally placed clips
  •   Compatible with VIZION face shield

comfy helmet due to the mesh inner which creates an air gap between the top of the helmet and your head, fits like the Elios but sit a bit taller on your head. or in my friends wording makes you look like a berk. i couldn't careless it fits nicely it adjusts well and it does its job of protecting your noodle. Also the air gaps can be closed off to make it a bit more water proof using the velcro backed padding that comes with it Pros - comfy - cool little features Cons - Pricey

Had this for 4ish years and despite using it on every outdoor day it is still going strong. Might not be the heaviest but not the lightest. Comfort come from the mesh and cradle system like the previous reviewer said. Stands up to everything it has been through - crammed in bags and dropped out them! The headlamp clips are at the perfect height for using those on unplanned late night descents. The chinstrap buckle is well placed at the side of the head rather than under the chin, which causes far less irritation than other designs and the webbing is nice and soft unlike other helmets I own. A great helmet but if you are a gram-shaver, it's not for you.
