Combining the light nature of EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) with a unique Curv thermoplastic shell, the Edelrid Salathe Lite helmet is a svelte and comfortable climbing and ski mountaineering helmet perfect for weight-conscious ski tourers in alpine environments. The Curv shell is a hard plastic formed around the impact points of the helmet, which offers the dual benefit of adding to the helmet's impact resistance and protecting the EPP foam from abrasion and minor dings. While the Salathe Lite is not certified for alpine skiing, it does offer enhanced side and back impact protection compared to other climbing helmets, allowing it to possess a climbing and ski touring certification. This blend of weight and protection makes it great for ski mountaineers looking for the ventilation and comfort of a climbing helmet, but with a bit more protection should you unexpectedly find yourself up close and personal with a tree. In another nod to skiers (and high-altitude mountaineers), the shell of the helmet and rear attachment bungee are designed to be compatible with ski goggles as well as headlamps. From spring mountaineering descents to dedicated powder laps in the winter, the Salathe Lite will gladly go along.

  • Interior padding is removable and washable for stress-free sweating and liberal sunscreen application.
  • Adjustable webbing harness provides a comfortable and secure fit.
  • Large ventilation holes allow for great airflow on hot days filled with sweaty booting.
  • Curv hard-shell adds protection from rockfall and keeps the helmet protected from daily use.
  • Compatible with a wide range of headlamps and ski goggles!
  • Certified for climbing under the EN 12492 standard and ski touring under PCSR-002 11.2019.
