Offering just the right amount of protection, especially when considering their weight and breathability, climbing helmets are increasingly being pressed into service by many backcountry users looking to cash in on these qualities. Seeing this trend, companies like Mammut and Petzl have devised a “ski touring” standard that recognizes the unique protective considerations ski touring requires. From Mammut, the Wall Rider meets this new ski touring standard whilst retaining the climbing EN 12492 certification. It achieves this by using a combination of EPP (expanded polypropylene) with a reinforcing hard shell in the spots that count. Combining this with a minimalistic adjustment harness and wide-open vents, a supremely lightweight helmet is born ready for long boot packs, tight couloirs, or trips to your favorite powder stash. For the adamant dawn/dusk patrollers out there, Mammut included two headlamp clips in the front with an elastic strap in the back, allowing for the reliable attachment of a headlamp or your goggles. For consistent, lightweight, and breathable protection in the backcountry, bring along the Mammut Wall Rider helmet.
