Ski mountaineering can be risky business. Most routes are comprised of some combination of cracks, dihedrals, chutes, couloirs, or steep-but-not-quite-vertical rock faces that inevitably hold potentially day-ruining hard chunks and blocks. Water is routinely melted and refrozen as the temperatures change from day to night and back again, and this cycle is notorious for encouraging hard things to take a gravity ride down the mountain. Lord help you if you encounter one of those falling pieces without a helmet. The Mammut Wall Rider MIPS uses cutting edge technology to weigh in under 250g while at the same time remaining fully impact certified. This MIPS technology creates a low-friction layer within the helmet and helps to disperse the forces from blows to the top of your head, therefore lowering the chance for serious injury when you do encounter falling debris. The Mammut Wall Rider MIPS helmet will keep your brain and head safe and sound whether you're adult-sledding or hunting for the steep and deep in the big mountains.
