Ski mountaineering can be risky business. Some routes are comprised of cracks, dihedrals, chutes, couloirs, and steep-but-not-quite-vertical rock faces that hold millions of potential day-ruining chunks of debris. Water is routinely melted and refrozen as the temps change from day to night and back, loosening rocks and semi- or very-frozen chunks of ice and snow. 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 being fully impact certified. The MIPS technology builds a low-friction layer into the helmet, helping to disperse impact forces from the top and therefore lowering the chance of serious injury. 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.
