Rocketing through the atmosphere, Petzl's updated Meteor helmet seems to appear only as a brief flash of light whizzing past on the skin track. This is the first CE-certified "ski touring helmet", combining light weight protection and ventilation into one package. With the Meteor, Petzl has pioneered a cutting edge race helmet with side, front, and rear protection that will keep you skiing all year round. The sleek looking expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam helmet has a lightweight polycarbonate shell for added durability and it comes in a variety of color options. A glove-friendly ratcheting fit system in the back allows for a secure fit and quick adjustments. One helmet for year-round performance!

  • Designed in accordance with Petzl's TOP AND SIDE PROTECTION label to go above and beyond typical mountaineering helmet tests.
  • Better side, front, and rear protection than the top-impact climbing helmet certification (EN 12492) and better weight and ventilation than the alpine ski helmet certification (EN 1077).
  • Optimal ventilation on both the ascent and descent.
  • Front of helmet is specifically designed for integration of ski goggles, combined with an elastic band in the rear for your goggle strap.
  • Two clips in front and a rear elastic band for securing a headlamp to the helmet.
  • Semi-rigid headband can be adjusted easily, even with gloves on.
  • Compatible with VIZION and SKREEN eye shields.
  • Certifications: CE EN 12492, CE casque de ski de randonnĂ©e, UIAA.

Question from Patricia Franco
Wondering if I could use this helmet during the Trofeo Mezzalama. It requires that the helmet "meets both CE EN 12492 and EN 1077 class B standards." Would this helmet fly??

Answer from jbo
Hi Patricia, it is not certified to EN 1077 (skiing) standards so it will not fly. It has enough strength / impact protection for that cert, but the vents are too big (allowing a ski pole to pass through). Petzl is trying to establish a new standard that eliminates that silly ski pole stipulation.
