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.

My wife and I wear helmets bc skiing in the spring and summer when the snow is firm to icy and rocks and trees appear. She lost her Camp climbing helmet late last summer (it fell out of her new Mammut helmet carrier and she didn't notice), so we ordered another but it (evidently like many/most of that issue) had a dysfunctional adjustment mechanism and we returned it. So it was time to order her a new helmet and this Petzel looked nice. I helped her adjust it and thought "this is a nice helmet." I got my BD Tracer out to put in my pack and found it had lost some of the padding, making for a very loose fit and that the styrofoam was looking a little funky (it was 8 years old). So I ordered a Petzel Meteor for myself. Most comfortable helmet I have. Fit is perfect (1 mm more on my large head and the helmet would be too small--the foam buffer in the front works to prevent sweat coming down to the eyes, so no need yet for my Halo head band). And it is so light it is not even noticeable while skinning and skiing. In addition to protection, I wear a helmet to protect my head from the sun and to keep my head cool. I wore it today on a tour in full sun, 39-49 F, with nice white snow and it kept my head cooler than any other head gear I have (I have a full head of hair, but my scalp will burn without a cover). The ventilation is great. I like this helmet!

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??

Thanks!

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.
