Feel free to open the throttle a little further with the Salomon Mountain (MTN) Lab helmet. The ‘Lab is certified to both alpine skiing and mountaineering standards, so you are better protected if you sketch out. Plus, Salomon was listening to its backcountry team when they explained no one will wear it if it’s heavy, cumbersome, or hot. They innovated with a new 4D EPS construction that offers alpine-like protection at a fraction of the weight. A silky Activedry Merino wool liner keeps sweat at bay and is comfortable enough to wear on the up (saving valuable pack space). The Salomon MTN Lab is the new lightweight, dual-certified, star kid on the block.

  • CE-EN1077, EN 12492, and ASTM F-2040 alpine skiing and mountaineering certifications for maximum safety.
  • Comes with a slick carry case that can be donned like a backpack.
  • Innovative EPS 4D construction offers superior shock protection.
  • Headlamp clips and goggle keeper make sure your gear stays in place.
  • Removable Advanced Skin Active Dry Merino wool liner wicks moisture and stink.
  • Forehead clearance for large alpine goggles.
  • ISPO 2015/2016 Award Winner.

Question from BFW
 
Looking for a lighter helmet for touring but have a huge head. The one size fits all approach from Camp and others never work for me. Smith helmets are the only ones that seem to fit with their extra large ranges coming in around 63-67cm. Do y'all know of any lighter helmets in the Salomon Mtn lab style that would wrap around a big headed human like me? I like the extra protection for impact as I tour in Wyoming/Idaho mostly. Thanks!

Hey BFW! Yeah, I'd have to agree with you there that One Sizes Fits All doesn't really. Dang, 63-67cm though? I think the Large maxes out at 62cm in this guy though so that's probably off. The L/XL Kong Kosmos also maxes out at 62cm.

If you want crash protection and wear goggles, this helmet is worth the extra weight and size.

Comfortable with two liners (one with earmuffs, and a thinner liner without for warm days). Works perfectly with goggles and headlamps. Has excellent ski goggle/forehead ventilation for keeping your view fog-free on long descents or when crossing stormy ridge lines. Larger and heavier than a climbing helmet but offers superior impact protection from a crash; and better overall coverage of your temples and rear head. It has also proved durable over a long season.

I don't really notice the weight when compared to carrying my BD Vapor helmet, but when wearing goggles to ski fast I am much more comfortable in the MTN Lab helmet. Furthermore, it's great peace of mind to know I have excellent impact protection. I even wear it for resort laps on warm spring days.

Great helmet for warmer weather skimo activities. I will admit I don't always wear a helmet ski mountaineering, but when I do this is perfect. It works well with goggles, headlamp, and the venting is much better than my 20 year old Giro, which I still use for colder days in bounds, and which my son is less embarrassed by (I bought the white because while black is cool, white is cooler.) He claims I look like a mushroom. Regardless, it does exactly what I wanted, replaces skiing in an old Meteor, and addressed the fact I almost never took my Giro backcountry. 5 stars because it's not Solly's fault I look like a mushroom to a 10-year old, but his Ruroc is definitely cooler looking...

Question from FREDERICK L
 
How are the vents open and closed? They seem fixed open to me.

Thanks

Hey Frederick, good eye! You are correct, they are fixed open. I corrected our typo indicating that there was a way to open/close them.

Not as light as my climbing helmet, but it's light and more comfortable to use with goggles than my climbing helmet. Comes with 2 liners ( with and without ear flaps). The goggle and headlamp retainers make this a fully functional mountaineering helmet. Pretty well-ventilated. I've been using it more at the resort than touring, but it is plenty light and ventilated for touring.

So sad they got rid of the sweet yellow version. Not very French of them.
