Elios or Altios? why one over the other?

If your using it for climbing, get the lightest helmet you can. Out of these two the Elios is lighter. I climb with the Petzl Meteor III. The new Wild Country Rock Lite looks pretty sweet. It's super light (a few grams heavier than the meteor) and is well built. You can buy a plastic cover that screws onto the top for alpine climbing. It adds another layer of protection for those sharp ice blocks.

I can't speak for the Alitos, but I love the Elios. Its cheap, light, and protects your brain! I didn't see any reason to spend more money to get the Alitos, and now I'm glad I didn't.
