Featherlite all around helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Camp Speed helmet is a great light weight helmet for skiing and climbing. Tough enough for any day on rock or ice, and light enough for the biggest of alpine endeavors.

Besides being durable and light, the Speed Helmet has a great fit adjustment feature and works well with hats. I have never had a problem with the Speed helmet sliding forwards or backwards on my head, a problem I've had with other helmets in the past. In addition the Speed works very well with goggles, I've used both Smith I/Os and Julbo Revolution goggles with no problem.

For a ski mountaineer this is a great do it all helmet. Being one of the lightest helmets on the market, there are no excuse anymore to not have a helmet on every day out.

So is this helmet officially certified for skiing, or not? It says that it is a "ski mountaineering" helmet, but C.A.M.P.'s website says that it is CE/UIAA certified for climbing, no mentioin of certified for skiing.

Anyone know?

Responded on

No, it is not certified for skiing. To pass as a ski/snowboard helmet, it needs to be ASTM F2040 and/or CE EN1077 certified.

I work for a ziplining compant in Wisconsin, their is a rock climbing wall to start the course. Do these helments work for ziplining helmets as well?

Responded on

yes, though your company could save a lot of money and buy heavier, less ventialted helmets that still offer good protection like mostclimbing walls and zipline areas do.

Perfect Spring/Summer/Race Helmet

I was wondering why I saw this helmet on the heads of almost all elite-level rando racers. Now I understand why: so light and comfy you barely even notice it's there. The fit is adaptable enough to use it on your bare head, or with a sun cap underneath, or with a thin hat underneath for colder temps.

Speed is what I need

This helmet has been great for backcountry skiing all winter. The weight is phenomenal and a great step up (or down?) from my Smith Vantage, which is now relegated to in bounds use. This helmet allows me to just keep it on my head on the up and the down since it is so well ventilated and light. This saves me time on my transitions and lets me keep my light wool beanie on at all times. The bright color makes me visible to partners and gives me that panache I so routinely love. I was going to try using it for rock climbing but after a few outings I don't think its robust enough to be scraped up under roofs and in chimneys so I just use my climbing helmets for that and keep this as my skiing and ski mountaineering helmet.

I forget it's there sometimes

This helmet is crazy light, but doesn't sacrifice any coverage area, the best of both worlds. It honestly doesn't feel like it's there sometimes.
Just the right amount of hardshell coating in the spots where it matters, none where it doesn't to save on weight. It's been pretty durable so far, although I've only had it out a few times. Beat the crap out of if ice climbing the other weekend and took lots of ice to the head over two days and the helmet doesn't show a scratch.
Adjustment is easy to dial in and it fits nicely to my head. Will be interesting to see how if fells when skiing.
A great addition to your kit if you're looking to cut weight in the helmet area. You really can't find a lighter helmet!

Best helmet I've used

I want my helmet to be safe and light. I really don't want to know it is on my head until something hits me or I fall. The Speed is the answer to these needs. It is the world's lightest helmet at only 7.4 oz, and fits like a dream. It provides a lot of coverage with a low enough profile that I can easily get it under the hood of any jacket. And whether I’m wearing it with our without a hat it is comfortable and unobtrusive.
I have used the Speed for everything from ski mountaineering races to high-end rock, ice and alpine climbs. I love how I can strap it to the top of my pack for long approaches and not even notice it. And on harder climbs where weight savings makes a big difference, it is a dream.
Once again this is another product from CAMP that leads the market in several disciplines. Honestly, it is the only helmet I wear anymore … for anything.

This is a great ultralight helmet! I brought it on a Himalayan adventure and it was perfect since there are long approaches to the technical areas.
