The go-anywhere, climb-anything helmet.
Petzl designed its Elios Climbing Helmet with versatility in mind, so you can stay safe whether you're rock or ice climbing, mountaineering, caving, canyoneering, or hitting up a via ferrata. Its lightweight ABS shell meets all the standard certifications for climbing, and the expanded polystyrene liner is breathable and prevents the helmet from moving around on your dome while you climb. You can adjust the headband and chin strap for an ideal fit across your noggin, too. Petzl also integrated shutters over the vents so you can close them when you climb in colder temps, and made sure the Elios was compatible with headlamps and the Vizion eye shield (sold separately) so you can be ready for whatever route comes your way.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I recently used this helmet down in Moab Utah for a day of rappelling. It was so comfortable and light, I put my hat in my pack and just kept it there. I would definitely recommend, and have!
Nice basic helmet
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
no complaints - adjustments work well to fit your head. Good quality, so far so good
Continues to be the standard underground
We've been using this helmet for years mapping caves around the world. One aspect of this helmet is how easy it can be disassembled and cleaned, especially now in the age of WNS (white nose syndrome) decon protocol.
Why is there not a gray in the size two?
We are currently sold out of the Gray in size 2, but should have more in stock in the next few weeks.
