Wicked Swing
5 5

If you can pony up the dough go with it. Takes just a flick of the wrist. Has an amazing swing with the majority of the weight in the head. Easy to control the depth of your sticks. Works well on pure ice and mixed. Modular heads and spike with attachmetn point for umbilicals are nice touches.

top notch helmet...combo construction is the best of both worlds...tough shell (like the Roc) for ruggedness with a foam liner (like the Meteor) for cutting grams...lightweight and durable with great comfort all at a price that wont break the bank...been on 12 hr glacial slogs and up sport routes with no complaints

believe the reviews...they are top of the line...the eliptical design gives them more linear stability...they are lightweight (dont weigh much more than the CF models) and the FlickLock design is unique on these...most have two FlickLock adjustment points...this only has one...the lower section extends and is fixed in place while the upper portion has the FlickLock allowing you adjust the length...angled handles are very comfortable and absorb sweat well

seriously it is...if you're debating between these or the reg. Denali's spend the extra couple bucks here...the Televator greatly reduces calve strain and fatigue...puts the effort onto your quads...traction is great both on the siderails and toe points...MSR has implemented a very rugged design...also the floatation tails are a plus in deep powder

its pro shell so the quality is there...but i'm a little concerned about the long term wear compared to other...picked this up as my "fast & light" shell...it is a few ounces lighter than most and its material allows it to be more packable which is a plus when maxing out a 30L pack for 2 days...i prefer my Arc'teryx Beta AR (esp for roughly the same cost) when for longer slogs...higher denier construction is more durable
