Helmets

If you're not protecting your head with a reasonable helmet, you're either pushing a cave that's deeply, horribly tight or else you need to think about just how squishy the human brain really is. Also they're a pretty convenient platform for mounting your primary light.

Camp Rockstar 
£34.50

Camp Rockstar

An old fashioned cradle-fitted helmet, simple yet very suited for our purposes; a useful item for clubs but also. One size fits most, but the Rockstar remains a pretty low-profile piece of kit.It has four side vents and rudimentary headlamp clips (better suited to fixed lamps, or headtorches might need their own clips added) Polypropylene injected shell, various colours available, and with a given weight of 390g.

Petzl Elios

Latest version of the well known, lightweight plastic and foam helmet. New cradle for greater stability and greater ease of adjustment, complete with new nape-of-neck adjustment and new chinstrap buckle. The headband is also lined with a washable, comfortable lining. It is possible to fit most type of caving light to one of these; we are willing to do so upon request if you are buying a package from us. The vents can now masked by small sliding panels, depending on whether you are hot headed or not! Weight only 300g.
Petzl Elia 
£50.00
:

Petzl Elia

Petzl Elia helmet. A helmet particulaly designed for women, and anyone who has long hair! This new helmet has a different adjustment using a sliding clip, rather than the dial used on the previous model. The OMEGA cradle also accommodates ponytails easily, and is less likely to trap hair, as well as seeming more stable than earlier designs. New details include a removable micro fibre head band, plus vent covers which allow the head to be made more cool, or more warm, depending upon activity and environment. The Elia is a climbing helmet, but can also be fitted with most lamps.
Edelrid Ultralight 
£58.50
:

Edelrid Ultralight

Edelrid Ultralight helmet for caving or mountaineering. A light and strong helmet originally developed for climbing, but which will easily accept a Duo or similar bolt-on light, or a traditional lamp bracket (we can fit these on request). It has a head cradle, rather than using foam inserts as in most modern climbing helmets. Stable on the head, and fully adjustable with the cradle going from 54cm to 60cm. We can also obtain the Ultralight Junior, which has a range of 48cm to 58cm.
Petzl Spelios 
£144.00
:

Petzl Spelios

Petzl Spelios integrated helmet and caving lamp. Basically a slight variant on the Elios climbing helmet, with the 14LED Duo fixed on to it. It has the good qualities of both, being a lightweight set which is comfortable to wear, easily adjustable, and basically a reliable set. The advantage of this set is that no helmet needs to be drilled to accept the torch, so no manufacturer's warranties are invalidated. Not such a consideration for personal use; but outdoor centres and clubs may be more comfortable with this solution. The helmet is available in two sizes (2 being the one that fits most adults, 1 fits children and those with small heads) and any colour, as long as it is WHITE. If you are an outdoor centre or similar organisation please contact us for bulk order rates.
Petzl Trios 
£366.00

Petzl Trios

The Trios is Petzl's take on the helmet and bright light combination. The helmet is the well known Elios in white; light, comfortable and adjustable. The light is the rechargeable, Lithium Ion powered Ultra Vario.It has four different lighting modes: ambient; proximity; motion; and distance (spotting). Highest output is 520 lumens (which you will get for 2.5 hours), maximum duration is 40 hours at a perfectly usable 45 lumens. the light is also waterproof to 1 metre for up to thirty minutes. Which, unless you are a diver, is more than you can manage. The Trios has the undoubted advantage of lightness. At 750g with the Accu 2 (two cell battery) it is very suitable for those wanting a durable, cave - specific light, without wanting a more 'solid' headset...It comes with a charger (three hours charging for the Accu 2)and also a headband, so the Ultra Vario can be taken off the helmet - this is pretty easy - and used as a head torch. Helmet guaranteed for three years; the battery, for one...
Petzl Elios Club Package 
£180.00
:

Petzl Elios Club Package

Petzl Elios Club package, set of Four. A cheaper way for clubs or outdoor centres to equip with these decent lightweight helmets. The helmet is broadly similar to the new Elios, with two simplfications: 1. No vent sliders 2. Simplified headband Size 1 is available in white ONLY. Size 2 is available in orange ONLY. The headtorch retaining clips are as good as ever, for clubs who use headtorches such as the Pixa 3.
