Foam Helmets

How to Choose A Climbing Helmet?

Wearing a climbing helmet is an important part of keeping yourself protected at the crag, wether your climbing or belaying. A helmet will protect you from rocks falling down on you, you falling down and hitting the rock or banging your head in the overhang. When getting a helmet there are three main things to consider, helmet type, type of climbing you do and getting the right fit. 

All helmets must meet industry standards for impact protection, with the standard for overhead protection being greater than the side-protection standard.

Helmet Styles

There are 3 types of climbing helmets: hard shell, foam, and hybrid. As with all things, each type has its advantages and disadvantages, we will be looking onto the foam helmet here.

Foam Helmets are comparable to bicycle helmets. They mainly consist of foam, usually EPS, to bear the force of an impact, and then have a tiny layer of polycarbonate to protect against minor bumps and bruises. Foam helmets are usually the lightest option, but in this case light weight means more fragile and higher costs.
