Introducing the "only need to wear one" Scott Couloir Mountain Helmet. We ski and we wear ski helmets. We mountaineer and we wear climbing helmets. We ski mountaineer and hmm, which helmet to grab? Describing “spicy” mountain objectives, famed local mountaineer Neal Beidleman has been known to quip “you should wear two helmets for that route”. We prefer to put on the new, dual-standard-certified Couloir Mountain Helmet.
Ski helmets are designed and certified for impacts at speed, basically you hitting something. Climbing helmets are designed and certified for impacts from things hitting you, think falling rock and ice. The Scott Couloir helmet is certified to protect you while climbing and skiing, also known as ski mountaineering. In addition, the Couloir Mountain Helmet checks the three things we look for in a helmet.
Does it look good? Using a thinner, lower profile Casidion® material improves safety and reduces needless “martian head” and “gaper-gaps” this low pro lid looks really nice on your noggin. Is it lightweight? Yes, with the thinner and lower profile this helmet is one of the lightest dual norm helmets on the market. Is it going to protect me? Absolutely. The lighter, thinner temperature resistant Casidion® nano technology reduces spine injuries (from the helmet) and absorbs and diverts 40% of the impact energy away from your head.
Additional features like, passive venting, quick dial adjustment, secure headlamp clips and dual Coolmax padding configuration, that provides comfort in frigid to sweltering temperatures, round out this big mountain brain bucket. If your next objective looks like a “two helmet” day, one Scott Couloir Mountain Helmet has you covered!
