In climbing, the danger of hitting your head is very high, either by falling stones from above or hitting your head on the wall if you turn. That’s why the helmet is one of the most essential accessories for this practice.
Types of helmet:
- Hard shell helmets: are usually made of ABS plastic and have padded lining. They are sturdy, but a little uncomfortable.
- Lightweight expanded foam helmets: have an outer protective shell with great impact absorption capacities. They offer good protection and are quite comfortable.
- Ultralight foam helmets: have a monobloc shell design and are simple.
