The adjustable-strength chinstrap makes it ideal for both work at height and on the ground. It has ventilation holes with sliding shutters to allow airflow through the helmet. With its potential for integration of a Petzl headlamp, hearing protection, and multiple accessories, it is an entirely modular helmet, thus responding to the specific additional needs of professionals. The high visibility version features a fluorescent outer shell with phosphorescent clips and reflective bands, for optimal visibility of the worker, day or night.

Key Features

Very comfortable:

  • Six-point textile suspension conforms perfectly to the shape of the head.
  • Centerfit feature allows perfect centering of the helmet on the head, thanks to its two side adjustment wheels.
  • Flip&Fit system allows the headband to be positioned in a low position, guaranteeing that the helmet fits securely on the head. The system folds into the shell for easy storage and transportation.
  • Interchangeable standard comfort foam.

Protection designed for work at height and on the ground, day or night:

  • DUAL chinstrap allows the worker to adjust chinstrap strength in order to adapt the helmet to different environments: work at height (EN 12492) or on the ground (EN 397). The clip has two positions, corresponding to these two uses: high strength, limiting the risk of losing the helmet during a fall, and low strength, limiting the risk of strangulation if the helmet is snagged while the user is on the ground.
  • Shock absorption achieved through deformation of the outer shell.
  • Vent holes with sliding shutters allow the ventilation to be adjusted as needed, while wearing the helmet.
  • fluorescent outer shell with phosphorescent clips and reflective bands, for optimal visibility of the worker, day or night.

Modular accessories:

  • Eye shield with Easyclip side attachment system for easy installation.
  • Petzl headlamp with mounts, or headlamp with elastic headband.
  • Helmet protector keeps the shell free from soiling and paint splash.
  • Nape protector provides effective sun and rain protection for the nape of the neck.
  • Nametag holder allows user to be easily identified.
  • Changeable chinstrap and foam.
  • Hearing protection.
  • Available in two high-visibility colors: yellow and orange.

Do not use this helmet in activities for which it is not designed. Activities at height present a risk of serious head injury. Wearing a helmet can significantly reduce this risk, but cannot entirely eliminate it. In a major impact, the helmet deforms to absorb the maximum amount of energy possible, sometimes to the point of destroying the helmet.


How should I clean the inside of my Petzl helmet?

As with any other plastic product, Petzl does not recommend using chemical products to clean your helmet.

  1. Wash helmets in lukewarm soapy water (pH neutral, 30° C maximum), then rinse thoroughly with fresh tap water.
  2. Use only household face and body soap. All other cleaning products, such as solvents, stain removers, degreasers are too powerful, are incompatible with polycarbonate, polystyrene or nylon, and can weaken the helmet shell.
  3. The shell of ABS helmets can be cleaned using a cloth lightly moistened with rubbing alcohol. Warning: do not dip the helmet directly in alcohol.
  4. Do not use a high-pressure water sprayer.
