sirocco

SIROCCO: Ultra-lightweight climbing and mountaineering helmet

With a maximum weight of 165 g, the SIROCCO helmet becomes the new standard in terms of lightness.

The monobloc construction minimizes helmet weight while retaining excellent impact resistance, due to the mechanical properties of expanded polypropylene (EPP). The textile adjustment system also contributes to its lightness. This helmet comes with a new magnetic buckle which allows the chinstrap to be attached with one hand.

The SIROCCO helmet also has excellent ventilation distributed around the helmet.

With their exclusive design, Petzl harnesses guarantee optimal weight distribution. The waistbelt is wider on the sides. The interior straps are doubled in the waistbelt and the leg loops. The seams in the waistbelt avoid creating hard points and chafing.

The new DoubleBack buckles are easier to manipulate. They allow the harness to be more easily adjusted with one hand (on the waistbelt and leg loops of select models).

The rigid equipment loops at the front of the harness allow easy and quick access to equipment. The flexible equipment loops, positioned in the rear, avoid the pressure points created when wearing a pack.

Each harness has a specific retainer for removable CARITOOL tool holders.
