The Petzl Meteora helmet is women's specific redesign of a classic Climbing and Mountaineering helmet with the addition of Ski Touring features. At just 225g The Meteora contends with other super light climbing helmets and is well ventilated.
The Meteora is a very comfortable and stable helmet, this is achieved via OMEGA easy-to-adjust, semi-rigid headband which has a pronounced notch for wearing the helmet with a ponytail. The helmet has a full polystyrene foam lining that is finished with a soft wicking headband. The Meteora is compatible with the Petzl Vizion face shield. This can easily be attached to the helmet providing extra protection from shattered ice and spindrift.
The biggest redesign of the Meteora is that it is now CE-certified Ski Touring helmet. Petzl have achieved this by increasing the side protection offered by the Meteora. It now comes down further a the back of the head and contains more protection ad the side. Please note that this is different to the EN 1077 standard for Alpine Ski Helmets which the Meteora does not meet. The Meteora is also compatible with most ski goggles and features a large cord strap on the back to hold goggles straps in place.
If you're intending to use a helmet where you may encounter frequent minor rock falls and generally more knocks, then we would recommend a helmet with a polycarbonate shell.
