Sporting a lightweight but also strong and robust ABS plastic shell that is resistant to flexing, the DMM Ascent helmet was originally conceived for outdoor centres but many of the same requirements for such use transfer to elsewhere in the climbing world.
Helmets need to be comfortable - so you can wear them for extended periods, easy to adjust to get the right fit - important for not just comfort but to be able to sit correctly to offer the most protection possible. They should be lightweight, as low profile as possible - heads are big and heavy enough without adding more bulk! For the brutal heat of the Scottish summer, they should be well ventilated and of course protection against falling objects (rock, nuts, cams, smartphones etc..) The Ascent ticks all the boxes and then some...
A wide size range, good ventilation and is available in highly visible colours. It also has lightweight buckles, a comfortable chin strap and headtorch clips should you find yourself caught out by fading daylight.
