The Petzl Boreo helmet was developed to give your head more protection while being very durable.
The shell combines hard plastic and light, dense foam to absorb impact either from contact with the rock or from falling stones and ice chunks.
It gives excellent protection against lateral, front and rear impacts, which is important if you get flipped upside down in a lead fall or punch through an unstable snow bridge.
It has optimized volume on the head and wide ventilation holes make it a comfortable helmet overall.
We haven’t had an opportunity to test it at the crags yet, but the spring 2018 season isn’t far away!
