It’s a day for new gear in the shop!!!!

elia-1_6 meteor-2_6Just arrived in store. The brand new Petzl Meteor; featuring the super cool 1 handed magnetic buckle. And the super chic Petzl Elia; a ladies specific fit and design.

Either helmet are ideal for cragging and winter days out, from scrambing, sport or trad climbing. You really do only have 1 head, and 1 very delicate brain! And whilst most people think they wear a helmet for impacts from above (i.e loose rock/dropped gear), the majority of time helmets actually help with impact protection during the fall. The other day I even saw a helmet with crampon puncture marks in the top. This occurred when a winter leader fell on to his belayer. So, maybe as a leader its worth asking your second to wear a shell, as an unconscious belayer would be a proper scary situation.

Head over to the Petzl website, or call Adventure Peaks for more details on these helmets and to buy over the phone 015394 33794.
