The Pulse is the ultimate ski mountaineering helmet and one of the few helmets certified for both climbing and skiing. Featuring 13 vents when opened up, the Pulse offers exceptional ventilation when playing hard. The three front vents open and close from the outside by sliding a handle and the top vent can be opened by removing a plug. The optional Winter Kit includes plugs for the side and rear vents and warm ear flaps for cold alpine days. The Pulse is also designed to work well with both goggles and headlamps.

Quick Adjust refers to the straps of the helmet. Do you want the ability to ability to "quickly" adjust the fit. This could be a dial, or other plastic pieces.
Really, most climbers don't need to change the fit of the helmet often, unless you're climbing with and without hats, or you have big hair that flattens and then requires tightening after climbing for awhile.
|Face Shield Compatable||No|
The main climbing gear certifications are CE and UIAA--and normally the UIAA creates the rules that the CE body also supports. When possible, we try to list all the certifications the product carries.
To sell a climbing product in Europe, the device must be CE certified. There are no official requirements to sell climbing gear in the US. The UIAA certification is a voluntary process.
No voice explanation but the video shows views of Camp Pulse Helmet from multiple angles.
The Pulse helmet is a lightweight, breathable option for ski mountaineers and backcountry skiers. Although I think some features (like the headlamp / goggle attachment) need revision, the dual climbing / skiing certification makes me more inclined to grab this helmet for a day in the mountains.
The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
