A pictoral representation of the UIAA-106 and EN-12492 standards for helmets.
The Speed 2.0 is technically retired but it's still sold online.The Speed 2.0 is no longer produced by CAMP. We're showing it as "available" on WeighMyRack because you can still find it at trustworthy online retailers.
One of the lightest helmets in the world.
22 streamlined vent holes for excellent ventilation.
Simple and secure dial adjustment system.
The Speed helmet was designed specifically for competitive ski-mountaineering and climbing at the highest levels. The profiled fit combines with the minimal weight for a helmet that climbers and skiers often say they forget they are even wearing. A new external polycarbonate shell reduces the amount of exposed structural Styrofoam for improved durability and 22 streamlined vent holes make it exceptionally cool when moving fast in the mountains or climbing in warm conditions. Updated for 2015 with new colors and graphics.

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.

The helmet I tested is white with orange graphics (it also comes in green with orange graphics and orange with green graphics), reflects solar heat, and keeps my brain cool when stressful situations demand quick decisions. This makes me think that Seinfeld was right—I'm just too dumb to stop these sports.
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.
