A pictoral representation of the UIAA-106 and EN-12492 standards for helmets.
The STUBAI NIMBUS (lat., Halo) is a state of the art, ultralight climbing helmet! Thanks to the use of polycarbonate and In-Mould technology the NIMBUS weighs 240 grams only. Its low weight and perfect shape means you could almost forget you are wearing it. The NIMBUS has an adjustable chin-strap, and a simple adjuster wheel for a perfect fit. With good ventilation and a headlamp holder, it is equally useful in the heat of the day or the dark of the night.
> 13 ventilation openings
> One-hand adjustment of headband
> Adjustable chin-strap
> Ergonomic shape
In grams, the weight, as stated by the manufacturer/brand.
If there are differences in weight (due to multiple size or optional accessories) we note those here.
This is the gender as stated by the manufacturer/brand.
We use the term "Men" and "Unisex" interchangeably, as there is no difference between these types of helmets.

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.

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 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.
