Even for the smallest outdoor enthusiasts - the children's climbing helmet Argali KID fits already with a head circumference of 47 cm!
With this robust hybrid helmet also the alpine junior is well advised and on the safe side. Because it conforms the two main criteria for a good climbing helmet: full adjustability for an optimal fit and and a cool look, so your child tries the helmet even without a television ban.
Using the Knob Control is a fast, safe and precise fine adjustment of the entire headband with a handle accurately and easily possible. In addition, both Y-straps can be adjusted in two directions, so that nothing even on the ears suppresses or scrubs. The high wearing comfort remains through the eight air inlets even preserved on warm days. The ARGALI KID protects by a classic shape also in a lateral impact and is therefore especially suitable for rock climbing, ice climbing and mountaineering. That the climbing helmet is universally tunable, it also fits perfectly for rental in crags.
The climbing helmet is made out of a robust hard outer shell out of ABS and a comfortable EPS-inner shell. Through the padded chin straps, the ARGALI is also comfortable to wear.

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.
