A pictoral representation of the UIAA-106 and EN-12492 standards for helmets.
Being the strongest helmet in the world, "Aegis plus"is the first climbing helmet to adopt TPU, EPP and PORON®XRD™ material. It's sturdy, durable quality and wide usage make it your best choice for mountaineering, climbing, high activities and all kinds of adventure sports.
• TPU Shell
TPU boasts excellent shock resistance, good cushioning performance, high mechanical strength and bending strength, perfect wear-resistance and good elasticity. What’s more, its features, such as durable quality, ageing resistance, ozone resistance and UV resistance, make it the favored choice in the aerospace industry. TPU material also possesses prominent cold resistance, which allows it to maintain good elasticity, flexibility and other physical properties when the temperature drops to 35℃ below the freezing point.
• EPP Liner
The liner is made of EPP foaming material, which acts as a better compression buffer than normal EPS material. This makes the helmet stronger, lighter and more durable.
• PORON®XRD™ Backing
PORON®XRD™ extreme impact protection material is the best material for extreme impact protection and for absorbing repeated impact. 90% of the energy by the impact of high frequency can be absorbed.PORON®XRD™ can well adapt to the body shape and thus can disperse the energy caused by impacts.
Its impact absorption capacity can remain excellent over time.
• The ergonomic design can adapt to every head shape. The big adjusting knob allows convenient one hand operation even with climbing gloves on.
• The helmet has six large vents to reduce moisture and heat, ensuring more comfortable and clear-headed mountaineering experience.
• The slightly upward arched frontlines enlarges climber’s vision.
• Head lamp or snow goggles can be mounted to the slot on the helmet.
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.
| 330 g|
M-XL: 330 g / 11.6 oz
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.
The sizing options of the helmet according to the manufacturer.
| 19.00 in - 24.00 in|
XS-M: 48-57 cm / 19-22 in
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 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.
