Petzl Elios Climbing Helmet Extensive Review by for Rock Climbing and Mountaineering

Online PR News – 16-June-2010 – – MILL VALLEY,, one of the most popular climbing web sites in the world, revealed test results of the Petzl Elios helmet for rock climbing and mountaineering. The staff rated the Petzl Elios after extensive field testing in Yosemite, Colorado, and Utah. The Camalot C4 also underwent extensive side by side tests with other cams to evaluate key performance metrics such as ease of use, comfor,and ventilation.

According to gear tester Chris McNamara, "This gets our Best Buy award because it scores second highest yet costs $35 less than the top-scoring Meteor III. Get the Elios if you want a durable helmet that is relatively light weight and can do anything. The Elios works great for alpine and big wall climbing, but is also great for free climbing. It is one of the most common helmets you'll see climber's wearing in Yosemite."
