Petzl designed its Elia Climbing Helmet specifically for women so you can send safely and comfortably. Its lightweight ABS shell meets some of the most rigorous certifications for climbing so you know you don't have some cheap piece of plastic protecting your head. The expanded polystyrene liner is breathable and sticks to your head so the helmet doesn't move around, and the PE foam absorbs shock from rockfall. This helmet's innovative Omega headband gives you an ideal fit without getting in your hair's way even if you have it up in a ponytail. And you can attach any of Petzl's headlamps to this helmet for when you end up rappelling off the route after the sunset.
