Where to Buy
The Meteor III+ was previously known as the Petzl Meteor III until 2011.
Weighing only 235 grams, the Meteor III + sets the standard in terms of lightness and comfort. It is also one of our most ventilated models. Its innovative adjustment system allows each climber to adjust his/her helmet to head shape. Originally designed for climbing and mountaineering, the METEOR III + also meets European standards for cycling and whitewater sports.
Here's what other sites are saying:
At a mere 235 g, the one-size-fits-all Petzl Meteor III helmet is one of the lightest on the market. The innovative adjustment system means almost anyone can get a comfortable fit. With excellent ventilation, it's equally at home at the local crags as it is on long alpine routes.
Petzl removed every bit of unnecessary material from the Meteor III + Climbing Helmet to keep it as light as possible. Part of that minimalism involved adding a whole bunch of ventilation so this helmet breathes nearly as well as if you were wearing nothing at all and gives you no excuse to leave it behind on any rock climb.
