Climbing hard hat


In addition to the one-way moisture transfer wicking fabric and breathable 3D mesh that ease fast sweat evaporation, the Fibre Metal Type II climbing-style helmet incorporates liquid crystal polymer yarn into the six-point suspension strap system to disperse force transferred from the shell to the user. The helmet also leverages non-Newtonian foam in combination with a traditional EPS foam liner. In case of a significant impact, the molecules in this proprietary material bond together to form a firm surface that provides an optimized balance of force mitigation and weight-impact minimization.
