Rock Lite Helmet
A superlight, strong, EPS helmet designed for rock climbing, the Rock Lite comes in two stylish colours. Easy to fit and well vented, it has a simple ‘Quik-Dial’ adjustment system and sits perfectly on the head on Coolmax covered EVA pads. ‘Future proofed’, the Rock Lite can be fitted with ‘The Shield’ for winter use too.
Wild Country’s research into head protection for climbers and mountaineers instantly revealed some major limitations in existing helmet designs - limitations which we addressed with the Alpine Shield and 360 models. However, at the behest of our extreme athletes we wanted to create another model, a model that fitted their brief; for a helmet that would go with them on those truly special journeys, on those big days out and for those days when the extreme routes come with extreme risk.
Brilliantly simple and simply brilliant the Rock Lite is a close fitting, superlight performance helmet. Well vented and fully featured it is made to perform in the most demanding of circumstances with out disturbing the ability of those using it.
The essence of the new Rock Lite is as a pared down rock climbers helmet that hits the market at an impressively light weight. With a pedigree borne of our research and development from last year’s hot model, the Alpine Shield, it’s stylish and strong and aimed at those with a pure rock agenda who want to climb clean, light and clear. From this brief the Rock Lite is a slimline in-mould EPS model, perfect for all round cragging, which has an optimal fit via quick-click volume adjustment. Well vented for summer, abroad or at home, it sits superbly on soft EVA pads with a Coolmax covering keeping it cool even in the tightest spots helped by a super secure, quick release chin strap.
Nothing is left out, for example the headtorch fittings are simple to use and very effective and, if you do end up in harsher climates they're made of acetal which performs perfectly in low temperatures.
EXCLUSIVE - as a bonus feature the Rock Lite exclusively retains the three screw fittings that would allow for placement of ‘The Shield’ polycarbonate cover as used on the Alpine Shield helmet – and with the enhanced stonefall protection The Shield gives, the horizons widen for you and your helmet, meaning if your agenda changes, your helmet can too. A hyperlight helmet that provides perfect protection, the Rock Lite will help you keep a cool head while all about you are losing theirs.
