VERTEX HELMET

Jake Green

With an adjustable-strength chinstrap, the VERTEX helmet offers optimal protection for the head during operations at height and on the ground. It is very comfortable, thanks to its six-point textile suspension and CENTERFIT and FLIP&FIT systems, which guarantee that the helmet fits securely on the head.

Optimal protection:

  • The DUAL chinstrap has two positions, corresponding to two uses: high strength, limiting the risk of losing the helmet during a fall, and low strength, limiting the risk of strangulation if the helmet is snagged while the user is on the ground
  • Shock absorption achieved through deformation of the outer shell

Very comfortable:

  • Six-point textile suspension conforms perfectly to the shape of the head
  • CENTERFIT feature allows perfect centering of the helmet on the head, thanks to its two side adjustment wheels
  • FLIP&FIT system allows the headband to be positioned in a low position, guaranteeing that the helmet fits securely on the head. The system folds into the shell for easy storage and transportation
  • Comes with interchangeable standard comfort foam

Compatible with:

  • Petzl headlamps, using the mounts (front and rear slots)
  • All headlamps with elastic headband (headlamp clips)

Simple to use, and effective:

  • Moves up or down the rope, without any manual manipulation of the device
  • Easy to install and remove at any point on the rope
  • Connection arm makes the system drop-resistant when passing intermediate anchors
  • Used with an energy absorber to work at a distance from the rope: ASAP’SORBER or
