/ Climbing Technology - Stark Helmet
I have bought a Climbing Technology Stark helmet recently from a Store and want to know if it is worth keeping. I've searched online to see reviews and am not sure if it's a good helmet! I don't want to have wasted my time buying this helmet only for it to have some problem or other.
So what I am wondering is, does anyone on ukclimbing.com also own this seemingly unknown helmet and if so, is there any problems or is it fine?
Please could you try and post in the correct forum, it makes life easier for both users and moderators.

There's nothing wrong with my helmet......... though I can't remember granting naming rights to CT.
PS Climbing technology are totally reputable and not an entirely unknown brand
Climbing Technology are a very reputable company who are big in Italy and Germany amongst other places. They have just started distributing their gear in the UK which is why you may not have heard of them.
just googled it and it is does have CE, UIAA and EN registrations and is sold by many reputable dealers. I wouldn't worry about whether it works unless you've seen some specific recall issues.
fwiw, I bought some of their crampons last year as a 2nd pair of simple mountaineering crampons - very good, well built and very reasonably priced.
im pretty sure joe brown wouldnt stock them if they were shite.
Are falling potatoes a hazzard where you climb?
However I'm happy with the helmet now.
No that's right, they can't sell PPE thats been returned.
And CT usually do great gear IMO, got one of the click up devices from Joe Browns and it's great, they are a fairly reputable company.
I don't know about re-selling but you can certainly return climbing helmets, have done so earlier this year with no problem. I think climbing gear manufacturers / shops (esp online ones) would struggle otherwise as very little would be returnable.
I've got a recently bought a stark because it was comforable and passed all its safety ratings so I don't see why you would return it...
