Petzl logo, 42 kb
Petzl's latest designs reflect over 30 years of helmet development and innovation including the iconic ECRIN ROC, METEOR and the original ultra-lightweight SIROCCO. Comfortable, simple to adjust and lightweight, Petzl helmets play an essential role as safety equipment for vertical activities.

The re-designed SIROCCO has been developed to respond to the needs of climbers and mountaineers for reduced weight and for increased protection. Its new head-covering shape, lower in the rear, offers reinforced protection. Optimized volume on the head, along with excellent ventilation, provide maximum comfort.
