Win 1 of 3 Petzl BOREO Helmets

For more than 40 years Petzl has been synonymous in the world of rock climbing, caving and alpinism. Petzl's helmets are renowned for their innovation and cover iconic designs such as the ECRIN ROC, METEOR and the latest SIROCCO

Durable and very versatile, the BOREO helmet is suitable for a wide range of activities including climbing, mountaineering, caving, via ferrata & canyoning.

Thanks to its hybrid construction, the helmet is both compact and gives excellent coverage. Optimized volume on the head and wide ventilation holes make it a comfortable helmet for all activities with a respectable weight of 285-295g.

"With head coverage that comes low at the sides and rear, and an impact absorbing lining right down to the rim, the amount of protection on offer inspires confidence." - Dan Bailey, UKC.
