Looking for a heavy, heat-retaining helmet? Neither were we. That's why Cotswold stock the Elios helmet.

An ABS shell and foam liner offer excellent impact protection for climbing, mountaineering, caving, canyoning, via ferrata, canyoning, etc.

A great range of easy-to-operate adjustment allows the Elios to fit a wide variety of head shapes, as well as altering to fit you as you move from summer cragging to wearing it over a hat for Scottish winter routes. Also making for great adaptability is the sliding vent system: open it for ventilation, close it up to keep out icy draughts. Absorbent, washable lining fabric ramps up the comfort even further, while four integrated clips retain your headtorch straps during early Alpine starts.

Great value for money
Reviewed By Rhona, 20 Jul 2013

I expected to be paying more than £55 for this piece of kit so that was a very pleasant surprise at the till!

This is a great fitting helmet, the new system works very well, and very comfortable for wearing.

I haven't had any knocks with it but I'm sure it would hold up as expected. Fingers crossed, I never need to find out!



Great helmet, love the vents

For £55 you're not, realistically, going to find a better helmet. The vents are a great feature as we all like climbing more in hot weather



Affordable and does the job

A well priced hale met that fits well. No problems with the helmet at all.



Excellent piece of kit
Reviewed By Alex, 07 Apr 2012

Bought this helmet as i lost my beloved ecrin rock and to be be honest my experience of the previous elios didnt give me much faith in this model. However i have to say its brilliant, exceptionally comfortable to wear for extended periods and it fits great. The new adjustment system makes it ery easy to change the fit one handed and the flip up vents are fantastic for keeping the wind out when belaying and keeping your head cool whilst climbing. Definitely worth investing in.



Great protection for winter climbing and cragging.

Lightweight and lots of ventilation. Good protection from falling ice and rocks. May be a bit too hot for summer cragging, but it is fine for everything.
