All about this product



When it comes to unwavering protection, the Capitan MIPS helmet stands as Black Diamond's ultimate fortress. Engineered with uncompromising durability, this helmet offers extended coverage on all sides, incorporating advanced MIPS technology for a level of safety that doesn't sacrifice comfort. This ingenious system is tailored to defend against rotational motion transmitted to the brain during angled impacts. Scientifically proven to absorb and redirect oblique impacts, MIPS technology safeguards your head against the unexpected.


The Capitan MIPS is a masterpiece of construction. Its 2-piece ABS shell is built for resilience, while the fusion of EPP foam and an EPS foam puck adds an extra layer of security. Meeting the proposed UIAA increased side and back protection requirements, this helmet ensures your safety is never compromised. The sleek cradle fit ensures all-day comfort, while the low-profile suspension system lets you dial in the perfect fit. Integrated headlamp clips with an elastic keeper on the back make sure your light stays put, even during the darkest hours. Make safety your top priority, and let nothing hold you back from conquering new heights, day or night.
