The new Alveo Vent is Petzl's lightest weight and most ventilated helmet yet. It fits closer to the skull than the Vertex and is therefore more stable and less noticeable. The new Centerfit adjustment system with two adjustment knobs ensures optimal fit and stability by centering the head inside the shell. Compatible with Peltor ear muffs (SAF203 and SAF205) and Peltor wire mesh visor (SAF127) or clear plastic Petzl Vizir (SAF177). Shock absorption is achieved through deformation of the expanded polystyrene liner. Weighs 12 oz. Made in France.

Quick Overview: well-vented, closer fit, compatible with ear muffs & face shield, weighs 12oz.
