    What came first, the chicken or the egg? Or in the case of climbing, what comes first, moving your body or using your brain? Well, since we don't have the answer to that age-old question, the folks over at Mammut crafted up a temporary answer (so to speak): we're talking about the Wall Rider Climbing Helmet. Built specifically for climbers who desire safety, but without the cumbersome shark-fin look, this innovative helmet is crafted with an ultra-lightweight hybrid construction that utilizes an EPP mold and plastic hard shell combination that provides paramount impact-protection. Not to mention, the Wall Rider is equipped with a minimalist adjustment system and a number of ventilation openings that are bound to keep you cool, even when you feel like you're going to lose your cool while a headlamp specific elastic keeps your light secured safely to the helmet.

    Solid protection

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The main reason I love this helmet is how lightweight it is, while still feeling sturdy and having all the features you want out of a helmet. I wore it down in Moab is some direct sunlight and it the helmet didn't make my head overheat either.

    Awesome Canyon Helmet Too!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I used this helmet for rappelling in Oregon the other day and loved it! The fit is really nice and snug, not to mention comfortable. The venting is beyond fantastic, so it's perfect for climbing or rappelling in the desert! One sneaky feature I like about this helmet, is the lip on the front. It sends water shooting out instead of down!

    What Helmet??

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Such a great protection piece to add to the collection! Extremely light weight with solid ventilation for those real warm days. I like how they left a full piece on top of the noggin and kept the foam in the back, making sure you're getting the protection but still being light weight. It did take a minute to find the perfect fit with the straps, though been perfect since the first time around.

    Forget it’s even there

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Awesome helmet. Super light and comfy. Honestly keep forgetting I have it on.
    Takes a couple of mins to get the straps sized right (and I think Mammut could have done a slightly better job here) — but why am I complaining? Took me 4 mins (vs 2 ideally) — but only had to do it once... Get it.

    Awesome! Thanks for the beta Hezy! Definitely love how lightweight this helmet is!

    Peace of mind on the climb.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My mom would kill me if I didn't wear a helmet while climbing. So I used the Mammut Wall Rider for a light and protected climb. I enjoyed having the head lamp clips when we were still cleaning up our route in the dark. For it's size, the helmet is pretty light. Easy to on your head and forget it's there. You'll hardly notice it's deep in your backpack when you hike out. This helmet is high quality in comfort and safety. It's hard to say much else, I haven't gotten conked by gravity yet, but if I do I'll let you know how the helmet held up.

    Protect your noggin

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After using the BD Half Dome for a few years this helmet was a huge step up for me in comfort, fit, and style. I have a pretty small head so I went with the smaller size, 52-57. With foam inserts of different thickness' I was able to dial in the fit perfectly. The helmet barely feels like it is there, it covers a greater surface area of my cranium than the Half Dome, and the adjustable straps make the fit consistent every time I put it on. I hesitated to spend more on a climbing helmet but I am very happy that I did. As somebody who spends hours in a helmet on SAR calls the comfort and light weight is well worth it.

    Michael, thanks so much for taking the time to write this review! Super pumped you like the helmet!

    It’s like it’s not even there

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love this climbing helmet. Easy to adjust, extremely light, and very comfortable.

    I wore this for a couple straight hours of multipitch climbing and completely forgot it was there. It’s that comfortable! Not to mention light weight!

    This helmet also breathed very well in hot conditions, yet has enough space to wear a hat underneath for cooler conditions.

    Ultra Comfortable Helmet!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I have a huge head, a ton of hair, and like to wear a hat when I am climbing. Somehow this helmet holds it all and remains very comfortable. It is so lightweight that you really will forget you have it on until that bit of choss comes down.

    Ultra Comfortable Helmet!

    Better than Expected

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Comfy, can fit a hat underneath easily, great ventilation. I was very worried about the all webbing fit design. It turned out to be the reason I kept it over all others. I had issues with the plastic adjustment pieces on other helmets but the webbing on the wall rider is just oh SO COMFY. Also the weight is amazing. You feel like you are wearing nothing at all. I have taken some small impacts such as bumping my head on a roof and it absorbed it well unlike other helmets I tried. Great ventilation means less sweating. This helmet is the same or greater quality than helmets with a price tag of $40 more. Get this! You won't regret it!

    EPP Core

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    It's light, looks good, and has a small visor. All great stuff.

    The key differentiator for me is the EPP core. The fact that this helmet will not become obsolete after one impact like all other helmets on the market (except the Petzl Sirocco, which is significantly more expensive) makes it a no-brainer in my opinion. Very happy with my purchase.

    So comfy!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Amazing helmet. I was a little worried about the fitting with only webbing to adjust, but it fit like a charm. I have never worn a helmet so comfortable. I've used it with and without a trucker hat underneath without any problems. Initial adjustment takes a bit but after no worries! Amazing to have such lightweight protection for a midlevel price. I would 10/10 recommend. You can finally be the person that is always being safe and wearing your helmet not because your that one safety guy but because you forget it is there. (Notice the large is not really large. It runs a bit small)

    hardly notice it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This helmet is awesome! It's super lightweight and easily adjustable. Everytime I go climb with a few friends, their helmets are off and on constantly. I put mine on and basically forget about it, it's that comfortable. and it can be adjusted so easy, I have traded it with my girlfriend between climbs and neither of us had complaints swithching between sizes. Not to mention, I have gotten a few compliments on the color way, so that's always nice too.

    Ultralight great for all day climving

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I find myself going to the wall and hiking in first thing in the morning and leaving late in the afternoon only removing my helmet when I get to my car. The wall rider is super light and doesn't move around on your head but it also doesn't feel like it's going to split apart with the first big impact. I have about 20 days on this helmet so far and would definitely recommend it to anyone that's going on longer climbs/trips and wants all day comfort

    Get a Petzl Sirocco Instead

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Took this on an 8 month South American climbing trip. It's light, good looking, comfortable, visor, headlamp compatible, sheds icefall well, etc. Pretty much all I need in a helmet, with the exception of a pretty serious design flaw.

    It was strapped to my backpack on a slippery alpine descent, and I fell and it broke along the plastic/EPP foam transition when I slipped. It's a pretty prominent point of weakness that doesn't exist in a side by side comparison with the Petzl Sirocco (and it's a few bucks cheaper). Along each of the three struts on half the helmet!

    As a mechanical engineer, I notice that this design could be improved by increasing the bend radii for strain relief, or just increasing the cross sectional area along the fracture line. What a bummer on an otherwise great helmet. Hope it's addressed in future revisions, or my next will be a Sirocco (despite how ugly they are, they've also got a 3 year guarantee that Mammut doesn't have, as well as being a few bucks cheaper)

    Whatever, i'm gonna put some GOOP on it and keep the tape fix, as it'll still shed impacts from above. I'm just a little disappointed in the engineering!

    Honest question, do you think the helmet would break the exact same way if someones head were inside of it? Since the forces exerted on the helmet would be different in each scenario.

    While I don't know if it would fail in that exact same way, I could see scenarios where this point of failure could be pretty nasty, such as something falling and smushing your helmet/brain against a rock or wall. I'm still climbing with my repaired helmet, so clearly am not too concerned. Just throwing it out there for others consideration.

    Better than the rest, BUT WITH A VISOR!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Petzl helmet is ugly. Get over it people. This one looks way better.
    BD helmet is too much $$$. This one isnt.
    Get it.

    Light is Right

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a lot of helmets, and this is by far my favorite because it's so light and minimalistic. I also really like the strapping system--the straps are soft, thin and easy to adjust with small pull-buckles. For me, the lighter and smaller the better with helmets, and this is hands down the most least I've ever had :)

    Light and Durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Use this for ice and rock climbing, don't even notice it's there! Wish they had a more female-specific fit around the pony-tail area in the back - but it sits pretty high up on the back of the head. The slight visor/brim is great for sunny days also.

    Does this helmet work well with beanies for colder temperatures?

    Put it on and forget about it

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'll be honest I never thought I would be wearing a helmet Sport Climbing but since I have started climbing in the Wall Rider I can't think of a reason not to. It is low profile, light weight, and very breathable. I have found myself on numerous occasions forgetting that I am even wearing it. I've used it Trad climbing, Alpine Climbing, and yes even sport craggin. Love it.

    Put it on and forget about it

    Sensible Saftey

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This helmet is extraordinarily light weight, stylish and overall a great product from an even better manufacturer. It was my first helmet and quite possibly the only helmet I'll need for sometime. It's proven it's self quite durable from being hauled around in the car from crag to crag and on the pack its withstood some abuse. Great ventilation and sits on the head extremely well, low profile, overall a great product!

    Give yourself a reason to wear a helmet!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My previous helmet was a bit heavy, and a bit awkward.

    This helmet is extraordinarily comfortable - it sits much lower on my head (think bucket) - and by this, it is much more low profile and visually conforming.

    I have a slightly larger dome and got the larger size
    (56-61cm) - and it fits perfectly - but there are tons of options to dial in the fit. The helmet includes extra foam inserts (12mm or 7mm) and the straps adjust by a decent amount to allow for all head and neck sizes. I was able to get mine to sit perfectly within 2 minutes.

    It's also insanely lightweight. It honestly doesn't even feel like you are wearing anything on your head. I always rock a visor underneath my helmets, and at 200 grams (0.44 lbs!) this thing feels like air. The design includes a plastic top, and an EPP back and side - seems to be the perfect hybrid for protecting rockfall from above.

    I have also used it as a ski helmet for touring a few times this spring - just rocked a beanie underneath - and it's great for that as well.
