Salomon MTN Lab Helmet

The alpine is at your fingertips.

An ode to those with an affinity for Type II fun, Salomon's MTN Lab Helmet is an ultra-light lid that's equally at home slaying pow in the Rockies as it is on gnarly ascents in the Alps. Thanks to the hybrid in-mold design, the MTN Lab has a sleek, low-profile look, with EPS 4D technology that helps absorb oblique and vertical impact.

The MTN Lab is equipped with a breathable, moisture-wicking merino wool lining, that stays naturally odor-free even while you're sweating up a storm on an exposed glacier. Active ventilation comes in handy to keep your head cool when you're ripping turns through spring corn, and the custom dial fit system lends itself to instant adjustment in case you need to throw an extra layer on when the mercury drops.

Good BC helmet with minor drawbacks

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

Super light and super comfortable. Good fit and adjustment mechanism. However you can't close the vents and the padding around the back of the head/neck is minimal so on cold days I find myself either putting on a hat or a hood under the helmet for the descent, which is a nuisance.

Unanswered Question

Salomon's website suggests that the new 17/18 MTN Lab helmet comes with a second liner for Summer use. Is this the case? Would you happen to have a photo?

same question as the guy below.. or is the ear flap removable?
