Petzl Vertex Vent Helmet


The comfortable and versatile Vertex Vent helmet from Petzl guarantees a secure fit with six-point textile suspension and Centerfit and Flip&fit systems. Other innovative and useful features like the adjustable-strength chinstrap make the Vertex Vent great for ground work and aerial work alike. Compatible with Petzl headlamps, hearing protection and other helmet-mounted accessories, the Vertex Vent provides all the functionality a professional climber could need.


Petzl’s professional-grade Vertex Vent makes a phenomenal addition to any climber’s kit bag. Six-point textile suspension, Centerfit and Flip&fit systems contribute to the great comfort and superb protection. Vertex Vent offers unprecedented adjustability. The adjustable-strength chinstrap allows for easy transition between ground work and work at height, while the sliding shutters behind the ventilation holes make Vertex Vent perfect for use at any height in any weather conditions.

That’s not all, though. As you’d expect from Petzl, Vertex Vent has been designed from the ground up to include every feature a professional climber needs:

  • Six-point textile suspension conforms perfectly to the shape of the head
  • Centerfit feature allows perfect centring of the helmet on the head, thanks to its two side adjustment wheels
  • Flip&fit system allows the headband to be positioned in a low position, guaranteeing that the helmet fits securely on the head. The system folds into the shell for easy storage and transportation
  • Comes with interchangeable standard comfort foam
  • Protection designed for work at height and on the ground
  • Dual chinstrap allows the worker to adjust chinstrap strength in order to adapt the helmet to different environments: work at height (EN 12492) or on the ground (EN 397). The clip has two positions, corresponding to these two uses: high strength, limiting the risk of losing the helmet during a fall, and low strength, limiting the risk of strangulation if the helmet is snagged while the user is on the ground
  • Shock absorption achieved through deformation of the outer shell
  • Vent holes with sliding shutters allow the ventilation to be adjusted as needed while wearing the helmet
  • Eye shield with easyclip side attachment system for easy installation
  • Petzl headlamp with mounts, or headlamp with elastic headband
  • Helmet protector keeps the shell free from soiling and paint splash
  • Nape protector provides effective sun and rain protection for the nape of the neck
  • Nametag holder allows user to be easily identified
  • Changeable chinstrap and foam
  • Hearing protection
  • Available in seven colours: white, yellow, red, black, orange, blue and green
  • Also comes in two high-visibility versions: yellow and orange


  • Materials: ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), nylon, polycarbonate, high-strength polyester, polyethylene
  • Weight: 490g
