|Jake Hirschi declaring his love on Pitch 3 of Betty's Altered Elbow 5.9. Little Cottonwood Canyon, Utah|
Unlike my past helmets, the salamander offers full coverage and is made from a thick ABS plastic that is EXTREMELY durable. I've found I worry less and relax more which helps when I'm 20 feet out from my last bolt and my legs are quivering while making the last move to the chickenhead where I can finally clip the next bolt.
It's also lightweight: 358 grams and inexpensive $82.50. Grivel Salamander
I'm guessing that after my wife reads this I'll be wearing the helmet in the basement tonight...
