Petzl Vertex 2 Vent Discontinued

Postby Lava » Oct 1, 2014 11:00 am

According to the Karst Sports website, the Petzl Vertex 2 Vent helmet is being discontinued:

I'm in the market for a new helmet, really liked my old Ecrin Roc, and dislike how the Vertex looks. Now that the Vertex 2 is cancelled, I feel like I should wait and see if anything replaces it. Does anybody know if Petzl has plans to replace the Vertex 2 with a new helmet?

I really hope Petzl has something in the works that's better than the Vertex. The Ecrin Roc had really become the iconic caver helmet and nothing in their current lineup is a worthy replacement for it.

Got a reply from Karst Sports today:

"The vertex series of helmets is currently in its 3rd revision. There is a 4th revision coming out in early 2015."
