Capitan is designed speacially for multi-pitch climbers where the wight and comfort of their equipment are really crucial for optimal endurance on the wall
Most of these long routes require more than a single day to complete the ascend and this force the climbing team to climb during the night making the route even harder.
With the front and back views, we can study in a more detailed way each of the elements that make up the helmet in the rear view I was able to design several varieties of the on/off of the headlamp. While in the front I could play with the morphology and type of frontal light that most suited the dimensions.

The operation of the helmet is as follows: The hull is composed of a thin and flexible sheet of graphene located around the entire surface. This sheet of graphene allows you to store solar energy thanks to its internal battery system. When the climber wishes, he can activate the switch located on the back of the helmet and be able to illuminate his route without having to adapt a flashlight in his helmet.
The graphene membrane allows absorbing the sun's rays. To protect it from external impacts it has a thick layer of polycarbonate
The helmet is formed only by an ultra-compact cork case made of impact-resistant natural cork In this way, leaving the cork exposed freely, we achieve greater transpiration of the climber's head, not only by the multitude of holes incorporated along its surface but also by the absorption power that the cork offers.
The button, located on the back of the helmet allows the climber to operate it in an easy and intuitive way. The objective is to minimize the effort that a climber must make when hanging on the wall and he has to free one hand from it to perform the ignition movement of the lantern. This way the hand is behind the head and not in front, where there could be a risk of touching some unwanted element of the equipment.
The ABS case has holes for heat evacuation. To prevent the entry of dust there is a double layer of ABS under the main one.
The torch incorporates 24 high luminescence LEDs for the correct illumination of the line.
