Skulls and welding go hand in hand. There’s just something “right” about a welder strapping on a flaming death skull and wielding fire to hook metal together. Miller clearly gets it. They also get that no matter how cool it looks, the functionality needs to be there as well. They achieved both with the Digital Elite series helmets, but they’ve now added more skulls to the lineup with the Wicked model 241462. We approve.
Digital Elite helmets feature a digital control that allows users to set and store their shade, sensitivity, and delay preferences for various applications, like welding, cutting, and grinding. An “X-Mode” provides full protection for those times when there’s an arc present but the sensors are obscured. X-Mode eliminates interference from sunlight and out-of-position welding angles, such as those found in pipe welding.
Basically the helmet keeps your eyes safe and your head looking tight while you go about your metal-melting way. The new 241462 Wicked and the recent 241461 Inferno model will run about $300 apiece after a little hard shopping.
