Rocker Full Face Kayak Helmet
|Sweet Protection Rocker Full Face Whitewater Kayak Helmet - The Rocker Fullface helmet from Sweet boosts your confidence when facing the challenges of life. This full coverage helmet offers the most extensive protection available. The TLC outer shell combines the elasticity of injection-molded thermoplastic with the rigidity and strength of carbon fiber, enabling Sweet to fine-tune the shell for optimum performance. An ABS inner shell with CRP technology reinforcements offers great durability and additional impact protection. The molded EPP padding with EVA reinforcements provides very durable shock-absorbing properties while remaining light weight. A low profile composite jaw guard helps keep your teeth where you'd like them, and the unique construction flexes under load, reducing the forces applied to the neck. An included fit kit and adjustable straps allow you to customize the fit, and the neck-hugging OCCIGRIP no-roll tensioning system keeps everything solidly in place. The adjustable visor keeps splash & sun out of your eyes, while the CoolMax liner lets you charge full speed. The Sweet Protection Rocker Fullface helmet is the ultimate in whitewater protection.
Sizing for Sweet Protection Rocker Full Face Whitewater Kayak Helmet:
My experience with the Sweet Rocker is that it was very easy to get an excellent fit, it is very lightweight, and the protection is about as good as it gets. I have taken a few very hard shots with it and barely felt like my bell was rung.
Just recently purchased a Sweet Fullface Rocker. I know the price is higher than some, but still less expensive than paying a dentist to replace your grill when you bust it on a rock. I REALLY like this helmet. It's super light, and view is not obstructed at all. Best of all, Sweet IMHO offers one of the best whitewater helmets on the market. The quality reflects in their products, and I think it's the best looking full face helmet going! Who cares what you look like paddling the river as long as your having fun doing so. I may look silly to some wearing a full face helmet, but I know I will be leaving the river with all the teeth I came with.
Best used for serious creeking. This helmet is pricey, but there are no do-overs if you take a hard shot to your head. I've hit my head a few times with this helmet and it is the first helmet that I have had that really defuses the impact. No lingering headaches. It fits low on the back of your head which is a nice feature. An unexpected bonus was how warm this helmet is - great for winter boating. The one downside is that it only comes in 2 sizes. That makes it hard for people with small heads (women) to outfit this helmet. The only real adjustment is a few pads so measure your head before you buy this helmet and get the right size. Also, figure in the size of your skull cap, or beanie if you wear one for winter boating. There is some removable lining that approximates that thickness of a winter skull cap so it evens out. I would highly recommend this helmet.
After waiting months for the Rocker Full Face to become available I was so excited to finally get mine, only to have to return it a couple of days later. These helmets are without a doubt the Rolls Royce of helmets, bomb proof and super good looking. However, after a couple of evenings wearing the L/XL at the house I developed a splitting headache and had to get that bad boy off. Even though the size chart says my 7 1/4” noggin should fit the L/XL, there was no way I could spend a day on the river with that discomfort. So IMHO be advised these helmets run small. My rating is based only on fit, not quality. Also very pleased with Outdoorplay.
