Helmet-heads call it the safest whitewater helmet in the world. After many years of development, the WhiteWater Head Impact Protection Project has created a helmet that will take a number of hard hits. It features comfort-enhancing ergonomics, a rigid and durable shell, and a superior patented retention system.
- The Multi-Impact shell design consists of an Impact Shell, an EVA foam liner, a polyurethane sub-shell, and another layer of EVA foam.
- Sized Large, to fit larger heads.
Microshell helmets are made of a thin polymer sheet over a foam liner; Hardshell helmets have a hard polymer outer shell and a foam liner; when the liner is being bonded to the outer shell during the manufacturing process, it is Molded in the shell.
|Fit system||Interchangeable foam pads|
|Inner material||Polyurethane + EVA|
Most helmets are tested and certified for a specific sport. Some helmets are approved for multi-sports, but only after passing the safety tests for both sports (i.e., snowsports and cycling).
Cetification is established by a variety of governing bodies who set impact standards. Most helmets are certified or approved for a specific sport, except in the case of multi-sport helmets (i.e., a snowsports helmet might also be approved for cycling if it meets the cycling safety standards).
