Further Information for Helmets / headwear
Helmets are essential if you are planning on kayaking on any moving water whether it is on rivers or surfing, or if you are in open canoes on anything more than slow gentle moving water.
Helmets come either sized or adjustable with a strap or cradle to ensure a good fit.
Some will have better protection than others depending on the design and the fit. All the helmets we sell are approved to the relevant CE standrds.
A Good Fit should mean the helmet cannot be moved easily when you shake your head or knock the helmet but not so tight as to give you a headache. Your forehead should be protected to just above your eyebrows.
Some helmets are supplied with foam which can be fitted to create a snug fit. We offer a no quibble replacement service on all unused products if the size is incorrect for you. If you find the helmet does not fit please return it and get the correct head protection you deserve.
