Safety with a secure fit.
When you're going out for a paddle, it's smart to protect your dome in case you come into contact with rocks. Pull on the Shred Ready Standard Half-Cut Helmet. A combination of the ABS injection molded shell and the multi-impact molded EPP liner helps take the smack out of injuries in rocky rivers. This helmet comes with multiple closed-cell foam pads that you can insert inside the helmet for an ideal fit, making one size fit any head comfortably. You can also cinch the HOG2.0 Retention System at the back the helmet for a more secure fit that will keep the helmet in place no matter how rowdy the river is, and the nylon chin strap connects to four points to ensure the snuggest fit possible. Shred Ready made the rivets and burrs out of stainless steel to prevent corrosion so you can stay safe in this helmet for a long time.

This helmet is pretty freaking sweet. I was hesitant about the universal sizing at first because I have a small head but these things are super adjustable. They come with three different sizes of foam inserts for both the front and the back of the helmet so it's very customizable and there's an additional tightening mechanism in the back for you to synch down every time you put it on.
The front peak is a bit short so it doesn't provide the greatest sun protection but since the helmet itself is so adjustable it's easy to size it over a hat to give your face some shade.
Another thing about this helmet is that it provides full protection of your head, going from the middle of your forehead, all the way down the back of your skull where it meets the neck without any gaps. This is awesome for your cerebellum and temporal lobe but a note for people with longer hair: it does limit the number of comfortable ponytail options that you can pull off while wearing the Half-Cut. For me, though, the level of protection and the sweet color options make up for it.
