  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So I've been using this brain bucket for over a year now and honestly I love it even more than when I first got it. I've thought about getting a Sweet helmet but in the future may have to stick with SR. A few of the white decals have since flaked partially off and this thing shows scratches like its proud of them but mechanically it is totally intact. Yesterday was the first time I hit a rock hard enough to rattle my teeth and I was surprised at how well the impact was absorbed. I never need to wear it backwards for play boating (some have said it obstructs your view) and the only thing that would really make it better is if it had holes on the top to drain faster when creeking (maybe it would decrease strength though).
All in all- one year of abuse and I still like it.

Huge step up from my old protec.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I haven't put a ton of river mileage in this yet but will update when I do. I sit between a M and L in cycling helmets and fit better in Giro and Cannondale rather than Bell. This lids fits great with the different inserts. It does squeeze my forehead a bit more than on the sides but not enough for me to notice will on the water (this may get better as the pads mold and flatten a bit). I mostly playboat but go down river on occasion. The glass and shredlar is super light yet confidence-inspiringly rock solid which I can't say for the ABS lids I've used. The coverage is unsurpassed by other non-fullface lids. The coverage on the back, sides and front protect your low occiput almost all the way to your neck (but it doesn't touch your neck or shoulders) it covers your ears and a good portion of your face for those unintentional depth checks of rock gardens. The visor keeps the sun off most of my face but isn't so long that it impedes vision. I've never used it backwards on the river just because I like the sun protection and have never noticed it blocking my view. If you can try it on first but I definitely recommend it.
