Sweet Protection Strutter Helmet


Why We Like The Strutter Helmet

The Sweet Protection Strutter Helmet has become iconic in the river-running community—as its blend of protection, comfort, and style sets the standard for all other helmets in its class. LFT shell technology combines nylon and long fiberglass to make the shell super-tough with a great balance of elasticity and rigidity, and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer in the front of the helmet increases impact protection while maintaining a light weight. An EVA liner absorbs impacts without cracking, even in cold temperatures. Occigrip construction makes the helmet easily adjustable to provide a secure, yet comfortable fit that won't shift when you get tumbled in turbulent waters. Comfort pads provide a cushy feel and wick moisture, and the Strutter comes with two pad thicknesses so you can choose the one that's best for you.

I have about 5 ww helmets all in the M or M/L size, but this is my first Strutter. I think I have a fairly normal head shape and fall right in the middle, even towards the smaller side, of the M/L size range. Without any of the extra padding, this helmet is bizarrely narrow and crushes my temples with immense, painful pressure. I read the booklet that came with it and had everything adjusted to be as loose as possible to start the fit process, but just couldn't have the thing on for more than a few moments without getting terrible headaches. In addition to this, the stitching and basic texture of the black cover over the hard foam shell is just not nice on my head. I have a shaved/bald head and it irritates my skin like no other helmet. The black material isn't very soft and the stitching at the edge over my eyebrows is downright painful. All in all, I'm really disappointed in this helmet considering all the great things I've heard about it from others. Maybe I just got an off one, but it's definitely not right for me.
