The ultimate whitewater helmet.

When you’re charging through rapids, you need to be focused on manoeuvring yourself around protruding rocks, not worrying about busting your head open in the event of a capsize. With the Sweet Protection Rocker Half-Cut Kayak Helmet, you’ll crash through whitewater with confidence.

This helmet leads the industry in head protection, comfort, and features. Carbon-fibre reinforced impact protection ensures that your head is as safe as possible while you paddle on shallow or rocky rivers. A removable visor blocks the sun from your eyes, improving your ability to spot upcoming eddies. Fully removable soft earpads warm your ears in cold conditions and provide protection to your inner eardrums in the event of a quick capsize. This is the number one choice for professional kayakers and serious enthusiasts that demand maximum safety and comfort on the water. If you are looking for the very best, look no further.

  • Visor: Adjustable height, fully removable, and shatterproof sun visor that helps to direct water away from your face.

Measuring Your Head

To find the right size for you, wrap a measuring tape around the head, just above the ears and level front to back to find your circumference.

Once you have your measurement, you can use the chart beneath as a guide to find your size.

Keep in mind that all Sweet Protection helmets have adjustment systems and are delivered with fit pads to ensure the perfect fit.
