WRSI Current Kayak Helmet - The Current helmet is on the leading edge of development. The result of intense research work by WRSI and Johns Hopkins, it is a superior multi-impact helmet for use in a water environment. It features a four-layer multiple impact shell design for maximum absorption and dispersion of collisions. The O Brace retention system locks the helmet firmly in place on your head, preventing the helmet from rolling back and exposing the forehead.
