Shred Ready T Dub review by Atom Crawford

The SR TDUB is one heck of a cool looking helmet. I originally bought this helmet based on style alone. I figured if some of the worlds best “heavy hitters” were wearing it, then it had to be for me. The TDub crew (Daniel DeLaVergne, Tommy Hilike, Pat Keller & John Grace) wanted more coverage for the Shaggy, so the TDUB was born. The TDUB added 3/4in around the edge to the Shaggy helmet for added protection and coverage. The TDUB combined stylish looks with superior coverage. As I modeled the helmet in my bathroom mirror, I instantly felt connected to the TDUB crew. I then suddenly realized that pat Keller wasn’t even born when I first started kayaking. Regardless, the helmet fit great, provided awesome coverage and made me feel a little bit younger.

More T Dub porn. Daniel D running something really big.

Cons:

  • Takes a little while to dial in the HOG system
  • The LVM crew were wearing them, and they still didn’t sack up for the Embudo Race. I was crushed….(maybe they were to busy t-dubing it to race)

The Verdict:

  • The TDUB is kinda like coffee in the morning, you need it to get the day rolling.
  • The TDUB makes you look cool, even while portaging.
  • The TDUB keeps the sun out of your eyes while dropping in.
  • The TDUB can and will protect your noggin if you are getting throttled.
  • The TDUB is “smokin” hot.
  • Shred Ready will donate $15 for every TDUB helmet sold to the Green River Access fund in Memory of Daniel DeLaVergne. (How cool is that!)
