This helmet is snug and fits securely but is still very comfortable. I ordered the right size according to my measurements and the first couple times wearing it I got a bit of a tension headache. I guess I 'broke it in' as that is no longer an issue. I highly recommend the occigrip. My previous helmet did't have it. The visor caught on a rock while I was upside down, and managed to slip, exposing my forehead which then banged across some rocks. Not great. I haven't had any slippage with the Rocker. CKS shipped fast and had the best price around. Do it!
Buying the Sweet Protection Rocker
The first helmet was not the same size as what was on the box. I sent it back and they replaced it with the correct helmet in the correct box. They covered the shipping for the return item. I am happy with the helmet and they done right in the end.
This is a replacement for a sweet that I’ve used for 4 years. Believe me I’ve hit many rocks with this helmet it has never let me down.
Saved my skull
A few months back I took a particularly bad landing on a local waterfall drop, landed directly on my head after pitoning and tumbling forward, the top of my head made direct contact with a shale shelf and the helmet was pretty seriously damaged, GoPro gone, and the outer shell of the helmet cracked a giant home out. I got off the river with a couple broken bones and herniated disks, but no concussion. I’m fairly convinced that this helmet actually saved my life that day. Incidentally, if you total a helmet within two years of purchase, Sweet will replace it at a substantial discount. Sadly for me I was three years into mine when this happened. At this point I’ve got three Sweets in rotation (Strutter and two Rocker styles) and my first Sweet helmet from 2014 is still in service elsewhere, a Wanderer. You just can’t go wrong with this brand.
