The Sweet Rocker Halfcut is the helmet of choice for many of the worlds best paddlers. Constructed using Thermoplastic Laminated Carbon (TLC) shell technology, the helmet is constructed with the ideal stiffness in different areas. The top is softer, while the back and sides are more rigid, which has been shown to be the most efficient in absorbing impacts. The Occi-Grip tensioning system and Coolmax liner make this one of the most comfortable helmets on the market. Also included is a shatter-proof visor and ear pads.

My head measurement is 275 mm. Tried medium. Way too small. Returned for Large. Just right. No need for any shims. Solid contact, formidable design. My old WRSI feels like a shoebox on my head in comparison. Spend the money. You won’t be disappointed.
I very confortable, and better construction that a similar NRS helmet. Disregarding ear pads, (which can be purchased separately), the big difference with the Wanderer helmet is the structure and composition that the rocker has in the upper part of the helmet, which makes it better when it absorbe impacts in that part of the helmet. About the visor: If you want you can remove the visor, I did this because sometimes I would touch it when paddling. It can also be hooked on a branch or rock. But that is for opinions and depends where or how you are paddling. About the size: I measured my head size and it was between the two sizes. I chose the M / L and I got a little tight, but fine. In my opinion and without having tried the size L / XL, I think that this size would be mine. The ideal is to try it or ask the seller to advise you. On the other hand, if you are going to paddle with a neoprene hat in winter and you are like me between the two sizes, I would take one size more.
Had mine for years still going good!!!
