WRSI Brand Profile:
Whitewater Research and Safety Institute was started from a deep commitment to provide paddlers with better safety gear, and the company has never wavered from its goal. In its efforts to develop a safer whitewater helmet, WRSI worked with researchers and engineers at Johns Hopkins University, and the result is a helmet that puts the best safety technology available on the heads of boaters. Their latest line of better fitting, more comfortable helmets has improved outfitting and expanded the size range to make WRSI technology accessible to nearly every paddler while remaining true to the mission of keeping the price of protection affordable. WRSI kayak helmets feature the best lightweight, high-impact material available to effectively dissipate impacts. Whitewater kayakers will benefit from the interconnected straps that securely hold the helmet in place under hydraulic forces and an O-brace harness that conforms to the back of the head. A plush, breathable liner provides a comfortable fit every time. When it comes to safety on the water, choose a company whose mission is to empower adventure sports athletes to safely pursue their passions — you’ll find no better kayak helmet on the market.
