Have used for SUP on Class II WW so far. I think it would provide good protection. The shape of the helmet is more rounded than my head. I squeezed it with an NRS strap across the ears for several hours and improved the fit. I am concerned that with the style of padding this helmet used it could get hot with a lot of sun, but so far OK.

I use this helmet for windsurfing and kiteboarding. After two weeks the rivets started to rust!! The xs is too small for me so I had to put in some neoprene pads for a better fit.

Not true to size.

By River Rat Ryan

from Nevada

Comments about NRS Chaos Helmet - Side Cut:

My head measures 55.5 cm. The med. was too small, the large was way too big. It looks like the helmet size changes between medium and large while only the padding thickness changes between the other sizes. Despite being at the small side of the med. it was still too small.

        Q:

        Are all sizes using the same shell? I will be ordering an XS, but do not want the same shell as used for XL.

          Nicki, the shells on the different sizes are different.

          A:

          I'm not really sure, but I think the shell on my XL helmet would have to be bigger than the XS. I have a big head. But, I'm no authority on helmets. I sell beer for a living.

          A:

          I do not see an official weight listed within the specs. It's not very heavy
          at all. It isn't anything you'll be thinking about while wearing. Good
          product.
