The NRS Anarchy Helmet takes whitewater safety to a whole new level. Its BOA ratchet retention system and revolutionary ConeHead™ liner provide a level of protection conventional designs can't match.
  • A BOA dial retention system snugs the helmet to your head to prevent shifting in turbulent water.
  • ConeHead technology spreads impact energy across a larger area, resulting in a lower, safer g-force than with other helmet liner systems.
  • The ConeHead liner consists of two layers of foam, a higher density outer layer and a lower density inner layer. Cone-shaped projections mesh the layers together.
  • As an impact compresses the layers, the cones spread the energy sideways, dissipating the g-forces.
  • The ventilated shell helps with cooling and reduces the effects of water forces.
  • Keep the removable ear pads in place for extra protection, or easily remove them for improved hearing.
  • Hook-and-loop EVA foam fit pads let you customize the helmet to your head shape.
  • An adjustable chin strap with four-point attachment helps hold the helmet in place.
  • Meets CE EN 1385 certification.

      A:

      It must way less than a pound, because none of my scales will even pick it up. It's very lightweight on the head, feels like my high dollar specialized road bike helmet.

    Q:

    The helmet comes with three sets of Quarter-sized foam pads for customizing the fit. Where do you suggest locating these pads on the interior of the helmet for the best combination of fit, comfort and safety?

      Mine was tight on back and front and had gaps on sides. I put mine at points where it would be snug all the way around. I was confused also, but this worked for me. Velcro seems to be keeping things in place

      A:

      Brian, the pads come in different thicknesses to provide precise fit for all head shapes. Put the helmet on and adjust the ratchet system for a comfortable fore-and-aft fit. Then move the helmet side-to-side to check for fit. Add and remove the fit pads until you get a solid, comfortable fit.

      A:

      Brian,
      You've probably noticed that the different colored pads are different
      thicknesses. I've attached a picture of where I have put the pads on my
      helmet. This was simply the result of experimentation to get the helmet to
      fit snugly and comfortably. Also there is a black banana shaped pad that
      attaches to the interior piece (in front of the dial inside the back of the
      helmet) which is the first pad you should put in place. While I'm not the
      person to answer the 'safety' part of your question I believe that if the
      helmet fits snugly (i.e. not wobble or get moved out of place when you hit
      something) when the chin strap is tightened you're good to go. Also there's
      a relationship between comfort and your interest in always wearing your
      helmet-which is another aspect contributing to safety.
      Hope this helps. I'm sure that a call to customer service at NRS will yield
      whatever other info you need-they're great people and know their products
      well.
      Enjoy,
      Bob

      A:

      To start with its mostly trial and error. Fortunately its Velcro so you can spend some time playing around and getting it right. The Soft pads should have Velcro circles on one side ( I had one with two on one side and one with none I found out they are removable Velcro pieces). There should be some thin soft strips on the inside of the helmet already where you can stick the pads on. I recommend trying the helmet on without adding any shims. Buckle it up and tighten the boa strap in the back. Wear it for a little bit and see if the helmet feels like it loose or has some gaps. You can really only add the shims around the forehead, sides, back, and along the ridgeline of the top of your head. Try the different sizes of the shims in spots you feel like will help make the helmet snug without being uncomfortable . Shake your head around and see if the helmet moves if it does tighten the straps or add shims until it stays in place with some violent head banging (like you're listening to some real deep cuts from The Dead Kennedys or Motörhead). You might find that you don't need the shims which is ok. Also, keep the shims you don't use. Depending on the weather you might want to wear a beanie or hat, which might require some adjustment of the shims.
      Hope this helps. Happy paddling!

      My best advice would be to put on the helmet, and tighten the back. If it feels loose on the top use about 4 of medium foam pieces down the middle strip of fabric.
      In my helmet that's all I did and it feels great.

      I placed one on either side and just above each ear, and then placed one dead center but towards the top of my forehead just below hair line. These five disc coupled with the boa in the back balanced the helmet very well on my head!

                Comments about NRS Anarchy Helmet:

                After some serious trouble finding a helmet that will accomodate my 24 inch in diameter, long skull, I have a winner. The Boa dial-a-fit helps it stay clamped on during river bottom inspection sessions. Go to the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute's helmets.org (don't forget the "s") to read about the conehead technology. This is an effort to combine softer and harder foams to maximize the protection provided by the helmet. The "green" color is neon, safety yellow-green. Take out the ear pads for Dumbo ears, like mine. I would have preferred an even bigger fit to accomodate winter headgear, but I am over towards the end of the head size Bell curve.

                Comments about NRS Anarchy Helmet:

                I just received my Anarchy helmet after not being able to size any of the Chaos helmets to fit my head properly--and very skeptical that one helmet could fit a range from Medium to XL. Ordinarily I would wait to use the helmet before writing a review but the Anarchy is so new at the time of this writing that I thought some beta for those considering it would be useful. Unlike the Chaos there's no cool YouTube video to explain how to fit the Anarchy--and unlike the Chaos it really wasn't necessary as I figured it out in about 5 minutes. First adjust the rear band using the Boa mechanism so the helmet won't tip forward and then affix the small round pads (with velcro discs) as needed on the helmet's inner velcro strips. The rest is simple trial and error using various pad thicknesses around the helmet to get a snug and comfortable fit.
                I wanted to remove the earpads but they don't just snap off like other helmets. The bottom of each earpad has three posts that snap longitudinally into openings in the helmet. If you use both thumbs to push on the bottom of the earpad from the outside of the helmet towards the inside they will snap out.
                So while I haven't had a chance to use the helmet yet I can tell you the fit is both comfortable and rock-solid. I'm impressed and will write another review if use proves contrary to my expectations that his is one great helmet.
