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.

Foam padding that comes with helmet is poor

By Big E

from Pennsylvannia

Comments about NRS Anarchy Helmet:

Foam padding that comes with helmet is poor. Little circle pieces of foam used to adjust helmet constantly falling out. Other foam cushion in helmet doesn't cover plastic pieces so if you have your hair short the plastic rubs to much. Plastic Shell of helmet is thin and doesn't look like it will take much abuse.
Would not buy again or recommend.

Only helmet for dudes with big heads

By Shred Jesse

from Portland OR

Pros

  • Best fit for dudes with big heads
  • Ease of adjustability

Cons

  • MAKE A FULL FACE OPTION!

Best Uses

    Comments about NRS Anarchy Helmet:

    This helmet is the best helmet for dudes with big heads. If the sweet protection helmets in their largest sizes just barely fit you, this is your jam. You'll be able to wear warm neoprene layers beneath it as well, which many dudes with large heads have to forgo unfortunately. The adjustability ensures you can go from wearing a liner to not and back again quickly and easily. Definitely dig this helmet.

      Q:

      How do you remove the ear flaps?

        A:

        The ear flaps simply snap in and snap out. There is a right and left
        side. Make sure to line up the grommets on the flaps to the matching
        cutouts in the helmet and snap into place.

      Q:

      I cannot find a picture of the inside of this helmet on the internet. A couple reviews comment on the forehead not being adequately padded. Does it have the same padding system as the chaos? If not, do you think the padding is adequate to insure a comfortable fit?

        A:

        The Anarchy uses the innovative Conehead technology (http://coneheadhelmets.com.au/), that dissipates impact energy very effectively. It's a different liner than the Chaos has. Conehead is also rapidly being adopted by bike and motorcycle helmet makers.

      Q:

      One reviewer mentioned being able to remove the bill but that's not mentioned in the specs. Is that the case? I'm thinking I might want a little more protection from the sun, while on my SUP river running, and was wondering if I could remove the bill and add the helmet visor? Thanks!

        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?

        A:

        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!

        A:

        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.

        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!

        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:

        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.

        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
