    Q:

    I'm having trouble figuring out how to remove the ear pads. Any feedback to help walk me through this process would be appreciated.

      A:

      Jourdon, at the back of the ear pad there's a contrasting colored plastic piece with a finger ring molded in it. Pull back on the ring to release the back catch that secures the pad. Then pivot the pad forward to release the front catch.

    Q:

    Is ear protection on the helmet designed to protect from impact against objects or to slow an influx of water into the ear. I've had eardrum issues due to hitting the water just right.

      A:

      The ear protection is very thick plastic with a comfortable inside liner.
      The ear piece would protect from an impact of an object.

      A:

      A little of both
      But more to protect against the influx of water
      I've hit the water pretty hard wearing this helmet and not hurt my ears yet.
      But previously without it, I sometimes worried i'd burst my eardrum it hurt so much.

      A:

      I have always looked for helmets that would provide ear protection from impact. But, the protection on this helmet does restrict the flow of water into the ears so that is a plus. I like this helmet but had to spend a lot of time fine tuning the fit. I used their pads and others to get it just right. I do like it, I went for years with an old Protec helmet because I could not find one that fit( stayed in place), and I tried quite a few.

      A:

      Noland, the ear protection serves both functions. Ear pieces are pierced with holes to facilitate hearing, but at the same time they'll prevent a high volume of water from striking the ear.

    Q:

    I have never owned a helmet with such a prominent visor, do any of you who have used this helmet find that the visor causes drag when trying to roll?

      No, the visor is fixed on with a rivet on each side.

      when i got the helmet i just looked and didn't really try, as far as i saw, it is not removable

      A:

      Not without drilling out the rivets and replacing with something removable.

      A:

      This Visor is not removable and if you're thinking about purchasing for the
      attachable face mask it wasn't easy getting to attach.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Nope, but it's movable. The visor is designed to stay on to create an air
      pocket in case of a pin. The ear flaps are removable and a removable face
      mask can also be ordered.

      A:

      No, Riza, the visor is attached by rivets. It does swivel slightly, opening up a path for water to pass under it.

    Comments about WRSI Current Pro Helmet:

    The big visor is good because it keeps the sun out if my eyes, but it can catch the water and push the helmet backwards when I hit the water hard. Unless you value the sun shading a lot, I would recommend the original version with the smaller peak.
    I probably wish I had bought that version instead. But either way it's a great helmet.
