    Comments about WRSI Current Pro Helmet:

    I love the look of this helmet, it's my first helmet that I've purchased and the price point is right on. My biggest drawbacks to this helmet are that it seeme like it's barely adjustable and it gives me quite the headache when I wear it. I've tried the different pieces of padding and I just can't seem to get it to fit right.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Customer service at NRS is amazing. Hey sent me out a new helmet right away when the one that unordered had the straps all twisted. They got the replacement to me in something like three days. Top notch customer service.

      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.

          A:

          It's a great helmet in the water and I'd recommend it for that,
          And it's lightweight and fits snugly so might be ok for use on bikes but could be a bit hot as it doesn't have the ventilation holes that bike helmets usually do.

          A:

          Im more kayaker than mountain biker, but I do both. This helmet is certainly going to be much "hotter" than a mountain bike helmet. You should look into whether it meets all the safety reqs for mountain biking...i suspect it will. If you're not whitewater kayaking I think you'd be better off with a mountain bike helmet that you could use on the water.

          A:

          Pedro, the helmet is only certified to the CE EN 1385 watersports helmet standard. Bike helmets have to meet a separate standard. We can't recommend the helmet for any other activity than watersports.

        Q:

        Does this helmet float?

        If it comes off or is dropped in the water, will it float so that it can be retrieved?

        Thanks.

          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.

        • Staff Reviewer

          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.

        • VERIFIED BUYER

          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:

          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:

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

          A:

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

          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.

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

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