Here it is a Sweet Protection Strutter 2019. These things won’t be out until well into 2019 but we have one right here at Unsponsored to check out, wear, use and review with the help of North East Kayaks and Paddles.
It’s been a while since Shred Ready launched a new helmet for the paddlesport market. Over the last few days they have been showing parts of the new Shred Ready Zeta.
The Zeta is a peaked helmet that uses the BOA 3 retention system.
We are sorry for teasing you guys over the last week or so! Hope this new helmet makes up for it! Enter, the #zeta. We’ll share the colors this week to get you more #stoked as well. Special thanks to @kem_studio for the collaboration. Want to try it on today? We are at booth 1006 at @paddlesportsretailer. #cuzrockshurt
What do you think?
The Shuck helmet from Palm Equipment is now available. I got to try on a 3d printed prototype a few years ago and am looking forward to trying the real thing.
Way back in 2006 WRSI was a new company and we had one of the first Current helmets off the production line. At that time Unsponsored was looking at importing the WRSI Current into Europe but it was not going to be viable at the time. We used the WRSI Current for a couple of years on and off before moving to another brand.
Move forward 12 years and we have the WRSI Current Pro helmet in for review.
WRSI technology combines three-layer impact absorption, intentional outfitting design and a plush interior to deliver comfortable helmets that can take the hits. The multi-impact shell combined with an EVA foam liner and a polyurethane sub-shell effectively dissipate impacts.
If the Rocker isn’t giving you the protection you need may be the full face version is the one for you. This limited edition version is available in a metallic white and metallic red combination.
The only true difference is the addition of the jaw guard. Materials and construction of the helmet is the same as the Rocker.
A Sweet Protection Rocker has been in the Unsponsored gear bag for a number of years. Mine is nice and simple gloss white number which I really get on well with. This Sweet Protection Rocker however is a two tone metallic affair. Metallic white top and metallic red lower. Even the visor matches.
Sweet Protection have just shared some of their new line up with Unsponsored. This includes some new gear, design changes and some colour updates.
First up is the 2018 Sweet Strutter.
Believe it or not the Sweet Protection Strutter helmet has been around for 20 years, and 2017 marks the 20th anniversary. The Strutter was first made in 1997, that is even before Sweet protection actually existed. We’ve had at least one of the Strutter models at Unsponsored HQ from the very start.
To celebrate 20 years Sweet have released a couple of limited edition models of the Strutter. Both helmets are based around the latest iteration of the Strutter which was released in 2012. Since its first release the Strutter has significantly evolved.
