I took a hard hit in my Sweet and had a terrible headache for 2 days. The helmet protected my head and kept form but took no impact.
I have switched to Head Trip...

I was there that night and would fully agree that HEAD TRIP helmets are the bomb!!!! I have never seen something as dramatic as this blow Kirk took. I nearly crapped my pants because I thought for sure he was going to be unconscious. The other reason I nearly dropped a load was because I thought I was going to have to run Kiss Me blind while chasing Kirk downstream. You see my boat was the safety boat sitting in the Kiss Me eddy. We have the run on video...unfortunately the person who took the video missed the actual blow but got Kirk rolling up with half a paddle. I will see if we can get a picture of the helmet posted sometime soon.

I am so stoked I decided to buy a Head Trip was truely put to the test that night. If you are looking for a new helmet definitely check Head Trip out.

I'm feeling even better about ordering my new head trip helmet after reding all of this. Kirk seemed pretty healthy in Gunni last weekend and from the sound of things it was all about the helmet (& some good fortune).
Can't wait for mine to arrive.

Price depends on the color you go with. For a carbon/kevlar or candy colored, $125. For a chrome or grafix, $135.

Also, the website should be back up and running. or
