Sounds like your helmet did it's job well. Glad you're OK. What kind of helmet were you wearing?

I'm loving my Sweet Strutter, but it hasn't been tested with a major impact yet.

I have a 3 year old Sweet Rooster

I have a 3 year old Sweet Rooster, I have taken a few hits with it over the years and the helmet has worked out great from me. I have never taken a hit like Bryans Helmet. I hope it will take the beating when the time comes. -Luke

i've taken some huge hits....

most notably a 12-15 ft drop right onto rocks on my noggin at the middle drop of stairway to heaven on the bear in GA, and had no injury and no damage to the helmet. i use a grateful heads with extreme layup. it just distributed the force - didn't even break the helmet (although i did get a new one out of prudence).

I was there the other day when this crash happened and I can honestly say that I have never seen a helmet take a harder hit and in a very consequential place - the paralyzer. It is amazing that B came out conscious – and with a broken paddle and kiss me coming it was imperative that he catch the Eddie between the two. It would have been very bad if the helmet had not taken the hit as well as it did.

I have paddled with the same hat for about 7 years now and after seeing how that Head Trip helmet handled a very very hard hit I got right on the phone with Big Worm and ordered a new one. Can’t say enough about how well that helmet took the hit. Also we are very happy to see that the cat scan came up negative and that Brian is already tearing it up again.
