Grateful Heads

Hello to all. I have been recently and pretty majorly concussed. This is not the first concussion, i like my brain occasionally and so now I am looking at fancy helmets for next season. I am very interested in the Grateful Heads helmets but am having a hard finding their info ie website, email and/or phone number. Can someone help me out? Thanks....

i still have one, a helmet that is, and was trying to find another last season. i came to the conclusion that they aren't around anymore.

I have a grateful head right now and it is very nice. I don't flip very much due to the fact I haven't gotten to paddle hard water yet but I assure you the helmet will help a lot if you do happen to bang your head on a rock. The only complaint that I have with the helmet is that it doesnt come down far enough on the side of your head and it can still easily hurt you or in a severe case give you a concussion.

When the time comes, I hope my plain WRSI is enough. Ouch. I know it's come in handy with preventing minor dings and rock clunking while upside down, but nothing major. I had a concussion when I was snowboarding at the age of 12. That was before you ever saw anyone with a helmet on groomers.

If my WRSI isn't enough though, I've considered upgrading to one of these. Will need to outfit it with some good padding and possibly keep it waxed though.

I assume if you can get by wearing one on a medieval battlefield, that paddling a boat with one on would be childsplay. Not saying I could, though.

I wasn't poking fun at normal full face helmets though. I have the full face attachment for my WRSI and have used it several times. I don't trust it as much as I would a permanent full-face like the one Dane Jackson wears though.

ok thanks for the quick responses guys. I suppose grateful heads is no more. It's a shame they seemed like a very cool company.

I have the full face Sweet Protection, I think it is called the rocker. I rang my bell once last year and was really glad to have been wearing it. It is really comfy and didn't hender my view at all. Give them a look if you want a solid helmet but they are spendy. But still not as much as a new head.
