NRS WRSI Trident Composite Helmet
NRSWRSI Trident Composite Helmet

A safe helmet with sleek style.

Not only does the NSR WRSI (Whitewater Research and Safety Institute) Trident Composite Helmet protect your noggin on the water, but it also has a sleek, badass look. The rugged carbon composite shell utilizes a polyurethane sub-shell to effectively dissipate impacts from rocks and trees, and the Interconnect Retention System utilizes nine EVA pads with different thicknesses to provide a completely customizable—and very comfortable—fit for any sized dome. WRSI's process uses wind-powered technology to create products without a lot of production waste.

Comfy and stylish

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this several years ago as a commercial raft guide. Great fit. I only used the thin spacers in the front and back and it fit like a glove after ratcheting down the retention system. The visor is a great feature for helping keep the beak free from getting crispy. Luckily I never took any headshots, so I never tested the impact and I keep it around as my spare helmet.
The only negative feature is that some of the decoration peeled away and I had to use some clear tape to keep the helmet looking stylish.
Great choice for safety and style.

This helmet saved my life!

Literally! I took a hit so hard with this helmet during a roll that it actually indented and cracked the outer enamel but not the carbon fiber. Because of the great protection this helmet provides I was still able to complete a successful combat roll and avoid what would've been a nasty swim.
If I hadn't been wearing it, I surely would've been knocked unconscious with little likelihood of rescue!
Highly recommend.

This helmet saved my life!

I really wanted the helmet to fit

    The helmet wasn't small enough for my head. Even with the shims I couldn't get the helmet small enough. I had the chin strap cinched down as far as I could go and it just wasn't working for me. I had to return it.

    Finally a helmet that match!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Sorry i am French :) LOL

      Really simple to fit, WOW I love, I think this helmet is made for people who do not match with the sweet strruter because it is a form of more round head :) The only negative is the Velcro inside the helmet, they take off as soon as I came out of the box (bran new) to fix the spacer in the helmet. But this helmet is realy good.

      Vraiment simple a fit, WOW j'adore, je pense que ce casque est fait pour les gens qui ne match pas avec le sweet strruter car c'est une forme de tête plus ronde :) Le seul point négatif c'est les velcro à l'intérieur du casque, ils se sont décoller aussitôt que je l'est sortie de la boite ( bran new ) pour fixer the spacer . Mais ce casque est vraiment bon.

      Great helmet & fit!

      Love the helmet, light, solid and very durable! It fits my head like a glove!

      I found it did not fit me. Guess my head is not perfectly round, sent it back because it sat on my head too high, was able to expose my forehead too easily even with padding

      good helmet

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I hit my head hard several times in a row on the lower gauley when I was upside down. I rolled up and didn't feel a thing. With other helmets my head has hurt after hitting a rock, but this helmet does a great job at keeping you from feeling the impact. This helmet also looks cool in my opinion. The only bad thing is that it is difficult to get fitted well. Other than that it is great
