Sweet Protection Rocker Helmet

Built for serious whitewater charging.

The clear favorite of the hard-charging Sweet Protection pro team, the Rocker Helmet is a high-performance whitewater helmet designed to offer lightweight and comfortable protection for all but the rowdiest of rapids. Unless you're charging waterfalls the size of a small building, the standard Rocker is more than enough for the biggest challenges in the river.

Sweet Protection used a unique combination of thermoplastic and carbon fiber to make the shell softer at the crown and more rigid toward the sides. Coupled with the high-impact, low-weight EPP foam inside, this combination of material allows for the most versatile impact protection from big, low-speed hits and small, high-speed bonks. CoolMax material on the lining wicks moisture and dries rapidly to help you stay cool in tropical temps.

Occigrip construction makes the helmet easily adjustable to provide a secure, yet comfortable fit that won't shift when you get tumbled in turbulent waters. Fit pads can be moved around to create a custom fit that's perfect for your dome. The adjustable, shatter-resistant visor keeps the sun out of your eyes when you're paddling under the searing desert sky. All in all, you get a lid that fits like a glove, drains quickly, adjusts in mere moments, and keeps your skull safe in the whitewater when that's all that matters.

Best on the market.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Whitewater Helmets by Sweet Protection are the best investment you can make into your kayak gear.

My head is important to me, and there's really no excuse for protecting it. I sport both the Rocker and Rocker Fullface. They fit like a glove and I have never, in 4 years, had a single problem with them, and I am sure they've saved me from a concussion more than once.

Customer service and product quality is second to none. Highly recommended.

The price is worth the protection.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been in swift water rescue courses and white water for the last 4 days and my helmet has been the last thing on my mind. I've tried multiple brands and designs and this one by far fits my head the best. After a few light impacts, I can say it definitely works and provides great comfort in both hot and cold conditions (air and water). The removable ear pads are fantastic as is the breakaway bill. Keeps the face a little sun protected and keeps me from having to wear sunglasses. Love this helmet.
