    At these speeds, a mountain bike helmet is not going to cut it.

    I always wear a life jacket. I wear a my race jersey over my life jacket when I race. That is what your seeing in this picture taken from the over head helicopter swooping in for a close up.

    This is from a different angle. Not sure if you can tell but it is the slippery life vest. The helicopter was directly over me on his shot maybe 20 feet off the water.

    I run a sixsixone Flight Icon helmet. It is all carbon fiber composite. Makes thinks real light in the water. Two things to get you from buying a poly(plastic) helmet. These are all the 200.00 and less. Number one when they get wet, they are heavy. Number 2, when they crack you sometimes dont see the crack. You go and wear it and think you have protection but really it is junk. When a carbon fiber helmet cracks it will crunch in like an egg. You dont have to believe a word I say. Just go and look at all the top riders in any sport. All are wearing carbon fiber helmets. Spend a little more in the beginning. Remember you only have one head.(egg) Once it crush you can't fix it.


    Here is anpther example:

    sixsixone helmet Exceeds Snell M2005, US DOT, AU, and CE standards.

    HJC is Snell M2000 and DOT-218 approved.

    You pay for what you get. I am not trying to bash HJC but I will never wear one.
