How to measure for your size

To find the right size, wrap a measuring tape around the head, just above the ears (see figure). Try to keep it level front to back. Once you have your measurement, you can use the chart above as a guide. Keep in mind that all Sweet Protection helmets have adjustment systems and are delivered with fit pads to ensure the perfect fit.

The Wanderer is an absolute staff favourite at Robin Hood Watersports and a credit to the tireless work of all the staff at Robin Hood Watersports.  This 2021 update sees epic new colours but retains the quality and amazing fit you expect from the Wanderer.

The Wanderer is the helmet in the Sweet Protection range that offers the ultimate balance of protection, value and fit.  It was first introduced in 2008 and for a time was overlooked by paddlers in preference to the ever popular Rocker and Strutter. However, the Wanderer has passed the test of time and having seen several small revisions should now be viewed as your perfect partner as a single helmet purchase for all-round river use.

When you think of the Wanderer your first thoughts should be:

  • All-round river helmet
  • Direct Ventilation
  • Lighweight
  • Comfortable
  • Occigrip

Shell Technology
ABS Thermoplastic Shell
  1. Sweet Protection's injection molded ABS Thermoplastic Shell is very impact resistant through its special rubber toughened construction. The shell is molded with extreme precision to offer the best performance to weight ratio.
Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Shell
  1. Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Shell (CRP) provides an incredible strength to weight ratio, rigidity and impact performance. By carefully laminating fibers with different properties and directions, Sweet Protection are able to create a superlight, optimized helmet shell. An invention from the cold war put to good use.
Impact Absorption

Gate Shields
  1. EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) with polycarbonate shells in-molded into the main EPS liner to protect the shock absorbing structure of the helmet from gate impacts. The Gate Shields are placed both in the front and the back of the helmet, as the gates tend to bend after an impact in the front, and hit the helmet in the back as well.
  1. The Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Shock Absorbing Liner provides great low volume shock absorption. The liner offers high memory, low temperature toughness and crack resistance, providing great protection for low speed impacts.
Interior Technology

Occigrip Turn Dial
  1. Makes the helmet easily adjustable with a low volume mechanism. The Occigrip construction provides a firm and comfortable fit and prevents the helmet from rolling on your head. Adjustable in both reach and height.
CoolMax Liner
  1. A stitched, full covering liner made from the anti-allergenic and moisture wicking Coolmax material. It provides great comfort in a wide range of temperatures.
Direct Ventilation
  1. Keeps your head cool. The number of vents and their configuration varies. The more vents, the cooler you will be.
  1. Place as you please for the ultimate personalized fit.
