The open face design offers full peripheral vision with its wide aperature while protecting the sides and back of the head.
The grooves along the helmet are designed to increase the strength to weight ratio of the ABS shell. It also allows water to run off the back of the helmet to keep vision clear.
The patented inflatable liner is an integral part of the helmet design; through an oral valve, the liner has the ability to inflate or deflate to create a perfect fit every time.
This offers an inherent buoyancy to the user, and if overboard and rising up to the surface will position user to rise with the helmet to take any impacts.
The neck is cut high to allow users full motion of their head to look all around them including above them in case of a helicopter rescue.
This also allows for life jackets and buoyancy aids to be used and not push the helmet up from the back and obscure user vision.
