"Arguably, the single most important piece of equipment when kayaking is the helmet. Itís certainly the most misunderstood. But not at Gath. Working with some of kayakingís top athletes, Gath developed a helmet that is undoubtedly the safest helmet in the industry. The helmet is safe because it covers ALL the vital areas of the head, from the temples to the medulla, and once on the head, it simply does not move. While a helmet must be able to absorb a significant impact, itís more important to be able to take multiple glancing blows without failing or rotating on the head, and there simply isnít another helmet on the market that even comes close to the Gath Gedi on both scores. The optional pull down visor protects the eyes from both the harmful rays of the sun, amplified by reflection off the water, and from objects like twigs and branches while portaging, as well as offering greater face protection from rocks when needed. If youíre wearing anything else kayaking, you have no respect for your head." -- Corran Addison
