Introduced in 2008, the Wanderer helmet has become firmly established as a whitewater classic. The Wanderer II helmet is the latest revision in this iconic line and is a dependable performer for all-round river use, with superior protection capabilities that earn it a best-in-class Five-Star Safety Rating in Virginia Tech's stringent safety testing. The Sweet Protection Wanderer and Rocker are the only whitewater/paddle sport helmets to achieve five stars from this highly regarded, independent third-party testing facility.

As with its predecessors, the Wanderer II is packed with safety and comfort enhancing features. An extremely tough injection-moulded ABS shell is wrapped around a highly impact-resistant EPP core and further reinforced with our CRP (Carbon Reinforced Polymer) shell technology in strategic areas, ensuring maximum impact protection and day-to-day durability. Direct Ventilation and a Coolmax® moisture-wicking liner optimise comfort, with a removable top pad for easy care. Dial in a precise, personalised fit, even over insulating headwear, with our fast-adjusting Occigrip retention system, which ensures a secure, stable and comfortable fit every time.

My Review of the Wanderer 2

I have found this helmet to provide the best protection on the market for helmets, it is by far the most sturdy helmet for kayaking I own. It has also arrived at my house very quick and I am satisfied with delivery. I do not know another brand that I would switch too as this helmet is the best thing I own.
