Helmets

We can never repeat it often enough: protection – foul weather gear, gloves, lifejacket – in a boat is essential. And if you sail foilers, you will also need a helmet. Forward WIP, Groupama’s and Team France Jeune’s protection partner during the last America’s Cup, has perfected, with their crew, this new X-Over helmet, which meets the SkiCE standard, required by the Cup, where high speeds mean impacts can be very violent. Light, aerodynamic and protective!

In the case of the Volvo, it also has to be exceptionally tough, to resist 8 months’ racing in the worst possible conditions.
