Yes I know there are paddling boards but I know a lot of mountain bikers are kayakers too. I'm just getting into kayaking and am looking for opinions on different helmets. The fact that there is no American safety standard makes it a little harder to compare different types. I'm not too interested in the Pro-Tec models, just seem to fragile. I've seen some nice looking helmets from Grateful Heads and Shred Ready but am looking for advice from those who have actually used some.
