Cascade: Janus / Water Sports Helmet

This white water kayaking helmet features a central section of Dow Corning\'s new APS layered over Cascade Helmets new Seven Tech. This combination provides increased impact absorption, increased air flow, and lighter weight over top end production sports helmets, and a partially flexible shell due to material characteristics. This core is sandwiched between sections of traditional helmet construction, an ABS plastic shell encasing an EPP foam liner, to offer the user the comfort of what they\'ve always known. An Evazote foam brow and rear and Oletek liner provide comfort and fit. Completely mechanical assembly eliminates the use of adhesives.
