- Impact Resistant Construction - Made strong, durable, and rust proof, the UV-stable, quality ABS plastic will withstand harsh climate conditions and temperature extremes. Multi-impact EVA closed cell foam liner with closed-cell EVA foam comfort strips.
- Peak Visor - UV-stable, shatterproof, flexible, quality nylon plastic visor offers sun and impact protection when in use or can be easily removed.
- Wear It and Forget It Comfort - Flexible fitting ear protectors adjust to you! Ear protectors are removable to accommodate warm temperature or your style. Four-point attachment keeps Gath secure with or without ear protectors.
- Added Forehead Protection - Molded high-density foam padding adds protective insulation from bumps, helps hold helmet in proper position, and adds sizing element for optimal fit.
- Neck Protection - The low volume, lightweight, rounded shell shape helps protect from the effects of "bucketing" water or from "snagging" the reef, a leash, or your board.
- More Secure, Suction Cup Fit - Molded, closed-cell liner and peel-and-stick comfort fit strips allow you to achieve real comfort, security and proper fitting of head shape.
- Comfortable Fit System - The comfort strip fitting system is very versatile. Be creative with different padding combinations and configurations to customize the fit to your head shape. Some customers even lift the internal liner flaps and put segments of comfort strips underneath, using the self-adhesive back to stick them to the shell.
- Lightweight Protection- The Gedi weighs 360-420 grams, depending on size and accessories being used.
*Please note that neither the included peak visor, nor any optional visor, should be worn for skydiving, as the visors were not designed for the extreme speeds involved in skydiving.
**Orange size XXL is always a special order item.
- Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Almost perfectReview by DaBA DaBA
RatingAlmost great, fits well, stays in place, the visor is nice but you can also move it up so its out of your field of vision which helps while paddling out on a surfboard. My only complaint is that the ear covers don't connect well with the helmet, seems flimsy, they're always migrating loose, and I have a feeling I'm going to lose one of them some day. Would be 5 stars if the ear covers clicked in place better.(Posted on 9/16/2016) 2016-09-16
- Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Great Helmet!Review by Amanda Amanda
RatingThis helmet is great! It fits well---no headache after use--- and covers most of my head so I feel comfortable and protected in this helmet. The awesome customer support and fast shipping was a bonus, too!(Posted on 4/26/2016) 2016-04-26
- Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Finally got a helmet to fit my headReview by wahl-e wahl-e
RatingTried a couple different helmets over the past year, but both gave me a headache after an hour or so - they were too short - from front to back - to fit my head. The Gath fits perfectly. (I did have to cut a small amount of foam out at the temple to clear my sunglasses, but I've had to do that on other helmets as well.)(Posted on 10/19/2015) 2015-10-19
- Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet A bodyboarder/photogs dream. Review by mushie pea mushie pea
RatingHave been wearing this helmet, gopro attached and not, for a month now in the shorebreak at Windansea in San Diego. The weight is just right and offers sun protection as well as brain. Cleanline worked with me until my misshapen head could be fit. While I feel somewhat like an egg over easy in whitewater (matt yellow) I feel my yolk is secure, ha.(Posted on 7/29/2015) 2015-07-29
- Gath Gedi Convertible Helmet Fine helmet for kiteboardingReview by kiteleroy kiteleroy
RatingAfter taking the usual number of kiteboarding crashes (and having worn helmets for skiing, snowboarding and biking) I decided to get a watersport brain bucket. However, with the exception of the Gath, other products fit, well, like a bucket. I was able to try a friend's Gath and determined that the Large was the right size. Granted the Gath is pricey, but for the comfortable fit and protection, I believe it's a value. The visor is a nice touch as it does provide some protection from the sun.(Posted on 7/8/2015) 2015-07-08
