The advanced design features, unique close fit, and stable design of the Gath helmet with Retractable Visor (RV) have made it a world leader since 1992. The full face visor is fully adjustable to any position within its range to provide both total vision and maximum face protection against the damaging elements of sun, wind and salt water spray. The RV comes standard with a gray visor fitted, but other visor colors are also available. All visor colors block more than 98% of UV light. Audio vents are fully adjustable to meet your needs.
A storage bag is included. Weight: 460-510g.
The Gath helmet with Retractable Visor has long been favored by:
• Surfers in the tropics (pull the visor down for sun protection)
• Rescue services (visor protects from helicopter prop wash and spray encountered while driving PWC)
• Whitewater river enthusiasts (due to near total face and head protection).
1. To provide maximum coverage that will STAY PUT (resist dislodging or displacement due to bucketing, rocks or snags), even after the second or third "hit" or "bump."
2. To be easily adjustable to fit head size and shape.
3. To be light weight (360-420g) and low profile so that it will not cause unnecessary water resistance and/or neck strain.
4. To be versatile, adjustable for water or weather conditions.
5. To be durable (multiple impact) and low maintenance (easy-to-clean, fast-to-dry liner, marine quality components).
Gath helmets are made from quality materials to strict specifications. They are built to last and are backed with a 3-year warranty. All materials are strong, durable, rust proof and will withstand harsh climate conditions and temperature extremes.
