The Forward WIP Sailing X-Over helmet was developed in collaboration with several teams in the America's Cup, to offer the best protection and meet the requirements of catamaran competitions going at speeds over 30 knots. The ski helmet standard was chosen because it is much higher than the standard for water helmets.

This helmet will be the perfect choice for foil sailing enthusiasts who would also like to use it in winter up in the mountains.
