Approved helmets and PFD´s
Dear adidas Sickline participants,
as we always try to improve our safety standards at the Extreme Kayak World Championship in the interest of our competitors, our safety experts have now issued a list of approved helmets and PFDs, which all meet the official safety requirements.
This list has been based on the following criteria:
- the material the helmet is made out of
- the amount of the head that is protected
Here you can find a detailed list for approved helmets.
- the existence of a chest harness, which can be used as an attachment point if an athlete is pinned to quickly extricate her/him
- the existence of re-enforced shoulder straps, which take more than normal load
Here you can find a detailed list for approved PFD's.
Please ensure that the helmet/ PFD you are planning to use at the adidas Sickline is listed. If your helmet/ PFD is not on the list, please contact us in advance.
