It seems like this year is all about new gear. New lines, new models of boats and lots and lots of new gear. In keeping with this theme of newness I would like to unveil the latest addition to Western Canoeing and Kayaking already ample supply of top of the line gear.
Sweet Protection has been at the for front of awesome gear for whitewater paddlers for many years already. Known best for their top of the line helmets Sweet has now ventured into other realms like dry gear, urban cloths and paddling accessories.
Here at WCK we are now fully stocked on Sweet gear, and the gear is just that, SWEET! With lots of helmets ranging from full face's to brimmed baseball style helmets to suit every paddlers need, and possibly more important every paddlers fashion needs. No seriously though, lots of styles and lots of colors.
Aside from helmets, we have some dry tops, dry pants, paddling shorts and gear bags all from Sweet. With some of the stock already sold before it even arrived be sure to swing in soon and see some of this great new gear.
The Rocker Full Face is the next level full face. Composite carbon construction, super comfy and adjustable outfitting, Sweet visor for mad sexy points and sun blocking and two sizes to ensure a good fit for all day comfort.
The Sweet Strutter will have you strutting your way down the river or through the surf zone, without having to squint at reflecting sun off the water. The original brimmed paddling helmet.
The Wanderer is Sweet cheapest helmet, but its not short on Sweet features. Built with Carbon Fiber reinforcing and Sweet's already legendary outfitting. At $139.00 its easy to see why this is such a popular lid.
We all love Gore-Tex, and so does Sweet. Made with Gore-Tex the Shadrach Top offers extreme dryness in all conditions and durability to hold up through the worst conditions. the cut of these tops is great, after one run in my new top it never pulled tight even for freestyle moves and didn't leak a drop.
"Its brand NEW! The gear bag you've been waiting for. Big compartment for wet gear with a long zip on the side. Front zip pocket, and integrated tarp to keep your feet clean when changing. Straps for easy carry." Sweet Protection, Dirty Frank Gear Bag.
"A highly technical paddle shorts especially designed to complement our dry tops. It’s constructed to provide an excellent fit while seated, and the neoprene liner provides warmth. The legs are extended over the knees for padding and protection." Sweet Protection
Who ever said blue wasn't a high visibility color? (Tacky 80's shades sold separately)
The maiden run of my new Sweet top and shorts in the Chilliwack River Canyon. With outstanding dryness from the Sweet Top and the Jackson Villain there wasn't a drop of water in my boat at the end of the run . . . even after a few dunkings.
