DMC fins / SOFT SURF HELMET SSH is a thermoformed headgear with peak and neck protector.
Made from non-porous NBR foam encased in nylon elastane the SSH™ is designed to protect reasonable impact in all extreme water sports conditions.
It’s super lightweight - weighing less than 100g and constructed to allow water flow and therefore will not balloon or try to remove your head if face planted in a wave; for example.
The SSH Flip-Top-Peak is unique in which it can remain up or when down will not obstruct vision during duck dive or any underwater activity with momentum. It will also spring back to its peak position when emerging from a submerged position.
The neck flap is for sun and wind protection keeping you cosy in the winter and those nasty UV rays off when exposed.
DMC’s SSH™ has maximum audio capabilities i.e. you can hear everything necessary for normal surf or water activity.
The main effective qualities of this product are:
Audio (hear waves)
Heat (keep warm)
Sun (off neck)
Glare (flip peak)
SSH ™ is a must for any extreme watersport or even junior watersport likely to have possible impact namely:
Dory Rowing and more...

The 360°-Fit system allows for a quick, snug, and comfortable fit right out of the box. Whereas standard helmets are only adjustable on their back part, the Slash Core's headband leads from the back to the front right around the entire head. This considers the full circumference and individual shape of the rider's head - instead of simply pressing it against the front of the helmet. 360° Fit results in enhanced wearing comfort, less movement while riding or when crashing, and an even distribution of pressure. To top it off, the headband's adjustability extends the size range meaning riders can select from two sizes only.
