Top helmet for the water

The helmet offers effective protection against blows and impacts. The helmet is made of a material that is incredibly hard when hit, but can be changed safely with gentle pressure. It is light and super comfortable and the price-performance ratio is unbeatable. I use the helmet for wing foiling.

Given for 58/60 the L tightens me a little while I am 59...the chin strap must be well stretched otherwise major skin irritations. Afterwards, to open the skull well beforehand, I put up with these inconveniences.

Great soft helmet - need to size up though

A great soft surf style helmet that hardens upon impact, but is soft and flexible otherwise. I normally wear a size small helmet or hat (at least in North America), but needed a medium in this brand.

Surf helmet

Protects very well and comfortable

Water sports helmet

Lightweight and safe. Use in water sports in rocky areas.

becomes hard in extreme cold???

This helmet becomes hard and its size shrinks by temperature between 5° and 1° to such an extent that I thought I bought the wrong size but once warm at home it becomes soft again. bad component? however it is approved for -10°. I've had this experience several times in front of witnesses, it's amazing...

Additional Product Information


Shell: 80.0% Foamed Thermoplastic Polyurethane, 20.0% Polyamide ; Flap: 100.0% Polypropylene


This product limits the surfer’s injuries such as scalp wounds and impacts that cause superficial effects.No protective equipment can offer total protection from injury.The effectiveness of the protection can be reduced as a result of extended exposure to extreme temperatures (below -10°C, above 50°C).

Recommendations for use

Wearing this protection should not stop you from respecting the safety guidelines and priority rules associated with surfing.For maximum protection, the helmet should be adjusted to the user’s head with the help of the support system in the chin and neck area.Try different sizes in order to select one that best matches the size of your head.


This helmet can be used during recreational surf sessions in normal conditions, but not for motorised sports or surfing in very large waves.The test protocol is valid for recreational surfing only. As such, its use in any other water sport ( foil, wake, kite, etc.) is at the user's own risk.


S (head circumference 52-54 cm)M (head circumference 55-57 cm)L (head circumference 58-64 cm)XL (head circumference 60-64 cm)The sizes given are for guidance, as the helmet is soft. So some may prefer to have it tighter than others.The label attached to the helmet is designed for hard shell helmets, the head size tolerance is lower in this label.

Product testing

Olaian is based in Hendaye in the Basque Country (France). All year round, our design teams devise and develop attractive, simple and technically advanced products. We then test them in waves in collaboration with our ambassadors and sea professionals in the strictest conditions. We are convinced that, for us to progress, there is no substitute for the real-life situations you will experience.

Storage instructions

Avoid heat sources. Do not bend the helmet out of shape by putting it under heavier objects to maintain comfort on your head.
