As part of its partnership with the International Nacra 17 Class, Forward WIP is proud to offer to the 30 best sailors in the world, a helmet specially designed for them. They will receive it during the Forward WIP European Championship in Attersee.

The helmets corresponds to the PROWIP 2.0 model. Made with in-mold technology (a thin polycarbonate shell co-injected with polystyrene foam), which has become the leading sailing helmet thanks to its ultralight weight (less than 300g) and superior shock absorption that exceeds by far the water helmet CE norm.

The customization elements are added to this high performing design and aerodynamic shape, for a better perception of the wind. Forward WIP is providing leading Nacra 17 riders a helmet in the color of their country with high visibility neon for better safety.

All sailors and volunteers at the championship will additionally receive a championship visor and Forward WIP will be supporting the media efforts at the Championship.
