ZETA is a kayaking helmet designed to seamlessly blend beauty, performance, simplicity and, of course, a little attitude. The designers were inspired by the style and swagger of sports athletes during the late 1960s, like Roberto Clemente and Muhammad Ali. Like them, ZETA was designed to be unique inside and out. The LRP™ (light reflection protection) minimizes glare, temple guards are die cast in aluminum for better protection, and advanced materials lend a more comfortable and less bulky fit, similar to a baseball cap. It may be the first helmet you don’t rush to take off.

Over the last 10 years Aaron Laurence, the inventor of the YBell, trained thousands of people on Australia’s famous Bondi Beach. He was using traditional training tools, dumbbells, kettlebells and medicine balls, to create his own brand of high-intensity resistance training. As his member numbers grew, it became impossible to keep incorporating multiple pieces of equipment into his sessions. The solution to the problem was the YBell, one piece of equipment that does everything he was already doing and more! He can now add more variety to sessions, and programming is much easier—all with the same piece of equipment regardless of the user’s ability level. The YBell makes transitions between exercises quicker, which streamlines sessions. Set up and pack up are so much faster now. Necessity is the mother of invention.
