FORWARD WIP is an innovative company whose mission is to create protective gear for watersports enthusiasts, reducing the risk of injury as a result of impact.
Indeed sailing, kite surfing and windsurfing are entering a whole new era, where high-speed flight requires a complete overhaul of the gear in order to be better protected. Thanks to extensive expertise in the development of innovative, high tech sports products, FORWARD WIP is contributing to the development of these sports by introducing greater levels of protection for those involved.
For years and since the advent of the foil, Forward WIP has been collaborating with and supplying a number of America’s Cup teams with protective gear.
For this 35th edition, the Franco-Swiss company has joined forces with Groupama Team France, as well as its crew of young talent, Team France Jeune for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup.
Using data from a range of specifications and trials of several prototypes, Forward WIP has finalised the ‘CrossOver’ helmet, which is used by the French team to provide protection, comfort and a lightweight feel.
The helmet has a clean, rounded shape with a snug fit for optimum aerodynamic performance, whilst satisfying the CE standard for skiing, a standard necessary for this high-speed competition where collisions can be violent.
