The Equibrim is designed to be added to most adult size riding helmets.
It has a wired brim edge, so can be shaped as you wish
- western hat style
- general sun hat style
- or bent low down for more of a coolie hat sun shade
The Equibrim is designed and made here in Hamilton, NZ so you are buying KIWIMADE!
It's made of waterproof canvas and with a tight stretchy neoprene centre which allows it to fit most adult size helmets.
- The outer edge of the brim is designed to be hand shaped.
- It can be made to be shaped into three different styles - cowboy hat (curve at sides), Flat Sunshade (flatten out right around) or Coolie Hat (pull down right around for an inverted cone shape).
- A canvas shade flag can be sewn onto the back (by order only).
Installation: The brim sits down low right along the edge of the hat and the stretchy centre piece is then folded over for extra security.IMPORTANT NOTE: Pushing the brim ring centre down over some helmets may take some considerable force. This ensures that the brim is secure in strong wind. It is important that your helmet has a front peak to stop the canvas brim from slipping right down off the hat.
TESTED: Galloping down the beach on a windy day, the brim does not fly off your ADULT helmet if it is fitted correctly - the brim front edge does sometimes flip back with high wind pressure as the canvas is not stiffened and it is only the brim edge that is wired. It is easily adjusted back down.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN: Some have sewn decorative bands around this folded edge in "their colours" others have tied a scarf or secured a hat band belt around it - all this is done just to personalise your hat the way you like it.
Colours available: Tan Brown with Black Trim OR Plain Black
Note: The canvas used has a block out rating of 99%, and the UV warranty of the canvas material is 2 years.
