WHAT IS THE G35
After Cookie launched its certified full-face helmet, the G4, the shadowy figures in the Cookie lab were tasked to work on an
upgrade to the G3helmet. While initial discussions centered around improvements to the original, it soon became clear that there was a much longer list of features waiting to be realized, as well as learnings to incorporate about impact-protective materials used in the G4.
To understand the G35 you first need to understand the G4 …
The G4 helmet offers a unique set of advantages over helmets traditionally used in skydiving. The challenge set by the architects of the CE XPS72600 skydiving helmet standard asked for a helmet that would impact test under the identical velocity, helmet conditioning and head coverage of the already established air sports certification EN966 but added a snag test for the obvious differences in our sport. We will continue to develop the certified range of Cookie helmets as they offer critical safety advantages in our sport, both outdoors and in the tunnel.
The G35 project, however, gave us the freedom to focus on a lightweight,compact helmet that’s secure under the forces exerted
by skydiving at high speeds and when cameras are added. We wanted to design an integrated GoPro solution for a full-face helmet and a non-certified design gave us the chance to do just that. The G35 has a more traditional coverage profile but is lower at the rear compared to the earlier G3. This lower shell coupled with an external high-density foam area offers firm security while allowing the user in and out of the helmet easily. The most obvious difference between the G3 and G35 is a plate area in the top of the shell. This plate recess allows the user to easily customize the helmet between standard, tunnel (anti-scratch) and utility/camera, and includes pre-mounted internals for our patent pending camera release system. All that on a foundation of a G4 style EPP foam internal.

HELMET FIT AND POSITION
To perform properly, your G35 helmet must be fitted and worn correctly. Follow these steps to get the correct position and fit.
- Undo the clip beneath the chin and extend the helmet padding both at the back of the helmet and the chin. Place the helmet on your head while guiding the chin fabric underneath your chin.
- Grasp the buckle with your right hand and pull horizontally until the helmet liner closes firmly against the back of your head and neck. If the buckle is unable to be fastened or the helmet is too loose, you’ll have to adjust the fit using the internal line and anchor system shown.
- To make this adjustment locate the RED anchor near the right-hand cheek pad. Pull the anchor forward to expose the adjustment line. To adjust, shorten or lengthen the anchor point on the line by moving the anchor in or out depending on your requirements. Finally, tuck the anchor and excess line back into the end of the check pad.
Removal of the helmet visor will assist to more easily handle the helmet while you remove or replace the liner. 1. Remove the buckle from the strap
2. Slide the side clips downward in their slot to release.
3. Slide forward the 2 front cheek clips to release
4. With your thumbs press the chin at the edge of the helmet to unsnap the 3 front chin clips 5. Slide to release the chin strap end clips
6. Remove the crown and skirt from the helmet velcro and remove liner completely
Before using the visor for the first time after purchase, remove protective film. To open place your fingers against both side plates as shown. Push the side plates forward to unlock and then rotate upwards to the open position. To close the visor, simply rotate the visor downward and it will automatically lock into the closed position
Changing the visor.
It’s important to remove and replace the visor with the visor in the closed (locked position). Completely remove all 4 screws (2 on each side plate). Pull both side plates from the helmet and push the visor forward and away from the helmet as shown. To reassemble, slide the visor onto the helmet from front to back as shown. With the visor pushed firmly against the rubber seal attach the side plates making sure they locate on the pin. Replace all 4 screws and check screws periodically.
CHANGING THE TOP
Remove all screws using the 2mm hex key tool provided . Note that the utility plate has 8 screws, while the standard and skid plate have 6. If you’re using the GoPro roller mount you must remove this before you’re able to remove the utility plate. Please assemble screws hand tight and check periodically.
