Date Reviewed: February 10, 2000

Strengths:    Its strong, looks alright, cheap, saves my face from my rather crap riding skills

Weaknesses:    Heavy, foamy bit wont stay attatched to the fiberglassy bit, peak is poo buy a big one quick or you will look like a tool

Bottom Line:   
For 30 quid you cant go wrong, offers more protection than my 130 quid lid but you pay the price in a hot head.

Date Reviewed: January 17, 2000

Strengths:    Very protective. Looks badass on the right person. Loks queer on a bumboy X-C'er. What the heck do ya X-C boys need a full-face helmet for anyway? just incase a fly hits ya and breaks your jaw? Sorry. Looks great, makes you look good. Saves your face. Cheap. What else can you say?? Great!

Weaknesses:    Only 2 sizes - problem. Bit hot (not half!). You can make a better peak with your digestive system. Which describes the peak quality. Dont like the system they use to keep it on. Scratches waaaaayyy too easily!

Bottom Line:   
The arse line is:

Great for they value! What else d'ya expect for £30??? Now get out of my store - and come again!! (apu, simpsons)

Submitted by Philip Onslow a Weekend Warrior from Edinburgh, Scotland

Date Reviewed: January 14, 2000

Strengths:    VERY cheap, full face offers max. protection, keeps your head warm in the Scottish cold, looks great

Weaknesses:    poor construction, mouth vents fell out, bad peak, bit heavy, two sizes only

Bottom Line:   
Absolutely stunning! This is the first DH helmet I have owned, and for the price it is excellent. Construction is bad, but the helmet is only £30. It is a fairly comfortable fit but there are only two sizes and I can barely fit in the large one. Good visibility, warm, although too hot in summer. It is a bit heavy, but that's better than having your face smashed up. Bob from N. Ireland DON'T talk crap! Maybe you don't have REAL dh courses over there!
