Strengths:    Review for the '09 V3: excellent paint (durable and clean looking), strong construction (has the perfect amount of flex but not too much, very comfortable, ventilates well, light (2.9 lbs.) especially for a MX helmet, extra visor and screw set, very high quality bag included, EXCELLENT value for the price

Weaknesses:    none so far

Bottom Line:   
awesome helmet for the price (if you can get it for 200 or less, it retails for $375) the best full face i've ever used, its DOT and snell approved so it offers more protection than a mtn bike helmet, it is still light even compared to mtn bike helmets (ex.- the rockgrdn blacklight is a mtnbike helmet advetised as being exceptionally light, the v3 is a MX helmet and weighs the same 2.9 lbs)

Strengths:    Review for '07 V3 Pilot.
Very light 2.9lbs. Great graffics. Great ventalation. Comes with top end bag and extra visor.

Weaknesses:    A little pricy but still less $ than a Troy Lee and has full frontal protection(DOT & SNELL).

Bottom Line:   
Just spent the first 2 days out with this helmet and have to say a good MX helmet is not that much heavier or hotter than any good bicycle helmet and the added protection is well worth a bit of extra weight. This would be great for any DH racer or serious freerider who must worry about high speed impacts.

Date Reviewed: December 26, 2002

Strengths:    -Bombproof
-Polythermal construction
-Comfortable, no stress on head
-Removable pads
-DOT approaved

Weaknesses:    -Kinda Heavy
-Pricy thing...retail is $350.00-400

Bottom Line:   
This is for the Pilot RC4, which is a little different than the regular RC. It's an awesome helmet. It is extremely strong and well constructed. I have had insane crashes where I think the helmet is totally trashed, then i find out only the paint is chipped off. It's a little bulky, but stregnths your neck muscles. If you're worried about your neck getting sore every time you use it, dont worry cause thats only for the first ride. I hit big drops and the weight is not noticeable after a few rides. Great helmet, but very pricy.

We rolled out in a hurry to get ahead of a high school mtb team of about 30. Barely into the ride and 2 courteou ... Read More »

Looking to replace 2004 Rockshox Pilot SL

I have a 2004 Trek 6700 21.5" frame with Rockshox Pilot SL. This bike does not have disc brakes, so very limited in what I can put on it. I do a lot of riding on road and actually do not have light trail/road tires on the bike right now. I did a light trail the other day and after the ride it se ... Read More »
