Strengths:    Fit - it fits my head perfect. The medium was right in line with mediums of other brands (Pro-Tec BMX and Smith snowboard). Ventilation - I didn't even notice I was wearing a fully on my last downhill session. I think my head sweats more wearing my BMX lid. Style - I got compliments on the styling of the white one. Weight - very light weight. Again, I forget it's on. Price - got it for wicked cheap at hucknroll.com.

Weaknesses:    D ring clasp - not as easy as a clip, but if I loosen it I don't need to completely undo it to take it off and put it back on.

Bottom Line:   
Overall this is a great full face helmet. I feel safe wearing it because it fits well. I barely notice it's on because it's so well ventilated and light. And as a kicker it looks great.

Strengths:    Extremely light, not bulky, non restricting, quick release D-ring strap, well vented, offers a wide angle of vision, looks super badass.

Weaknesses:    Well hopefully none since I'm yet to crash in it. :)

Bottom Line:   
This is a super dope helmet at an affordable price. It's so light and has such a wide angle of vision that its almost like your not wearing a helmet plus it looks super sick and doesn't look huge on your head. If ya like it, buy it. You won't be dissappointed.

Strengths:    I know this is not the right forum for this, BUT does anyone know how to adjust the strap so it is tight under the chin?

Weaknesses:    Confusing Chin Strap.

Bottom Line:   
Appreciate the full face protection, BUT just wondering whether the chinstrap should be snug or not.

Date Reviewed: August 24, 2011

Strengths:    Price, design, comfortable, light and doesnt block view at all.

Weaknesses:    Can get a little hot on a good climb, but its perfect when flying down or doing some technical terrain. Just take off your helmet to cool down a bit, we all need a break.

Bottom Line:   
Arguably the best entry level full face helmet available for the price. All helmets break anyways so if your not a downhill guy, this is helmet is more than sufficient.

Submitted by ehigh a Weekend Warrior from San Luis Obispo

Date Reviewed: August 18, 2011

Strengths:    I found that this helmet is all I really need while riding more serious and technical trails. I'm not always hitting big jumps and drops, so I figured I wouldn't shell out all my money on a Troy Lee helmet. This is the only FF helmet I've worn riding, but I don't experience problems with it. Simple strap, helmet fits my head nice, takes crashes, looks fine, breathes well enough. I take it off sometimes to cool down, but I do that with my regular XC helmet anyways.

Looking to get some red spray paint and get some over-spray on the helmet by their logo to add a little detail.


Weaknesses:    The designs are a little bland if you're super concerned about that.

If you want something really fancy, I guess you could shell out $450 for a TLD D3 Carbon-but this helmet is all I need.
Funny thing about the D3 is it doesn't even get a DOT rating.


Bottom Line:   
Great helmet for the price. You could shell out a bunch of money for "better" helmets, but better helmets won't make you a better rider. better helmets save your head, but this still has the same rating as most entry level FF helmets. It isn't a motocross helmet, so don't expect it to be one.

remember, this won't save your collarbones

Strengths:    Lightweight, comfortable, will presumably protect my teeth in a crash

Weaknesses:    The graphics. The sun visor has a hard time getting low enough.

Bottom Line:   
Second time I used this helmet was on Porcupine Rim (started from Hazard). I really expected some comfort problems as I'm really only used to wearing a standard helmet (Giro Hex). Had NO problems at all except for forgetting I was wearing a full face helmet and spitting right into the mouth breather area. I really wanted to be :| with it but how can you not laugh at something like that?

I gave a 4 for overall because of the sun visor issue.

Strengths:    Lightweight, nice fit, best value + branded, good ventilation

Weaknesses:    At some point you can't tighten the visor.
my oakley crowbar MX goggles snug on the helmet instead of face, it's really a problem when crossing rock gardens


Bottom Line:   
I personally think this is the best entry level-wallet friendly-good looking-full face helmet
and it's 661 too, not local product, so you can wear them with confidence

as for the protection and performance compared to high-end model, I don't think there are significant advantages, they will all breaks. Injuries depends on how riders react as they fall, unless you're going 40 km/h heading straight on a tree and your brake fails

Strengths:    Lightweight, comfortable, easy on the eyes.

Weaknesses:    The face shield is pretty close to my face but that's probably because I have a big head.

Bottom Line:   
I wanted a full face shield that looked cool but offered protection as well as a decent price. This helmet meets all of my criteria. Plus it goes very well with my Oakley Crowbars. If you're looking for a full face shield for MTB then this is your helmet.

Bottom Line:   
just got the new version (2011) of this helmet. was concerned that a full face would be heavy and obstruct my view. neither of these are concerns with this helmet. it actually feels lighter than my avanti flow normal helmet. i am only just starting out with the bike thing, but i would recommend this helmet to anyone.

Strengths:    I have tried on most of the helmets (the specialized Deviant feels like you put on a medieval torchure device) on the market and this was one of the best fitting. It was also one of the lightest, especially for the price. I dont even notice it while riding. Great looks and ventilation.

Weaknesses:    The ONLY thing that I didn't like was I cant seem to figure out how to get the padding/liner out.

Bottom Line:   
I didn't want to get the same helmet as my friend (who also gave a great MTBR review on this helmet) but, after trying on all the helmets and doing my research, I dont believe there is a better helmet for the money. Light weight, great price, great ventilation and good looks.

I did get a different color :-)

great helmet for the price. it is pretty light. 984 grams on my digital scale for a small. inexpensive. comfortable fit. i lucked out on this one. just bought it online sight unseen. it fits my noggin great and is comfortable. no pinching or pressure spots. looks good and compares to $150-200 helmets. i can't tell much difference between this one and the more expensive ones. doesn't look like a 65.00 helmet. the only minor gripe is the air flow through mouth piece is not good but it is not really a big issue. very recommended.

Strengths:    Light, removable inner lining, heaps of ventilation, fairly cheap.

Weaknesses:    Graphics on the black one are abit plain.

Bottom Line:   
Its good value and good for the heat with all the ventlation. You also have a great degree of movement because it is so light(hardly notice its on). But I have not crashed with it so I cant comment on actual protection. *NOTE: Price is in Australian dollars (AUD).
