Date Reviewed: May 23, 2009

Strengths:    light weight, decent venting, comfortable

Weaknesses:    the front mouth part seems a little close and the helmet seems a little flexable, same as the 2005 full bravo comp model except graphics

Bottom Line:   
For the price (which is 80 in the us cuz things are way more expensive in canada, and my price was with a 30% discount) i would say it is pretty good plus i checked the website and they say the model up meets all these standards and dont say this one does, but the dirt lid meets thos standards and this helmet has way more eps foam so i think thier lying to make the model up look better. I probably would of got the fox over this one but i was in a major rush al least i saved 30$ though. good beginer fullface.

Strengths:    great looking, seems well made.

Weaknesses:    none that I can see

Bottom Line:   
great helmet for the price. I bought the white one with the gray graphics. I have not put it to the test (hope to never crash hitting my head) but It seems well made and very comfortable. can't complain for $70.00. I'm not into spending hundreds of dollars on a another helmet when this one will protect my melon just as well.

I give it 5 flaming chilis across the board!

Submitted by redrook a Weekend Warrior from Scotland

Date Reviewed: October 30, 2008

Strengths:    Cheap and very good value, good protection, perfect for beginners, Comfortable. Well ventilated.

Weaknesses:    Can get a little hot, not the light as light as pro models, but you get what you pay for. Never gave me any bother.
I like more subtle graphics.


Bottom Line:   
Make sure you get one that fits snugly otherwise your goggles will steam up and you'll go through 2 pairs of goggles and have to buy a new helmet before you realise what the problem was!

i.e. if you are a 58cm head, go for Medium 56-58 not Large 58-60.

Strengths:    Its a good helmet, graphics are awesome, pretty well ventilated, comfortable.

Weaknesses:    Visor graphics are fading because i've used the helmet quite a lot. Padding not removable so i wear a light bandanna, which makes it bloody hot in there. But great helmet

Bottom Line:   
Very good helmet, it does a good job at protecting your head, plenty of chin room.

Date Reviewed: September 3, 2007

Strengths:    - Cool graphics and styling
- Fair amount of vents
- Adjustable visor
- Quite comfortable


Weaknesses:    - Exterior coating on the graphics seems to peel off quite easily
- Interior padding not removable and seems like it wont be very durable in the long run


Bottom Line:   
This helmet is a great value. The first day I used it I landed quite hard on my face and it is no worse for wear. Make sure you get the correct size for your head and give it a couple rides to break in and it will become nice and comfortable. Some my find the face guard a little to close for comfort but once your hammering down hill it isn't very noticeable. There a many better full face helmets on the market but you probably wont find a better one in this price range.

Submitted by Mike a Weekend Warrior from Canberra, Australia

Date Reviewed: March 24, 2006

Strengths:    Cheap, comfortable, looks.

Weaknesses:    Sizing differs from the Full Bravo - myself & 2 other friends found the same thing, ie a Medium in the Bravo is really a Large in the Comp. We also found that the fit is tigher on the Comp model around the chin/cheeks...perhaps this is why we all opted for a larger size.

The peak sizes seem to differ between helmets too. Mine is ok in width & length but a mates was longer & not as wide - he would have prefered the wider peak, as being a bit longer made looking ahead more difficult.


Bottom Line:   
Does the job, looks good & is cheap. I only ride DH occasional & haven't really tried any other helmets. This is pretty good.

Submitted by Brian a Weekend Warrior from Michigan

Date Reviewed: September 28, 2005

Strengths:    Comfy, awesome ventilation, light compared to MX helmets I've had, saved my noodle from a good bashing on several occassions.

Weaknesses:    Breathing vents in front of mouth piece are off to the side and way too small. You get plenty of airflow going downhill, but if you're not going fast it gets hard to breathe. My buddy's Full Carbon Bravo doesn't have this problem.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome helmet as long as you're moving. When I hit the trails where pedalling is required, I grab a different helmet. This thing is too hard to breathe in if you don't have enough airflow. Other than that, this helmet rocks. I had a pretty fast crash head first into a tree earlier this year, and this helmet definitely saved my noodle. Awesome value, 4 chilis for the weird placement of breathing holes.

Date Reviewed: June 28, 2005

Strengths:    Fits very well, great protection, effective buckle, good graphics, durable

Weaknesses:    I typically get hot in the helmet

Bottom Line:   
For the price, the helmet can't be beat, by anything. You pay close to 40 dollars for a skate helmet, and the 661 Full Comp only costs around 5 to 10 dollars more than that. As a full face helmet, it does what it needs to, protect your head. I took a mad crash to the dome with it, and I got up and walked away like it was nothing. The helmet fits very, very well, provides good face coverage, fits well with any goggles, and has a durable visor and outer shell. It also looks wicked awesome.

Now of course its not as good as a Troy Lee Designs D2, but for the price you pay, you get a helmet that will save you a few times. Overall, a great helmet for a great price. Value is a definite 5 chilis, overall it gets a 4. Only thing I dont like is that I get toasty in the helmet.
