Date Reviewed: April 14, 2006

Strengths:    very light, comfortable, lots of room for big beak

Weaknesses:    haven't found any. Although I have the fiberglass version and have heard the carbon fiber one is fragile. Also the chrome visor was a bit flashy for my taste so I painted it black.

Bottom Line:   
Good helmet. Nice and cool. Very comfortable and stays in place well when bumping all over the place.

Strengths:    Very Ventilated, Light, Decent Looking

Weaknesses:    Not a very strong helmet, I dropped it from about 4 feet to pavement and the helmet is soo shot.It went trough the shell to the carbon. Its basically a cheap foam bike helmet with a carbon cover.

Bottom Line:   
The best value in a helmet but I think this year I'm going to buy one of those new THE Helmets

Strengths:    This is for the Carbon Model! It just plain rocks! Super super light, comfortable, lots of vents, seatbelt-style buckle is the best. Graphics are cool too.

Weaknesses:    None that I can find.

Bottom Line:   
Best helmet for the money. I have tried on many and owned several and this is by far the best one yet. At under $140 for the Carbon you can't go wrong. Put it this way since my DH team saw this on me, everyone wants one. Again, I promise you can't even tell its on your head.

Strengths:    Fit, protection, looks and ventilation.

Weaknesses:    Could have a "jaw catcher" like the D2 from Troy Lee.

Bottom Line:   
Great helmet, specially for the price you can get for. Carbon shell (if you get the carbon) looks good. Pretty aggressive helmet.

Submitted by Dirt Demon a Weekend Warrior from Las Vegas NV

Date Reviewed: April 25, 2003

Strengths:    Killer looking, light, google retainer on back, adjustable visor, good ventilation, removable padding makes for a no-stink helmet.

Weaknesses:    The chin strap seems like it is located a little too far back, causing a bit of discomfort. However, after a few uses, I have gotten used to it & don't notice it anymore.

Bottom Line:   
I am very happy with this helmet. I have the carbon fiber model. I was going to get the Troy Lee Carbon model, but saw this. What a deal! Vigor offers a great helmet at a great price w/ a crash replacement program. Get one!
