Strengths:    Does the job; looks good; 9 buck at Jenson

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Great helmet. Does the job. It comes with 3 levels of padding so you can get it fit just right for you head. Nice color options too. For $9 at Jenson, you'd be nuts not to stock up.

Date Reviewed: May 26, 2007

Strengths:    Cheap, looks good, solid protection, awsome fit.

Weaknesses:    Foam will separate from the hard-shell after a while, but after its on your head, it doesn't move. Just glue it back in and your all good.

Bottom Line:   
Good helmet at a great price. Recommended for all riders on a budget. Unless your a hardcore XC rider, this helmet offers good ventilation, and isn't to hot for trail rides, while still remaining burly enouph for freeride. Buy one.

Date Reviewed: March 17, 2007

Strengths:    Fits well as it comes with a number of different sized pads to put in it, wide edges to protect skull! looks cool

Weaknesses:    Not much really, except becomes very sweaty when using it after a bit. Straps loosen off gradually and you have to tighten them

Bottom Line:   
Great fitting helmet, looks good, although gets a bit sweaty, recommended, try one on before buying it though i tried many other helms and this one fitted me the best

Date Reviewed: February 26, 2007

Strengths:    ventilation, is great for a skate style type helmet. I took a big hit on the head. I got rocked hard. However, the helmet had little more than a scuff.

Weaknesses:    padding

Bottom Line:   
Price ok. Ventilation is good & there is a good color selection. Also easy to find. Even Sports Authority carries them.

Submitted by Aaron a Weekend Warrior from Rainier, OR

Date Reviewed: July 23, 2006

Strengths:    Price, Style

Weaknesses:    Ventilation, Weight

Bottom Line:   
Not a bad helmet, especially considering the price. I like to use in in the winter because it insulates well. Not so good in the summer, just too hot. I like that I can toss this helmet around and not worry about it getting ding'd up.

Submitted by bryn a Racer from Dead City

Date Reviewed: February 19, 2005

Strengths:    beefy
not too heavy
lots of colors to pick from
cool looking vents


Weaknesses:    strap system could be more dial-inable
loud about the ear area when I'm going fast
ok maybe a little heavy


Bottom Line:   
I just happen to think the BMX/skate style helmets look way cooler than roadie/xc helmets and whatever gets you to rock one is cool. These things are pretty cheap as well...hell, you could buy three or four for the price of a pneumo...one to match each of yer bikes.

Can't decide between Fox Transition Hardshell or Bell Faction Helmet... Opinions?

Well as the title says, I can't decide between Fox Transition Hardshell or Bell Faction Helmet... Opinions? Here in Ottawa, Canada they both cost about the same and I have tried them both out. The Bell faction seems to be a better constructed helmet while the Fox Transition seems to be lighter... I ... Read More »
