This helmets fits like a glove. My previous helmet didnt fit well even after adjustments and it moved a lot. The Xenon is a good purchase for its price and quality. I recommend this helmet to any biker looking for a balance with price and quality.

Date Reviewed: May 8, 2006

Strengths:    anything: comfort, ventilation, ajustment, look, light.

Weaknesses:    Expensive, too xc, but compared to my 661 full face comp, this is my mtb reinvention.

Bottom Line:   
Great Helmet, light, good protection for xc, many and big ventilation holes. This helment fits me perfect. Compared with other helmets in the same price range, it is the best. But remember here in Ecuador averything is too expensive, so a soso bell helmet cost pretty the same (+/- USD100). The best xc helmet, some extra protection as the giro xen would be perfect for more agresive riders. But for it intended use it is the best.

Strengths:    Looks,Ventilation,Lightweight,And their Quick turn Adjustment locks are superb.

Weaknesses:    None yet

Bottom Line:   
Im particular with a helmet that really fits.Im also a lot on its aesthetic looks as well as the fuction.I would also consider the price.I was contemplating on buying a Rudy Project ayron but our dealer here is less than helpful pertaining stocks and availability.The Xenon's quick turn knob is pure heaven,adjustments can be made in a sec.NO more saggy helmet.The 18 vents really does it's office.You can actually feel the breeze even at low speeds.Its fairly light,255 grams of headgear.In terms of durability, I have to crash test it first.I would recommend you guys to BUY IT! It's good value plus the quality..

It seems like you mtb people prefer LED instead of xenon, even if it consumes the same power. I think we have the same requ ... Read More »

Xenon strobes for rear light

Anybody use the emergency style xenon flashers for their rear light? I've been using mine on the street and it's wonderful. It Most vehicles leave me the whole lane where there's no bike lane, wow! Being so effective, it makes me wonder why they aren't so popular. Why doesn't anyone use them?Read More »

My low-budget Xenon lighting build so far...with pics. Still a work-in-progress...

With the days getting shorter (and the fact that I usually ride early in the mornings before work), I was forced to start thinking about lighting for my trail bike. A quick look at the offerings on the market and I just wasn't impressed with what was out there....at least not for the prices they are ... Read More »
