Strengths: awsome helmet. i stay cool even hot a 30'C day. vents well, cool colours (flame job) and the visor is good
Weaknesses: well, i dont have goggles, i never really found a reasone to wear them in manitoba, but apparently the goggle strap has nowhere to sit in the back because of the buldge. i say the strap could just go in the bottom half.. i dont see the big deal
sweet helmet, and its got a medium price.. so why not.. its pretty freakin light too.
Bike Setup: gt (but getting a devinci hucker) rockshox psylo, husselfelts.

Strengths: The weight, the design, the fit, and the vents.
Weaknesses: Haven't found any yet. The winter hinders on my ability to ride.
The bottom line is the helmet fits, looks, and feels sweet. The price quoted is in Canadina dollars. The vents was a big factor for me cuz I sweat like a leaky bucket. I love the colours of the helmet. It is black and looks virtually identical to the Troy Lee Designs black Hot Wheels full face. By no means am I comparing TLD with the LGI Buzz 2 but the look is virtually identical.

Strengths: actually a review for Buzz 2 -- looks pretty good, comes in a few pretty slick colors, mesh in the mouth vents (loox cool AND has benefits to keep twigs and most bugs out!), saved my sparkly whites on more than one occasion, one piece fiberglass, moderately adjustable visor, fits snugly
Weaknesses: HOT! temp wise golly, but then again it IS a DH lid, which comes with the xtra protection u get, awkward goggle placement -- they sorta sit on the bulge thing at the back,
for about 100 bux canadian it's a steal, fits more snugly than the bell bellistic and various other brands -- i wasn't much a fan of LG, but for once this helmet is pretty darn good, and there are actaully vents in the top -- no matter how small they are, every little bit counts!
if you have the money -- Troy Lee if you don't -- Louis Garneau if you wanna graduate -- SixSixOne Full Bravo Carbon
Similar Products Used: sixsixone full bravo (also very nice helmet -- especially the carbon fiber one *drool*), bell bellistic, Race Face, Troy Lee
Bike Setup: not that this has anything to do with anything, but Planet X -- budget/dream setup
Date Reviewed: March 11, 2003
Strengths: Actually reviewing the 2003 Buzz 2: Badass looks, decent weight relative to other DH lids, one piece construction, steel mesh vent coverings (to keep twigs from penetrating your skull - a good thing!), comfy padding, padding cutout to allow for the use of regular eyewear, kevlar-reinforced construction (kevlar is the fibre used in bullet-proof vests)
Weaknesses: Funky design has aero protrusion in the rear that might impede the use of goggles....might have to use tie wraps to secure goggle straps
Seriously, guys (and girls), you will not be embarassed with this wicked helmet strapped to your head this season, and you can laugh at your friends who spent piles of cash on Giro Switchblades, Mad Maxes, or anything Troy Lee (nice stuff, but overpriced)

Strengths: Cheap, Strong, Keeps your head cool, can take a whack and keep on chuggin, (believe me :)) strong visor, comfortable.
Weaknesses: Some problems getting correct fit.
Great helmet, well worth what you pay.. great protection for freeriding.. already put a nice chip in the visor, hit it very hard but didn't even come close to snapping it, strong. Very thick plastic outer shell, comes in handy for the little smacks.
A very good helmet worth every penny, BTW that is CDN dollars, paid $120 no tax.

Am I the only one that's noticed how much better a good beer buzz (or whatever your buzz-maker of choice is) after a good ride? And it seems the harder the ride, and the more beat you are, the better it gets. I'm hardly an alcoholic, and I always stay clean and sober during a ride, but I gotta admit ... Read More »
