Strengths:    fit is great, no wobble or fruit salad hat appearance like xc helmets, price is hard to go by, looks great

Weaknesses:    velcro to padding has come apart in places, can be a little warm sometimes but not really enough to bother me at all

Bottom Line:   
i like the protection, fit and appearance of this helmet. at 40 bucks aussie it was a steal and i feel much better riding through town than in a full face (cos i had no ther option and it sucked).

Strengths:    Nice looking for those who don't like the Lance Armstrong, spandex-racer, super-aero look. The SXP model is designed to take multiple impacts (i.e. you don't have to throw it away after a small to moderate crash). It is CPSC certified for bicycle crashes AND certified for skating impacts. More head coverage than a regular bike helmet. Round profile could theoretically be better in a crash (nothing for the helmet to snag onto and cause neck damage). Inexpensive, even at the full $40 retail price

Weaknesses:    Much fewer vent holes than a normal cycling helmet. Heavier than most bike helmets - though this is only relevant to weight-weenies - it weighs 450 grams versus 300 grams for my much more expensive road-racing helmet. It also has almost no adjustability possible - it either fits your head in the 3-4 sizes available, or it doesn't! There is no inner harness with a click-wheel like most normal bike helmets have. So you really, really, ought to try them on in the store before you buy one and accept that you'll have to pay $10 compared to buying online.

Bottom Line:   
While all helmets look silly to some degree (especially off the bike!), this one is a lot cooler-looking when you are dressed in street clothes. It won't make you look like a spandex-clad wanna-be racer, either. However, it doesn't have nearly as much venting as most high quality bike helmets. I haven't had it long enough to tell you if this is a major problem, but I'll try to post back and compare it to my other bike helmets in terms of warm-weather comfort.

5-chilis for value! This one is cheap, even at full retail, AND it can take multiple impacts, so it's not disposable.

Greetings from Boston! Any Uniglide folks out there or fellow Dura Ace peeps perhaps?

Hi! Greetings from Boston. I ride a Montague Crosstown, in the midst of some major upgrades. In fact, one of the reasons I joined today is because I'm swapping the UG body on my wheelset (DA7400/7402 with Mavic Open 4CD rims) for a compatible 7403 HG body but I haven't been able to find a LBS yet w ...

Circa 1984 wheels = Dura Ace EX options?

Good friends, With a mind to build a period correct set of wheels, I got my hands on a NOS set of Dura Ace EX hubs. I do not know which model, as neither the hubs nor the box identify them. The box says 36h, and they are 32h, so this may not even be the original box for these hubs. They ... Read More »

Dura Ace CN-7901 chain experience on mtb?

Wondering who is running a 7901 DA chain on their 9 or 10 speed systems, and how it's going for you so far. No reviews of it, and with the slotted plates and hollow pins, I have to say it looks a bit light. If you have experience with this chain on your mountain bike, please report. Cheers. -ERead More »
