I have a fairly egg shaped head, most MTB helmets look stupid on me and sit up high on my head. The Cyphon fits perfectly, its fully adjustable for depth so it does not sit high on my head, where most did. The adjustment knob to make it tighter is so easy to use and release, comes with additional padding if you need it. Its pretty light and has great ventilation. I was gonna go with a Fox Flux or Giro but this beat them when it came to style, comfort, and most important price! Get yourself one!

Strengths: Great air flow, Great look, Sturdy feeling, BOA
Weaknesses: XL is tight near the back of the helmet where the BOA system drops down.
I love this thing!!! Aside from it being slightly tight on the back of my huge mellon, the helmet is awesome. I rode with a bell helmet for a long time, and the very first ride out with this one my head felt 5 to 10 degrees cooler due to the huge air intakes. Also, the visor stays low, but not too low to help keep some of the sun out of your eyes. Overall, it is a much much better helmet for any type of riding than the traditional looking cycle helmets.

Strengths: The Pro-tec name is all that needs to be said. The lid is a multi bash and keeps on goin. Very cozy fit with ample ventalation for hot days or hot trails. Inner pads direct sweat from the eyes. The fit system is the most simple I have used in a long time. Plus it looks so bad ass!
Weaknesses: A little heavy for racing, but awesome for freeride, urban, dirt jump etc. None other weak spots so far...
Great helmet you really get what you pay for. Awesome style meets inovation hand to hand. A sweet lid for any kind of riding
I'm interested in buying a Pro Tec Cyphon helmet, but am having a hard time finding any shop that sells them. I skate with a Pro Tec skate helmet and really like the fit, and was hoping that the fit would translate to their Cyphon MTB helmet. Anyone out there know where I might be able to get one? ...

Anyone see it?
How's it look?
Saw on their website for 07 that they abandoned the s/m & L/XL in favor or sep. S/M/L/XL sizes. (Thankfully as I could never fit into their L/XL...maybe the new XL size will fit me.)
Visor could be a little bigger imho. (Hey! a ... Read More »
