Submitted by dharch a Downhiller from Livermore, CA

Date Reviewed: July 14, 2004

Strengths:    Fit, ventilation, and durability

Weaknesses:    buckle-the older style helmets had a double D ring that you have to loop the strap through.

Bottom Line:   
A great full face helmet. It's well ventilated and has a thick shell that will take a lot of knocks without cracking.

Submitted by soulrider a Downhiller from nor cal

Date Reviewed: November 30, 2002

Strengths:    Comfortable, good looks, breathes well for a dh helmet. I have the carbon one and it is very light. I like the 'seatbelt' chin strap buckle, it's easy to use with gloves on. This helmet fits very well, no movment, but it doesn't squash your head either.

Weaknesses:    I don't have any complaints

Bottom Line:   
I think this is the best deal you can find on a quality dh helmet. It is so much nicer than the Bell I used to wear. I was looking at the Troy Lee, but realized I could buy this helmet and a dh jacket for the same price. If price is no consideration, buy the Troy Lee, for the rest of us the Vigor is the best choice.

Bottom Line:   
This Helmet is great for downhill but it is not good for cross country. The helmet feels very safe i have never had to take full advantage of it. For cross country i use my my Giro E2.

Date Reviewed: March 19, 2002

Strengths:    The price is right! Fits like a glove, even thought it is a helmet, looks cool w/ the low profile back and bottom, light weight, relatively good visibility.

Weaknesses:    People look at it like a Diamondback, no respect. The thing is the product is great.

Bottom Line:   
This helmet rules. The price is awesome and looks good. It fits like a dream. I think it looks pretty rad too. If you are a shop owner or product manager, get in on Vigor helmets since their prices are amazing and their product is unbelievable!

Bottom Line:   

This is a great Downhill helmet. It is NORBA approved. It sells at a good price. It is also a full face helmet. This has a lot of nice features and has a lot of cooling vents. I recommend this helmet for every Dowhill rider or racer.This helmet rules!
