Bottom Line:   

Just had my worst spill and landed on my head and shoulders and my helmet kept me from having to hold my brains in with my hands. All I have now is a torn up shoulder and sore neck and my skull is as good (or bad) as it was before...

Bottom Line:   

This is a very good helmet. I got it for a CHEAP price and they use them
in nationals and international races. I saw one at a downhill race. Get
that!!! It is a great helmet. Look for sales you can get them cheap.(Hey I got mine a REI for $40!!!)

Bottom Line:   

This is one of the great values in helmets -- especially since you can pick the Terramoto up for under $70 on sale from Performance (watch the catalogs). This was their top of the line until they introduced the Supermoto last year, but there's been no change in quality! Great helmet, good ventilation, good fit. Strongly recommended.

Bottom Line:   

This helmet feels great and feels awesome. The Roc-Loc makes sure that the helmet stays on your head. Ventilation is good as well. I was able to get last year's model at Performance Bicycle Shops on sale for $50. No sticker shock here!

Date Reviewed: November 22, 1996

Bottom Line:   

Is this a killer helmet or what?! It feel so comfy and secure, like a vice around your
head. The colour scheme is subtle, nothing a NO FEAR sticker or two won't fix.
A bit pricey though, but if you can afford it, go for it.

Date Reviewed: June 24, 1996

Bottom Line:   

I was given the Terramoto as a gift about one month ago. Although fairly
expensive, the helmet is very impressive. The 'Roc Loc' feature keeps the
helmet in place on jarring downhills, while the visor is fastened on with
special screws (as opposed to velcro or something). The ventilation of the
helmet has been great, and I have enjoyed being able to concentrate on riding,
rather than being bothered by a loose helmet. The color scheme is pretty cool

Anyone ridden both an El Chamuco and Terramoto?

Anyone here can give me insight as to the difference in ride if I switch from my Chamuco to the TM? I've had the chammy since '04 and have had it built with a pretty good AM setup, with both a Sherman Firefly plus and recently switched to a more XC type Float 140. Could put either on the TM and a ... Read More »

terramoto questions

I'm just starting to wonder about this bike. I'm looking for a long travel AM / light FR set-up. It seems to be a awesome bike. Does anyone have an thoughts on it, i would like to see some builds, and hear a little bit about it. ThanksRead More »


How much abuse can one take with out being built too heavy? Reason I ask is that I'm toying with the idea of getting rid of my Turner Highline and 5 spot and building just one bike that can do everything I can dish out. I don't go crazy big, that's what my dirt bike is for. The new bike will see tri ... Read More »
