Charles Owen
GR8 Helmet
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Charles Owen
Model: GR8 Helmet
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I bought the GR8 from ebay for $279 with free shipping from The Fat Pony. It is about the cheapest I have seen it anywhere.

Likes: Great fit and not too chunky like the other brands out there. I borrowed a friend's GR8 to try and just fell in love with it and had to go and buy the black/charcoal one myself!! It has a low profile and feels really good. It also LOOKS great and is super safe.

Dislikes: The only thing I would add is extra ventilation..the much cheaper Troxel has really good (but visible!) vents. The GR8 has ventilation but it is hidden- stillsok though.

Quality: Very solidly made with luxe inside lining and padding. Very subtle and elegant for a helmet!No huge logos emblazoned everywhere either.

Summary: Would definitely rec. the GR8 to anyone jumping or just trail riding. ps. they come in pink too!
