English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Aegis
Model: Caladesi
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: / State Line $59.95, MSRP is $64.95

Likes: It's very lightweight It's washable. It looks great. The matt rubberized finish and stainless mesh makes it look like a far more expensive helmet, the shiny decoration center line adds some looks value too. It's inexpensive for its looks.


Quality: Quality of construction is not that great either. It is sealed in at the bottom with what looks like electrical tape that you can peel off with your hand. The back emblem is stuck with cheap rubber glue (could be snapped off easily) The front emblem is riveted in - but is not straight. The stainless mesh doesn't look too sturdy either. Velcro look like it will wear out in a few months because. What has happened to American products? (Oh yes, did I mention it's made in China?)

Summary: I have ridden schooling helmets by Troxel and IRH that cost $25 and provide better protection and comfort. True, they are not as beautiful, but what good is a beautiful helmet if it provides no protection and can't be mounted in comfort? The sad thing is that this product has so much potential - it is beautiful, lightweight, washable and looks expensive but a little bit of testing and comfort improvement could have made this the bests helmet one can get at this price range, but as it happens in corporate america, someone seriously cut corners or was in a hurray to start marketing it. I cannot believe this would have passed any test group successfully as it is. I really didn't expect such discomfort and unthoughtful ergonomics from Devon-aire. Back to the drawing board...
