Sport Helmet
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Troxel
Model: Sport Helmet
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I actually didn't buy this helmet, but borrowed it from a friend after I went to her place to ride and discovered my helmet was still at home, on the couch, where I put it because I *knew* I wouldn't forget it there. After looking through some local Canadian catalogues, I see that it generally sells for around $50.00 without taxes.

Likes: It's a helmet. I always wear one when I ride because I happen to like my head.. and if I didn't have one, I couldn't ride! (Note subtle promotion of helmet wearing above).

Dislikes: I hate to sound like a broken record, but you get what you pay for. It looks like a bicycle helmet.. and feels like a bicycle helmet. The nylon strap is, I guess, supposed to be a 3-point harness, but it doesn't do a great job of securing the helmet to your noggin. The inner material looks like styrofoam (with the exception of a very thin, narrow material band around the inner edge) so it slides around quite a bit. The brim is also fixed higher then it should be, which looks a bit odd - both if you're looking out from under the brim (as the helmet wearer) or looking at the helmet on someone else. It looks like an after-thought.

Quality: In all fairness, Troxel is a great name in helmets, but I think they really fell short with this one. It does meet current safety standards, but in my opinion, it doesn't make the helmet wearer feel safe and confident about what's on their head. While I didn't suffer a fall while wearing this helmet, I would be nervous about falling with it on as it doesn't seem to offer much protection.

Summary: If I needed to go helmet shopping again, I'd save up a bit more and get something like the Troxel Legacy Gold helmet..
