Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I bought this helmet online for $47.00 to be a cheap show helmet, as I was just starting to show.

Likes: It is a low profile helmet (I have a small head and I look ridiculous in many helmets :) ) and has pretty good ventilation.

Dislikes: I wore it to three shows. The first two, I had the helmet on for about 10 to 15 minutes. The third show I rode back to back tests and wore the helmet for about an hour. When I took it off, I had the outline of the liner imprinted into my forehead. I only had it tightened enough so it didn't slide back and forth. The next day, I had a visible and painful bruise on my forehead from wearing it for only one hour. I thought that the dial fit was a plus, but it turns out that a good fitting helmet without dial fit is just as good if not better.

Quality: The liner is cheap (very limited padding)and not comfortable at all. As for the quality, I only wore it three times, so I don't know how it would hold up.

Summary: I would not recommend this helmet. If I had to wear it, it wouldn't wear it for more than a few minutes. I wear a Del Mar schooling helmet for hours at a time and have never had this problem and it is less expensive.
