Elite Helmet
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: International Riding Helmets / IRH
Model: Elite Helmet
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I purchased this helmet at Triangle Horse Sports in Raleigh, NC on sale from the list price of $159.95 for $119. I had previously purchased the IRH ATH 5 vent helmet but was unhappy with the high profile so I sent it back. I purchased this helmet in the Black/Charcoal color, but it is also available in Black/Silver and Gray/Silver. It is also available at Dover Saddlery, as well as Smart Pak online.

Likes: Finally a helmet that doesn't give you "bobble head!" The Elite has a low profile with center, side and rear vents to keep you cool. It has a small visor and a nylon harness that is soft and comfortable. When it's buckled securely it does not pinch or irritate. It is made of some kind of plastic which is perfect for me since I was afraid a traditional velvet helmet would get scratched on trail rides. It wipes easily with a damp cloth.

Dislikes: Nothing! There is not one negative thing I can say about this helmet.

Quality: I feel that this helmet is well constructed and I love how lightweight it is. It came with a helmet bag and some additional sticky foam strips that you can place inside the helmet to customize the fit. The liner does not detach for washing, but the tag does say you can wash it with mild soap and water as long as you don't saturate it.

Summary: This is a great helmet for just about any discipline. I am very picky about helmet fit and I tried on every brand the tack store had before I decided on this particular model. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
