AM / "enduro?!" Helmet suggestions/recommendations
So, after a face plant last week I’m in need of a new helmet.
Been using a Giro Feature for the past couple of years – thinking its a good reason to have a look around and possibly try something new, as always had giro’s for as long as I can remember!
Want something with good coverage/protection.

I crashed my Poc Trabec on Sunday so am looking for a replacement too, being a girl I liked the purple but this years colours are a bit meh, now I know it’s not everything, but being identifiable as female when out on my bike is nice! 😉 Am now looking at A1’s, not so keen on the design but like the Trabec is gives good rear coverage, and square on the back of my head is where I impacted the tree… Waiting to see if Poc will reply to my email first.Posted 3 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
On the enduro note, Steve Parr’s just confirmed that the UKGE will be mandatory full face next year so that might be something to bear in mind. Mind you, it’s not the first time.
I’m still using a Fox Striker, it’s not #endurospecificz but it’s good, and light, and well vented. Doesn’t have quite the coverage of some though still better than your average xc hat.
Every brand’s got a suitable lid now though. It’s difficult to make an informed choice on protection- some probably are stronger than others, some definitely do have better coverage but weight and bulk have safety risks too so hard to really judge the compromise you want to make.Posted 3 years agostewartcSubscriber
Got both the new MET Parachute and the IXS Trail (also owned a Super and 661 recon)and cant complain with any of them, as already said go and try some on as the fit does differ and go with whatever suits…and looks cool.Posted 3 years ago
One small issue I had with the Bell Super was I lost a viser bolt and could not get a replacement, it is a small issue but very irritating at the time.
Popped to the LBS at lunch – bit of a limited selection, so gonna shop around.
Tried a Bell stoker – much like my feature, as posted above – however it seemed really “wide” so not too sure.
Think another LBS about 10 mins away has some supers in so going to take a detour home.Posted 3 years ago
Tried the Bell Super at another LBS on way home – fitted well, liked it – (but not the colour they had in my size) so they’ve ordered the one I want in.
Now to get a go pro base mount to fit to my light unit for night riding duties! (Nice extra feature)Posted 3 years ago
