helmets, feedback wanted !
Trabec didn’t impress me at all- bulky and heavy, and thinly padded. Didn’t fit either so it was always going back but I don’t think I’d have kept it regardless.
Flux is also bulky and heavy, but has better padding IMO, and the securing straps wrap more under the back of the head than most. I liked mine and crashtested it to death, but it’s kind of a good helmet despite its flaws, which makes it harder to recommend.
Haven’t tried the others, Feature looks ridiculously good value but wasn’t close to fitting 🙁 Fox Striker might be another to look at, it doesn’t have quite as much back-of-head protection as the Flux (but sits just the same as the Trabec on me) and it’s far smaller and lighter. Just feels every bit a better helmet.Posted 4 years ago

My lbs chappy has the blue one in s/m and is a wee bit small but is still a nice fit. Awaiting delivery of m/l 😆 the blue is nice, might even accept the green 😡
No i was lucky enough to be in Germany, they had 3 left all in S/M of course 😀
I sit inbetween S/M M/L (58) but fits fine, may be a bit tight when the hair grows 😆 but the retention at the back works a treat so may not be a issue.
And as for the colour, Blue looks nice but the green is not as bad as others i have seen, bit more duller if that makes sense.
The UK supplier is slacking behind, original date was first week of October and the new revised date looking at CRC is 25 Dec, which will probably move to Mid Jan which the shop i got it from are expecting the next batch.Posted 4 years ago
Yeah more of a dull fluorescent Green, wasn’t a fan of it but seeing it in the flesh changed my mind. Well worth the wait when they do come into stock and at a good price as well.
As for the 661 Recon, did anyone else have the problem with the 661 logo being imprinted on your forehead from the padding after a ride?? or was that just me.Posted 4 years ago
