new helmet time
I’ve been polishing my helmet and notice it has starting to delaminate, so it’s about time for a change. Its a POC Tectal MiPS it has been a great lid but fancy a change.
What do you recommend as a replacement?Posted 1 year ago
After the ratchet broke on my Poc Tectal, I went for a Giro Chronicle MIPS and really like it. It’s smaller, more comfortable and cheaper.
Strangely, I’m a XL/XXL in Poc sizing, but a M in Giro sizing!Posted 1 year ago
Just had an Oakley DRT5 delivered, feels really good and has some nice features.Posted 1 year ago
Eldest_oab just bought himself a Leatt DBX 2.0 – absolutely brilliant helmet for the money. Makes our Giro x2, Mavic x1, Bell x2 and 7 iDP x1 look cheap. Their own version of MIPS, light, reasonable coverage, reasonable venting, nice colour, really well made.
He is now looking at a DBX 3.0 – https://singletrackworld.com/2019/02/review-the-leatt-dbx-3-0-enduro-v2-is-a-transformer-helmet/Posted 1 year ago

Anything but a TLD as they are roasty !
Comfy liner mind
I bagged a Fly full face carbon recently which is super nice
I would probably choose a Leatt one next time or a Smith

Well, the usual response is something that fits is the most important factor.
I’ve been through a few helmets in recent years, most recent being:
– Bell Super 2 – reasonably comfy, well made, venting could be better, looks a bit clunky
– TLD A2 Mips – well made, lovely helmet bag included, very comfy (pads quite thick), gets warm quickly
– Bell Sixer – just got this recently as found one for a good price, very well made (best quality helmet I’ve had), comfy, a bit better vented than the other 2, some nice little features. Very pleased and would recommend if it fits.
I do get a very hot head and would love to find a really cool helmet, but I think this is just a pipe dream (I use a Kask Mojito on the road which is very light and vented and I still sweat buckets in it).Posted 1 year ago
Sports pursuit had some nice Met helmets for fifty quid or so a week or so ago. Not sure whether it’s MIPS or not.Posted 1 year ago
Another vote for the Specialized Ambush with MIPS and Angi.
By far the most comfy helmet I’ve ever had, really well vented and the Angi system is brilliant.Posted 1 year ago
^^^ I’m on my 3rd Ambush and also find it the most comfy and vented lid I’ve used. Has also saved my head a few times….well the first 2 did anyway 😀
Haven’t tried the Angi system yet as got the 3rd one just before lockdown.Posted 1 year ago
