- Pic Trabec – worth the money?
[not tried one] but good protection and a lid that fits means I will spend more on a lid. Sitting between sizes on a few made it hard. My current lid fits perfectly and offers some back of head protection (Spec Vice)[/not tried one]

Worth checking if the higher prices comes with a crash replacement policy like some do. If it works and you use it getting a new one discounted would offset the price.bobgarrodMembercrotchrocketMember
I just got a POC Trabec to replace a Fox which didn’t fit too well.
the harness is very adjustable – similar to Fox & Giros.
it feels lighter than the Fox, but that might be because I had to use a buff under it.
It sits higher (on my head, which is XS & round like a **** orange (yours might be different, naturally) so visibility seems better.
NB: it doesn’t seem to work with my riding glasses – so may have to trim the arms off them a little.
But it does work with goggles – which the fox didn’t.
On balance: worth it for me because it’s blue & fits – most other manufacturers lids don’t seem to get small enough for my pin head.Posted 4 years ago
Not so good if price is more important to you & your head fits lower cost brands.christofMember
Found this, £75.99! if I wasn’t getting married next month and going to California on honeymoon I’d of bought this myself!
If it fits well, then without a doubt its worth the money! You can’t put a price on your health!Posted 4 years ago
How about this? http://www.fisheroutdoor.co.uk//product.asp?category=490&part_no=HE4225MV5457&find_category=490&find_description=&find_part_desc= – seems to cover off what the POC does but costs a lot less cash…Posted 4 years agoH1ghland3rSubscriber
I’ve just recently got a Trabec Race to replace my Giro Xar.
It’s the first non Giro helmet I’ve found that actually fits on my huge, oddly shaped melon. Seems very well made, much better than recent Giro’s, the fit is definitely better, my head seems to fit in the helmet rather than the helmet fitting ‘on’ my head.
Retention strap isn’t as clever as the RocLoc but I find that I set it to the right tension and then forget all about it.
Venting is far better than it looks like it should be. Seem to remember Giro banging on about the Xen venting being specific to the lower speeds of off road riding, same principle here and it seems to work.
If it’s heavier it’s not so much that I’ve noticed.
SO to sum up my rambling. I’m well happy with it. 🙂Posted 4 years agomartinxyzMember
Dick, I’ve owned a trabec and didn’t get on with the retention system when wearing oakleys. It hurt my ears! That Carerra is an incredible fit. I have never seen so many folk trying one on and agreeing that it’s a great fit. It looks better on, than in pictures too.Posted 4 years ago
My LBS is selling them…I can’t afford to just buy a new helmet so I’m needing to have an ‘accident’…problem is, the thought of willingly skelping my head hard isn’t appealing…helmet on or not!
Think I’ll be getting a Carrera helmet when I finally have the cash…very comfy fit I found.Posted 4 years agobullandbladderMember
How about the new Bell Super?
I like the look of these – Trabec style, a fair bit cheaper and some nice features – I like the idea of the built-in GoPro mount.Posted 4 years ago
