Wanted: a protective helmet pod suitable for a lazer road helmet. Will pay around £20.
Making up one third of the ZeroRH+ helmet range (along with the ZR and the recently reviewed ZW), the Zero RH ZX Helmet promises premium head protection with good looks and build quality to match.
The ZX is available in two sizes; S/M (54-58cm) and L/XL (58-61)cm. With a head circumference of 56cm, the S/M fitted me perfectly - benefiting from the offering of narrower sizing brackets compared to cheaper alternatives. This helps to give the helmet a nice close fit that is apparent in both looks and feel.
I know I'll get a little stick for this, but I've just pre-ordered a Giro Air Attack Shield, and am wondering if its legal to use the visor in normal road racing. I've seen a picture of David Millar in the prototype in the Tour (http://sicycle.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/5972168304_33b32ee410_b.jpg) but can't find anything in the UCI rules that expressly forbid them (BC rules didn't have anything specific either)so if any of you know the answer it would be much appreciated.
I'm in the market for a new helmet, my issue is the LBS near me and any others in the area only sell a very small selection.
I'm changing from a Boardman lid that's about 3 years old. Due tot he size of my head (massive apparently) i would like a low profile one. I have only been able to try on the kask mojito and a couple of spesh lids. the kask didnt look too bad.
I'm just wondering if anyone else has the same mushrooming issue and what they went for or what was the lesser of a few evils.
The Met Xilo helmet hails from the Italian brand's 'active' range aimed at budget conscious sports minded road and trail riders who want a lid that will perform in both contexts with nominal compromise.
Frankly, for the money I'm seriously impressed - but a comparatively shallow cradle gave the sensation of it being perched atop my head, so I'd strongly recommend trying before buying.
Bell's Sweep helmet is refreshingly different and an excellent choice for road racers who enjoy competitive mountain biking but want a single, lid with nominal compromise. Riders expect something very special for one hundred quid, especially in the present economic climate. So how does it hold up?
