Carbon Fibre/composite Helmet

Recommended Posts

A while back I read an article about a new helmet manufacturer, carbon fibre, sleek design, but very light weigh.But now I cant find it again.

Anyone can point me in the right direction?

 

Cheers

I wouldn't waste my time with these helmets, the coast guard purchased a huge number of these for there technicians. They had to be returned 3 times for the wrong impedance and aircraft compatibility. Also, I had the opportunity to inspect 6 of the helmets and all had poor craftsmanship and quality.

What specifically did you find was poor about the quality Chopper Guy? Just curious as I'm looking at getting one myself. I talked directly to the dealer and from what he told me they sounded pretty good (obviously) but he also said they have a 30 money back deal... for any reason if a customer isn't satisfied they'll refund the helmet no questions asked.

Keep in mind I doubt they'll refund shipping and taxes, which is a fair bit of coin for a helmet...

One of the issue I observed was the hardware/fasteners used to assemble the helmet. Out of the six, none had matching fasteners. Some of them was protruding thru the teflon locking nuts as much as 1/4 inch creating a safety concern since it was protruding on the inside of the helmet. Secondly, the visor. The inside visor in a duel visor setup was contacting the rubber trim that is glued to the edge of the helmet. Therefore scratching the visor, this was found on the 3 out of the 6. Hope the last makes sense. Good luck!
