thought it was a misprint when I saw this Downhill Mountain
Biking Helmet for $40 over at JensonUSA.
I found it in their closeout section. After reading
the description and thinking, yes, I hate small helmets
that don't fit my 7 and 1/4 hat sized head, and yes,
I hate how my chin is exposed on other full faced helmets,
and yes, I hate paying $200+ for a downhill bike helmet
. . . I wasted no time in ordering.
usual, Jenson had the Azonic T-55 downhill helmet to
me in about 3 days. First things first. The helmet looks
better than the photos. I mean, it was well made, and
looked better than some of my motorcycle helmets, but
yet it weighs less. The fit was incredible. Very comfortable
and great protection around the jaw which opens up a
larger area for vision.
took the helmet out last Saturday on a 3.5 mile climb
from Tony's Grove to White Pine Lake, then down Bunchgrass
(all up Logan Canyon in Utah). The climb was with temperatures
pushing 90 and I must say the helmet was a bit hot.
Had to pull it above my face. However, during the decent
it felt perfect, held steady, and provided no loss in
visibility that I've experienced with other helmets.
line is you can't get a downhill helmet for this low
of a price. Especially one this good.
