Full Face Helmet advice.

Postby andymc06 » Thu Jan 10, 2013 21:00 pm

Has anybody got any experience of the following FF helmets?

Bluegrass Brave (2011 model)

THE Point 5

I am anticipating going to Aston Hill and Antur Stiniog at some point and hopefully the Alps next year.

I have ordered both from CRC at very good sale prices. Subject to fit, weight etc I will choose one and send one back. I would be interested to hear some opinions on them if anyone has any previous experience?

Cheers

Andy

Send the one that fits the worst back.

Only you will know which that is.

Why does he need to ask us anything then if he's going to try them on and send one back?

Er because you may have previous experience of these helmets and can offer an opinion as clearly stated above!

My thanks to Cooldad and Nicklouse.

The most important thing is fit, and I can't tell you which is going to fit best...
