Our review

A top-flight, light and comfortable carbon lid with good features, but be prepared to pay a lot for one
Pros: Super-soft padding makes this one of the comfiest full-face helmets I’ve tried; low weight helps it go unnoticed when riding
Cons: You’ll need deep pockets to buy it; no peak adjustment

The LEGIT Carbon is Bluegrass’s new top-end downhill/enduro lid. Its carbon fibre shell, EPS liner, MIPS brain protection and injected PU foam lining mean it exceeds all safety certifications.

It’s also one of the lighter DH-certified full-face helmets available, at 1,082g in a medium.

The thick padding is exceptionally soft, though I did find the fit pretty snug, so would recommend trying before buying. It’s removable too, so you can keep the helmet smelling fresh.

I’m a big fan of the traditional double D-ring closure, which is secure but still easy enough to do up with gloves on. Airflow is good through the 15 small vents, although you can still expect to get hot when pedalling hard.

All the goggles I tried worked well with the LEGIT, and I like that the peak is held in place by three pop-in lugs, so it should easily break away should you hit the floor, to help you avoid twisting your neck.

Although the peak isn’t angle-adjustable, I didn’t find it disrupted my vision.

With four colours available, you should be able to find a style of LEGIT that suits you — if you can afford the £400 / €450 price tag.
