The Zuma is a very sleek and stylish helmet with looks that we prefer to the louder, more expensive Actyum.
The fast lines are backed by a good fit and the 21 vents provide enough cooling for the majority of rides. Unlike the Actyum, the Zuma foregoes an internal meshed bug net and as a consequence feels cooler.
The Zuma has a solid feel. The in-moulded outer shell extends to the underside at the rear but not the front, but even that extra protection at the rear is a bonus on helmets at this price.
The smooth pads, straps and trouble-free adjustment enhance the wearing experience. The straps also have a chin pad for a bit of extra comfort. The wide cradle at the rear is adjusted via a big red dial and it’s easy to use while on the move. The optional visor is suitable for road use but mountain bikers will want something bigger.
The Zuma is a classy looking helmet for the price with a good level of features, build quality and a shape to fit most heads.
