Is my helmet heavy ??
#1
So the helemt I bpught off CRC arrived on Monday but I'm undecided whether to send it back or not. Dont get me wrong its a great helmet, fits well, nice & comfy but going on what others have said it may be slightly heavy. It weights 1.4Kg albeit it doesn't feel that heavy when wearing it, but I have no experience to compare that with. Is there a detrimental effect of a heavy helmet & is it really only when your going over rough terrain you notice it    Undecided

I have never really thought about the weight of mine, but in the basis that my white Rebas weigh about 1600g i would say that you have bought a very heavy helmet....or you have turned to downhill racing. What is it?

A quick search shows a Giro Xen to be about 400g....i think.

If it feels comfy and doesn't feel heavy to YOU does it matter what it weighs? I've never weighed mine, perhaps I should!? Mine feels good so I don't care if its 2Kg or 1kg.

Are we? I thought Lagging was a 100% XC man. Mind you, as a man who has put a helmet through its paces I say take all the protection you can.....thats not prison talk either.

Why do you need a helmet for installing kitchen units?

Yep, its a full faced one to protect my good looks when we go to Wales in April... Spare Christmas money & nothing much to spend it on

Full face on the xc trails will be soooo hot......

If you want something with more protection for xc get one like this which I think Nigel uses, those proper full face ones just wont work for xc... http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Model...elID=17687

We saw a number of people using FFH in Afan in September and the weather was warm. The way we rode too was very stop start so lots of time to take it off and cool down. I'm def taking mine too this trip.
