Superb fitting, light weight and low profile (even for a head as large as mine). Definitely recommend
I have had this helmet since Christmas, light, good fit and well ventilated. So good I bought another one for my son.
Due to the large size and shape of my head I have GREAT difficulty in finding headwear be it hats, motorcycle helmets, or, in this case, cycle helmets. Step up to the plate Bell Cycle helmets !!!!
I have for the past 7 years ben riding in Bell helmets for road and off road riding and found them to be PERFECT for me. On two occasions I totalled the helmet I was using due to pretty good off-road crashes and the helmet protected my head completely whilst absorbing the impact and splitting. So, when I needed a new road helmet I go straight to the Bell Range. I have up until recently be wearing the Bell Volt and found it to be an outstanding fit, well vented and very comfortable. I have to say that the Gage make the Volt seem very "old school" even though it isn't.
The volt came with a removable visor so I suppose that it could be used both on and off road, the Gage is very road dedicated and has no visor.
I received the helmet yesterday and rode in this morning to work (20 miles )- first wearing - and it felt as if I wasn't wearing anything; it's so light and snug that you just forget it's there. I did have to have a look at myself wearing it and to be honest, it not only feels comfortable but it looks damn good as well.
I can HIGHLY recommend this helmet to anyone looking for a smart, comfortable and at the moment, incredibly well priced helmet.
Stylish, light, fantastic fit, has an adjustable bit at the back, sits very well on the head and an amazing price. I didn't realise helmets could be so sexy!! The whole purchase process is hassle free with Merlin and product was on my head before I knew it.
