This helmet is very, very good quality. It saved me from serious brain and skull injury. I hit a lip from uneven concrete crack at 20 + mph and my Evolve bamboo GTX stopped cold. I flipped face first into the concrete........ massive impact!!! I broke my arm and have scrapes everywhere, but.... No bumps, wallops or tender spots on my noggin. NOTHING but a couple small scrapes to my nose and lip. I cannot believe it. The helmet took the blow. I would have had a serious brain injury, lost all my teeth, broken my nose and very likely could have died without it. I walked away and am forever grateful. I am ordering another right now. Friends....please ALWAYS wear your helmet.
Suffered a mishap in August of '16 where I was ejected off my bike. Initial impact was left rear area (occipital?) of my skull, followed by my left shoulder & upper torso, onto a concrete surface. Broke my left clavicle, damaged some ligaments & muscle, and turned a lot of soft tissue black & blue. Even though my head took the landing I suffered NO injuries there; no concussion, no loss of consciousness, no bumps, nothing. This helmet did everything I hoped it could do.
OK, so I have to vouch for this helmet because it just saved my life. I am an experienced skateboarder, arguably too old to still be doing this at 39, however. I was riding my electric skateboard at the park a couple days ago, and mistakenly hit the trigger while I was not ready for it. The board shot out from underneath my legs, causing me to fly back and bang the back of my head on the concrete about as hard as a 6 foot tall man can do.
Helmet probably saved my life, at the very least saved my skull from getting a crack. Had a bad fall off an e-board which took my head directly into the street. Helmet did its job. Bought the exact same Triple Eight as a replacement post accident. You can see the impact in the pics on the right front side of the helmet. The foam collapsed as it should on the right temple. Thank you Triple Eight!
Perfect fit (got the s/xs per Triple Eights sizing guide), very soft feel, comfortable and stable. Other helmets of this shape tended to make me feel top heavy while I was riding and slid all over the place on my head because they were never quite the right fit. This helmet is super comfy and I feel confident it will keep me safe. It was also much cheaper through Amazon than through Triple Eight's online store. If you are ordering though Amazon though, this is VERY IMPORTANT: Before ordering, go to Triple Eight's website, locate the product page for the EXACT helmet you want to order and follow their sizing guide. Different models of helmets have difference sizing guides, and for all the products that I have ever bought from Triple Eight (helmet, slide gloves, knee and elbow pads) their size guide has been spot on.
This helmet is worth the money. Custom fit, amazing selection of colors, and just seems like it will last a long time.
Nice helmet! I wear a 7 1/2 in hats and the L/XL fits perfect. Awesome looking helmet, and I don't feel like a dork riding with this one. Haha. If I could go back and make this purchase again, the only thing I would do is get the moisture wicking model(pads).. because I can get pretty sweaty cycling in the L.A. Summer heat.. still, great buy and the price didn't hurt my wallet. Buying one for the girlfriend next.
We have had this helmet for almost 5 years now. When I first bought it, my kid’s head circumference was within the range of the XS/S. Now, 5 years later, his head circumference is still within the range. However, this helmet does not fit him. No matter how we adjust the straps, the front of the helmet always sits at least 1-2” behind his hairline. It does not stay “2 finger widths above his nose” as is recommended for proper fit. What good is a helmet that doesn’t fit?
I commute to work on cycle, in the summer ive been using a Giro Helmet, as its gotten colder and darker i wanted something with less vents because of cold air and with more protection.
Using my bike a lot more now and thought it wise to invest in some protection. I didn’t want anything that looked to nerdy and this helmet looked exactly what I was looking for. I’ve got an odd shaped head and hats / caps etc often look silly on me, but I am very pleased with this item, I had the 58mm size and although just a little tight, the padding will settle and I’m sure it will be fine.
Used as a cycle replacement helmet. The “rubber” description is a bit misleading and could put people off. It’s not made of rubber, it’s a rubberised plastic shell.
I have a large head and thick hair and was concerned it wouldn't fit since I usually have problems finding a hat or helmet my size.
Top notch helmet. Very comfortable and friends tell me it looks good which is more than can be said of what goes in it!
This is a great helmet. Only grip is it seems to be "taller" than what it shows in the pics. Or maybe it's just my weird head. Yeah, probably that.
I've added some photos as I think it will help you decide. I wanted a bright colour for visibilty which covers a larger portion of my skull, it's lightweight, fits my head well using the sizing guide in description, and the outer shell feels sturdy. Easy to put on and remove and has ventilation holes for airflow. I would recommend. Sunglasses fit well with helmet on.
Excellent. Use this whilst mountain biking as I like the sense of safety this style of helmet offers. Its light and feels very sturdy
Great fit and lightweight, could not fault the helmet in any way other than the unsightly triple eight logo that adorns the rear of the helmet which is not shown in any of the photos.
Love this helmet! Quite unique and makes me stand out. Feels comfortable and fits well. I can recommend.
Great fit, check sizes, yep, very happy with this, bought for urban cycling, good comfortable chin strap, very light but it's good for impact protection, cycling is dangerous, buy a good helmet, that's what this is!
Very light and pretty.
Been wearing this helmet while riding my electric scooter for the last few months. The L/XL fits me well. Usually I find large hats and things still too small for me. I don't consider myself to have a massive head or anything though. But this helmet works well and it has 2 sizes of padding. I actually used the thicker padding so that it would have less movement. Comfortable and feels like good protection.
Delivered a day early direct from Kate’s Skates. Fit is superb looks great and was brand new in box. Great seller of a great product. Tony Hawks wears one so what do you expect. Brilliant!
Awesome helmet. Had an accident recently where I broke my arm falling off my skateboard at 30mph into concrete. My head struck the concrete at the same time as my arm, but the helmet saved my head. Hit my head pretty hard too. What a great helmet! It would've been a different story without it.
