Trail Helmets | Selecta


GIRO FEATURE

With the release of their Semi MX lid over a decade ago Giro were really the first to blend a piss pot with an XC lid, but it was so far ahead of its time that it never really took off. This Feature is pretty much just a modern version though with extra refinements like the adjustable retention system. Details like the angle adjuster on the moto–style peak remain, and although the number of vents is low they’re well designed and work well. Lots of protection at a good price.

Price: £69.99 Weight: 338g Sizes: S, M, L www.madison.co.uk www.giro.com

POC TRABEC

We love the unique styling of POC lids, but more than that we love their drive to offer the best possible protection. A serious amount of multi–impact EPS foam goes into each helmet and then this is reinforced further with aramid filament. The Race model sees an increase in aramid reinforcement, and then the MIPS version has a system that reduces rotational forces to the brain. Coverage is of course excellent and the retention system gives a great fit. Bombproof.

Price: £140.00 (Race £160.00, Race MIPS £200.00) Weight: 343g Sizes: XS/S, M/L, XL/XXL 2 Pure 08448 112 001 www.pocsports.com

MET KAOS ULTIMALITE

Met have gone all out to make this helmet as light as possible without sacrificing protection, and they’ve even included minimalist Kevlar straps. One of their other main aims was to offer great cooling and they haven’t just done this by using lots of vents. They’ve also minimised the contact area (if it’s touching your head then your head can’t cool) and included some unique gel pads at the front. It might err more on the XC side of styling, but it still offers a good amount of rear protection.

Price: £119.99 Weight: 285g Sizes: M, L Fisher Outdoor Leisure 01727 798 340 www.met-helmets.com
