4.7 out of 5
August 15, 2012
Really happy I spent a few more bucks and bought this helmet. I've tried many others and this one is by far my favorite, but to be honest, it's mainly because of superficial reasons. Nothing really stands out about this helmet as far as features go (except the aramid filament). It is just as comfortable as most helmets, and of course that is based on your noggin. I really like it because of the looks and you the fact you don't see to many others rocking this helmet in my area. It's all Fox and Giro. Don't get me wrong, the helmet is really comfortable too. So...I'm going to comment on is what I was looking for in when reading through reviews on this helmet and that is how does it fit. Many don't have access to try it on first so they need to go by what others say. I can't tell you the shape of my head so I'll tell you my past experience. I've worn Fox Flux, Giro Phase, Giro Xar, and 661 Recon. In all those helmets, I 've worn a medium. So I bought a M-L in this hemet and it fits me just fine. My head measures 56.5 in circumference. The Fox Flux fit my head the best, most comparable to this helmet. The Giro Phase and Giro Xar fit my head well, but I had more space on the side between the helmet and my head. So this helmet fits more snug on the sides of my head. The Recon was kinda shallow on my head, maybe that was the design of the helmet. This helmet feels deeper and feels like my head is more protected. So I'm thinking if you have a wide head, this helmet might not fit you correctly. The only gripe I have is that the adjustment straps that go down the sides of the head, get in the way of my sunglasses. I wear Oakley Jawbones and I guess my face is short or something. I saw a picture on the web at biketart.com the person's jawbones didn't get in the way like mine. So it must be me. Overall, the helmet is worth it, and if I need to buy another one, I would purchase another Trabec. Yeah it's more expensive, but I think my safety is worth it especially when it comes to my head. Yeah other helmets are certified too, so I guess all I can say is that I'm a POC fan.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost

Normally, I would not write a review for a product after just one use but I wanted to share my positive thoughts about the Trabec in case someone is sitting on the fence about shelling out some cabbage for this helmet. the helmet is easily the most comfortable I have used; it fits true to size (m/l fits my 56 cm head), is easily adjustable, and is lighweight enough to not notice it during a long ride. The vents alsodo a sufficient job of keeping your melon cool on hot sunny day ride. I can't comment on the durability and hopefully will not have to. A bit pricey, but fits better than any other brand I have tried.Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use
Super light. Ready to crash!

Initial thought coming out of the box; dang you're good lookin. The size chart is spot on. I measured my head with a belt (not as directed) which correlated into the upper limits of the M/L. It's a snug fit just as the chart alluded. Stays on when riding, comes with a nice hat bag. No complaints other than the price....June 2011: lots of riding, lots of ramen.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost
