  • New GPA helmet style

    Have we all seen the latest helmet style? I don’t see how it stays on your head, but it must have passed all the tests. What say you?

  • #2
    Different looking eh. I wonder if the chin strap has to be more snug than a traditional style helmet. If it’s too loose I could see the helmet being pushed back if you were to fall face first.

      Found it......it’s holy expensive! Seems to be based more on Motorsport type helmets! And they say it meets a new European safety standard along with cervical protection. The chin strap,appears to not be able to be loose as the harness is rigid and ends very forward! I don’t fit GPA helmets, but am interested in how this is apparently more stable!

          Lol $3000 for a helmet that looks like a platypus.
          Talking to some people is like folding a fitted sheet.

                    I see these style helmets all the time when I’m watching the Longines Western European League. I don’t really understand how they can be any safer/better. Looks like just another excuse to charge even more for a helmet.

                      Can you imagine falling and having to replace it?! Although I suspect that's not a big deal for someone willing to shell out that kind of $$$ in the first place.
