Caberg Freeride - Iron
Customer Product Reviews
This is by far the best open face I have bought in 40 yrs. Great fit, really comfortable lining, detachable is a bonus for cleaning we have all had a favourite lid that over time gets manky, problem solved with this one. The rust effect is cool and you don't look like you have a massive ball on your head when you wear it. I tried about 5 different lids before I bought this, some looked great until you put it on then instantly you look like pumpkin head thank god for amazon returns then I caught a review and gave the freeride a whirl Happy now
GOOD QUALITY/GOOD FIT
I bought a Caberg Stunt helmet from SportsBikeShop a couple of years ago and was impressed with the ratchet system for the strap (the best fitting system I have encountered) and the spot-on fit and thought I'd take the plunge with this open-face offering for use when riding the Can-Am F3-S. It fits well and looks good, too. I wouldn't wear it when ridng my MT-01, though.
Really cool helmet
Fantastic look and feel to this helmet, it really feels like surface rust. Unfortunately my head doesn't suit the shape, even tightly fastened a little pressure with my finger at the front and the helmet rolled back on my head a few inches so it would certainly have moved in the wind. I'm gutted.
Light weight summer helmet...
This is a really light weight helmet - very comfortable and easy to wear. Being open face the vision it offers ( even with visor fitted ) is amazing. Fit seemed 'normal'-Large was my size as with other helmets. Profile of helmet is very low...just the lid to wear on a Harley, retro or classic bike. It is a good looking piece of kit. Finish is excellent and the removable lining is one of the easiest I've come across to take out and refit. Only cons as far as I am concerned are that the chin strap feels a little flimsy ( it's not...just feels it) and is slightly too far back towards my throat. All in all a fabulous little helmet...if only for summer use since there's so little of it that it's quite chilly!! Using the easy to fit / remove visor does improve things slightly....but really it's more fun in full 'open face' mode. As ever, dealing with Sportsbikeshop was an absolute pleasure!
I'm not disappointed with buying this Caberg helmet online, which is a bit of a gamble size wise. I think the helmet measurements are bang - on so don't go smaller than your head measurement; if anything allow 1 cm as I did, for a perfect fit wearing my spectacles The rusty look is better than I imagined with it's textured finish. The quality is very good and the visa is excellent. As the helmet is new to me, I can't comment on how it will stand up to maximum use but to date I'm very pleased with my purchase and delivery, packaging and return policy.
I'm ancient enough to remember 1960's helmets and this lid really does catch that groove! I bought a size S which is a good snug fit on my narrow 57cm bonce and was really comfortable straight out of the box. First trial, a quick 50 mile blast on my rattily old Virago 750 and found to be exceptionally quiet, even more so for an open face. An optically good and quiet visor too, again a retro style and shape. Good lining, strap and quality of finish. All the usual first class service from Sportsbikeshop to go with this cracking deal. Well pleased!!
Great open face, so light
Love the design of this helmet. I wear it with my Vanvan and it suits it perfectly. The lightness is amazing, and it's a very good fit. Lining is plush and comfortable, and it's also extremely quiet. For £100 it was a great bargain. It's become my helmet of choice.
Great open face helmet
Have been borrowing friends full face helmet for some time. Was OK for a bit but needed a helmet myself. I was after an open face helmet. I see some very good reviews for this helmet on this site. When the helmet arrived it was very well packed in the box setup that SPORTSBIKESHOP.CO.UK use. Helmet wise it's a great lid nice & light & noise wise it's a very quiet helmet plus the clip on visor is a great idea if traveling in the rain or a lot of bugs about. Would buy again.
