MT Thunder 3 SV Trace - Matt Black / Green
Customer Product Reviews
Value for Money
Second one for me (well my pillion). Good level of features and sharp safety rating for a relatively low price. I like the venting adjustments and the integral sun visor. Is probably noisier than a premium helmet and will need changing earlier being polycarbonate but will give a good base comparison when trading up
Not much visor/mouth airflow
Helmet seems good quality in places, good padding e.t.c. but the lever to drop the visor feels cheap and flimsy. You also NEED to put a pinlock insert with this helmet as there is a la k of airflow around the mouth and the helmet steams up very quickly and you can't crack the visor open a bit as it has 3 settings (1/2, 3/4, and fully open). With a pinlock insert the product is quite good but not without.
Quality of the product is 10 out of 10 , exactly as it describe and in the picture. Sizing was correct as the description. The item is very comfy to wear. Excellent choice will reorder. Excellent service from buying to delivery.
As the title suggests this is a very good helmet for the price. It's comfy, good build quality, sun is effective as are the vents and and the strap is easy to adjust. The downsides are there is a roar at higher speeds, even with pinlock fitted there is a small amount of misting because the breath deflector is too short the latch to raise and lower the sun visor isn't the easiest to use with gloves on. But overall I wear it every day without any real difficulties and its solid value for the money.
Brilliant helmet for a brilliant price
Very please with this helmet, before this I had a HJC CS 15 which is only about £10 cheaper, but the differences are plain to see and feel, the MT just feels better made, its more comfortable, blocks out more wind and road noise, the movement of the visor is smoother and less clunky, it comes with a built in retractable sun visor, looks more sporty and all this better stuff for just £10 extra. Best helmet I have found for the price by far. Also has a very good Sharp rating.
Thundering good for little money
I bought this helmet then changed it for a Large size, the service was first class. I was kept informed at. Every stage of my purchase, and delivered at exactly the time I was given. I will recommend to friends and colleagues. I have worn the helmet 5 times now the performance and quality for a budget helmet in my opinion will take some beating. I have previously owned a Shoei, the Thunder 3 Trace competes in every aspect.
Has a quality feel to it, but is a little noisy with wind buffeting. A good snug fit - i like the cut outs in the internal padding that makes putting on and removing my glasses easy. Ratchet buckle fastening to the chin strap is easy to use. The clear visor action was incredibly stiff to start with - the first time that I have had to " run-in" a new helmet! After about 20 rides it has got a bit better. I bought a Pinlock visor insert as an add on and it is very good.
Decided to buy a new crash helmet by MT as I have had one before which was very good. I only have a scooter for commuting so this is ideal for the money especially with the Pinlock and built in Sun Visor. It feels comfortable to wear and does the job for me.
Nice helmet at a good price
I ordered the Medium size and was a little worried it would not fit as I had read reviews of it being smaller than most Mediums. It was a tad smaller than my Bell(Medium) but still a snug fit, none the less. Lightweight and with a sun visor to boot, well made and finished to a high standard.
The helmet was very tight on my cheeks the first few times I put it on but I decided to see how it would 'bed in' if you'd like. After a week of wearing every day for around 2 hours a day it now fits perfectly and I'm pleased with the comfort of this helmet. I cannot compare it to more expensive helmets but for the price it definitely feels like a quality lid. A bit noisy if anything but a set of Gear gremlin ear plugs sorted that and the bright colour scheme will hopefully help me be seen. Being Sharp rated helped my choice of helmet. Order and delivery process was great as usual. Thanks.
The Crash helmet of all helmets
From Sunshine to Rain the MT Thunder 3 effect covers the above. A great sun visor and from front visor to protect from poor weather and road debris. The size is easy to understand. Excellent delivery and at a fantastic cost.
Great value helmet
Great looking lid, seems well made. Measured head as per instructions, but came too small. Returns very easy, and next size up fitted well. Built in sun visor is great although lever to operate it feels rather flimsy. For the money it's great!
An excellent buy
I have two other helmets, both size Medium...with this helmet, I had to buy a Large.... That said, once I had the correct size it is very comfortable to wear. A good fit and feels more expensive than it is. It has a good safety rating too, for a helmet in this price range. Recommended.
