Caberg Duke II - Smart Black
Customer Product Reviews
Good value for money
Great helmet for the money, I bought it as a second lid to use for touring. Good quality and the 5 star safety rating is great. It was comfy straight out of the box which is why it picked over other similar helmets. I did a 500 mile trip up to Scotland with it straight out of the box with no problems
My favourite helmet
Comfy, great visibility, P/J certified. Sun visor very effective. I gave 4 stars due to the lack of the more effective ventilation system (no air outlet on the back of helmet). That is why this helmet might be a little too warm in the temperature around 20 degrees. But value and quality of this helmet is really good.
Excellent Overall Package
I was looking to replace my Roof helmet. I gravitated towards this initially due to its Sharp rating. It's light,Fits well and is astonishingly cofmortable. The ability to use it on the road in both configurations is perfect for mixed distance riders. The gloss finish marks quickly (the inside of the helmet where the chin bar swings down marks very easially due to the mechanism,but it is also hidden with the chin bar down.Visor also has quite strong adjustability to negate fog buildup but you don't overly "feel" the air flow inside the helmet from the vents For the price,You will struggle to find anything of similar value and buld quality,and I heartily reccomend this Helmet.
My 2nd Duke, bargain sale price. Couple of small issues..for the internal sun visor not to be in your eye line you need to pull the helmet down so your chin will be touching the inside.also the chin strap will be at your Adams apple. If you are not using internal visor(defeats the purpose)won't be an issue. Either way it's no arai quality lid but good value
Bargain helmet, decent quality.
I've only used this a couple of times on the bike so far but I also wore it for an hour straight in the house before deciding to keep it. For me it is superbly comfortable. It just feels as though it was made for me. Out on the road it's really quiet with little air flowing through, feels almost sealed(which I like). I ride a bike without a fairing and found my old lid had severe buffeting especially behind vehicles. This is massively reduced on this making a run in traffic so much more pleasant. I've given this 4 stars as there are a couple of small things that could be improved. My chin sits close to the chin bar as others have said. There's a little indent in the chin bar to allow for this. It doesn't touch normally. Also I wear an XS but this lid is designed to accommodate up to XL. This means it looks a little big on me and to start with felt a little top heavy. The padding around the cheeks is a little too soft also. Overall excellent value even at the upper price of £200. I paid much less on offer. Also Sportsbikeshop are fantastic. I ordered a S originally as I measured in the lower range for this but it was too big. Swapped out with no hassle. Highly recommended from me.
A1 Caberg Duke Legend 2
Good quality attractive helmet at a competitive price. Gets a 5 star sharp rating, not even a Shoei lid achieves that rating! This is my second Caberg, lid the other one is still serviceable but has reached its recommended age/life span.
Good all round nut protector.
Good lid, bit on the bulky side, feels a bit cheapish but overall seals properly for a modular lid. The pin lock was rubbish and cost me a waste of the supplied free screen. Had to bin (£18.00) Damaged trying to fit, yes so my fault! Helmet up lock mechanism is a tad fiddly, that is the lock and release mechanism. Overall, it is a good basic helmet.
Good looking and good fitting helmet
For the price very good and great looking in matt black. I agree with some other comments that it can be a little tight around the chin, however this can mostly be sorted be adjusting the helmet on the head. Flip up mechanism is quite smooth and so is the visor. All and all very happy.
Good value for money , I have found the helmet to be a great fit , also very quiet compared to my last lid , it comes with pinlock , chin guard , internal sun visor which is easy to move , no glasses groove but mine still fits in , ventilation is good , only done about 400 miles so far but build quality appears to be really good .
Comfortable helmet with excellent aerodynamics, especially at motorway speeds. Try it on for size beforehand if you can. It feels a little big with the face open and moves around a bit, but feels comfortable as a normal full face lid. I'm either a Medium or Large (depending on brand), this is a Medium and feels a little loose at times. The only real downside for me is the open face release button isn't wonderful and a bit too stiff, especially with gloves on.
I was not sure if the pinlock insert was included as the description was not clear.After phoning Sportbikeshop they said they would check and get back to me on the Monday which they did Thanks but I missed out on the 10% off over which ran out on the Sunday. 4 th Caberg I have had 2 nd Duke very pleased fits well,my non Caberg intercom fits well. Fast well informed delivery by Sportbikeshop.
