Caberg Duke II - Metal White
Customer Product Reviews
Duke is King
I already have a Duke and bought this one for my wife who had an old Caberg Trip that needed replacing. My wife loves it. Fits well. Reassurance of 5 star safety rating from sharp. Came with a free clear pin lock visor insert (worth £30) easy to fit with pins already in place on the helmet. Great value and recommend
Can't beat a Caberg
I find for a modular lid, you can't beat a Caberg. This one is 5 star SHARP rated - so already a good start. Add to that it's really comfortable, a sturdy design and good stiff lifting and locking mechanisms - you definitely won't be worried about it being too flimsy. The internal sun visor is an absolute God send - and almost worth it just for that. Add to all that a very reasonable price tag, really, what more could you ask for?! I can highly recommend this lid - and for that matter, SBS. Superb service as always.
A tad noisy but good otherwise
Get a fair bit of wind noise to the level of it all but drowning out the engine/exhaust (these aren't loud anyway mind) plus over 60mph if I look to the right, a whistle starts up by my left ear. Fit is good, it came with a pinlock insert, it looks really good to my eyes, has good visibility and the wind curtain has been invaluable of late.
A good quality helmet that fits really well. Also, as others have said it's so very quiet with minimal wind noise. There is good all round vision and the Pinlock system really helps with cold weather visibility. I took me a while to get used to the opening method for the flip up but that's only because the release button is in a different place to my last one. I can most certainly recommend this helmet
My second Caberg Duke hat
Very good helmet at an excellent price. Has a 5 star safety rating on SHARP. I bought white after attending a "Biker Down" course and being told by the Fire Service that white is the safest colour for visibilty. Practical for all weathers with a pinlock insert for cold & wet weather, it can be used open with the dark internal visor down when it gets really hot. Very convenient at fuel stops and peages etc as the flip up front means you don't need to take off the helmet. I have fitted an Interphone Sport comms unit to it, a tight fit but it works well.
Not so good for the big chinned gentleman
Seemed like a well made helmet with all the features and felt very sturdy light and easy to use but the fit was just so wrong for me the chin bar came down and I had to squash my head in to get it to lock shut. So a bit of a shame as it seems like a good lid but far to narrow for me and I didn't like my chin touching the front of the helmet great service as usual from sportsbike
Had the previous incarnation so no surprises with this lid. Everything a little better. Well made, feels a quality helmet in all respects. Superb service as always and price match applied straight away. Didn't give it 5 as it's not in the same league as a £600+ Arai or similar but for the price it is as good as it gets.
Five star Sharp rating
Happy with this purchase. Spent a considerable period of time considering various helmets. Colour, spec, flip lid etc. And of course price. I went for a white lid with flip - The flip is stiff as you'd expect with a new helmet. The clasp around the chin is adjustable with quick release. There's a double visor which are easily re-positioned. The interior lining is removable and comfortable. The overall product quality is good in my opinion for the money spent. I've yet to trial on bike so unsure on noise level. The helmet is light and comfortable looking forwards to trialing on bike.
Delighted with both this helmet and the service from SPORTSBIKESHOP. The helmet looks great and sits perfect. My head measured 59cm and the large size is ideal. The flip up front works well and locks in place to meet EC regs. The vents are easy to open and close, even with gloved hands. I have tried several helmets whose sun visor came down too far onto my nose, the Caberg sun visor is just right. Comes with a Pinlock but I haven't fitted this yet. Fantastic helmet for the price. Great service, as usual, from SPORTSBIKESHOP.
Considering the budget price of this helmet, I have been surprised how good it is. Its light (for a flip front), compact, reasonably quiet, very comfortable, and seems well made. Slight gripe, is the chin bar is a bit stiff to click into the fully open position, but this should loosen up a bit with use. Looking for a budget "flip front" ? give this one a try, I doubt if you'll be disappointed.
