Caberg Duke II - Metal White
Customer Product Reviews
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.
Nice helmet, fair price
Good fit and feels to be well made (I returned a shark as it did not fit right and not sure I wanted to risk my head it in) feels like a quality item. I was a little concerned after reading that the visor did not retract fulling into the helmet, but not an issue. Down sides, a bit noisy and the flip up locking button is not that easy to use when riding with gloves on . But happy with the helmet and the service from sport bikes shop.
Superb Helmet... Excellent Value for Money
Needed to replace two Shoei helmets, one flip-front Multitech and one non-flip full face. Both are mint and well looked after, but getting on a bit. Having researched many articles stating the need to replace helmets at around 5-years of ownership, I needed a change. I wanted another modular helmet, but could not afford the Shoei Neotech. Not a being a fan of non-fibreglass helmets, I bought the Duke having read many great reviews and also because of the very high Sharp safety rating. Early days, but for around £130 this is a superb helmet. Well built, a smart/aggressive look and, as a glasses wearer, the internal sun visor is a revelation. Very pleased with the purchase.
Brilliant helmet in a very visible colour
I'm very impressed with the duke 2 helmet. It's a couple of generations newer than my old konda kid and a big improvement. It's lighter, quieter and more comfortable. The bright red colour stands out too without being a fluorescent bug magnet. I'm very impressed.
Very pleased with the Duke 2. Much lighter than my AGV. Beautifully made and looks the business. If it wasn't for the high pitched 'winey noise' when I turn my head at speed (probably coming from the sun-visor slider), I would've given it a 5. Great sale price, and superb service as always from SBS. Highly recommended.
Caberg Duke 2 good choice on a budget
Its lightweight (certainly compared to the HJC its replacing), quieter too! Ratchet strap lock is great once you've taught your fingers to do it. On the downside the internal sun visor does not retract into the helmet fully and is left intruding into your field of view. Noted by a previous reviewer I wish I had paid a little more attention. This will prevent me purchasing another unless it gets rectified by the manufacturer. The chin bar lock is fiddly, but i can live with it as I don't really intend to ride with it up. Haven't used the pinlock visor yet, but by providing one in the box it does mean you're ready to go!
I bought the helmet a week or so ago I have worn it most days for over 4 hours a day and it's very light and comfortable. The weather has been atrocious with heavy rain and with the fog screen fitted to the visor there wasn't any fogging at all. I was a bit dubious as a previous reviewer had mentioned it leaked a bit.... after a week of torrential downpours I'm happy to say it didn't leak one bit.
