Customer Product Reviews
I have spent a lot of time reading about different helmets. Wanted safe and convenient solution. Finally, I made decision to buy Caberg Duke II with Sharp 5 star safety rated. Helmet fits well my head, size instructions on the web page were clear enough. Integrated sun visor, convenient well placed visor control slider at the top of the helmet, removable interior, looks good. Pinlock included! If you want to drive with flip up raised and locked you need to move fixation slider into lock position before you put the helmet on. The fixation is quite difficult to operate in a gloves. The chin bar can be easily open with the large button in the centre. The bike season is not yet opened and I'm looking forward trying the helmet on a bike.
Great Helmet - First Flip-up
Great Helmet - This is my first flip-up style helmet. I was very impressed by how quiet it is. Very comfortable and excellent safety ratings. Comes with a anti-fog pinlock too which is always a bonus, especially at this price point.
Nice lid, good value
First off, I've given it 5 stars but there are a couple of small negatives. So far I've been using it for about a month in the cold & wet (hurrah), so can't give a decent review of the open-face aspect. The negatives: 1. The chin space is tight. I'd seen this on a review prior to buying, but thought I chance it. It's not an issue for me, but I could see it being a problem for some. 2. The ventilation when the face is closed isn't the best, but also not the worst. It fogs around the edges of the pinlock, but I can suffer that. The positives: 1. 5 star SHARP rating - excellent low percentage on the flip-up lock failure as well - enough said. Worth buying just for that alone. 2. It fits nice. I'm a medium and it is spot on. Feels comfy, the lining is fairly decent. 3. Considering its an flip-up, it is pretty quiet - but then I always wear ear-plugs, so... 4. Great value for money - seriously, less than £150 for a helmet that has these features and looks cool as well - do your head a favour! Overall, I am happy with it and can't wait for the warmer weather so I can enjoy its full versatility.
Caberg Duke 2
Great helmet , fits beautifully, excellent wind block quality and noise reduction. I commute in this helmet and bought the pinlock with it , works really well. I work shifts starting anywhere between 4am and 4 pm so I'm out in all weathers and times so I can recommend both having tested them. All in all a good quality helmet for a very good price
Very impressed with this helmet. I had the earlier version which was very good too and has 5 star sharp rating. I used it for my seven countries European tour and was very comfortable and not as noisy as I thought. However, I always wear earplugs. The service from Sportsbikeshop is always the best on the market. Thank you guys.
Perfect First Helmet. Love It!!
First ever helmet and first purchase from SBS. 5 stars on both accounts. I ordered the wrong size (L) but was hassle free and really quick to send back and receive my correct size (s). Helmet is a perfect fit and looks even better in person than pics. Quality seems good (to a noob like me) but does show finger smudges rather easily.. Excellent visibility and quite light in weight compared to some other modular helmets. Very happy and recommend as perfect first helmet as high safety ratings with flip either up or down. Now on to my next purchases. :)
A great helmet
I am really pleased with this helmet. It is comfortable and looks & feels a quality product without being too heavy. This is my first flip front helmet and I value the added flexibility and option for increased airflow at slow speeds with the chin bar raised. Superb value for money in the Smart Black when other colour options (which are otherwise identical) cost quite a bit more.
