Dexter Fusion - Matt Black
Customer Product Reviews
Very good quality for the price
I bought this helmet for my other half as a second summer helmet. I am impressed with the quality of the helmet. For the price I was expecting a very basic helmet. I was surprised with all the features of the helmet but also with the quality. Nothing flimsy.
For the price this is a great helmet, pinlock included, can't find a a similar spec helmet for anywhere near this price. I got a size M, tried another dexter flip top helmet in a size m literally crushed my skull, so not sure if this helmet runs large or the other small. Matt black looks great, seems pretty quiet too. I have no regrets getting this.
A quality product
It certainly has what it takes to satisfy my needs. Flip up, easily achieved with one hand, retractable sunshade visor, and so important for me, the clear screen Pinlock visor. A quality product, it turned out to be a near perfect and comfortable fit. I still need to function check the various vent options but I expect, with this helmet that it can only get better. Certainly it is quite noiseless when operating within the speed limits. I bought it blind as the price was so attractive, and I would now confidently recommend it to anyone.
Great helmet for the price
If you can find any info anywhere about these helmets then well done as I couldn't but I took the plunge and bought this. Other similar priced lids weren't available in my size and I needed a replacement quickly! First observation - Quick delivery but wish there was some small extra discount/refund for buyers when they receive a helmet where the box looks like it was kicked around the warehouse and one that has already been tried on and returned before! Anyway not a brand snob at all but I would normally look to buy more well known and established brands that have more information available. What can I say. Dexter, very well done (Comparing with my full faced HJC and old BMW System lid) and for the money I'm very pleased. Looks great, flip mechanism works well, feels solid, and I have be honest it is surprisingly more aerodynamic than anything I've used before so much less noticeable buffeting at speed. I use earplugs routinely and albeit a system helmet like this is not expected to be the quietest, this is definitely not any louder than my full faced HJC! In the box you receive a clear Pinlock visor (nice addition), helmet bag as expected and a load of reflective stickers to abide with the French laws. The drop down sun visor is easy to operate and definitely has a more robust feel than some others I've tried recently. Could be a little darker but certainly darker than others I've seen recently. I read some reviews that suggest going for the bigger size in Dexter than normal but I have to say I am size Large and this fits me perfectly with no issues. I have to be honest and say that the interior quality was much nicer than I was expecting for the price and the velvet style materials used are very comfortable and comparable to more expensive makes so well done again Dexter. Can't comment on any use in any heavy rain yet but ventilation and visibility so far seems OK. Vent openings seem smaller than on some other lids I've looked at so more testing required but I have no hesitation recommending Dexter as a brand to try. Really pleased and for the money I will definitely consider buying another Dexter in the future!
Nice helmet, shame about the visor
When deciding to buy this helmet I read the only other review on it and was only mildly concerned at the time about the part of the review where the person said that the visor was not the best and after now buying it I can see why, it was clearly not the same person that designed the visor and the helmet, as the helmet appears to be well thought out but the visor change out mechanism design is poorly thought out, it requires a lot of effort to change out, to such an extent that it feels like your going to break it as such is the force required to remove it from the helmet. I have changed out visors on lots of other helmets over the years from Arai to ls2, none were as hard as this, Dexter you really need to back to the drawing board on this, oh and yes the video on Youtube makes it look easy, its not. On a side note the website ( Sportsbikeshop) said it has a drop down internal visor, it does not have any, ( didn't bother me as it came with a free dark race visor)so be aware, at the time of this review it still had not updated its description despite my contacting them to tell them this weeks ago (Come on lads). So helmet is 4 stars and visor is 2 stars. If you can see yourself only changing out the visor occasionally maybe you can over look this as it is a nice helmet.
Very good value lid, visor not the best
This helmet feels a level above where it is priced at. It's nice and light with a good quality liner. The only down side is the visor. It was a real pain to fit, taking a lot of force and felt like it could break before it snapped in. It feels a little flexy too when lowering from fully open.
