Great price for solid protection.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: xs/s
I purchased the Chakra for my girlfriends son. I was impressed by the construction and well made retention system. This is an adult sized helmet, but fit perfectly on a seven year old.
Great budget helmet
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
If you're looking for a cheap brain bucket for mountain biking, you're in the right place. Build quality is impressive for a helmet in this price range, as is the adjustment system. Plenty of vents to keep you cool in Moab, it weights next to nothing, and it even looks pretty cool. I bought the Hi-Viz orange for trail riding, but I've also been using it while commuting because it really does live up to the name - it's extremely bright and makes you pretty hard to miss.
Minus one star because the velcro that holds the pads in is pretty wimpy and will need some reinforcement at some point - but that's the only real fault I can find.
I have a large, oddly shaped head (ladies, contain yourselves) and the M/L fits comfortably with no movement once I have the adjustment knob cranked down.
Can you unsnap the visor and replace it like you can with some bell/giro models ?
Or when it breaks away is it off for good ?
