Available in sizes S to XXL, Caberg’s Stunt helmet has features which include adjustable chin ventilation, a removable breath guard, rear airflow extraction and adjustable top ventilation.
My first impression of the helmet was positive, it has a very eye-catching paint scheme incorporating black, grey and fluorescent green. The style of the helmet is very much in the sporty streetfighter style with a big chin bar and distinctive shaped visor and fairly high cut at the back of the helmet.
Picking the helmet up, the initial feeling is surprise at its lightness, particularly as it is made of polycarbonate and the fact that it has a built-in sun visor that can often add to the weight. The lining of the helmet is also fully removable and washable – and the material feels plush for a budget helmet.
Putting the helmet on that feeling of lightness continues. The helmet has a very open and airy feel thanks to the large visor and the field of vision is excellent. Because the helmet is high cut at the
back it doesn’t catch on my jacket at the back of my neck, which some I have tried recently have done. The helmet felt comfortable and plush and accommodated my glasses with no problem something I can’t say for every helmet I have tried. The chin strap has a seat buckle type fastener that is very easy to operate, even though I am used to a D-ring type fastening.
Out on the open road the helmet seems to work fine aerodynamically and it’s very well ventilated. The only negative point is that it is noisier at motorway speeds than some helmets but not unbearably so. I would recommend wearing ear plugs with any motorcycle helmet anyway.
The built-in visor was very useful and the Pinlock visor lens insert prevented misting as well as any helmet I have ever worn. The helmet also coped with heavy rain and thick fog with no problems at all.
So overall it’s a light comfortable good looking helmet, with bags of features for the price!
