What helmet you rockin?

You’ll have to let me know how you like the TSG. I’ve heard nothing but good things and it’s next on my list, the coming from a Switchblade I’d be curious how you feel it compares comfort wise.

I ordered first XL as everybody said it´s smaller than they advertise.
I needed to send the helmet back to get one in L.
58cm head, fit now super perfect.
I didn´t took it for a ride yet, but it´s super light too.
field of view similar to the switchblade.
my chin is very close to the helmet front, so I needed to take out the small neoprene bumber, but now it´s fine.
I like that you can adjust the helmet size with the switchblade.
that´s missing on the TSG.
on both I don´t like the locker (sorry don´t know the right word in english) the meachnism how to close the helmet.
No way to open it with gloves or frozen fingers in the winter. :rofl:
maybe there is a trick for it, but I didn´t find out yet…

Pretty good when moving but if you stop at a light or something it will get warm quick.

Last summer I rode daily in 100+ degree weather and it did get quite sweaty if I wasn’t going fast.

For the TSG you can get a lot of air in with the visor opened in the summer time… I like to keep just a little opened while riding to get more air flow.

As for sweating in your helmet, that’s just nasty as you do it repetitively and don’t really have the ability to wash it. I highly suggest these “Headsweat” helmet liners. I’ve used it for like 20 years since biking days

I like your Spindoctor! I use a Nolan N43E Air :muscle:t4::beers: Modular for the win ! And the Robocop inner sunvisor is just flawless.

Edit : Gosh that’s like my first face pic posted here.

You know, it might just be my gigantic head but I don’t love my Spindoctor. It feels a bit tight despite being similarly dimensioned to my Giro Switchblade, which to this day is still my favorite.

Lol well figure this out : I usually think I have a big head with a big forehead and it happens I fit comfortably a M size … Maybe it’s the shape, you might not have such a gigantic head :joy:

So New Olders reached out to me personally by email! They said they are working on my order and I can expect it soon, but carbon fiber take a little extra time to make.

So excited!
