Default Klim Helmets

Hey Guys,

I cant decide If I want to buy a Klim helmet.. The f4 I can get at my local shop for a great price, I am trying to decide between this an a Shoei Vfx-w both are about the same price..

If I buy the Klim I would be helping my local shop who happens to be 1 mile from my house and gives me awesome deals on everything and helps out where he can in my moto stuff..

The shoei would be at chaparal and they obiviously arent going anywhere..

I have always worn the cheap HJC helmets that are snell and I currently have a Fly that is DOT/ECE and I feel safe..

I never even thought of the Shoei until I found out the chaparal gives a in store discount and solid colors are cheaper..

I like the idea of helping out your local shop, but if at all possible, I'd try both on before deciding. I don't know of anyone who wears Klim helmets, but do know they make some nice and expensive sledding gear.

I have a Shoei and love it. I've worn other brands, but Shoei is by far my favorite. I have tried on Arai helmets and they fit a little differently.

I have tried both on and they are both comfortable and fit well. I think Im going to get the Klim and help out the shop, I also talked to Klim today and they seem very nice on the phone.

Well the verdict!

I love it! Its the first time I have worn a helmet that didnt make me feel like I was going to overheat. It was 97 outside at Pala and me and Erik were doing some motos and I felt really good and I could tell that after I would pull off the track and wasnt moving then I felt that heat like any other helmet.. But as soon as you were moving it was totally gone!

Its a little heavier that I would thing similar priced helmets would be ($400) but the trade off is worth it.

One downfall is there are vents above your forhead that allow air to rush into your goggles. If your goggles are not sealed beware if your getting roosted it will push the sand into your goggles.. not a huge deal but noticable.

other than that it felt great and was the most comfortable helmet Ive ever ridden with.
