Thanks man!! I'm stoked... Hopefully I'll NEVER have to use it to its potential, but overall - it's light and it's got terrific safety ratings. Nuff said.

Now, if you mean I'm gonna love this helmet in a bit of a more, well, intimate and weird way. I'll just keep that off the board... To each their own. Typically shit's only illegal if someone finds out - right? Right.

But ya, I'm stoked. Big day shopping today. Daaaayuuum!!!!

Peace Out,
D. Sanchez

I went helmet shopping in Whistler this weekend. POC, Giro, Bell, Fox, O'Neal, Troy Lee; none fit properly. Except the Kali Avatar 2. Unbelievably light, super low-pro and reasonable graphics. My point being that you need to try them all on to find the brand that works for you.

necro response...

i picked up one of these. linen fiber is a neat alternative to carbon (like, sooo played), is relatively cheap, isn't a troy lee, is very light, and fits me well (similar to my old d2). i really like the styling, and the steampunk-ish vents, many do not. this suits me fine.

me too.
I tried on the XL/XXL Urge posted above, and it didn't fit. Looks like my massive North American cranium will have to stick with the wide offerings from Bell/Giro/661.

TLD fits well, but they don't fit my tight wallet.
Hell, the TLD Leatt pads cost almost as much as a new Leatt!



Besides, I like the svelte lines of a POC.




so sexy.

At least you can still buy the D2. They still look pretty nice.
