Studds Urban Open face Helmet BK-BK Strip(L) Review
Studds has always been one of the leading companies for manufacturing helmets. With more than 40 years of experience, this company has gained customers’ trust for their top-class product quality.
The Urban strip helmet from Studds is a pocket-friendly yet durable product. The black color suits the hard-coated outer body and looks good. Let’s talk about its features, pros, and cons to know if this product is worth buying or not.
The outer build of this low budget Studds urban helmet is made of high-quality ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) shell, also known as thermoplastic. These materials are high-impact resistant, and top-quality engineering makes the helmet more sturdy than ever. It can withstand heavy-collision and will absorb most of the damage, saving your head from any injury.
Wide eye port ventilation
There are no air vents in this helmet because it is a half-face helmet. The wide eye port area works as ventilation and allows the outer air to flow over your head to keep you calm and relaxed. This prevents heat build-up during summer and lets you go sweat-free.
The urban helmet from Studds comes with a high-quality visor that will protect your eyes from direct sunlight and dust to prevent distraction while riding. Also, in rainy seasons you will be able to see the road clearly.
What Do We like
The urban helmet is very comfortable because it comes equipped with EPS concussion padding inside. They are very thick and covers the whole helmet to ensure better comfort. The padding offers comfort and protects your face from injuries.
The hard-coated scratch-resistant outer body and the top quality inner anti-microbial soft padding ensures maximum protection. The sturdy exterior is very tough and scratch-resistant as well that will absorb the damage on heavy collision or any impact. This covers your whole face, and it provides protection that endures.
This is a very lightweight helmet from Studds. It weighs only 998 grams or approximately 1kg. You will hardly feel anything on your head, even on long rides. Even after having the top quality outer body and advanced inner soft padding, it is very lightweight.
The built-in quick-release straps are very user-friendly. You can adjust these straps to tighten or loosen the helmet to ensure a secure fit. These straps will ensure that the helmet does not come off while riding or while any heavy collision as well to protect your head.
A good helmet can only protect you if it fits you correctly. This is a large-sized helmet of 60 cms. Measure your head using a measurement tape to know the exact size so the helmet you buy will fit you properly and will be able to protect you adequately.
What We Don’t Like
Some of the users have reported that the inner padding’s longevity is not excellent. They are coming off after a while, and that’s what makes it dangerous. Without the padding, you won’t be comfortable and will not be adequately protected.
This is one of the pocket-friendly helmets that comes with this many features loaded. The outer build is of top-quality, and the scratch-resistant visor and exterior’s longevity is perfect even if you are using it regularly.
The only con of this product would be the poor quality thermo-foam that has been used on the inside. You need to use the product with caution to make it long-lasting. Apart from this it is the right product and is a good value for money option.
