Vega Boolean Anthracite Flip-up Helmet-M Review
Vega helmets are world’s one of the leading helmet manufacturing companies. They come with more than 25 years of experience, and the high-quality product at an affordable range is what makes them unique.
This Vega Flip-up helmet is a mid-range product that is built with premium quality materials. The dual visor not only looks great but also works well. Let’s talk about its features, pros, and cons to know if this product is worth buying or not.
Since the 1960s, ABS or Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene shells are popular with helmet manufacturing. The product is very lightweight and can be easily machined, designed, and molded. It is a sturdy and durable material that can withstand a higher and lower temperature of 95 degrees Celsius and -10 degrees Celsius, respectively. This comes with high impact resistance properties, and the finish of any ABS product is better.
The sun visor or the face shields are placed in two stages. This helmet comes with dual visor; one of them works as sunglasses that will protect your eyes from the direct sunlight. The other one is plain, and it prevents the dust from entering the helmet. The visors are made of polycarbonate and come with silicon hard-coating that makes it scratch-resistant.
This flip-up helmet can be used as a full-face helmet or as an open-face helmet. The wide eye port is the primary source of the fresh airflow that will help you calm while riding. It also prevents heat build-up.
What Do We like
The interior of this helmet is covered with high-quality EPS or Expanded polystyrene crushable foams. CAD technology has been used in this helmet to make this helmet more superior and comfortable. The EPS is very reliable and can reduce the energy during the impact by converting it into heat. These foams are placed to comfort and protect your head at the same time.
Vega helmets prioritize the protection. Hence, the helmet is one of the finest when it comes to this aspect. Between the outer ABS shell and the thick inner crushable foam, one will absorb the damage on any impact, and the other will reduce the energy on heavy collision as well. Your head will be protected at any cost.
For the first time, opening the visor has become this much easier. There is a single button, pressing, which will release the face shield of this helmet. You won’t have to do it manually; the helmet will do it for you. You will have to lock the helmet back when you want to use it as a full-face helmet.
Even after having a multi-density layer of EPS and the sturdy ABS shell, it weighs only 1.30 kg. This will not irritate your head or won’t let you feel anything heavy on your head as well. You can easily go for long rides and keep riding efficiently.
What We Don’t Like
No negative points were seen so far.
This mid-range helmet comes with tons of features and looks very stylish. The flip-up feature allows you to go open-faced or full-faced as you like it.
