the fox transition does look pretty nice tbh


Was he mad or just really lairy :D

Liked the Fox Transition as I have a big head and wanted something a bit retro with all round protection. A lot of road helmets look like upturned fruit bowls perched on top of your head.

Cheaper than buying another head.
So did you actually smash the lid in this shunt ?

i dont remember too much about what happened, the helmet had a small crack right in the back, apparently i hit the drivers wing, went onto his bonnet, somehow smashed head of windscreen and then landed on the road on the other side of the car.
not riding on road without a helmet now. ill be posting pics up of damage to the bike in the lizards thread later on.
