BBB Falcon Helmet - Looking for User Reviews

Postby Kneedown » Wed Jul 13, 2011 11:01 pm

Hi folks,

In the market for a new helmet as my trusty old Giro Pneumo has developed a terminal split in the foam.

Have been liking the look of these BBB Falcon helmets while watching Le Tour and they are well priced online.

Not much info around about them unfortunately. Can anyone who has one share their thoughts on comfort, fit, durability and ventilation?

Have also been thinking about the Giro Ionos but annoyingly my head circ is right on the upper limit of small and lower limit of medium which leaves me with a helmet that is either too big or too small!

Cheers

They run a different fitting compared to GIRO, a mate of mine was in between the M and L of GIRO, M was slightly tight; hard on the temple while Large was too big. He went for the Falcon L and it fits his head perfectly.

I've always been impressed with the BBB stuff - very well priced.

I was looking at a BBB helmet, but went with a MET instead.
