Rudy Project has produced high-end sunglasses and helmets for road cyclists since As dominant as it is on the pavement, the Italian brand is now tossing its hat in the mountain bike ring.
Its new Protera helmet rights that wrong with a dirt-specific design aimed at trail and all-mountain riders.
The back of the shell even has a goggle groove, confirming its dirty intentions. But it does have some flaws.
Read on Project rudy the details. Rudy Project Protera Helmet: Safe and Comfortable The most noticeable feature of the Protera is the added occipital coverage at the back of the shell. The 18 well-placed vents on the Protera make it one of the coolest trail helmets I have tested.
However, although the forward-facing apertures are well-shaped to swallow big gulps of air, the other ports are not as aerodynamically sculpted. On the upshot, the seven vents atop the crown allow warm air to rise through the top at slower climbing speeds. Like most European lids, the Protera ships with a mesh insert, which feels a little bulky.
Riders less worried about bugs and more concerned with maximum airflow can swap the netting for traditional pads.
And the X-Static antimicrobial fabric reduces odor, although you will still need to wash the Protera regularly to keep it funk free. On even the choppiest trail, the Protera sits securely in place. The internal retention system has some adjustability on the vertical axis, but I find it sits low on the back of my head.
That causes the helmet to rise just slightly when crouched down with my chin tilted upward. Rudy says this facilitates easier cleaning and allows riders to exchange straps for different colors.
To keep the overall thickness to a minimum, Rudy built the outer hardshell in two pieces made of contrasting colors. Both components are in-molded with mixed-density EPS foam to reduce bulk without compromising energy absorption and impact protection.
An additional benefit to the two-piece construction is a respectably low weight. That puts it on the lighter side of the all-mountain helmet spectrum. Wobbly Visor Not surprisingly, I had one quibble with the visor.
It still flops around and moves easily when bumped. I would have preferred hard detents or a more robust hinge mechanism. A fixed visor would be better than one I have to continually reposition on the fly. It is lightweight, low profile, and well ventilated. The Protera is now available for pre-order on the Rudy Project e-commerce website, but in limited sizes and colors.
The full assortment is scheduled to arrive by mid-spring.Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for Rudy Project Rydon Flex Matte Black Polar 3FX Grey at r-bridal.com Read honest and .
