Kali Protectives Avita Fiberglass XC Helmet in Review
When this awesome helmet came up on sale some months ago, I jumped right on it and now wish i got two. This is a $140 helmet that I got on chainlove.com for a screaming $35. I try to brag to everybody about this site and how steep the deals are so no one is to blame but yourself for not having amazing gear for at least 1/2 the cost. I had this in the box for a few months as I knew I was putting a stink beating into my crappier Louis Garneau Robata helmet so I would hold off until it cool a little bit. So I cracked it out of the box and put it on my head for the first time. I was nervous when I saw what appeared to be same chin strap from Fox Reflux but I was pleased when it fit much different. It sat real comfortable on my head, the strap fit nicely on my chin not too far forward or back, just right. The ratcheting rear secure system is identical to Fox and works just fine. What else can I say, fits and looks great! I would buy another one in a heartbeat and decided I will only use Kali helmets from here on out. I hope chainlove.com puts them back on sale because I will buy another one in a second!
