BE COOL. BE COMFORTABLE. The skate-style look never gets old. But that rigid bowl-style shell feel can be a drag. That’s where Segment shines. It has the classic shape of an old-school skate helmet, but its ingenious design gives it head-hugging flexibility. So it’s way more comfortable. How did we do it? A series of interior EPS foam segments (segments, get it?) are connected by a reinforcing skeleton—so it fits more like a comfortable cap than a helmet and still meets safety standards. Pretty amazing, right? SUGGESTED USE BMX-Street/Dirt; Urban/Commute; MTB Trail Ride TECHNOLOGIES ABS Hard Plastic Shell Segmented EPS Liner ASTM BMX Standard Compliant SEGMENTED EPS By adding a flexible fit technology to the interior EPS foam liner we’ve greatly improved the comfort of hardshell helmets. The liner is divided into eight segments, each connected to an internal skeleton which allows the helmet to flex and conform to the shape of your head. The result is a comfortable fit that feels more like a cap than a hard-shell helmet. SPECS WEIGHT 410 grams VENTS 8 CERTS CPSC Bicycle CE EN1078 ASTM F2032 BMX SIZES S 51–56 cm M 54–59 cm L 58–63 cm

The helmet is lightweight but seems suitably sturdy and well made. It is supplied with three sets of interchangeable foam inserts which
fit inside the helmet to allow for different head sizes. This system works well but I suspect the inserts may work loose over time as the velcro style fixing system seems a bit insecure. However, this could be easily fixed as required with a touch of glue. The helmet is very comfortable in use although the strap sits awkwardly around the chin but I daresay this can be adjusted easily enough.
In conclusion I can say that I am very satisfied with my purchase and am happy to recommend it to others.
Sturdy build quality
Supplied insert padding to allow for a secure fitting
Inserted fitting pads not very secure
Chin strap fits awkwardly
Anyway, I decided to go back into cycling again and while in store saw this Helmet. I was immediately taken by it. I know a lot of kids use it for BMX chucking about, but I like It for that more militaristic and serious look that isn`t dorking about. Heck, I just LIKE IT! If I like it then I`ll enjoy my cycling just that bit more. Right? But it seemed a bit pricey... Surely I can get a better deal on the net?
Yep. Same thing, way cheaper (by £10 at time of writing).
I went for the Large size as I have a big head (well I do). It arrived relatively quickly (2 days) and it fit absolutely fine. Perfect really. i`m a bit of a skin head and it seemed moulded just for my skull! I didn`t need to use any extra padding at all. It doesn`t stand on the head too high, so the forehead and eyes do get top-cover protection. The rear of the skull is definitely more protected so I feel quite safe about that area behind me. You also have plenty of ear space so you can hear all round you.
I`ve had a couple of rideouts in it and love it. Maybe it`s just me, but I`m kinda pleased no one in my area has a cycle helm like mine. I suspect these will become more popular in time. Especially the dark grey colours for the men as it has a real army, paratrooper look. I could see white being popular too. Just to be safe I stuck one strip of luminous tape on the back of the helm so drivers will see that at night.
Nice tough and strong feel. Totally smooth so I guess your head will skid if it contacts with anything and objects will likely skewer off in an accident (hopefully they`ll be no accidents). Very light as well. Good adjustable straps.
Did I say I love this helmet?
I don`t like giving anything 5 stars as nothing is perfect. But it gets 5 anyway.
Recommended. I`d get one quick before the price starts jacking up.
Edit: Used it for a couple of years and all the materials have held up superbly.
