Triple Eight has created a new mountain biking helmet that’s affordable, lightweight and complies with all the latest safety standards within the biking industry. Introducing the Triple Eight Compass bike helmet that works great on dirt or pavement.
One of the coolest features of the Compass helmet is the Fit Dial system, which wraps the helmet around your head for a nice snug fit. With one hand you can easily reach up and turn the adjuster knob to tighten or loosen the helmet’s Fit to Dial system. Regardless of how bumpy the trail is rest assured that once the Fit Dial system is locked in place your helmet won’t move on you, even if your going over the handlebars.
The inside of the Triple Eight Compass helmet is lined with minimalist Sweatsaver pads that offer a comfortable feel while cutting down on the amount of sweat that runs into your eyes. Plenty of air is able to flow through the helmet thanks to 12 large port holes which makes climbing a breeze. The helmet also features an adjustable visor, however I can’t seem to notice a difference between adjustments nor do I really like to play with this on my helmets.
Pros: Affordable, lightweight,
Cons: Made in China, branded logo on the back (can be pealed off)
Triple Eight has nailed it with the Compass helmet. Weighing only 12 ounces the Triple Eight Compass was the lightest mountain biking helmet we tested in 2014! With stacks of helmets sitting around the office I find myself always reaching for the Compass helmet based on the weight, easy of adjustments and the way it fits on my head.
