LEM Helmets

Flow Mountain Bike Helmet

First Impressions:

As soon as I open the box the first thing I get is a smell of quality and the helmet is nicely packaged so this gives me some confidence that the lid inside will be decent. Out of the box and the helmet looks and feels great, plenty of vents and the padding on the inside is perfectly placed. I pop it on my head and a quick glance in the mirror to see if I get the traditional “mushroom” look…. It’s not too bad actually.

Out on the trails:

The ride today is a 20+ mile loop in the Peak so I’m definitely going to test the helmets comfort factor, the helmet has a rotational dial adjuster so a few turns of that it was fitting very nice. I got to a point where I didn’t notice I was wearing it! After some long hard climbs the padding kept the sweat from running down into my eyes. the vents did their job perfectly and was kept pretty cool the whole ride. Fits great with goggles so you can go fully enduro if you like! no falling off this ride so can’t test out the helmets safety feature but it has all the correct safety accreditation so should hold up to it.

Conclusion:

My last 2 helmets have been the classic Fox Flux, would the LEM Flow replace them?… well put it this way since my ride in the Peak I have done 2 other rides and I seem to be grabbing the LEM to pop on my head. The price tag is not the lowest but certainly not the highest and looks and feels like it should be priced higher.
