Helmets: Gyro or Carrera

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My current helmet is a Uvex and it's about 6 years old so I've decided to get a new helmet. I've found 2 that fit my fat head: a Gyro Fuse and a Carrera Airstream. Feature wise, they are the same. (The Carrera is equipped with ear speakers which I will never use, but otherwise no differences.)
I was curious if there is any reason to select one over the other. Prices are also about the same.
Thank you for any insight that you can provide.

fuse has good air vents .....

If they both have as many air vents you can open and close as on the Giro, go for the less expensive one.

Strongly recommend Giro. They do not only make very good skiing helmets but are tops in cycling helmets too.

I like the Fuse. It has removable and washable lining.

Well, I was leaning toward the Carrera, but after reading the posts, I spent a little more time comparing the two. The Fuse does have more vents and I did like the idea of the removable liner. In comparing the two, the Giro seemed to have better quality. Well, since I am now able to spell "Giro" correctly, I guess that it is obvious that it is the one that I chose.
Thank you for your input.

Believe it or not but I have one of each. I use the Carrera (Rumble) in winter, Giro (Nine/9) in spring. The Giro is stripped down (plugs and ear flaps removed), a feature the Carrera doesn't have. My wife has the Fuse. I have to say the open/close feature is never used and you could save some money trading down assuming the fit and availability is the same.
