Axor Stealth Helmet – Long term reviewFebruary 8, 2019
AXOR STEALTH Crazy Dull Black Orange Helmet
The recent helmet rule imposition in the city of Pune turned the city into frenzy of sorts. The erstwhile Motorcycle accessories shop now primarily a “helmet shop’. Nevertheless the decade old Probiker Helmets in Pune is still revving it up giving competition a run for its money. I bought a Vega Cara helmet exactly 71 months to this day! Through this helmet I saw my way into the motorcycling community. The very first group ride saw the fog of Lonavala after heading through the hot confines of the city. Today we look at the latest acquisition – Axor Stealth Crazy Helmet.
The journey through those winding roads led me across different places and in different weather conditions. If there was one accessory I ever cherished that is the helmet. Not just any helmet but one that fit well and gave of a scent of security.
Till date the brands used so far:
While I would still vote for the Vega Cara, it by far in today’s times is apt for city use on motorcycles no more than 200cc. The overall favorite on long tours is the SOL SF1. A brand favorite of tourers from one of the motorcycling fraternities, The SOL SF1 offered not only overall comfort but also a UV 400 dark inner visor that cut the heat out of the merciless sun. The rear leds came as a bonus.
The dark horse of the lot was the Axor helmet. For just 3500/- if offered the comfort of a “premium” helmet sans the double D ring retainer belt.The Axor saw its way through 2 replacement visors and etched itself in my memory forever. it offered high speed comfort while offering low budget maintenance costs. When Axor launched its premium offering, it was next on my list. The AXOR STEALTH Crazy Dull Black Orange Helmet came in a few phone calls and emails later.
Yes, this review would be incomplete should I miss out on the team coordinating this acquisition at Axor Helmets. Your gesture is much appreciated. Unlike most bloggers, Vloggers and motorcyclists who are part of this activity, I decided to take a different approach. The first Axor had wowed me and felt a month old even after a year and half of almost daily usage. Rain, shine or cold it stood the sands of time.
Look and feel
Going by that I opted in for the AXOR STEALTH Crazy Dull Black Orange Helmet after much deliberation. The decision to buy the helmet worked. Purely on looks I recall at least 5 fellow riders who bought the same model. Albeit in different color schemes. No I did not MARKET or up sell directly. It presence did the magic. Needles to say 14 months later the AXOR STEALTH Crazy Dull Black Orange Helmet still feels a month old with on signs of fading on the exterior or interior. The cushion quality is probably one of the best in the business. Given that holds up as good as new even wearing as daily commute helmet.
The helmet easily houses most of the available helmet communication systems without a fuss. The visor cleans up easily too. The added plus in this helmet is the availability of a dark inner visor. The standard Dark Visor is just appropriate to see you all the way to the sunset. The belt holds its on and the helmet is an excellent choice for track use.
At this point of time, the AXOR STEALTH Crazy Dull Black Orange Helmet has paved way for the Apex range which similarities with it at the outset. The Apex does have its own character indeed. For a list if the finer bits click here to know more..
Room for improvement?
The Dynamics of the word always has room for more and there is but only one issue. There is a lot of turbulence from the helmet .
