I decided to bop over and take a look at the latest Catlike Kompact offerings...

This could be a nice alternative to the many Pneumo red, white and blues you're likely to encounter next season...

They've expanded their color selection to meet most folks wants and needs.

We abide.

There isn't any fit system out on the market that comes close to the RocLoc 4. Yeah having different colors is nice, but the fit and protection is what counts.

... can't argue with the intended purpose of ANY helmet, but I've never owned a Catlike... and I have had a bit of experience with other systems... and actually prefer the fit and retention (assuming the wearer is properly using their particular helmet) on my MET Strads...

At any rate, I'll let ya know when mine comes in...

We abide.

Remain In Light.

Not easy to find Limar in any shops around here, but I have a healthy dose of skepticism (no shortage, ehh?) since the RocLoc 4 is a pattened system. Not that there aren't other ways to strap something on your noggin, but the Giro folks have really developed an amazing piece of technology. One thing to remember is that you routinely adjust the little locks on the back of the RocLoc to dial in your fit. Kiss your pad systems and hot spots goodbye. You may not be able to appreciate the difference while finddling around in a shop - the difference comes when you use the thing everyday and vary what you put on your head underneath your helmet. That thing sucks onto your head like the creature in the movie Alien, minus the chest pains...

I just got a LG helmet yesterday (Le Mask) with a "Spiderlock" retention system. Adjustable fit with a dial that can loosen or tighten fit on the fly (with one hand). Best fit I ever got on a helmet. Granted, the long term verdict is still out, but from trying on different helmets in stores, the fit on this one is definitely superior. Can't beat the $37 closeout price either.
