Catlike Kompact helmet.. Opinions/experience??(5 posts)

Catlike Kompact helmet.. Opinions/experience??turtlemoye
Dec 26, 2002 5:25 PM
I just got a Catlike Kompact helmet for x-mas and was wondering who has used them and what you thought. I wanted a Giro Pneumo but the shop was out and the owner said these are all the rage. Anybody worn the Catlike and a Pneumo?

Thanks,

I have had a Pneumo for a few years and got a Catlike a few weeks ago. Much the same reason I don't ride Ksyrium's, because everyone else has them, I wanted to try something other than the Pneumo. But, I love the way the Pneumo fits, and with a helmet, fit is everything. Anyway, I saw the Catlike and tried it on, it felt great. And then it sat in the box for three weeks, because of trips and the holidays. I just wore it for the first time the other day and need to fiddle with the straps a bit more, but the shell to head contact is every bit as comfortable as my Pneumo. Once I get the straps dialed in, I believe I am going to be very happy with my purchase.

I have had mine for 6 mo. Its the first nice helmet I have had. Its good. It adjusts easy and fits me will. Not for people with large head. My head is average and I just fir the large size.

All the riders at my local club switched from Pneumo's to Catlike Kompacts this summer and everyone agreed that its a great helmet and switching was a good decision. It fits just as well as the Pneumo and looks cool to boot.
Who is selling them online??Daddylonglegs

I agree that it is a cool new lid that not many have. Any idea where to get one online?? Maybe the Kelme or Euskatel Team issue
