The Made2Race (M2R) X-4.5 Helmet gets a big thumbs up from Bike Review regular and Law Talk guru Mark Stenberg.
I have used a carbon-fibre O’Neal 10 Series helmet for the last two years and thought it was the ant’s pants with light weight and good ventilation. So I was shocked when I looked at the M2R X-4.5 as it was such a cool design, very light and very well designed, with easy removal of liner and cheek pads for the ‘each ride’ wash.
It is also designed with ESRS so that the cheek pads can be easily removed by pulling on a tab each side even while helmet is still being worn for emergencies. The dual layer four-piece channelled EPS shock absorbing liner giver further peace of mind especially with the MIT plus Carbon Kevlar FG shell and safety shear peak. Ventilation is by multi-channel vortex system.
As a result the M2R X-4.5 helmet is very comfortable while riding, and all-round very impressive! I would happily spend my own money to buy one of these helmets for my use of enduro riding.
