We received this from a rider this morning:

I bought the Desert Fox Carbon Kevlar helmet from you earlier this year. Writing this as a testimony. I just completed a tour to Tanzania and back. Just want to testify that this helmet was an absolute pleasure to ride with in all the conditions that I met on the road. I was especially impressed with the way that it protected my head when I struck a pothole and had a very nasty head-over-heals fall. The only real damage after the fall was the visor that was scratched so much that I now need a new one. I actually struck the road with my face first! If it had not been for the helmet I could have sustained serious injuries. Thank you so much for this product.

My old shark is not all that good anymore, and I got a secondhand Arai which I then hand to my son.
Maybe this is a good option, I need to contact dustriders and hear what size is a 58/59 carbon..think Large

You can do that, or I can take you to Flying Brick so you can try one one  :sip:

I have a Uvex Carbon I am probably going to stick in the for sale section tomorrow - it is a large and marked 59/60.
