Anyone know when the 2011 Uvex FP3 National Colours models come out. Look nice.

Can anyone "weigh" in on the LAS Istrion helmet? Seems nice and bonktown was blowing them out.

Where did you get a Prevail? They will not be available here till at least the middle to end of Dec with any luck. I guess it is due to meeting the U.S. standards.


Hi - I purchased mine in the UK - got it on order before they arrived so I guess at the front of the line. Very happy with it :)

Specialized 2D, large. claimed: 284. actual 272.

The Prevail looks like a nice upgrade. When I need to replace my helmet, that will probably be the one.

Another Catlike Whisper Plus, size L (59/61), ready to be put on the head: claimed 270g, actual 278g.

Fully agree on that sunglasses pain discussed earlier, though :D

I like the helmet as it is nice to have the adjustment system built into the straps. Light, but still feels substantial.

^^Colin, the Uvex are tanks huh? Is the 3.1 the same weight as your 3.0? I was told sunglasses don't fit into the Uvex either. Is this true?

I think the Prolight might be my next helmet if my darn Prevail doesn't show up. I think I can squeeze my ol head into a small. Anyone have the real weight of a small Prolight?

The FP1 is much lighter ~250g and a fait bit slimmer than the FP3 and normally a little bit cheaper too FWIW.

My Specialized 2D, purchased from UK, 199.7 grams size medium out of the box. Curious thing is it gained a few grams since. NaCl, I suspect.

Anyway, Velonews claims the Prevail was 230 grams for size medium. I wonder if there's a different version for the US and the UK, due to the stricter clamp restrictions in the US.

If so, folks may consider ordering from the UK instead of buying within the US (USAC accepts either Euro or US certification).

Sorry, I just now saw this. Yeah the Uvex aren't very light, but they sure are comfortable! Not sure about the 3.1. And nope sunglasses don't fit.

The Prolight's are very nice, but they are kind of strange looking. kind of make you look like a mushroom :lol: .

I just replaced my older Bell Ghisallo today with a Specialized S-works. Claimed weight 225, actual 219 (size small). I almost went with a Giro Atmos (I liked the colors better), but the S-works fit a bit better and weighed 70g less. Both are last years models and on sale at the local Bike Source for about $100 (about 60% off).
