Rudy Project Helmet

Mopkop's Photo Mopkop 19 Mar 2017

Hi Guys

 

What is your experience with Rudy Project Helmets? I can get either the Airstorm or the Windmax for a very good price BUT i am more interested in the Airstorm.

 

Yay or Nay and why please?

 

Thank you

I had a huge crash with my windmax, the impact was hard enough to break my front tooth as my bottom tooth hit it. The helmet worked perfectly. I had no injuries on my head were the initial impact was.

I wanted the same helmet, but it was the same time cwc had their black Friday deal on the giro so I went for it.

Tbo, I never saw a good special on the windmax. Takealot did have a special on the airstorm a few months back. Keep a eye on their site.
Hope this was helpful.

I've got a Windmax. I really like it, light, fits me well and is comfy. Maybe not as trendy as some of the POC type helmets that seem to be the rage these days.

Have a Rudy Project Rush very comfortable. I spent an hour in the store trying everything from bell, bontrager, giro, POC etc. POC and Giro came second best but decided on the Rudy.

I had a Rudy.

when you need spares, ASG can't supply them.

I needed to replace the inserts and the clips which hold the straps together, after 18 months of waiting I bought a different brand.

nothing wrong with the helmet, but when I don't receive back up from a "premium" product supplier I take my money elsewhere.

They are good.  I am on my 2nd one at the moment.

 

My Zumax cracked and was replaced for a few rand (think R700) for a Zuma.

 

Like the lids they make, but on some rides, I have found a fair amount of strain with the lid on (strain on my neck, causes headaches over 10 km rides)

 

My other lid I have no problems whatsoever

Hi Mopkop

 

The Airstorm is a very good helmet... If you are not concerned about weight. The Windmax is lighter and is also compatible with our new Icedot system that we will be receiving soon.

Can I contact you directly for a replacement, or must I go through a dealer?

You can contact them, but you still have to replace via a dealer.
Maybe they changed, but I had to go via Bruce...
