Hello friends! I am on the hunt for a new helmet. The One-K is three years old, and while that is well within the life-span of a helmet, it is starting to look a bit sad. Also, I have no back up helmet laying around for A. Riding in Terrible Weather and B. if I fall off. So, I am looking for some input from all of you! (Keep in mind, my head fits pretty well in a Samshield and about perfectly in a One-K)
1 – Trauma Void™ EQ3™
Who doesn’t love new technology in equestrian sports? Who in eventing doesn’t love new SAFETY technology?
Enter the Trauma Void. Top Safety Results, and Modern Look. Sounds like a home run!
Buuuut I know other One-K wearers who they just didn’t work for. (looking at you Centered In the Saddle)
2 – Charles Owen AYR8® Plus Helmet
So technically, the study linked above references the Charles Owen AYR8® Leather Look helmet as a “Good Choice”. Buuuuuut I don’t think that one has a removable/washable liner, and after having that feature in a Samshield and my One-K… I just cannot live without it.
The CO is classic for any ring/venue/english discipline. And I think they are flattering on most people. HOWEVER, I am not sure this would come event remotely close to fitting my head.
Honestly… I think that might be it. I could always get another One-K, and I REALLY like my One-K. I could even get the Defender with fun colors. Is there anything that I am missing that I should seriously consider? This is a BIG decision people! 🙂
