Uber comfy and lightweight, with great rear protection!
The uvex xp cc is a comfortable, lightweight, durable, and well made helmet, which has an excellent fitting and adjustability system. The German made helmet has a plethora of features, that add not only to its safety, but to the comfort and usability of the wearer, and the one size fits all makes buying an easy task.
The helmet uses their IAS 3D+ system (Internal Adaptive System), which is comprised of a rear-mounted dial driven adjustable retention system and a floating circumferential ring which has a notched height adjuster. The system allows easy length and width and height adjustments, and can accommodate a wide range of head sizes and headgear thickness. The decently padded floating system is comfortable, and doesn’t cause any pressure points or hot spots.
Simply twirl the dial on the rear, and the system tightens or loosens around the head. It was easy to perform the adjustment, even on the fly down rough terrain, and the retention system never slipped or came loose accidentally.
The Monomatic button and ratchet closure system allows easy micro adjustments, and includes a nice wraparound pad for comfort. Their FAS system makes adjusting the straps around your ears simple, and the easy to open snap closures are durable and non-slipping.
