New from Bontrager helmets are the Rally and Lithos, aimed squarely at the all mountain and enduro markets. They feature better coverage for more demanding descending applications. Both helmets are attractive and have plenty of large vents to ensure proper ventilation. Visors are large with good articulation to get out the way and even make room for a goggle storage under the visor. Side straps are fixed with a plastic holder to ensure that they clear the ears and stay out of the way. There is a height adjustable halo system with a ratchet that can cradle the back of the head for a more secure fit.

The Rally weighs in at 360 grams and is available at a very competitive price of $90.

The Lithos is heavier and more expensive at 430 grams and $140, but it has more features, starting with a more attractive and more supportive outer shell structure. Inside the helmet is molded soft rubber under the pads that improve fit and comfort as it eliminates hot spots and absorbs some shock. There is an included but optional set of pads that are designed to drain sweat away from the rider’s eyes. Finally, a mounting system is integrated into the helmet to allow easy and secure mounting of accessories such as a light or POV camera when needed.
