Despite being in mass market products for more than a few years now, carbon fiber, well, anything, tends to be more expensive than products made with more conventional materials. However, because the woven material is lighter and stronger than steel, investing a few extra dollars in a carbon fiber motorcycle helmet is justifiable, even if they are on the higher side of the price spectrum. Which makes the Fuori Carbon Helmet by Sedici such a tempting proposition at just $150.
Typically, the Fuori goes for $280, which is still relatively inexpensive, but today you can snag one for $150. And if you think the lower price means a lesser helmet, know the Sedici meets or exceeds DOT and ECE standards which any road-worthy motorcycle helmet must meet. And if the carbon fiber shell wasn’t enough, the helmet is also reinforced with DuPont Kevlar for even more strength and durability without adding a ton more weight. Even the visor is made of a shatter-resistant polycarbonate. Vents with stainless steel mesh on the chin and forehead are paired with multiple exhaust ports at the back to help regulate airflow, so you can stay cool out on the trail.
Carbon fiber is still one of the more popular materials for multi-million dollar supercars and boats, but when it comes to the products us consumers in the more humble tax brackets can afford, it’s nice to the ultralight material becoming even more commonplace. Which begs the question, is this the beginning of affordable carbon fiber products? We hope so.
