Product Review: F2 Carbon Victory Helmet




Victory helmetBackcountry riders seem to like helmets as much as women like handbags. The only difference is that a helmet will save your face should you rag doll off a mountain side; a handbag will only save your face if you’re ugly.

Anyway, we like helmets. Aside from the basic function of keeping your mac ’n cheese safe inside your skull, helmets offer the rider comfort by protecting your head from the cold elements of snowmobiling, offering a wide field of vision, providing good air ventilation and giving the rider a personal look.

Fly Racing’s F2 Carbon Victory helmet features a carbon fiber/Kevlar composite shell with fiberglass components. The shell is Snell 2010 and DOT USA approved.

The F2 Carbon Victory has a Tri-Vent system to keep air flowing from the goggle bridge to clear away fog. There are a total of 11 intake vents and four exhaust vents on the F2 Carbon to keep air circulation to a max.

The helmet’s liner is a dual-density EPS liner that features a progressive impact absorption ability.

The F2 Carbon’s comfort liner pops out easily so you can wash it.

The helmet fits very comfortably and the eye port design is the best of and Fly Racing helmet we’ve tested. The goggle fit is great, and the room between the nose of the goggle and the face guard of the helmet is great. We like the F2 Carbon Victory’s design and looks. The ridges in the shell, the visor and the mouthpiece give the F2 Carbon a unique look in a world of look-alike clones.
