Fly Paradigm Helmet Review

A brand new part of the Fly Street collection from Fly Racing, the Fly Paradigm Helmet is one of the most exciting pieces of gear they're releasing for Spring 2011. Extraordinarily lightweight, quiet, and aerodynamic, the Fly Paradigm Helmet comes in at an unheard-of price point (under $200) for a helmet that touts this level of features. Available in graphic versions in addition to a sleek matte black finish, the Fly Paradigm Helmet is going to be extremely popular this season amongst the sport and street riding crowd.

Check out our Fly Paradigm Helmet Review:



Fly Paradigm Classic Helmet
The first thing that impressed us about this lid is how lightweight it is. While it boasts DOT & ECE certification, with ECE usually adding some extra weight, the Paradigm still weighs in right around the 3.5lb mark. The composite outer shell is a blended weave of fiberglass, kevlar and carbon fiber which provides exceptional protection from impact but maintains the helmet's lightweight nature. The dual density EPS liner system reduces the shock of impact by dispersing energy evenly. For air flow, the Paradigm has three large open/close intakes (designed to operate easily with gloves on) with six rear exhaust vents that will keep your head cool on the most blazing days of the year. The venturi effect airflow will suck the hot air from the front of the helmet and out the back for maximum cooling.

Inside, the extremely soft Comfort Liner is moisture-wicking and antibacterial. Both the liner and cheek pads can quickly be removed and are completely washable. The ventilation is channeled through the EPS and lines up with the comfort liner to ensure that your head gets the airflow, not the helmet's materials. The anti-fog shield that comes stock with the helmet operates with a quick change mechanism that literally can be removed in seconds. There are multiple shields available for this helmet including tinted, mirrored, and colored styles. Since the ventilation and aerodynamics are designed for the 3/4 or tucked position, this helmet will work best in street and sport riding scenarios.

The new Fly Paradigm muscles its way into the group of mid-level price helmets that offer a feature set that exceeds their price tags. This helmet is sure to have a great deal of appeal in the sport riding community this year. Check out our full selection by visiting Motorcycle Helmets at RevZilla.com.
