Lucky Alpha Helmet Review

Lucky Alpha Helmet Review

Lucky Alpha, $104, 10 ounces

Summary: The hybrid-style Lucky Alpha tips the scales at a featherweight 10 ounces. The suspension is comfortable, with generous padding on the inner polystyrene, and the fit system adjusts easily with a quick-ratchet buckle. Headlamp compatibility is not an issue, though it was occasionally a struggle to slide the straps into the slots. The helmet’s major drawback was that it was too shallow. Many testers had a hard time getting a proper fit, as the suspension sits too high on the head.

Pros: Light; well ventilated.

Cons: Shallow suspension.

Overall grade: B
