C Originals SV888 Helmet Review
New for 2012, the SV888 is C Originals top of the range road cycling helmet. A pricetag of £88.00 is in line with many other companies mid level helmet models.
How does it look and fit?
Looks wise the appearance is similar to the popular and well ventilated Giro Ionos helmet. The vents are aggressive looking and generally on the large size. The styling is modern and chunky and will appeal to many riders.
Fit is on the wide side in comparison to many other helmet models on the marketplace and the helmet is therefore more suited to a cyclist with a wider or rounder head. Best to try before you buy if you don't already know this.
Ease of use
The C Originals SV888 features a simple yet easy to use retention system which adjusts from the rear of the helmet via the use of a single dial system which helps provide a good snug fit whether it worn on its own against the skin or using a winter skullcap for warmth or cycling cap to protect your eyes from the rain.
