November 19, 2011 - Here are some more new Caberg helmets for 2012 (See the Caberg Duke flip-up helmet preview here).
The company is noted for its unique designs, but Caberg also has several full-face helmets in their lineup.
The Caberg V2X Carbon is the company's top-of-the-line "flagship" helmet. Is is very light weight and has a beautiful carbon fiber shell.
The V2X (seen below) comes in two shell sizes, with XS to M in one shell size and L to XXL in the larger shell.
Several color patterns are available but the "raw" carbon fiber version with clear coat looks great, as does the V2X Carbon "Edge" with white panels.
The V2X has an internal sun visor; rarely found on a carbon fiber helmet.
The "V" series is also available in a less expensive version, the V2R-R which does not have a carbon fiber shell. It has a separate shell design with a different ventilation system. The V2R-R is available in a range of colors and graphics, including the new "Chrono" graphics shown below.
The entry-level full-face Caberg helmet is the V2 407, also a good-looking helmet available in a range of colors and graphics.
Caberg also had the "Riviera V2+" line on display, with another new Caberg logo in a unique design. The Riviera has an internal rotating sun shade and the "Hi-Vizion", the "Italia" and the "Diva" (flower) colors are shown below. The helmet can be worn with the clear face shield or the internal sun visor for eye protection and it's available in sizes ranging from XXS to XL spanning two shell sizes.
Finally, Caberg probably makes more helmets designed for children than many other brands. The "Rhyno Junior" is the first flip-up helmet for children, available in sizes XXXS (49-50) to S (55-56). The "V-Kid Junior" looks nearly identical to its Big Brother/Sister, the V2R.
The Junior version is available in to different "Leo" graphics and solid black as the V-Kid Solo, which comes in black but has a set of cool colored stickers the child can place on the helmet. Caberg said that men and women riders with smaller sized heads have also appreciated the V-Kid Junior, which is available in sizes from XXXS to S.
The Caberg Ego comes in a few new color patterns also, as seen below. We hope to have a V2X Carbon, a V-Kid Junior and a Rhyno Junior for a review coming soon.
