    Helmets - Azonic Exile vs. Sixsixone Recon

    Looking for a new helmet to buy online without the benefit of fitting. Between the Azonic Exile and Sixsixone Recon, which is the better helmet?

    I found the Exile on Pricepoint in white, black or schizo for $65 and the Recon on eBay in white/gray for $57 with free shipping. Listed weight is 50g lighter for the Exile.

    I have the Recon and it's been great. I wear a S/M size fitted hat and the S/M Recon fits perfectly.

    I just got the Recon size L/XL & it fit perfectly right out of the box. I was surprised about how light it feels. I've been wearing a cheap Schwinn helmet I bought from Target for 2 years. Haven't had a ride in the Recon yet...

    I like my Recon,so another vote for that. To be fair, I havent tried the exile, and since its still pretty new I doubt many other people on here have tried it. If youre buying without trying it on first, I would buy from whoever has the simplest return policy.

    I just got the Exile. I haven't had a ride with it yet, but it seems ridiculously light in the S/M size. Fits well and looks cool too!

    Rode the Backbone Trail in Malibu last weekend using the Exile and I'd have to give it my vote of approval.

    The Exile is so light, you hardly notice that you have a helmet on. I also have to recommend the Halo headband - no sweat in the eyes
