    Uvex FP 3.0 - such a good helmet that I never see anyone else wearing

    I don't think I've ever seen anyone else on the trail with this same helmet, and I don't know why, as it has some great features and has proven to be very protective.

    I have been unlucky enough to crack two of these helmets in the last couple of years. Both times the helmet did a superb job, not even a headache afterwords.

    My most recent cracked helmet is an incredible testament to their safety. OTB incident, I fell down 4 feet vertically, and about 10 feet out (conservatively). So quite a long flight. Splatted on a large slab of rock, hitting my head very, very hard. Although I had other injuries, again I did not even have a hint of a headache.

    So, thanks Uvex for keeping my noggin safe.

    well i think one great reason for that is that uvex distribution absolutely sucks. i was targeting the fp3 this past offseason. got so fed up with finding viable places to buy it and compare prices that i got a giro athlon instead

    Our team is sponsored by Magura/Uvex, most of us wear their helmets. Great adjustibility, mine happens to work great with my lighting setup too. Team mate busted a helmet on the road, the road surface ground away the front right corner section. No concussion. I posted a pic on the magura direct facebook page.
