    Custom Wilma UVEX

    I really love my Piko U3 and uvex helmet combo. Its very comfortable and super fast to set up. Just snap and go. Every once and awhile I like to throw my wilma on my helmet to get more light for one of the more technical trails I ride. I really dislike setting up the velcro mount and the uvex helmet does allow the use of the standard lupine helmet mount but because of the bug screen between the vents it sits higher than I like. That led to having to remember to bring the right helmet. This got old fast and after looking at the now discontinued bolt on wilma/betty handlebar mount I realized I could now mount the wilma (or betty for that matter) just like the piko U3. I just did this, so I have not tested it. It is however very secure and the light will not be moving around, its nice and tight. It also comes in lighter than the standard wilma plus helmet mount combo. 120 grams vs 143 grams. It feels really nice on my head.

    Got a ride in tonight with this setup. 2 full hours on my SS and it never moved. Tight as a drum.

    Really nice setup you've created there. I'm jealous now as I am using the standard wilma helmet mount and this is definitley an improvement.
