Bontrager Rally Helmet

Bontrager Rally  Helmet - Grey

Stock just in…

MBR (UK) – Bontrager Rally.

“The Rally is packed with all of the features you’d expect to find on a £80 lid…and then some. It’s fully in-moulded for added strength, the rear of the helmet extends further at the back for extra protection and it’s bottom-wrapped to reduce wear and tear. It’s also super-comfortable – pop the Rally on and you’ll notice there are not pressure points or hard spots. The Headmaster retention system guarantees a snug fit with no more effort than twiddling the dial at the back of the helmet with your finger and thumb. It’s even covered by a crash replacement policy that guarantees you get a new helmet free of charge if you smash it up within the first year of use.

However, the one feature that we really like on the Rally, which doesn’t even get so much as a mention in Bontrager’s marketing blurb, is the massive range of peak adjustment. Why do we think this is cool? Basically, it not only allows you to adjust the peak out of you line of sight, but also creates enough room to stash your goggles underneath. This means you bump the peak up, along with your protective eyewear, for climbing, and then tear them down again at a moment’s notice for shredding. In fact, all that’s missing from the Rally is a goggle clip on the back of the helmet to ensure that you never lose them. Still, at £79.99 for a helmet of this calibre we’re not complaining.”


Snow trails


Every now and then you get one of those days, often a hard frost. A dumping of fresh snow. Your local woods start to resemble something from the film Narnia.

Rather than sinking into the mud, the trail freezes conditions change massively. Next time it snows consider 2 wheels rather than 4. The below image was taken on Stanage Plantation bridleway. A old packhorse route from the Valley back over to Sheffield.
