Better than the Flux, has Q.C. issues
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Bottom line, this helmet should have been called the Flux 2. It has the same great fit and looks even better, it's lighter, with updated padding and more vents. Mine came with the Detox 1 system (same as the Flux), not the Detox 2. Fine by me, but they are advertising Detox 2 so someone needs to check on that. Had to lace the straps through the system as well, so you might have to do that. Overall I am pleased, I've owned a Flux for years and it was time to upgrade. I got the Striker as a gift, so I don't have anything to say on the price difference.
