i love the multiple impact system in the receptor bug and am really looking to buy one, but I'm having issues justifying spending that much on a helmet. The cheapest i could find it for online or in a store is $129, is there anywhere I could get one for less? thanks. and obviously, +k.
i totally know what you mean, i wear a helmet. the thing is, my helmet cost me $15 at a closeout preseason sale. I have hit my head pretty damn hard and it has been fine. For the extra money, the protection from a single super hard impact cannot be that substantial over another helmet on the market. BUT the multiple impact deal is a whole other story. that is really what would be worth paying for.
The Poc Receptor Bug is NOT a multiple impact helmet. That being said, it is one of the best helmets on the market and it's worth the money. If you want a multi-impact helmet go with the Poc Recpeptor +. I upgraded to this from a Bug and I couldn't be happier. I usually hit me head multiple times a year and a helmet has saved my ass a number of times so in my opinion it is well worth the money.
ok so is there any main difference between recepter crown and receptor bug other than no earflaps and goggle strap cuz those dont really matter to me, becuase from the pictures it has a weird liner in it
"Defective" is not the right word, but it would be deemed unsafe by the company. Most if not all helmets are good for 1 concussion grade impact, and something most people don't know is that they are now dated, typically between 3-5 years from production, because the materials start to break down.
