    Default lite force helmet question

    morning pride's lite force helmet is made of "fyrgrlass". Is this just a market ploy to say fiberglass? They seem to be quite a bit cheaper than bullard, morning pride typical makes quality equipment. Is this helmet a good purchase?

    "Fyrglass" is a brand name for their version of a high-heat fiberglass. It is marketing. It's up to you to determine if it is a good value: wear all the helmets to see if they are comfortable, ask about replacement parts and costs, look at reliability of the distributor and manufacturer.
    My comments are sometimes educated, sometimes informed and sometimes just blowing smoke...but they are always mine and mine alone and do not reflect upon anyone else (especially my employer).
