Caberg Drift is the new full face helmet from the Italian manufacturer, and it oozes style. The big visor, simple air vents and the aerodynamic shape combine to make this a great-looking helmet.

The helmet is made of tri-composite fiber (carbon, Kevlar and fiber glass), and there’s also a full carbon option, with a weight reduction compared to the tri-composite version.

The Drift comes equipped with a quick-release visor, making it easy to remove the visor for a good clean or replacement. There’s also an integrated sun-visor: a great feature that surprisingly many helmets are still lacking. Flicking the sun-visor down is easy with the switch on the left-hand side of the helmet.

The helmet is fastened with a DD ring as standard. As you’d expect, the lining is completely removable and washable, made with hypoallergenic and transpiring fabrics. There’s also a removable chin guard that helps increase or decrease the amount of air getting in the helmet.

The three air vents are easy to use with gloves on. The lower vent on the chin guard is designed to drive air directly to the inner side of the visor to avoid misting (although a Pinlock lens comes with the helmet). The top vent channels fresh air inside the helmet through numerous air grooves, while the rear vent gets rid of hot and stale air from the helmet.

The helmet looks stylish, feels light and comes packed full of great features. It’s a great option if you’re looking for a helmet around the £200 price point.
