Why We Use the Sunbrero
Yes, yes, we know; this is Australia. We’d be fools to not think of sun protection. The thing is, you can get other sunshades, they’re most probably even a bit cheaper; but let’s face it they don’t make the grade. They don’t last, and they never fit the helmet just right. The Sunbrero, not only has a wide elastic band that will fit under your helmet clips, but also has the additional velcro adjust buckle that keeps the fit snug. Add to this that the brim is just wide enough to provide protection without obscuring your view. It’s the helmet shade for the professional. If you’re wondering, we use the Sunbrero on both Petzl Vertex helmets and Petzl Strato helmets as well as the Kask SuperPlasma Helmets.
