This Caberg Riviera V2+ Helmet looks smart, with matt black and hi-vis yellow stripes adding a touch of style to an otherwise understated lid.
Putting this Caberg Riviera V2+ Helmet on, the it feels spot on; in particular, the cheek pad and ear area are very comfortable. Locating and fastening the chin strap is a natural and intuitive process; a reassuring set of clicks lets you know all is secure. The chin strap sits perfectly where it should, and there’s a well placed tab for quick release.
The Caberg Riviera V2+ ‘s visor is large, its closely to the chin and offers excellent all-round vision. In case the sun comes out, a tinted visor can also be deployed. The mechanism to position the tinted visor looks a little iddly but in fact is very straightforward; even with a gloved hand it’s easy to lower it. Again, the it of the inner visor is good, sitting just above the nose and ofering good sun protection. It’s much easier than stopping to put on sunglasses.
The recent weather has been unseasonably mild but it would seem that the Caberg Riviera V2+ Helmet is equally wearable in most weathers, and ofers good protection from the wind.
The main visor is easily removed; just a quarter-turn of the quick-release mechanism and of it pops. The tinted visor can also be removed if required, although this is a bit iddly and a small screwdriver is necessary to depress the clip. I can’t see any need to remove and clean this on a regular basis, but the facility is there in case. The material liner can also be removed; just unpop the popper on the cheek pad and work around the Velcro to release the lining.
This Caberg Riviera V2+ is a good quality helmet with a reassuring weight and quality feel, ofering understated style and decent comfort. It comes in sizes XS-XL and with various colour and graphics options.
