Scott Sports has long gone beyond just developing bikes. While a ski pole was the first self-developed product, there are currently no limits and many sports are supplied with functional clothing and protectors. As one of the first companies to present the relatively new helmet last year Mipssystem, an insole that absorbs the rotational forces in a fall and thus drastically reduces the risk of injury. The Scott Stegohelmet, which I was able to test extensively over the past week, has exactly this system.
The look of the helmet is rather inconspicuous. Although it looks quite voluminous and heavy, the design manages the balancing act between a simple shape and a modern look very well. Fifteen ventilation openings should also ensure good air circulation on the head in summer, through the MRAS II Fitsystem, the helmet can be easily adjusted in circumference, while the already mentioned Mips-Insole to provide more security. In addition, the Stego with a closed middle bar on the top of the head the perfect basis for a helmet camera mount.
The workmanship of the test model is very solid, but a closer look reveals a few minor blemishes. The green outer skin is cut relatively unclean and does not always fit XNUMX%, especially at the edges. Dirt can easily accumulate here and there is a risk of the skin coming off the helmet. The closure and the adjustment system are compactly modeled. The yellow one Mips-Insole is fixed in four places on the inside of the helmet by strong rubber bands. You can move the insole a few centimeters in any direction, and it always slides back to its original point.
Here, too, the workmanship is sharp-edged and leaves a rather uncomfortable impression. Looking at the weight is more positive. With 350 grams in size M, the Stego to the reasonable all-mountain and enduro helmets.
In practice, it surprises Stego with a very comfortable fit. Adjusted, it doesn't slip on your head and leaves a good impression. The upholstery is a bit thin compared to models from other manufacturers, but offers acceptable comfort. It's a bit annoying Mips-Inlay. The sharp edges are particularly noticeable due to the thin padding on the forehead.
Despite the moveable Mips-The insert slips Stego not even on fast, rough sections. It is consistently inconspicuous and offers a high level of safety with its voluminous design and low rear. The only drawback in this respect is the ventilation. This suffers somewhat from the closed top of the head.
The Scott Stego is a solid helmet for all-mountain and enduro use. However, it shows some minor weaknesses in processing. Especially the sharp edges of the Mipsdeposit leave a bitter aftertaste. However, considering the relatively low price of 169 euros for a helmet equipped with this system, the performance ratio is ultimately positive.
