    Call 'em what you want -- dual-sport, adventure-touring or Caberg's "street enduro", these helmets have become super popular.

    But the new XTrace has a slightly different take on the formula.

    It's slightly more biased towards street riding, because truth be told, that's where about 95% of these helmets get used anyway.

    This means that the XTrace is more comfortable for real-world riding, yet it still looks the part for all of the GS jockeys.

    It's relatively lightweight for a dual sport helmet and it has a nice, modern shape and the interior is surprisingly comfortable.

    It's also reasonably priced and although Caberg is turning to Asian suppliers for some of their lower-end helmets, it has good overall quality and the shell feels very sturdy.

    Special attention has also been paid to the shell to keep the external dimensions as trim and lightweight as possible.

    The extra work has paid off, because the XTrace even in the larger shell size for the XL helmet looks, feels and weighs like everyone else's size L.

    Let's take a closer look...
