Played with them at OR. Head width is like a C4 with a lobe shaved off which seems close to C3 head width. Nice bit didn't make me want to sell my master cams. DrApnea

Been a while since that testing happened, so quick clarification for those who weren't around then.... Yes, of the 30-40 CCH Aliens I pull tested a disturbing number smeared out of the test fixture well below their rated strength.


Hmmmm... I had that happen in my own "testing" once. It looked like a perfect placement of a yellow alien and then failed when I fell on it. The lobes were deformed, "smeared" as you say. If your explanation of the metal claimed not being the metal used is true, what a truly piece of shit company CCH was. Not that this is a newsflash at this point ;).

Is it weird that the only thing I've gotten out of this thread is that I need a new helmet? Ryan Williams

I think your current helmet fits well.
