  • When did the Phenix TL-2 helmet start to rival Cairns in cost?

    The Phenix leather was the big thing around here about three years ago. I jumped on the train (briefly) before going back to Cairns and the main reason was due to price. I paid $385 shipped for my new TL-2 with a shield then. I see now they are the same price as a new Sam Houston.

    When did this happen, and why would anyone still buy one?

    I just received my tl2. ordered it in Jan. The base price was $409 w/bourkes It was $460 so still about $100 cheaper than n5a from when I was looking. I ended up getting the 1884 miller upgrade, leather upgrade, name stamp, (no bourkes) and I paid $575 and that was to my front door. I looked today for another guy and tl2 base price jumped to $457 compared to my $409 2 months ago! Leather lids are getting crazy in price anymore. Thank goodness I'm fortunate to have some clothing allowance or I would still be in a plastic lid.

      A guy I worked with paid 460 for his last year. Also even if the cost was the same the weight is why I would buy them. I had a N6a for several years then, bought a TL2 in my opinion you cant beat the weight and comfort.

        I agree I originally was going to go with the New Yorker but after trying on the tl2 it was night and day for comfort, weight, and balance.

          My TL2 was under $500, a little better than a year ago. I bought the ratchet upgrade, high temp bourkes, and one or 2 other upgrades I think. I love the way mine fits, and it isn't nearly as heavy as the Cairns.... I'll buy another one when its time to retire this one.....

            Hopefully you all have better service from yours than I had from mine. Mine crumbled under very little heat exposure, Phenix fixed it for free (even though they told me it was my fault) and I sold it. The guy I sold it to immediately had issues with the brim coming UNGLUED from the impact cap.

            I don't buy helmets that are glued together anymore.
