Roux is a relatively new brand to us here at DiscoveryParts but in the short time we've been acquainted, we have grown to love them. With the company's style and safety state of mind, their helmets are quickly climbing to the top and competing with best selling brands like Stilo, Arai and Bell. In this review, we are going to delve into what makes Roux a great company and how their entry level helmet contrasts with the entry level helmet of a much more experienced brand, Bell.

An Introduction to the Alpinestars 2017 Tech 1-ZX Nomex Race Gloves 3X-Large
"If you're in need of some Alpinestars racing gloves but your hands remind you of those 2003 Hulk Smash Hands that barked 'You won't like me when I'm angry!' when you socked your little brother in the face, then you probably need to come see us at DiscoveryParts - the only place in the country that you can find Alpinestars 2017 Tech 1-ZX Nomex Race Gloves in XXXL."
DiscoveryParts Product Duel - RaceCom's Trac-Com vs. Chatterbox's Tandem Pro 2
Here at DiscoveryParts, we back all of our products. But what sets us apart from other businesses is that we aim to offer you options and variety among products and help you find the best fit for your racing lifestyle. In the June newsletter, we explored the differences between the Stilo Composite and the Roux R-1 Composite helmets. In this episode of DP Product Duels, we introduce RaceCom's Trac-Com and Chatterbox's Tandem Pro 2. So if you've ever wondered "What are the pros and cons of each brand?" or "Which one is best for me?" - grab your popcorn and sit back because the battle is about to begin.
DiscoveryParts saw the first pre-production versions of Roux helmets almost two years ago. Days, weeks, month and truly years have gone by before we received our first two pallets of final production SA2015 Roux helmets in fiberglass, composite and 2 versions of carbon. Why is there a Roux helmet? There is already another powerful brand that was the originator of the fully featured and customizable auto racing helmet, Stilo.
So why make Roux?
DiscoveryParts finally receives a SA2015 Bell M8 helmet. We first saw the spy pictures over a year ago and finally put our hands on the pre-production piece in December for the 2015 PRI show in Indianapolis. At first glimpse it was apparent this was not the previous Bell M4 with a different decal on it.
