Default Reebok Helmets

I'm looking into buying a better helmet than what I have. I was interested in buying a Reebok 8k but IW does not have the 8k. Did Reebok not make an 8k helmet for 2011? Also is the 7k for 2011 comparable to the 8k or is it a lower model?

To me, it looks like the 7K is the 8K with Reebok on the front instead of their logo. And that the 11K is the upgraded version. But I'm no helmet expert.

no...7k has the same 6k plastic subshell (with carbon print) and no Microdial = the old 6K...carbon fiber (like 8k) is used olny for the 11k, which got a new shell plus Microdial II.

no they only have a 10' model of the 8k and the difference between the 7k and the 8k is the microdial and the updated front logo but the 8k has more colors. I got my 8k from H o c k e y M o n k e y . C o m
