REVIEW:Hyperx cloud revolver

I have been using this headset about a month.

Metal frame, but the adjustment are swingarm made of plastic, which is the weakest point of the headset.

Because the plates are swingarm, the plastic will not get as much stress,as it would if it was not swingarm, but still it would be nice if it was made of metal.

I did go for the cloud revolver because of the steel frame, which is good if you drop it on the floor.


  • Good sound

Much better sound than Logitech G430(this might not be so noticeable for everybody, but for me it is.)

without too much bass.Things I barely hear , I now can hear even better than the G430.Noticeably better sound than the Logitech g430 headset, I have been listening to Jimi Hendrix a lot ,everything sounds much clearer, the cymbals are a lot more noticeable, the bass guitars are more noticeable,even imperfection, like static sound from old recordings,or distortion effect is much clearer. or when the singer got the mouth too close to the mic I can hear the difference much better, than on the g430.On the track ”Little Wing” the Glockenspiel was much more noticeable, I could clearly hear what instrument it was,unlike g430 and the other headsets I have been using in the past.

  • quite comfy
  • Preside volume wheel
  • Braided cable fabric cable
  • The adjustment work well, and keeps the headset on your head,even when your head is upside down
  • 3.5 jacks
  • light weight
  • decent microphone
  • detachable microphone
  • should fit big ears,its easy to just move the cups to the desired position, my ears are average size and I got the space for 1 ringer tip,both on the top and and rear of the cup.
  • easy to put on with one hand


  • gets hot and sweaty after a while.
  • If you got big ears that stick out the ears will touch the plate,as long as you got average , or bit over the average but not ears that stick out,then you are on the safe side.
  • the suspension self-adjusting headband-swing arm should be made of metal instead of plastic,for better durability.
  • if you move your head fast,or hit your fingers on the steel frame it makes a sound similar to a church bell or hitting a metal tube against some other metal depending on where you hit it, but this is not a big deal-breaker for me, I already knew about this when I purchased this headset.
  • might not fit your your head is above average size,mine is about 59cm,which result in about a half cm space between the steel frame and the a headband
  • Synthetic leather, instead of real leather, I had bad experience with synthetic leather, it usually wear out quite fast,but time will tell.
  • The palstic parts:

    Damaged plastic part


Damaged plastic part


Things to improve:

  • swing arms and the plastic parts on the headband should be made of metal.
  • make it easy to take off the cushion.
  • bigger cession for big ears that stick out.
  • spare cessions should be included,which is nice when its hot and you sweat and you need to wash the cessions,then you can just put on the fresh spare cessions.
  • replace the synthetic leather with real leather
  • more metal parts instead of plastic.



If you want a headset that don’t break by just using it one year,this headset will do the job,the steel frame makes sure of that.

But there the is room for improvement.

Some of the best Kids/small person MTB bikes November 2016

Note that this article is work in progress, at least now you know some more brands or bikes.

These bikes are in no particular order.

If any of you have found more bikes or child specific stuff, be so kind to comment below to share with us.

I have no experience with these bikes, So I will say my opinion, and my experiences with the components used,I will not decide for you.

This article will be update when I find more good bikes
order and title of article might change but I publish this right ow so you can see it, sorry if there are mistakes and typos.

there are few kids bike brands that make good bikes for kids,and there are even fewer adult bike brands that make kids good kids bikes,and there are not many kids brand that make good kids bikes for 24 and 20 inch wheel size.

Some facts:

Kids should have as safe,light,strong,and as well performing bikes as adults.

for the kids to enjoy riding the bikes for a long time the bikes must be light.

Fit is very important,Adjustable reach for brake levers, right crank arm length,saddle that fit kids,I have seen kids riding on saddles that are painful to sit on,the shape of the saddle the length of the saddle the height/depth of it,Its all very important,a flexible saddle is a must In my opinion for optimal comfort.

When you want to buy a bike please ignore the silly marketing tricks, like using using A celebrity or pro riders name, or a company’s name..

this is a good example of what I mean: Hyper Cam Zink Edition is a good example:

I see many kids got awful bikes, and jump and ride downstairs jump off walls, and they do it on awful and dangerous bikes. the kids I saw ridden like Seth does in this video.

Shame so many kids ride on bikes that is junk,and they don’t know how dangerous it is,and the parents got no clue.

but in this guide I will show some the best kids bike I have found on the internet.(custom builds only commercial products will be listed here)

In my opinion bikes like these should be illegal to sell, but sadly they are not.

And then there are the fake dirt jump bikes that are marketed as bikes that can withstand abuse. which they can’t do at all, bikes with Sr Suntour xct and xcm forks,the plastic adjustment, pops out, flexing, knocking sounds, or almost no rebound, depending on the model.

Some bikes have warning stickers on that say the opposite of what the ad say.

I see many kids got awful bikes, and jump and ride downstairs jump off walls, and they do it on awful and dangerous bikes. the kids I saw ridden like Seth does in this video.

If you are a beginner and want to do advanced riding I you need to subscribe to this channel.

Most of the world-wide big bicycles brands,only make cheap awful bikes for the kids, or really basic hard tails.

Many of the Kids MTB guides, are misleading, many of the bikes got awful components.

Many of the kids bikes I have seen are absolutely awful junk.

Almost every thing is wrong with these 100 dollar bikes.

Just some of the things that are wrong with them:

  • they are very heavy,a too heavy bike can be dangerous, the bike was glued to the ground I could no jump it.
  • suspension that does not do the job,the most common fork on these cheap bikes are ZOOM.
  • mechanical disk brakes that are hard to brake with for kids.
  • saddles that is torture to sit on.
  • tyres with no grip

Example of kids bikes that are marketed as mountain bikes, but they are to they are garbage, they are not made for Drop-Offs and jumps, and shredding in the woods.
this is junk 14 KG for a kids bike is  stupid.

There are many choices on the market right now,

but If you want the best speed bike without spending too much I recommend buying from Direct Sale brands.
This video shows me jumping a 24 inch fat bike that is way too heavy:

The List:

Here are some real mountain bikes for kids. all from XC to freeride,downhill

Lil Shredder Prodigy


Lil Shredder Phenom
24″ WheelsRace face narrow wide ring make sure the chain stays on.(unless you pedal at extreme speed oride down 40-50 degrees steep strairs) so A chain guide would be nice.
As you can see, Shimano ZEE RD, which can take a beating,short cage is excellent, specially for kid’s bike so now they get clearance too.

Full suspension 26er trail bikes:

Enter a caption

10 speed 1 by drive trail with shimano Deore shadow plus, and Rock Shox fork  & shock & hydraulic mineral oil disk brakes from shimano. I think this is a nice package,but  a chain guide would be nice
this model got 11 speed 11 speed Sram drive trail and high end fork.
This kona has a budget is a budget built, but no clutch on the rear derailleur not good,I think the extra you would pay for a clutch is worth it.
Transition Ripcord,1&op_usm=0,0,0,0&iccEmbed=0&cache=on,on&bgc=247,247,247

2016 Trek Fuel EX Jr

So far this is the only high -end bike for kids from trek.
X-Fusion Performance Suspension is tuned for lighter riders
10×2 setup makes sure that the kid got all the gear range he or she needs. the bike got Deore shifters which are lighter to push, than the Deore XT M8000, so shifting should not be a issue for kids.
Propain Yuma this bike got good components
Propain Frechdax   Its a shame they put Acera RD, would be nice with Shimano Zee instead,but if the kid crash a lot and ruin RD’s this is not a issue.
Shame they did not spec it with clutch Rd instead.Not as well speed as the other bike in this guide,but this is a Store/bike shop bike, so you can expect it to,not many kids bikes come with a dropper post,I think Norco made the right choice wit this bike by doing so. smaller ring that a adult would so the low gear wont be too hard.As most kids wont ride as fast as adults anyway.
Shimano Zee gives ground clearance.

This bike got no clutch Rd.
