Great helmet, visor slightly disturbing
I've been using this helm with great pleasure. The quality and feel of this helmet is absolutely amazing. At the moment of opening the box I did notice the mudshield was slightly bent, but was easily fixed by bending it back (it's quite flexible). Just hoping that they will make replacement mudshields in the same color pattern. The only downside I had with this helmet is that the visor is distorting lights when riding with it in the dark. It also doesn't go really well with glasses, the reflections in the visor make lights look blurry somehow. I cleaned thoroughly but with no effect. Would require a different visor that's not reflective or distorting lights. Not sure if anyone else has had this problem, but for me it basically makes me only wear the helmet during daytime, not what I expected from a helmet at this price (maybe it's the curvature of the visor in combination with glasses?). FYI I do not have this issue using the same glasses on any other helmets, I've used (Shark / Shoei).Read more
Is it worth it
If you're reading reviews & checking prices on this helmet you're probably asking yourself (as I was) can I justify paying sooo much for a helmet. In a word, yes. The first thing is the fit. Watch the Arai videos, measure your head and trust them to make the helmet size you need rather than guess. For me the fit is so close there is no movement if I shake my head but it's so comfortable straight out of the box. Visibility is amazing. It's got a big opening but the width is fantastic for your peripheral vision especially on life savers! One concern I had was the Pinlock. Lots of reviews saying it's hard to fit due to the visor shape. It is, but check out the instruction videos, set the pins to the widest setting, wear rubber gloves to prevent finger prints and don't be afraid to stretch the visor as shown in the video. My Pinlock touches in the centre but this doesn't affect the visibility. First commute in the rain and I can honestly say there was zero fogging, even better than my Evo 1 with the chin bar up! I ride 365 so this helmet will not last forever, if you only ride occasionally it may be a bit of a luxury, but if you can afford it buy it, you won't be disappointed.Read more
Even better than my Signet Q
Had to go up a size form my Signet Q but it's a perfect fit and very comfy. First ride was a round trip from Manc to Glasgow in the wind and rain and it performed as it should. Lighter than my previous helmet and seals better. I may actually take the chin part out as I couldn't stop my glasses misting but with the Pinlock the visor stayed fog free. Can't fault it and can't fault the Sportsbikeshop return policy when I chose the wrong size. Great price too!Read more
