Comfortable and looks good
04 February 2024 by Elliot
It's a comfortable helmet to wear.
I personally also really like the look.
The internal sun visor control is easy to interact with, the larger visor aperture offers a great field of view.

The ability to attach a plate to mount an action camera is useful as it avoids having to stick things directly to the helmet.
However, as it's screwed in it's awkward/ next to impossible to easily remove. Once the camera is stuck on, you can no longer access the screw. I got around this issue by drilling a hole through the GoPro mounting piece so I can get a screw driver through.

I'm not entirely sure what the little air pump thing just inside the chin of the helmet is supposed to achieve.
It inflates small bladders around the ears. I haven't been able to feel any difference, so don't really know what it's trying to accomplish.

Great Value Adventure Helmet
20 January 2024 by Paul
After reading good reviews on this helmet and not wanting to pay Arai money, I took advantage of SBS's 20% off.

Comfort is good and there's no obvious points where it's causing discomfort. Adjustment using the air pump definitely works and allows just the right amount of tightness across the face. Whether it will hold the air over a longer period of time I just don't know. Worth remembering that the air must be released before removing the helmet.

Pumping it up and then releasing it could be described as more work than normal but that's the price you pay for the convenience of a custom fit.

I've used it on a bike with a very small screen, basically a naked bike, and I was extremely impressed by the lack of buffeting. I honestly expected it to be moving my head around at 70 mph but it didn't and that's a big bonus.

In terms of noise, I can only say that this is the first helmet where I've listened to music at 60-70mph and heard the tune clearly (wearing filtered earplugs).

The only reason I would potentially drop half a star to 4.5 stars is that on a 4 degree C winter day I could feel a bit of cold air which came via the chin skirt. I used a different neck tube and it pretty much sorted it. This could of course be a bonus in very hot weather.

Pinlock was completely clear in that cold weather.

Build quality is really way above what you'd expect for the price.

Great value helmet.

Great Helmet
27 December 2023 by Tim F
Love the cut-outs for intercom speakers which makes wearing the helmet so much more comfortable than my previous helmet. It's also very quiet at speed but the best thing is the size of the Pinlock. No more looking out of a pillbox slot, when the non Pinlock covered edges mist. Pretty much the whole visor area is covered meaning you can ride on cold wet days leaving the visor down even when waiting in traffic and have super clear vison.

Great lid, brilliant shop, good deal
11 December 2023 by Jay
We used the whole 'click and try on' system to order 3 different lids in 2 sizes for my wife to make sure she got the best possible fit. We went to MK and she tried them all on and we went home to decide. A week later we ordered this lid delivered to home for free. It's a brilliant system and I can't recommend SBS enough. The ADV-9000 is lightweight, has excellent graphics, a quality feel about it and had £60 off so what's not to love?

Five star comfort
08 December 2023 by Kim S
Very nice Helmet, light in weight. Construction of the Helmet is of lightweight modern materials for High Strength and Quality oozes from this lid also being 22.06 to the latest test specs, really comfortable I went for the colour purely for safety reasons other colours are available. I also purchased an Exo-com which is a breeze to fit

Decent quiet helmet
30 November 2023 by Derek B
A decent helmet the only thing is the pinlock visor very hard to fit the groves or cut outs are not right you have to trim them a little bit to make it fit without damaging the silicon seal otherwise you have to buy a new one at £45 not good I'd let the SBS fit it so any damage it's for them to replace it
But otherwise a good helmet quite good visibility recommend it

Adventure Hemet
05 November 2023 by Paul M
I tested this new Helmet today 5th Nov 2023 for Comfort - Noise - Speaker pocket comfort - Internal Visor operation - External visor operation and overall quality of Internal padding and External build quality .

Also the ease to change the Visor and Ventialtion.

I give it 5 stars on all these and was surprised how stable it was at higher speeds.

It is Lighter than my £500 previous ( Top end Helmet ) and has a premium feel to everything.

It's clear that the designers / devolpers are motorcyclists as a lot of thought has gone into this Helmet.

I am very impressed and SportsBikeShop's service has been faultless.

Better than the competition
16 October 2023 by Matthew C
I didn't even think to look at this brand until I saw how out of date its major competitor now is. It's light, it's incredibly well made, it has recesses for headphones or a comms unit. The internal visor works well, and I love that it comes with dark and clear external visors.
