Best helmet ever owned
Glad I went with my instinct with this helmet! The quality and finish is second to none Inside is so soft and what a finish to the the the material best I've ever had. I've owned few different makes but this is far more superior and wow how light I would recommend this helmet if your considering.
Great quality for the price
First off, very light. I'd just got back into riding after 10 years away so the first priority was to buy a new helmet. I could afford around the £300 price point so to see this with £180 off RRP was a no brainer. What helps was that I had an old HJC helmet so knew the size which turned out to be consistent. I wasn't intending to be brand loyal or anything as 10 years ago I didn't see any of their stuff around. Really quite tight first time on but did the fitting test of taking out the cheek pads and checking the fit over my head which was perfect. The chin curtain is great but it keeps popping off when I remove the helmet... The air intakes are really effective. Out of habit I had them fully open as I would have done on my old cheap helmet but after 40 mins riding in around 12 degrees C I was beginning to get brain freeze so had to fumble around trying to close them! I put the smoke visor on immediately as that's what I prefer. My preference is to remove the breath deflector as at motorway speeds it was getting pressed into my nose slightly and for me slightly restricts visibility; having never had one before I don't miss it though. However it does work well if you keep it in but I prefer to pop it the visor open when I stop to get some air in. Visor locks down securely. I can't fault it but then I'm on my way up in the world of kit. I'll certainly be happy with this for years to come. Thanks HJC and Sportsbikeshop!
Ghost helmet because you don't know its on
First looking at the helmet made me feel joy, the second was the build qualities. Placing the helmet on was like it was made for my head. .fitted perfect and didn't notice it was on hence (ghost) I presume. Hardly no wind noise, real awesome helmet .. looking for faults is the only fault, faultless, great work HJC.
Nice and light
Great design (looks better in real life), nice and light and pretty quiet too. It's also comes with a Pinlock insert, smoke visor and stickers which is a nice touch. Only issue is that the vents on top act a bit like mini parachutes and pull the helmet back quite hard when your outside your bubble.
No Lorenzo fan but an awesome helmet
Ive always had Arai for the last 30 odd years but this is almost as good quality and in most ways better fit. Comfort, visor fitting and lightness and not as noisy as my Arai. All in all mega pleased apart from the graphics but that's why it was cheap!!!
It was the unusual artwork that initially attracted me to the helmet. I knew of its history having been designed by a youth with downs syndrome. The helmet is striking to look at and the paint is quite deep. It is light in weight and the internal padding is plush. So far I have had no issues with the visor fogging and the inclusion of a fog resistant insert lens is a nice touch. The quality is as expected given its price, however, its marked down a point, as outside noise is not greatly reduced and I would have liked it to come with a chin curtain. The helmet arrived well packaged and protected from damage. This is my first purchase from Sportsbikeshop and I was very impressed with the service. Overall, I would recommend the product.
Superb service and product
This helmet is the best fitting helmet I've worn. After having several big branded helmets before this HJC, there has always been some sort of compromise, but the Lorenzo Ghost model is as close to perfect as I can expect. 5 stars for the helmet and 5 starts for the service from purchase to delivery.
Bought this helmet to replace my Arai RX7 Corsair. Fit is very good, basically it is made for Arai heads. Paint is exceptional and the decals are really well made. Scheme is one of the best I have seen in years. It is a very comfortable helmet and one can wear it for hours without any frustration. The ventilation is not bad either but not as good as other helmets. Same applies to some of the materials used but the majority is very well made. Close to the Corsair but not a match. It can be justified though as it costs a lot less. Also with the helmet you get a lot of goodies such as a second visor (medium tint), soft case, a Pinlock visor insert and some Lorenzo decals. I believe that this helmet is a very good replacement for my Arai at a fraction of the price.
