Customer Product Reviews
Very good value
Comfortable, inexpensive exactly what I was hoping for. Took a while to get used to the visor opening mechanism but that's because I'm used to Arai. D ring a bit more fiddly than my Arai but overall its a good lid. I would def buy again. Sportsbikeshop service excellent as usual.
Pleased with this purchase. Coming from a line of Shoei helmets (most recent a Neotech) for which I've always been a small. I bought a small and it seemed pretty tight at first but has loosened off well and is pretty comfortable. I think that considering the price it is very good value and I'm pleased with it. The quality of the vent/visor buttons, strap and d-rings is not the same as a Shoei but it is 1/3rd the price so I'm happy with that. It is quieter than my Neotech for me and that surprised me. Not used it in hot weather so dont know its venting properties. Location of the main visor catch is annoying and doesnt come to hand easily with gloves on I'm finding. Overall, not perfect, but at this price a very good option.
First Helmet in 40 years
Things have moved on in 40 years. After working through all the options available on Sport Bike Shop (there's a lot), I finally decided on the HJC FG-ST in white. Really pleased with my choice. It's a good fit helped by the fact I was right in the middle of a large size. Sun visor seems great and a pinlock included was also a bonus. A good keen price for a fiberglass helmet was also good. Not used in anger yet but I am sure it will not disappoint.. turned up quick and was confident that if it did not fit returning was not going to be an issue.
Very good helmet - well worth purchasing
Bought for my wife, she loves it. Super comfortable, packed with features ie internal sun visor, pin lock anti-fog system and 5 star Sharp rating. Ventilation system also very efficient. Not to mention the awesome graphics! I own a Shoei GT Air and I must admit I'm a little envious!
5 star Sharp rating at a keen price.
Nicely made lid with a 5 star Sharp rating. Less than 60 helmets in the world attain 5 stars and all will cost more than this. Comfortable and well designed. Double D ring closure is a bonus. Excellent service from Sportbikeshop as I've come to expect.
Great value helmet
This helmet was my first bike helmet so I don't have much to compare it to but it is well priced and seems to offer a good level of kit for the money and I've had the helmet for a year now. I believe mine came with a pinlock system to fit in the visor which made a massive difference and completely stopped any fogging. The in-built sun visor is handy and the ventilation seems pretty good. It seems a little noisy to me but it is fine for my commute or weekend blasts. For longer journeys I've used ear-plugs to counteract the wind noise. It's just a great all-round, good value helmet with a full 5-star safety rating from the Sharp Assessment Programme. I got a price-match with SportsBikeShop for an even better deal and I've only ever found them brilliant to deal with. Amazing customer service.
Good value for money
Medium, solid comfort received 5 stars on SHARP tests. Good price for fiber helmet. It has sun visor and includes in the box a pinlock. The air vents work and the removable interior is very nice. The materials are reasonable, the visor does not hold half open, a bit noisy and is not solidly tight (bought the size indicated for my head). The visor causes slight distortion and the speaker cavities are small. It's worth the 140 euros.
Great touring lid
Sizing: Ordered Xl 60-61 as old IS16 is a L60, too big, sticker on L is a 60, size changed no problem within a few days, Much quieter than my old IS16 with the visor down and slightly lighter too, the sun visor doesn't drop to the nose guard like the IS16 so it's noiser with just that down, visor lock is good and better having it where you actually open from, it's a touring helmet so quietest when upright, if you dip your head for some tank down action wind noise increases,air vents work great and easy to open and close in gloves, great for the 5 star sharp, and value for the price, object to having to pay £70 more just for a few stickers though, the price you pay for looking good, grabbed a black visor to complement the lid which is great but no darker than the drop down
Ghost rider Graphic is Awesome
The feature-set for this helmet is great for the price, the included pinlock is well worth it, the helmet graphic looks amazing, and the 5 star SHARP rating enstills confidence, the inside has grooves for intercom units, and it's very comfortable, 5 star helmet
Good and Bad
I've owned two of these helmets (first one got damaged when dropped). I really liked the first one, the fit, comfort, visor and the sun visor were all very good, especially for the price. The only downside being its quite noisy but you can reduce this by closing the vents. The second one SBS price matched but it didn't fit as well (same size but a lot tighter) and the visor ratchet system wasn't as strong and the visor kept dropping down which was very annoying. I returned the helmet to SBS with no issues and they refunded me. I would have given the first helmet 4 stars (dropped one for the noise) and the second one 2 stars so overall 3 stars seems about right.
Great helmet for the price
Both myself my wife use this helmet. I payed a lot less for my one as it was discounted, but even though I had to pay more for hers, there wasn't anything which could compare with what it offered for the £200 mark. I do find there is a lot of wind noise with it. That's my only complaint really. Good quality helmet for not big bucks ( and also 5 star safety rated).
AGV replacement, good choice
After 5 AGV's, fancied a change. Generally good reviews and decent price. Only wore it a few times, but feels a good fit. The sun visor is a must for me now on any helmet. I wear earplugs but does sound quieter than last helmet. Only gripe I have is the speaker recess could be deeper. I have a Cardo Q1 and they now press on my ears to the point of being distracting. So looking for some thinner speakers. Good helmet, glad it came with pinlock insert included as this does add to the cost generally.
