Good Helmet but not for Glasses wearers

Great helmet for the price, had a HJC flip up prior to this and this helmet is better quality. I would have given it an 'Excellent' but the glasses I wear for riding are tight to get in and start to hurt the side of my head after about an hour's riding. Had to order 2 sizes larger from what I normally wear.

Excellent for its Price

I rarely write reviews but I felt compelled to offer up my opinion of this helmet and Sports bike shop. I've been purchasing kit from Sports bike shop for numerous years and they've been incredible within regards to customer services, price matching, stock and super fast delivery. Within regards to this helmet, i purchased it as an interim due to coming off my bike on some mud and not wanting to ruin my weekend lids. So after riding with this for about a month I decided to review it. I'm used to wearing full faced helmets and own an AGV K5 / GT Air so I decided to try this as a second open face (I had a carberg Duke) I expected this to be a stop gap for a couple of weeks until I found my replacement but as it stands I'm keeping it as my main commuter. I do around 40 miles a day to work with this lid, and to my amazement the quality for £70 has been beyond my expectations. It looks very similar to my Shoei gt air, it feels VERY similar, its plush inside with cut outs for my sena (which even the more expensive other brands didn't have) The opening mechanism is amazing, it's the smoothest I've ever known, as is the sun visor. Its quiet, not Shoei quiet but for a 70 quid helmet I was pleasently surprised. It even comes with a pin lock which fits better than my other lids (and hasn't failed yet) The pros and cons list: Pros; * Very comfortable * Quiet for its price point * Pinlock and good sun visor * Looks good * Exceptional opening / closing mechanism * cut outs for helmet audio Cons; * Small visor (it's quite a restrictive view coming from bigger visor helmets) * Lack of optional visors (if thats your thing) * Visor closing doesn't seal as tight as some higher end brands (obviously) due to their type of seal gasket. That being said I don't get any rain leaking in. Overall incredible helmet for the price, well worth a purchase. Like I say, I'm using it as my daily commuter currently due to its ease and immediate comfort from the get go. Thanks again sports bike shop!

Super helmet for a bargain price.

Excellent helmet that fits well. I am a medium and was concerned it might be too small as per other reviews but no worries. The pinlock inclusion is great, not something usually supplied with cheaper lids. The flip and visor system seems good so far. Only a few days use but good even in the torrential rain. We'll worth the money.

Very satisfied

I tried a flip up helmet before and didn't like them but I needed to get one so I could show my face to gain entry to plant without taking my helmet off in the pouring rain. This helmet is a snug fit but will loosen up over time. No problem getting the flip to work with thick gloved hands and the drop down visor is easy to use with thick gloves on. I didn't read the helmet description and was very happy to find it came with the pin-lock visor and it works. This helmet was just for work but I find I'm wearing it all the time. For the price a very satisfying purchase.

Great budget helmet

Very pleased with this high vis helmet well constructed it has an in built Sun visor. It is Pinlock ready and the visor is included. Sportsbikeshop fitted mine free of charge in store. Helmet is a comfortable snug fit and wind noise is minimal. Everything clicks firmly into place when raising and lowering the face piece. A lot of helmet for the price.

Super bright helmet

I needed a helmet which can be seen in the coming autumn/winter months. The flip up is easy to use and wind noise is reduced as well. Overall a very good helmet.

Excellent value for money

I've previously bought expensive helmets - Schuberth, Arai etc and this helmet seems as good if not better in terms of quality and fit. I'm off the road at the moment so cannot comment on how quiet/noisy it is, but I expect it to be good because of the smooth profile when it's all closed up. My last helmet was a Shark Evoline and while it was a great helmet (particularly the way the front opens and the chin bar can be stored at the back), but the chin bar is not quite as smooth a profile against the helmet and is therefore a bit noisy.

I'm really pleased with this helmet. For this price to get this quality, surprising, even anti-fog insert comes with it.

Quality helmet at a very reasonable price

The fit was perfect in fact the best fitting helmet I have purchased. The finish and the extras that come as standard. The sun visor which I consider a must, the Pinlock insert which are great in the winter, to stop you misting up and are only on the most expensive helmets normally. And the service you get from Sportsbikeshop are all very impressive, in all very pleased.

Surprised by how good this budget priced helmet is! Good fit, may be slightly small for stated size. Nice large visor with tinted drop lens. Tint has a conveniently placed actuator and the action is quick and secure with tint visor locking up and down. The flip chinbar has a lock for the raised position, great for hot days at slow town speeds! Recommended!

Great helmet, brilliant supplier

Great helmet for the price, first flip front helmet I have bought. Ordered my usual size Medium but it was just too tight, did the returns form as directed and had a Large delivered 2 days later with no fuss. Helmet is good quality, comes with a drop down sun visor and Pinlock clear insert. I am a glasses wearer and this is the best helmet I have had for no issues with the glasses. Will buy from Sportsbikeshop again.

Excellent Buy

One of the best helmets I have used, ticks ALL the boxes. Unbeatable service from Sportsbikeshop.

Mixed feelings

In general the lid is ok, but I did not like some details. At the arrival the drop down sun visor got stuck inside the helmet. The new one, I had to glue the shell to the EPS liner at cheek level because it was loose. Again after one day riding the drop down sun visor got stuck too. Don't bother guys, I won't ask for another replacement (you know why), I'll leave it just like it is. Aside that, the helmet is quite comfortable and surprisingly silent for a modular helmet.

Located in Ireland I was apprehensive about purchasing such a product online. Delivery was extremely fast, Helmet was as described, fitted perfectly. If I had needed to exchange it for a bigger/smaller size, the necessary paperwork to make that process painless, was included in the packaging. All in all, a delightful buying experience and I'm seriously happy with the quality of the Helmet..

Better than expected

I vacillated about buying a helmet online but decided to try it and this was better than I hoped for. It is a good fit (a tad tight on the cheeks but loosing up) and excellent fastenings. Good quality and a very good price. Also the delivery time was marvelous.
