Simpson Darksome Solid - Matt Black
Customer Product Reviews
Good and not quite so good
Good build quality, Good ventilation, Good vision, Good looks. I'm a 57 this is a 57/58 standard fit. I found it wasn't a snug fit. It fits ok, doesn't twist on the head, isn't loose but doesn't fit snugly as a 57, might be better if you are 58.. As a result slightly noisy with wind noise. I first used it on a long weekend trip away. Ideally I wouldn't use it for long trips touring again but am more than happy to use it on day to day and a long day visiting friends up north. But as I say if you are the larger sized head then probably no problems ..
Best looking Mod Helmet
This helmet is lightweight for a modular. Functionality of the visor, chin bar and sun visor are all great. Would like the sun visor to come lower but may not have suited all nose shapes. I saw a lot of sizing chat on this helmet - I wear a medium Bell and a medium here is fine. Not a super quiet helmet but very comfortable lining for hot and cold weather. Vents are easy to reach and chin bar can be opened with one hand. However you need to close the visor first. Was surprised to find a pinlock was included! Was very handy in recent rains and works amazingly well in all but the worst downpours, at which point it's probably not worth riding anyway. Overall first impressions are great.
