Quality, striking helmet
I was sceptical given the price, however this is a good lid. It's very narrow when fitting it, but fits me fine once on. Everyone's head is a different shape, so it won't be for everyone, but then no helmet will be. It's a fairly unique design, which if I'm being honest, is the reason I considered it initially. Having owned Shoei and AVGs in the past, this doesn't have a discernable difference in the feeling of quality, so I'm one happy camper. Give one a try, you may be pleasently surprised
Great Looking Helmet
First of all Great service from SportsBikeShop.. Ok.. The helmet came well packaged with a few extras (2 Visors & Peak Attachment) The paint on the helmet is great with lovely detail and does stand out... The visibility from this helmet with the smoked visor on if amazing.. you feel like this is a open face helmet at times.. Little bit noisy but I knew that before buying.. I think these are great looking helmets and for the price you really are getting something a little bit different but well made
Love the fresh design and shape of this helmet. The removable innards revealed a recess for the intercom speakers which I was quietly surprised by. Everything is removable for cleaning and feels high quality construction. Vents and features are great, best helmet I've owned and certainly the most badass looking!
Only issue I had was having to spend 100 aus dollars to send it back due to sizing issues, this I do not blame sportsbikeshop for whatsoever it is merely an inconvience that can occur with any online overseas purchase. Measuring your head will not always guarantee a proper fit. From the suppliers end, excellent delivery time, excellent packaging, and excellent product. Returns are also very easy and simple process.
I like it
I like this helmet, I took a risk buying it and I know what my risk was the oval part is the frame of the helmet itself, so the putting on and taking off of the helmet will pull the head off you ha, but the actual inside once your head is in is great fit to be honest the view through the visor is great, easy to change visors on the fly if needed, vents are real good, if its cold out you will feel it, people say its loud, it can be at times, but if you have bluetooth device with noise cancelling and those things that press the speakers to your ears, the wind noise reduced, same as most mid range helmets anyway, only lost one star to me as the getting on and off which is a pain but doable.
Awesome Helmet, amazing price!
Customer service was absolutely top notch. I'd seen the helmet cheaper elsewhere, so I sent them a price match request and within a day they'd messaged me back saying no problem, honouring it no quibble! I'm used to companies normally pulling out all sorts of excuses not to, but these guys were brilliant! The helmet itself is a real head turner and the field of view is much improved from my old Shark Skwal, the only downside is that it's a little louder with wind noise, but that's because it's more open around your chin/neck area - which is great for me in summer in terms of breathability, but will probably need a buff or something else in winter. The vents are a lot better too compared to the Shark, with the two small slide vents on top being easier to open and close and the one in the chin guard allowing far more air flow than the Skwal could. Other than wind noise (which isn't actually that excessive on my daily commute) it's an awesome bit of kit with top quality padding and a ridiculously easy visor swap out system that doesn't risk breaking every time you try or stripping screws like my Skwal did (2x broken visors now with Shark and not through dropping, they just have a really bad design flaw with the way the visor's claw shaped fitment attaches it to the helmet mechanism). I also actually prefer the D-loop fastener on this compared to the ratchet system too, feels a lot more secure, so it's definitely a recommend from me.
The ventilation part of the helmet is really good. You have to try really-really hard to make the visor foggy for a brief second while riding. Actually the visor is glossy not like on the picture. Great helmet with awesome grafics.
Comfortable, stylish, and very ventilated
First impressions out the box were that this helmet is LOUD. It stands out from a lot of other helmets, and if you were to put a reflective or colourful tinted visor on it, you'd be the first seen everywhere you go. Fitment is a weird one. At first, the helmet felt horrid on my head, my neck started to hurt, and I was getting slight headaches, but once I let it wear in and let my body get used to it, it's very comfortable now, even for my round oval head. You can see everything within your field of vision out of the visor, and when you let that airvent open, the amount of air that rushes in is amazing. I got dry lips within 2 minutes of riding. The only niggle I have is that the way you open the chin vent is ridiculously unintuitive. It's stuck in the inner shell of the helmet, so it's near enough impossible to open and close it while you're going. Overall though, a fantastic helmet, and well worth the money to stand out.
Best lid i've owned
Superb lid. Fits great. Decent build quality too. A better lid for me than "premium" brands I've owned recently. Stands out too - I like the lairy graphics, but they're probably not for shrinking violets. Some might not like the double D fasteners either, but I'm fine with them.
