Picked up this helmet for around £40 cheaper elsewhere as a replacement to my old helmet. It's my third helmet, fairly experienced rider so I'll start with the pros.

Pros:
Very easy shade slider on the top of the helmet, slides and clicks into position nicely.
The suede-like chin guard is a nice feature, stops those chills that a neck warmer misses.
Soft and removable cushioning is a god-send. I'm a builder, so always full of dust after a job, nice to be able to easily remove and wash.
Visor clicks down tightly, it is a little stiff when un-clicking while riding, but not bad.
It has the capability to install a bluetooth headset, which is handy for the sat-nav.
Quick-release chin strap is very useful.

Cons:
Visor does seem to steam up a little quickly.
Loss of some peripheral vision, as this is my first flip-front I can only compare to my previous full-face helmets, but it means I have to turn my head more to do a blind spot check.
The helmet is sturdy, but the plastics are a little creaky.
The flip front button is big, but difficult to open with gloves on.
The matt paint job, while cool looking, seems to scratch easily.
It can be a little noisy if its very windy, closing the vents seems to quiet it down a little, but the visor steams up more, so its a 50/50 solution.

Overall very happy with the helmet, good quality build, nice styling, easy to maintain, there's obviously better helmets available, but if you want decent protection and useful features for a cheap price, I definitely recommend this helmet.

Well im a new rider, This is my first helmet so please bare with me as im sure other people will review it as fairly decent.

I have used this for a number of months now, but i find that having the visor open on the first notch just seems to make a vortex with the wind rush into the helmet. Also having the visor closed it seems to fog up very very quickly unless going fairly fast.

Also when the visor is closed its very difficult to open when actually moving with one hand.

The quick release strap is a godsend with gloves on. I have also spoken to two other riders with the same helmet and both of them are very very long serving motorbike riders and have the same issues.
I have heard to put a cable tie around the nose part of the helmet to help with the wind vortex and the fogging.. I shall give this a go.

Overall the helmet is very comfortable, i must admit i tried on about 12 helmets before choosing this for the comfort side of things... Noise is drowned out very well. Also keeping the chin flap on the helmet helps with the wind bustling around your chin then up the helmet.

i've worn this for a year and a half and have got to the point that I cant wait to get rid of it. My previous flip up was a Shark, and while it fitted fine the fiddly visor was a constant source of irritation so I switched to Caberg and have regreted it since. here is what I found.

Pros

Feels fine with the chinbar in the up position

The sun visor is easy to use with the lever on top of the helmet.

and that's about it.

Cons.

Quite a lot of wind noise, but to be fair I had the same problem with the Shark

Visor constantly fogged up and could only be left open at a minimum of half an inch which is too much.

My main problem was that my chin touched the chinbar and I was constantly lifting the helmet to get comfortable, the material on the bar was very hard. A friend who wears the same size found the same problem when he tried mine.

And finally, the lining at the bottom of the helbet has started to crack along the bottom which is strange as it is left standing on a soft surface when not in use and it is only worn a couple of times a week.

This was the first Helmet I owned and a bit naive when it came to purchasing Motorcycle helmets. I used this helmet when I had Riding lessons using a Honda CB500. As with all lessons your speed is always kept under the speed limit and I never really associated the wind noise and turbulence with the minimum speed I was always doing. I passed my test nearly a year ago now and since then i progressed from a CBR600f to a Kawasaki z1000sx. Now I am a much more experienced rider and travel at much higher speeds and have a lot of fun. The Caberg Konda helmet above speeds of 60MPH is just ridiculous when it comes to noise and turbulence. The weird thing is it seems noisier on the left side as this is where the rubber bluetooth port is. Just for an experiment i put on my headphones and set my iPhone volume as loud as i could make it without pulling a face. Then jumped on the bike and after getting above 40mph, YES 40MPH! I couldn't even hear the music in my headphones due to the wind noise. I have definitely decided to change my helmet to something much better - a Shark full face Speed-R Sauer which cost twice as much but is 20x a better helmet and QUIET!

Pros:
Meets safety standards to protect your head.

Cons:
1. Now have ear problems and suffered constant ringing in my ears after riding with the Caberg Konda helmet.
2. Quite a heavy helmet
3. Visor Constantly fogs up when stationary (even though it has an anti fog screen)
4. Way overpriced for what it is. Even if it was £60 I still wouldn't buy it. Payed £130 for it and feel completely ripped off.

TOP TIP for new riders - Don't by cheap, its a false economy because you end up replacing most of your gear within a year.
