5.0 out of 5 stars a great helmet, 9 Oct. 2012
As fans of flip front helmets this was bought to replace an HJC I-Max for my better half. Liz is ordinarily indifferent with new gear, preferring to stay with the known quantity of existing equipment.

However, a quick test in a shop whilst on holiday opened her eyes to the comfort and fit of this helmet which quickly resulted in a purchase - a testimony to how 'nice' this helmet looks and feels. The first ride out endorsed the initial reaction - very quiet (far quieter without earplugs than the HJC was with earplugs), easy to use visor/chin bar system and exceptionally comfortable. The vents have yet to be properly checked for effectiveness during warm weather.

The only down points worth noting are:
* visor misting - not noticeable worse than my Nolan at misting up, but potentially less effective at clearing suggesting that the anti mist vents are not as effective
* the chin 'skirt' which fills in the gap between throat/neck and the helmet bar brushes the face when the bar is being lowered. Frustrating on its own, but really annoying when an intercom boom is close to the mouth as it knocks it away. We will be removing this skirt at the risk of making the helmet noisier
* limited space to fit an intercom system, everything being close fitting unlike the Nolan, HJC, and Shoei helmets. It is possible to fit an autocom without cutting but you need to work at it
* replacement visors (not that we need one!) appear difficult to source online but should be available through the dealer network - although dealers are few and far between. When Givi were asked to name my nearest dealer they failed to reply - not encouraging!

As always, helmet 'fit' is very personal so whilst it has been great for Liz please try before making a purchase.
