Arai

How much do you value your life? That's what you always hear when choosing a new lid, so maybe it's time to tell us all too!

Arai

Postby Dale » Sun Jul 23, 2006 8:49 pm

I have a big head like the rest of my body and yes the wife says I am in all proportion :)

Arai for me is the best helmet, they are so comfortable to wear. Noise reduction is not that cool tbh, neither is getting cool.

I would really like one of them flip up lids but have not found one yet that I can wear due to the chin guard actually pressing against my chin for some reason.

I own the Arai SV, they are mid priced but the thing that shocks me is the price of a visor, in excess of £45 :(

If you have a helmet that you swear by, that flips up, let me know please.

The Cabergs get a good review. It's what I shall probably move to next time I change.

Doug's got one, and I think Artur has/had one too.

And since they have a clear outer and dark tinted inner visor, you shouldn't need to buy another one anyway! :D

My old man has a Nolan N-102 flip up, he's been pretty happy with it. It also has the integrated tinted shield, similar to the Caberg.

Nolan helmets

Postby 24c » Tue Jul 25, 2006 6:44 am

and Nolan do an integrated bluetooth headset conversion for their range, but I guess so will all the others soon...

Not sure I want to chit chat on the phone while riding though, as I need all the help I can get :shock:
I've just started riding the GTS again, and it'll be changing

I have had a Nolan flip-up before, and it was a very good helmet.

Back then you needed 2 hands on the helmet to open it, and the inside was not removable and therefore not washable.

So when I went looking for a new one, I ended up with the Airoh SV55.

This flip-up has excellent shape, and hugs your face beautifully.

It has an integrated dark sun visor that can be used with the helmet open or closed.
It also has a removable / washable inside, this is a big plus in my eyes.

The helmet you see on Ansco's head in his avatar is also an Airoh SV55.
Cheers,
Chris

Schuberth C2. Expensive but quality and finish worth it. I also have an overly large bonce, (shut the f**k up you lot before you start) normally a 61 or 62 shell size and find this fits really well with the chin gaurd not coming too close. Ventilation over the top is excellent and it too has the integral tinted visor. Also supposed to be the quietest flip front on the market.

The Schuberth is indeed a very good helmet, but....
When I look at the price, it is not so quiet anymore.
I can hear myself screaming just thinking about it...
Cheers,
Chris
