“Excellent quality, comfortable and quiet helmet”

Written on: 09/08/2014 by bmw e30 (1 review written)

I've done a few hundred miles using this helmet so i will give my opinion on it. My previous 2 helmets which i still own i alternate between, are a Shark S800 and a Shoei XR1000. I've always had Shoei's up until i tried the Shark S800 3yrs ago and found that the Shark S800 fitted my round shaped head just a little bit better than the XR1000. I tried many helmets on in the shops, AGV's K4 Evo, K3-SV, Shoei Quest, Shark Vision R series 1(previous model to the Series 2 of 2014), X-Lite 603 and HJC… Read Full Review

Bmw E30's Response to bmw e30's Review

Written on: 20/08/2014

UPDATE.
So i thought i'd update you on the helmet. I had to purchase a inner lining and Cheek pads in the Large size(they were XL), as after a drastic haircut it brought my head measurement down to 59.5cm and meant the current XL internals made it too loose on my head. Cost was £29.98 for the cheek pads and £29.98 again for the inner head lining. So £59.98 total. Helmet fits much better now.
A negative i have found though which is almost a deal breaker for me is that the chin strap securing/fixing point is low on the sides of the helmet meaning there is little in the way of 'give' for where the chin strap position naturally hangs. Its too close to my throat and so presses against my Adams apple which is very uncomfortable. I've tried on my other 2 helmets, a Shark S800 with seatbelt style buckle, and Shoei XR1000 with its double D ring and neither have this problem. Both have the chin straps anchored to the sides of the helmet higher meaning longer length straps and so its easier to vary where the strap sits under your chin. Its mostly a problem on upright seating positions as on a sports tourer your leaning forward and head back so the strap moves further away from your throat, on upright bikes your position means your head is tilted forward and the strap digs into your throat. What to do about it, i don't know. I've had the lining out, to try and tweak the strap angle, i've stitched back the strap padding to lessen the amount of material in the neck/throat area. Neither has sorted this problem, so if you are trying out this helmet make sure the strap isn't against your throat as its the hard toothed plastic part of the strap that is against it.
The other issue i find is the high brow means come late afternoon and evening when the sun is getting lower, i can't block it out by tilting my head down, and the sun visor creates a double reflection in itself-lower the visor and you can see a 'ghost' of your face as the sun reflects off it, then lower the sun visor and you create this double ghost. Only way around this i found is to lower the sun visor just halfway so you look through the main clear visor but can block out the sun with the sun visor being partially lowered.
I'm still happy with the rest of the helmet, its very quiet, fit is plush, it's visor seals well and there's no wind noise under its skirt, but i wish it had double d chin strap, and i may purchase a dark visor as there's no substitute for one in my opinion.
