“Very Noisy and poor Bluetooth”

Written on: 06/05/2013

Bought 2 Vipers, one for me and the second for my wife. Second week had to return mine for a replacement as the right speaker didn't work, several months later returned both helmets to have the Bluetooth replaced..one circuit board fried the other the charging stork in the centre broke. Week later and my Bluetooth refused to charge. Have now sold my wife's and returning mine for full refund. Bought Schberths which i should have bought in the first place. Vipers were noisy and Bluetooth although… Read Full Review

“This helmet is for those looking for...”

Written on: 30/05/2010

This helmet is for those looking for all-in-one-but-cheap helmet. For features contained in it(Bluetooth, built-in shades, flip-on), it is a fantastic value for money. However, do expect some nasty surprises in terms of quality and manufacture glitches.

Few things to think about if you are considering to buy one:

1. Speaker quality is below average (even cheap earplug headphones sounded better). Not good for listenenig to music, ok for phone calls.

2. Pairing takes a bit or skill and a lot… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/10/2009

A great all round real value for money bluetooth helmet. Paired first time with my ipod touch for stereo music streaming and my blackberry for calls and switched between both when calls come in. Even pretty good sound at 70mph.. I love the drop down inner sun visor, it works really well... Had it 4 months and nothing to complain about so far… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/08/2009

Got two of these a few months ago. I prefer this Viper RSV121 helmet to others I have tried for fit and comfort. Is a little noisier than some helmets but the bluetooth is really useful. Generally for bike to bike we use the mobile phone (O2 free calls), and is really useful while riding through town where you may get split up, or for asking when to take a break.

I also use it with my GPS for navigation instructions which works really well, it switches to calls then back to GPS when call… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/07/2009 by donkane (1 review written)

I live on Isle of Man so we pay big time for everything, £150 x 2 in this case(uk price £99). We got baddly let down by Autocom Who were told our needs and deadline and then sent only 1 kit... Worse as they then told us you cant hide the bits needing water proofing on a Cruiser.No mention of this in any of there bumf! Viper RSV121 is only option at 2 days notice so we go on a 1000mile european tour for 5 wks. Tried out today on Bike to Bike up to 80mph and they work fine as long as you stay… Read Full Review

“The Viper RSV121 is a good helmet although the...”

Written on: 12/07/2009

The Viper RSV121 is a good helmet although the Bluetooth gimmick isn't all its cracked up to be. Wind noise is quite bad on this one so you'll be cranking up the volume on both your device and the helmet if you go anywhere above 40mph. Good cooling options. Visor is a pain to get off with you having to pry side panels off the helmet. Clearance for the visor lift is minimal so if you have a fogging shield attached the top will get scratched.

Note the Bluetooth 1 model allows voice activated calls… Read Full Review

My Viper RSV121 had an intermittent fault with the right speaker, cleared up then went entirely. Contacted dealer who sold the helmet who told me to contact distributor. Turns out helmet has only 6 month warranty. Had to pay to get it to distributor. Compare this to SHARK who give 5 YEARS… Read Full Review

I bought one to replace my old Viper with mono Bluetooth which worked a treat but got bounced on a stone floor.
One speaker didn't work from new & I was advised to "wiggle the wires". The Bluetooth unit was eventually replaced by the manufacturer, but then the whole thing stopped turning on at all. The manufacturer replaced the switch/control which was faulty, but now the volume doesn't work in either direction & the Bluetooth breaks up a lot making music pretty much unlistenable. I've seen another review which mentions the poor optical quality of the drop down sun visor - it's really not good. In short, this lid is a good idea, poorly executed. It's cheap for a reason. The retailer made a lot of helpful noises but in effect just told me to contact the manufacturer - I won't be going back.

Written on: 02/09/2008

I thought the Viper RSV121 helmet would be the ultimate accessory to modern motorcycling, but what a joke. The build quality is low compared with other helmets. I like to wear tight helmets when new to allow the padding to settle I have only worn this helmet half a dozen times and it feels like a large the button on the front for operating the flip cant and I mean cant be opened with gloves on as a matter of fact I can hardly open it with my gloves off this helmet offers Bluetooth what a joke… Read Full Review
