Modular Helmets

Are they any good? Or do they bust up easily?

They're not bad, althogh I'm currently unaware if any that have a higher standard than D.O.T.
A few years back Nolan was kind of the standard for modular helmets, but KBC has done a good job with theirs and produces a better helmet than the Nolan IMO.
A modular helmat has some nice features but the main downside I can see besides the possibility of hinge / latch failure, is they are typically heavier.

Yes, not good for the race track but perfect for touring or general use. I wouldnt trust it at anything higher than legal speeds....and they are all heavy. I like the schuberths the best, I thought about getting the girl one because of the flip up but it's so heavy I dont think she'd like it over time.

I have "another" Nolan N100 after taking a 60mph header couple years ago.
Full shoulder/head impact, EMT in the ambulance was able to open the helmet after a little wiggling. Not even a headache.
I have since bought 2 more.
Don't notice much more wind than my RF900 and SO much more comfy in the summer, IE can open it at a traffic light etc. It is abit heavier but i never thought about it tho.
would be a great long distance helmet for some.
Would DEFINATLY go to say cycle gear and try on a few and find the size u want then get one online
Have a friend that has the Zeus, less than a hundred bucks and he also loves it.
