I've read all the information on the site, and I've read articles about it. I'm just wondering if anybody has ever worn one or even seen one.

I'm curious to hear also - i dig the graphics a lot and the photochromatic shields sound like they would be awesome - is there anywhere that carries them locally? I hate to order a helmet online - have to try them on

I have no idea. If Motorcycles Unlimited will order one for you, they guarantee the fit, so if it doesn't fit, they won't make you pay for it.

I would order xxsmall, so I'm pretty safe. I'm just happy they have my size - so far, I haven't found a helmet that fits. And I really love the idea of the shield. They sell them separately, but I don't know for what helmets.

The one you posted is DOT and ECE, so it's not bad by any means, but I've never seen or heard of them before. Don't think CycleGear carries them to try on either.

Found a size chart and size tape to download for fitment.

Yeah- I got all that... I'm guessing they're European, so probably not many here will have heard of them.

I love the graphics on that one....but.....

Never been too keen on them since I heard they were just a graphic. I think Wiki & akuma both buy their helmets from Vemar & regraphic them. I couldn't wait to get my hands on an Akuma after seeing all the features.

Once I did, it just felt cheap & uncomfortable. I dumped it for less than what I paid having never worn it.

^^ hmmm... I haven't read anything about that. One magazine site said they were award-winning (but I think that's just the shield). There are only three different graphics, the rest are plain, so would seem silly to buy a plain helmet just to rename it and sell it, but I wouldn't be surprised at all.

It aslo says it's light at 3.1 lbs - how does that compare with other helmets? I never weighed mine.
