Joe Rocket Lid

So, whose going to be the first to buy and review one of the new Joe Rocket helmets for us here at MH?

Joe Rocket makes good gear, but helmets? Are they going to fall into the realm of Icon helmets?(junk) or be a quality helmet for the price ($249, kinda like HJCs with graphics)

its a new HJC helmet with joe rocket logos on it. it uses the same visor as some HJC's.

not to say its the same as every other hjc, its got some new features. for one, if you look up through the bottom you can actually see the vent holes. should make for some good ventilation.

more or less though, expect it to be on the upper end of HJC's quality. IMO the AC-12 carbon is probably a better helmet.

wow. i didnt know that. I thought that it was a JR with all the badging, didnt know it was just manufactured by HJC.
In that case Im with you, id rather spend a little more and get the CF HJC or a little more than that and get a Shoei.

Thanks for the enlightenment.
