and as for HJC, i wrecked and my helmet never even hit the ground. This is of course because they are extra super light weight and it helped float my head above the ground.
so is this an opinion or crash? nope just opinion again

bottom 2 aren't too impressed
is that a safety disconcern or dissatisfaction w/ the visor? i;ll tell you......it's w/ the visor, nothing to do w/ safety, 1 guy has bought 7 arai's over the yrs. yup he must hate them.

damm y'all messed up a good thread :eh:

btw, is your suomy DOT approved?

there is no outside org. other then DOT/SNELL that test helmets , so all we have are incidents like these and others to make a determining factor. were all adults and this is an adult decision. there's plenty of info out there, to help you make a decision on what kinda lid you want.

my wife chose a paint job (shoei-hotwheels) over top of the line lid. i've seen less incidents/complaints about ARAI/SHOEI and i'll stick to those brands.

Sounds like it wasnt fitted properly. That's the problem with anecdotal evidence, it doesnt prove . Neither does dropping a helmet off a building or trying to put a sledgehammer through it...because a helmet is designed to have a head in it, and how it protects that head is independant of whether you can crush it driving over it with an 18 wheeler. How it absorbs and dissipates an impact is most important.

Real experimental evidence of any value is impossible to obtain privately unless you have a lot of money and time. Just buy the helmet with some certification (DOT or snell) that fits your needs and most importantly your head best.
