I could buy that right now if it wasnt for my paranoia. I LOVE the price, but I just wish I could find a full face helmet for that price. But like you said, it gets the job done and it's SA approved and that's what matters!

So no complaints, no issues. That helmet gets more confortable everytime i wear it. And since it is SA2010 certified, it can also be used for karting, car with a roll bar or a motorcycle, most motorized sports.
Nice to hear a opinionated review about it (as well as a picture), thank you! And I agree, the black helmet really does look fantastic. I can only imagine it with the smoked visor!

Whereas, on the track.. in a car... a car helmet is designed to take an impact in the same location more than once, if you are strapped in yor car correctly. They are more expensive for this reason.

I wouldn't go so far as to say "so how much is your head worth", as some say... but it is something to think about....
Hmm, I didnt know that, now it makes a lot more sense on why it costs so much more (besides being fire resistant). I'm glad I knew that before I let my friend convince me into getting a motorcycle helmet in the meanwhile! I dont want to dish out extra money anyway for a helmet that I dont intend to use for long or would give me issues at the track regarding if I can use it.

That good ol' red (Boss 302), white (GT/CS) and blue (5.0)!
