Helmet choices
« on: June 26, 2017, 04:23:54 AM »
I'm going to kick this one off about helmets because I'm still undecided and would be interested in your views on helmet type.
What style do you use and why?
I'm currently tying to decide whether to go full face flip up/modular, or an open face.

I go with a full face helmet. In case of a crash, they have the most structural integrity and thus the best protection. I would entertain a modular but any open face design would be out for me. My next one will be full face with bluetooth. It would be nice to hear gps when I'm in unfamiliar territory.

I have a full face modular. Having been in one major crash I know the importance of head and face protection. A German study was done that found the majority of impacts during a crash were to the head and face. For that reason I've never been a fan of open face helmets.

I like the modular because I can flip it open if I need to eat, drink, or cool off during a stop without having to take my helmet off.

I'm decided then. I'm going modular.
Now the fun begins choosing one ;D

Decision made  :)
I'm going for a shark Evoline S3 with the swanky jaw guard with stows neatly at the back of the helmet when not in use

That Evoline looks wicked! In a good way.

Just ordered plus a replacement comma unit as my last one died.
