I am one of the riders that Love my open face, but this helmet with the open face feeling and the full-face protection is worth looking at. I will try to see if i can find a supplier over here.



Thanks for the info.

I have to agree with some of the comments following the article. I use a flip-face and like to ride with the visor up. I like the protection of the chin bar locked down which you would loose with the Givi. Sometimes on a hot day I will flip the chin bar up as I go through a small town to get some air on my face, and I can do this one-handed.

Also, what about our headsets? Will this new helmet accommodate them?

It looks pretty flashy, but for me, I think I will stay with what I have. You know - old dog - new tricks - kind of thing.

My son has a full face helmet that I just tried on to see how it felt.

Claustrophobic it was to me. My helmet I was using last year was a HJC full face, flip front. Even after the accident, and it getting jerked off my head, it was still locked solid.



The helmet pictured is something that I really want to look into. My son's helmet restricted my vision to a narrow "window" just above my eyes and to just below my cheek bones.

I like the looks of the thing, but I'm wondering about the wind resistance with the visor up. Looks like a wind catcher. I like the wider vision with the visor down.

If you crash when you've got the front flipped up there is a greater chance of neck injury due to the leverage on the flipped up front.
