I no longer care that much about how helmets look as long as they are quiet. I wonder how well that thing seals out wind noise.

That is my only concern also. White is a good color, no decals, just white.

Wonder if it's like Arai, and they suck $35 out of your wallet for a replacement shield.

I had one of these Porsche Design helmets at one time, my wife got it for me before we were married. It was leather lined and had a little seatbelt type chin strap on it. The visor went up inside the helmet and had a golden outer layer on the shield for sunlight anti-glare protection a bit like a spaceman's helmet.

I remember these helmets, they were way ahead of there time, and as I remember the price was crazy too. You can spend as much as you want on a helmet now. I think as much as $5k now.



My wife just bought a helmet that has a slide down inner visor, much like a fighter pilot helmet, she loves it, and no longer has to deal with squeezing in her sunglasses

into the full face helmet.

My thoughts exactly...'Obi-Won'.....however, competatively priced for the features offered.

Just like anything new these days...they try to make things more attractive & appealing to the public, however, any parts or accessories will be costly. :(

What's the safety rating? Is it the European standard?

I've got one of these Zox Genesis seen here. It is really comfortable and it has the inner visor which is great in bright sunlight. I tend to ride it with the chin piece up at times in city riding. The only thing I don't like is the silly vent at the very back which sticks out.
