    LS2 MX453 Helmet

    1 review

    LLS2's MX453 Adventure gets it done with a lightweight fiberglass tri-composite shell, moisture-wicking technical fabric liner, and a flip-up face shield to protect you from the elements. The MX style shell offers more clearance in the chin area to allow you to breathe when working hard off-road. The chin vents and top vents are fully adjustable, so you can get just the amount of air you need, and there's an exhaust port at the back for true, flow-through ventilation. Cheek pads are cut from one solid block of high-quality foam using LS2's 3D Laser Technology for a secure and precise fit. The peak is designed specifically to allow air to flow through so it won't lift at high speeds, but still protects you from roost or branches. Every ride should be an adventure and the MX453 can help make the adventure more fun, no matter how brutal the ride is. Best blend of features of an off-road helmet and a street helmet so you can have better control over the elements while you explore the world. > Lightweight, tri-composite fiberglass shell. > Ultra-large eye port for better visibility. > Peak to block the sun and debris has large opening to avoid lift and drag, to help the rider stay fresher and avoid fatigue. > Fully adjustable flow-through ventilation. > LONG OVAL FIT. > DOT / ECE approved. Five-year limited warranty against defects in material and workmanship. Note: Sold with Clear shield, other colors and tints sold separately.

    Shoei RF-1200 Helmet

    1 review

    Shoei RF-1200 Helmet - Solid The pinnacle of perfection, the RF-1200 represents the culmination of 56 years of helmet heritage and has been designed, from its inception, to be an industry leader in comfort, performance and protection. The wind tunnel tested shell has been optimized to provide a compact and aerodynamic shape, reducing wind-noise, buffeting and weight. Shoei has not only designed the RF-1200 to be one of the most comfortable helmets on the market, but also one of the safest, meeting both DOT and SNELL M2010 safety standards. Whether you are a track day enthusiast or cross-country cruiser, the RF-1200 will allow you to ride with confidence, freeing you to concentrate on the road and most importantly....enjoy the ride. Slim And Light Weight Design One of the most important features of a quality helmet is that you hardly know it’s there protecting your head. Shoei has reduced the weight of the RF-1200 by using a slimmer design and building a distinct line into the side of the helmet that also serves as an accent. As a result, the new Shoei RF-1200 is lighter than any other Snell certified helmet in the current Shoei lineup. Shell Construction The slim design of the Shoei RF-1200, with its distinct accent cut line, widens the bottom of the helmet to help ease the process of putting the RF-1200 on or taking it off. Further advancing the comfort of the AIM+ shell is the industry leading four shell sizes that the Shoei RF-1200 comes in. The impact-absorbing dual liner consists of two layers incorporating different densities, helping to effectively balance the potential impact applied to the more rigid shell. Quietness Through advancements in the aerodynamic shape, improved interior linings and a new and improved shield system the rider will experience a very quiet and comfortable riding experience. The interior of the RF-1200 has achieved a balance of a comfortably soft fit and a firm, stable hold. The new design of the cheek pads also improves the motion of the neck, thus helping the rider to check traffic behind him/her for example. Shield System The CWR-1 Pinlock shield features ribs on top and bottom of the shield to improve rigidity and eliminate bending of the shield caused by wind pressure or the opening and closing of the shield. Independent beading in the top and sides of the Shoei RF-1200 help to keep the seal of the shield tight and eliminate any excess air. In addition to the CWR-1 shield, Shoei has developed a new base plate for the RF-1200. The Quick-Release Self-Adjusting base plate is spring-loaded and pulls the shield back onto the helmet, sealing it tightly against wind and rain. The addition of a five-stage rotating dial allows for fine tuning of the base place for easy shield adjustments. Ventilation A large lower three position vent, three upper air vent intakes and four uniquely positioned upper exhaust outlet vents combine with the Dual Density EPS liner to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS liner. Features: Four shell sizes Dual density EPS liner Superior ventilation 3D Max-Dry System II Liner E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) CWR-1 Shield System Neatly secure chin strap Includes Pinlock pins and lens insert Includes breath guard and chin curtain Snell M2010 and DOT Certified

    Touratech USA Aventuro Carbon Helmet

    0 reviews

    Touratech has set a new standard for adventure touring comfort with the Aventuro Carbon helmet. This Lightweight, carbon fiber construction helmet is comfortable, features a no-drag visor, and easily transforms between street, dual-sport and dirt configurations. While there is no shortage of helmet options on the market, there are surprisingly few good choices for the ADV touring crowd. Some of the most popular adventure riding helmets are heavy, have excessive wind noise and are limited to just one configuration. Because of these limitations, Touratech has set out to make the ultimate helmet for adventure touring. Lightweight We started with weight. Let's face it, ADV riding and distance touring means hours in the saddle and riding with a heavy helmet takes its toll on your neck and shoulders contributing to fatigue. Touratech has used strong, but lightweight carbon fiber to weigh-in significantly less than most of the popular dual-sport helmets. No-Drag Visor The Aventuro Carbon helmet was designed by motorcycle travelers and its features reflect this. The visors on most helmets tend to grab passing air, which limits your range of motion and puts strain on your neck. The helmet's No-Drag Visor is designed with massive ports that allow air flow through the base of the visor. Like a pressure release valve, it dumps air to reduce pull on the head reducing strain and maximizing rider comfort. In sunny situations, the tip of the visor can be extended with a quick pull on its adjustable end. The Aventuro Carbon has been sculpted to cut through the wind with less turbulence and noise for the rider. 3 Modes - No Tools Like a Transformer, the Aventuro Carbon helmet can be converted between street, dual-sport, and off-road modes on the fly with no tools. The visor can be removed for a long ride on the tarmac and installed quickly for a few days of riding adventurous roads in the mountains. The shield can also be removed completely to accommodate goggles for dusty riding or full-blown, off-road riding. Whether it's a street bike day, adventure ride or single-track weekend in the woods, the Aventuro Carbon can do it all in light-weight comfort while providing the highest levels of protection. Key features: > Crafted from lightweight, carbon fiber for increased rider comfort > No-drag airflow visor reduces wind grab and strain on neck & body > Transforms between Street, Dual-sport to Dirt configurations with no tools > Easy open, easy close vents designed to keep rain out > Pin-Lock ready shield (Pin-Lock insert sold separately) > Intercom system ready, with speaker cavities > Ergo padding system >Washable, Antiperspirant, hypo-allergenic, Coolmax lining > Emergency cheek pad removal system > Liner cut away to accommodate glasses >Designed for goggles with quick-strap ready embossments and strap-lock shape > Set up for action camera mount > Extra long chin strap allows removal of helmet without completely unfastening 2DD buckle > Exceeds all DOT and ECE 2205 standards for helmet safety

    Shoei Hornet X2

    3 reviews

    The Shoei Hornet X2 is available in two versions - The standard Shoei Hornet X2 and the X2 Seeker. The Seeker version is exactly the same construction as the standard version, but adds graphics and color as well as cost. The following description is directly from Shoei's Website. DESIGN CONCEPT From the very beginning phases of conceptualization, the sole purpose of creating the all-new Hornet X2 was to offer serious dual-sport enthusiasts the perfect helmet for all corners of their journey. Striking the optimal balance between on-and-off-road form and function is no easy task, but in the end, the Hornet X2 defines what we all love most about dual-sport, adventure riding; it knows no bounds. Designed to maintain peak performance in every condition thrown its way without compromising the core values of a long distance touring helmet, the all-new Hornet X2 is a true all-road, all-element helmet. At first glance, you'll quickly admire the design characteristics that make the Hornet X2 a true hybrid between a premium road and off-road helmet. The mouthpiece and chin bar area incorporate the best features from both worlds; its shape was designed to improve air intake and ventilation performance, all the while giving the rider the additional air space needed to accommodate heavy breathing during demanding off-road riding. Abandoning the traditional mouthpiece of an off-road helmet, the Hornet X2 provides the additional protection needed when weather conditions become adverse, and the multi-stage lower vent shutter allows the rider to fine-tune airflow for every riding conditions. Performance, aerodynamics, ventilation, functionality, and long-distance comfort... The helmet for every road, Hornet X2. V-460 VISOR The Hornet X2's all-new V-460 visor spent countless development hours in SHOEI's wind tunnel and on the road to perfect the proper balance between aerodynamics and traditional visor functionality. The innovative "wedge" shape along with strategically placed vent louvers allow wind to pass through unobstructed during high-speed riding, ultimately reducing lift and drag. Along with superior aerodynamic qualities, the V-460's shape was strategically designed to push air into the Hornet X2's upper air intake for optimal cooling, all the while maintaining its fundamental purpose of providing sunshade and roost protection during off-road riding.Rounding out the V-460's innovative features, easy-to-operate quarter-turn screws allow for quick removal and installation of the visor without the need for special tools. CNS-2 SHIELD/QR-N BASE PLATE Along with the Hornet X2's large eye port, SHOEI's all-new CNS-2 shield offers unparalleled vision across the entire optical range. In addition to protecting against 99% of the sun's damaging UV rays, the CNS-2 shield offers a distortion-free view thanks to SHOEI's 3D injection-molding process. Additionally, an innovative rib on the top edge of the shield improves rigidity and eliminates bending that may occur during opening and closing. Coupled with the all-new CNS-2 shield, the Hornet X2's QR-N base plate system facilitates quick and efficient shield changes for easy adaptation during your journey. The strengthened spring-loaded base plates pull the shield back against the improved window beading to ensure a dust, wind and waterproof seal with each and every closure. A new shield locking mechanism rounds out the Hornet X2's advanced shield system. VENTILATION A well-ventilated helmet is essential to dual-sport riding and the many challenges it can present thanks to varying speeds, weather conditions, and levels of physical exertion. During the design process of the Hornet X2, SHOEI utilized its state-of-the-art wind tunnel facility to help develop the optimal balance between airflow, silence, and functionality. Equipped with a large, multi-position lower air intake/defroster optimized for fresh air inhalation and clear vision, two shutter-controlled upper air vents for optimal air intake and head cooling, four uniquely-positioned rear exhaust outlets to take better advantage of negative pressure suction, and three neck outlet vents work together to yield unrivaled cool-air intake and hot-air expulsion. 3D MAX-DRY INTERIOR SYSTEM II The Hornet X2 is equipped with a fully removable, washable, and replaceable 3D Max-Dry Interior System II. SHOEI's exclusive Max-Dry System II liner material absorbs and dissipates sweat and moisture twice as fast as traditional Nylon interiors, making it ideal for those long days on the road or trail. The 3D center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider's head, allowing for an extremely comfortable fit while maintaining the firm hold necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding. Additionally, the Hornet X2's 3D-shaped cheek pads are available in multiple thicknesses for a fully customizable fit.The Hornet X2 also includes a removable breath guard, chin curtain, and removable ear pads to complete the comfort package.

  15. Press Release Redefining the definition of value and versatility. SANTA FE SPRINGS – June 1, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The new EXO-AT950 is a modular helmet with a removable external face shield, an internal drop-down tinted sun visor, and costs under $300. “After three years of development, we are delighted to bring this new product to market.” says Frank Esposito. “We’ve known there has been a demand for a modular ADV style helmet for years, but we wanted to make sure the helmet met all the needs of the Touring and Adventure Touring community. We have been asking people what they wanted in a helmet and why, and we feel we have done a great job of meeting their needs.” The first thing you will notice is the huge eye-port, allowing you to see more of the world around you. The peripheral field of vision is exceptional making it easier to look over your shoulder when doing lane changes. If it’s really bright outside, the internal drop-down Speedview® SunVisor can be lowered easily with gloves on while riding. The external peak visor is designed to have very little lift and be quiet at highway speeds, but can easily be removed without tools. “Then you add the fact that it’s a flip-up modular helmet for under $300 and people can’t believe it.” says Esposito. Editors and product testers have been very helpful by providing feedback during the design process. “The visor detentes, drop down sunshade and vents all operate very smoothly. The liner is comfortable as well.” says Carl Parker publisher and editor of ADVMoto Magazine. “The AT950 actually meets the needs of a lot of different types of riders and that’s what’s going to make this helmet so popular.” says’ Mr. Esposito. “It will obviously appeal to the Adventure Touring crowd, but with the peak visor removed, it’s also a great touring helmet. Additionally you can remove the face shield and use goggles for when it’s dusty. The aggressive styling will also make it popular with the Urban riders and the UTV crowd.” The Scorpion AT950 is available in three solid colors: Matte Black, Matte Anthracite, and Hyper Silver and retails for $269.95. The Neocon graphic is available in Hi-Vis Neon, Bright Orange, and Phantom silver and retails for $289.95. About Scorpion Scorpion Sports, Inc.

HJC’s 3D CAD sculpted Advanced Polycarbonate composite shell results in superior fit and comfort, designed for the maximum range of motion needed for the bold and rugged ride ahead. The extensive eye-port allows for maximum visibility and superior goggle fit. A secure seal is ensured with integrated lock tabs, a beveled bottom edge and optically correct, 3D-sculpted shape.

  18. Not sure about you, but I live in a bright, sunny climate, so I prefer to sport a dark helmet face shield for daytime riding. However, in the summer, it's not all to common for me to start riding before sun up or just before dusk. The problem then becomes, which face shield should I install for the changing lighting conditions? I NEED both a clear and dark shield, but I typically pick the one that works for the majority of the lighting conditions that I'll be riding. Hardly ideal. It appears that the folks at AGV are testing the use of a visor that utilizes an ultra thin LCD screen that can change from clear to tinted instantly with the push of a button. Here's a video of the unit in action. Skip to 1:20 if you just want to see the demo. The visor can stay in the tint mode for up to 12 hours, run in stand-by mode for hundreds of hours, and is rechargeable. The release of this product should be next month and pricing should be around $225.00 US. But, it's only going to be compatible for AGV Pista GP, Corsa and GT Veloce helmets. Hopefully we'll see this tech become more widely available. I know that it would benefit me personally a lot. What do you think about this product? Photo By motorcyclenews.com

  21. SCHUBERTH designs and manufacturers every helmet with attention to detail. This is reflected in each and every helmet that comes out of the German factory, including the latest product innovation the SCHUBERTH E1. Whether on the freeway, a country or dirt road; this innovative adventure helmet allows the rider to enjoy the highest level of comfort, maximum safety and astonishing aeroacoustics. ALISO VIEJO, CA – May 10, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Riders have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the SCHUBERTH E1 since its unveiling at the 2015 EICMA show in Milan. The wait is over and it is now on sale at local SCHUBERTH dealers just in time for the start of the season. The E1 unites the functionality and safety of a modern flip-up design with the look, feel and off-road capability of an adventure helmet. The new E1 not only looks like it was built for adventure, it has everything a helmet needs for use off the beaten track too – from the large, multi-position peak to optimal air flow for arduous off-road use. Even though it may not look like it, when the helmet is closed, the chin piece of the E1 can be swivelled up complete with peak and shield. The E1 was developed in SCHUBERTH’s in-house wind tunnel to ensure it features low wind resistance, thus allowing for high speeds on the motorway; and an aerodynamic shape making it very quiet. SCHUBERTH has succeeded in making the modern flip-up helmet fit for adventure. The E1 comes in seven sizes, from XS to XXXL. It is available in five solid colors (matt black, matt anthracite, glossy black, glossy white and glossy silver) for $829, and in Hunter graphics (yellow, blue and red) and Guardian graphics (yellow and red) for $889.
