A Simple Guide to Modular Helmets
We sell five modulars; good, better(two versions) and best (two versions). Top to bottom they are from Korea, Italy, Japan and Germany. You can’t go wrong with any of these. – Mr. Subjective.
Lightweight and very quiet. The cheek pads were very tight on my face, and (after a first day of uncomfortable wear) I had to jam a motel ice bucket tightly inside overnight, to compress and soften them up. Airflow vents extremely effective. Double D ring chin strap a pain after using the great Nolan chin strap latch, but you get used to them after a few days of regular use. This one is very lightweight, which is nice. Korea.
Kind of gimmick-y in styling and features, but very nice overall. From one of the world’s largest helmet companies. I wear an older, simpler version of this helmet one for 95% of my riding (X1002). By far the easiest to use chin strap latch system. Lots of other nice details and features. Durable. Fairly quiet. Integrated intercom or audio system available. The ultimate chin-bar opening latch and hinge system. Italy.
Best (Two Models)
What I'd probably buy today, and would immediately void the warranty by taking the wonderful chin strap buckle off my old Nolan and sew it onto the chinstrap of one of these, replacing the forever-proven safe-and-reliable-slow (ergonomic P.I.A. in short-distance daily riding) double-D ring system. Superb quality of construction and details, everywhere. Everything works perfectly. A second or third generation design from one of the worlds best helmet companies. Japan.
This company pioneered modular helmets more than twenty years ago. Since then they’ve continued to lead, and advance the state of the art. These are light, quiet, have an easy and fast chinstrap buckle, and like the Shoei, everything simply works perfectly. This maybe is their 5th or 6th generation design, and it shows in every picky detail. They also are the private-label helmet supplier for BMW, so if you have the bucks, these last for years and years, feel and work great, and you won’t be disappointed. Germany.
Modular helmets provide superior versatility. At highway speeds and on sport and unfaired bikes you’ll enjoy ‘full-face’ protection and comfort, yet during short stops, or when riding slow somewhere you can open up the chin bar. This can be specially nice in hot weather. If you want only one helmet to do both all-day longer-distance rides and also for frequent short-hop urban riding, we recommend them.
New helmets take a while to 'break in'. Especially 'full coverage' and modular types. They also take a while to learn the various tabs and slots that open the chin bar and visor and vents. For a while one fumbles around with a new helmet but eventually one learns to use the various bits and it all gets easier. On my old Nolan helmet everything is now second nature.
