A very good helmet Review by Adam
I've owned a couple of other modular helmets and this one is better than those. The lock down is positive, the sunscreen is useful and the pinlock anti for works. The neck roll insert does make it quieter. My main helmets now are this and an x-12 but I do use this one mostly. Overall it has a quality feel, the ratchets are positive. The function simple and intuitive. It's not cheap, but it's comparable to other premium helmets out there. (Posted on 4/30/13)

A Simple Guide to Modular Helmets

We sell four modulars; good, better(two versions) and best.

Good — RPHA Max

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. After that, this helmet worked and wore great. 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.

Better — Nolan (Two Styles)

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 — Shoei Neotec

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.

Related notes:

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.
