Awh...read the article and near the end it sez the helmet has a sun shield buit in that you can pull down, like a fighter pilot's helmet. That would give you the stealth that you need and disappear at night when ya don't need it.On 2006-12-13 12:21, DragonDan wrote:
It would not suit me, I dig my Scorpion helmet's dark visor - I like 'hiding' from my fellow commuters. Plus it scares the kids in the minivan......
James, I agree with you and DaveM re: the protection, I'm not sold on the chin bar. On the price Omaz has calculated, no wonder this is the jet pilot model - only a pilot could afford one!On 2006-12-14 03:57, jameskiwi wrote:
It's interesting how some like not to be seen. Are you guys shy, or afraid of being identified as (gasp) riding a cycle.
Maybe I'm missing something here.
Anyway, I've always preferred Schuberth lids for their comfort and quietness, and when a lid is on, I'm the sort that likes to feel protected. This one seems to be a good city helmet, but I'd have second thoughts about sports or touring. For a start, looks like that gap behind the chinbar would suck a heap of air up.
Good on em for pushing the envelope, but I think my next one will be an S1 or something similar.
Does the iridium visor on the Suomy come with the squashed flies designer pattern as standard or you have to pay extra for it?On 2006-12-14 05:43, DaveM wrote:
definitely not my cup of tea but each to their own.
I prefer a full chin bar of a regular full face lid with an Iridium visor.
From what I can see, they can be shipped in for around Euro 410, plus shipping. Amounts to around Â£300, which is pretty reasonable compared to retail over here.On 2006-12-14 06:13, ruscook wrote:
Given Omaz conversion to US $ do you know what the price of the Schuberth in the UK is as shipped not converted from Rand?
