I haven't seen a thread on this, this looks much nicer than the Gringo to me. It'd be nice to be able to flip the lid up, and $399 doesn't seem too bad either for what you get. I've seen pics of it with a flat face shield that looks much better IMO



Compared to the original Bullitt concept

Thats pretty sweet actually.
I wish the shield wasn't "bubble" shaped though.

Just making sure everyone saw this....

I do like the concept model, but FUCK. Most guys on this forum wouldn't even pay that much for a bike!

Instead of using up the mortgage to buy one measly helmet why not buy a truck load of them for the same price

With the flat shield
I couldn't decide if this was an option or if that was a vintage helmet based on the shit ass product photo.

It's hard to tell with that particular shot, but I know for a fact that one with a flat shield is around. I'll see if I can pull the pic off instagram

I may be interested when the come out... Depends on how it fits the head. I only have one helmet and would like a second.

It sure better be REALLY well made for $400. That's Shoei RF1100 territory (I paid less for my RF1100).

Well its clear they're targeting a higher end market than the Gringo, that's for sure. Just took note of the specs.

It sounds good on paper - still 2x what it would cost if it was HJC or something, but at least they're proud of the technology in the lid. The Gringo isn't nearly as detailed in the spec description

Oh i agree there, it better fit and feel great. You can get a arai for a little bit more and they have different shape shells.
