I've been eyeing the KBC Airbourne #2 for awhile now and have read up on all the mix reviews, but still decided to buy it anyway due to the awsome graphic. On the net it was list as a KBC Force RR with the two massive air vent on the up. But my one is the VR-2 with the same nude chick, it also has the new padding and visor system. My other helmet is a Shark RSF2, first impression of the KBC is the nosie and the padding. The padding does not feel as good and hard as the shark and the Shark is alot more quieter at all speed. As I'm a sweaty person I find that the venting is alot better than the shark. I think I will wear the KBC while riding in the city/summer time and the shark for high speed ride/winter time.
