webBikeWorld Kabuto Ibuki Helmet Review

Discussion in 'Motorcycling News' started by NetriderBot, Aug 29, 2015.

  1. The Kabuto Ibuki is a new flip-up helmet recently added to the Japanese company's expanded lineup.

    The styling is "flip-up generic", designed for owners in this market segment, who tend to be more concerned about function over flash.

    The Ibuki's upper ventilation system is excellent and among the best of the flip-up helmets, which are usually not noted for good ventilation.

    Too bad the chin vent isn't as efficient, however.

    The build quality is very good and the interior is thickly padded and very comfortable.

    The Ibuki is also relatively quiet, despite the volumes of air flowing through the top with the vents open.

    It also comes with a Pinlock insert and a nice chin curtain.

    The price does seem a bit stiff though; we originally thought it was in the $250.00 range but it goes for a couple of hundred more than that.

    Overall, the Ibuki doesn't necessarily break any new ground but it does just about everything expected from a solid flip-up helmet.
