So, I got a new Helmet on Friday! As it turns out, I'm the first customer to have this new design. I'm sure I won't be the last tho, as it's such a sweet helmet. Things I like: - It's so FREAKEN LIGHT. - I LOVE the design. I think this helmet looks amazing. Love the Carbon showing and the Southern Cross. - The shape seems to allow me to turn my head more. With the Shoei, I would hit my shoulder and couldn't turn any further. - There is plenty of room around the ears and temple area, so now my speakers from by Interphone system no longer push on my ears. This was giving me headaches. - Sound seems a bit cleaner. With the Shoei, when I put it on, most sound becomes muted/muffled. Makes it quiet, but does affect sound. With the RHOK, sounds seem to come to me unimpeded. - Did I mention how LIGHT it is? Things that aren't QUITE as good: - Sound comes in here too. It is a little noisier than the Shoei, but not by a lot. As said before, this has some benefits too. With the extra room around the ears, it allows for air to flow around there. Also, when I turn my head, the wind does create a louder sound (sounds a bit like listening to a sea shell). Having said that about the noise, it is a small thing compared to the benefits. I've had lots of people telling me lately that I should wear ear plugs when riding anyway. BitSar did mention to me the other day about some soft covers he got for his speakers which helped him a lot. I may look at getting these too. Might fill up some of the space and help with the noise issue (not that it's much of an issue as already stated). I'll write up a proper review once I get the chance to take it on a nice long ride. I'm having major issues with my right shoulder atm, so, I need to limit my long rides for the time being. I have a longer ride to Rawson coming up next weekend.
