Yesterday I picked up my latest helmet: the RJays Striker. My other helmets: KBC Open face (comfy, was to be used in the car when I went to the drags) Shoei TZR (fantastic helmet, well worth the money) I went into a shop a couple weeks ago and sized on up, tried it on, and it seemed ok for the 5 or so mins I wore it in the shop. The next week a local bike shop had a sale, and I managed to negotiate a decent price for 2 of them, one for me and one for my partner. Today I took the Striker for its first ride. It would be interesting for me to compare my more expensive Shoei to the RJays. First impression about the build quality: -The foam inside had plenty of vent areas in the right spots, I did not get hot and sweaty in it at all. -Vents on the exterior are very easy to open/close while wearing gloves, but they do seem a little cheap in construction (the release on forehead looks like it might come off after some use). -The chin strap is nice and secure, quite happy with it actually -Visor changing is easy enough, and the visor mechanism is fine. -Fully removable lining comes out and goes back in nice and easy. On the road: After about 15 mins on the road somethings became apparent: -Wind noise, MUCH worse than my Shoei, higher pitched howling, regardless of what I did with the vents/visor/head angle. It seemed to come from the fin at the rear. -pressure spots, about this far into the ride the slightly too hard foam is really pressing onto a few points around my skull. I found myself having to stop every 20mins and have a break when my concentration was more on the pain than the road. Basically, this helmet does not suit my head. That is not the manufacturers fault, so it is not a problem of the product. I will have another opinion of the helmet soon when my partner tries her's out properly. Summary: If it fits you and is comfy, then great. Wind noise is higher than other helmets. Great value for money, and visors are cheap (only $29 for a tinted) good ventilation, but be careful not to be to rough with the releases. Cheers, Chris.
