  1. Saw the advert in the latest AMCN magazine

    I'd never heard of them before BUT They do look interesting so will have to wait and see when they're available here.

    I'm in. The styling is a bit out there but hopefully there's some good reviews.

  7. You could order from Europe...

    EU helmets are legal now. Might be a gamble with the fit though...

  10. did you see the bamboo helmet? wow!
    BAMBOO | Roof-EN

    Bamboo is an inexhaustible resource with exceptional mechanical properties. Used in ancestral time in Asia for its many qualities, ROOF performed the molding of helmet shell out of this material of the future. Highly performing, the Bamboo helmet is certified E22-05 (European standard) and opens the door to designing with controlled environmental impact. Exclusive ROOF!

    "controlled environmental impact" lol

  11. The speil is just so contradictory, though. The chinpiece is further away from your chin, ostensibly to make it more comfortable, but, of course, to enable it to flip over, but this would make it NOISIER, not quieter, as they claim...

  14. Are they DOT and SNELL approved? Or is this an equivalent E22-05? Been out of looking for helmets for a couple years so unsure on what current acceditation is

  15. Yeah not my taste, just found they have some black as well. Could at least try the sizes. Very tempted if I can find the mat black and orange.

  16. I have a Roof Boxer style helmet, is a bit noisy, but the fit is excellent and the chin piece is actually closer than my old shoei or HJC...
    Very light weight and I like the look of it...

    Yeah, would be interesting to see whether it works or not.

    Schuberth does take advantage of the hinge mechanism of their C3 and C3 Pro (or BMW System 6 Evo) helmets, using the hinge to bring the underside of the chinbar extra extra close around the chin/neck, too close to take the helmet off with the chinbar shut. As a consequence of being so close-fitting when closed, their flip-face helmets have been tested to be few decibels quieter than their full-face helmets.
