    Haven't you used the man with two penis (Pini?) previously? Perhaps you should give him an extra, or take a couple away. Dang; now I need to buy an angle grinder and cut into my old helmets!

    Why would you want such a silent helmet? You think you'd want to hear what's going on around you.

    “Youth pastor” hahahaha :-) are ADV helmets silly & unnecessary? The visor & all that? I like the idea of having a lot more space around my mouth for drinking from my bladder hose & the larger wind screen, but does the sun shade really provide… shade?

    Never would have thought the Scorpion would reach that level of quality. I've always chosen Shoei and thought many of the off brands were knockoffs of the more reputable companies. Very impressive. Still think many, like HJC, Icon, Scorpion and a few others are like the Harbor Freight of helmets.

    Really impressive. I actually have several mc helmets. But my concern is elsewhere. I now ride a stand upright e-scooter. I cannot bring myself to ride it with a MC lid regardless of safe i would be, nor my armored jacket and pants. I am using bicycle helmets now, and there is my issue. Scooters (13-28mph) ride a notch above a bicycle (9-16mph) range, and within the 20’s dry eyes is a concern along with flying insects and rode debris. To date i have not found a proper helmet, one with robust bicycle level protection and a full or 3/4 facial protections from dry eyes/flying things due to upright standing at 22mph. I love the face shields on the watersport Garth RV helmet reasonably pricing at $200 but skull protection is minimal. It’s considered because I falsely believe I won’t take a full crash like I wouldn’t on a bicycle. Tthe helmet insulation of DSG Pace or Predator dh6-x which are used for downhill long skateboard racing are sufficient but these have real chinbars making me appear like i’m on a sportbike instead of a computer scooter and these two are expensive about $400. I’ve written to bell, specialized, including some scooter manufacturers to influence e-scooter helmet products. But in the meantime how does your physics acumen offer insight into possible helmet options?

  • RobotDCLXVI

    SO now I have to find a shop that stocks all of those since I wear glasses and usually helmets don't like me to see when I ride. Shoei would push the glasses off my nose and Arai let me focus on what was in front of me in the last generation.

    Have you assessed the UK Sharp Safety Test protocol yet? Like early Ncap it's interesting that few put their lids through the test as manufacturers in the main don't do well under this test regime. Very few achieve the converted 5 star rating. The Sharp colour coded impact grade for side, top and rear impact locations is easy to understand and I think a great help to purchasing. Interestingly when I speak to bike shop salesmen ( everyone is a qualified safety specialist no doubt) that they all say ignore it and use the word rubbish a lot. Why please? Plus any view on why safety has to be cost bounded and not inset in law. Years ago car safety was an optional extra, madness! Why should a youth of 16 and a 40 something's track race day helmet differ in safety, don't both brains deserve protecting? Shouldn't both expect, without the aide of specialist knowledge, to buy any new helmet with the confidence and recognition that it will do its job 🤔

    I have the Shoei RF-1400 because of this video and it is everything Ryan said. It is incredibly comfortable (once on) and very quiet but it destroys your ears taking it on and off. The trick is to tuck your ears in to the helmet before you pull it down over them. This reduces the discomfort by 50% but it still smarts a little. Other than that...darn near perfect helmet.
