Hi 94c4,
Just wonderin' if you purchased one of those ROOF Boxer RO5 helmets, and if so how do you like it? Looks like a real nice helmet to me.....

Thanks:D

OldBoy99,

I have not bought it yet.
I am actually trying one now.
A friend lent it to me.
First impression is: Very light and comfy, the visor protects well when the chin-piece is up, holds air pretty well when closed.
Defect: the chin-piece feels very light and I'm not sure if it would hold even in minor impacts (possible cause of injury?). The chin-piece is closed and locked by means of two automatic buttons so structurally is not very solid when closed.
In essence it turns out that the main reason reason why I like this helmet (the "rotating" chin-piece) is also the reason why I'm not so sure about it.

Hope the above helps.
Ciao

Thanks, that's some great information. This helmet is supposed to be certified to the ECE 22-05 standard. Do you know if this is the latest and most stringent European helmet safety standard?

What do these helmets sell for over there, in UK Pounds? I've found it on-line for about 250 UK Pounds (for the Star model, my favorite) plus 25 to shipping to US.

Thanks:D
