Positives

  • When I first started riding 30 years ago a cheap helmet was all that was available but when a friend let me use their Shoei one time and I was hooked at the level of comfort and have never looked back.
  • Syncrotec is a breakthrough as it allows you to wear the helmet and go about your business, eg, go in a store without removing your helmet.Very convenient
  • Last along time if cared for well

Negatives


  • Price seems expensive but comfort and quality will win you over
