Wow. Have worn other HJCs over the years but this one is TOPS. This helmet comes as close to an Aviator's style helmet as any helmet I've seen with its capability to provide the rider with a panoramic drop-down shade (a 2 setting feature so that one is low and the 2nd is even lower for your eyes) which has a one button release a spring loaded return to its storage position. HJC has mastered the flip-up on this helmet. The helmet has some BMW type styling to its lines which makes it look a bit more angular and stylish as opposed to earlier versions. Real story: Purchased this at the local Honda Dealer before heading across country. Photos on the site show this helmet on as I prepare to ride. And, I encouraged my road-mate to purchase one as well. He said, nope, not gonna, it's too gadegty and I will do fine with my half-shell. Then the day came in Northern New Mexico at 7800 feet, a blizzard, with snow sticking to the windshield and winds hitting us at 25 knots. As soon as we descended into Farmington (near the 4 corners) he ran to the dealership and purchased one like this that I had. He praises it now and wished he had purchased before the trip. Price on this site is very competitive! Get it.
