Wanted the Givi one but it was not DOT approve but the Can-Am is made by Givi. It's been the most comfortable helmet I've had!

The full face helmets that have a " flip up " chin guard how good are they ? I like the concept of maybe flipping it up at a stop light or for whatever reason but concerned about it staying locked down in case of a crash. The ones I have looked all meet current safety regs but just wondering about real world feedback.

They do have data now on these flip-up helmets. Some show to never separate during a crash, others report an occasional separation but very rarely. All of them are far safer than an open face. None meet snell standards yet.
