Hey Man,

The G4 may work behind the slider (it will be very close, depending on how you align it) but it will absolutely work with the sticky mount.

Since the sun visor slider is near the location of where the Cardo mounts, is the Cardo G4's mic boom long enough to mount it further back?

Hey Craig,

To be honest you fall just under the top end of the MD size range. If you have a intermediate oval shaped head after break in you should be in a MD although it will feel very tight when you first buy it.

If you had a pronounced oval (think Arai Profile) or a very round head (HJC fit) you would probably be a LG only because the C3 would not be the optimal fit.

I hope this helps - something tells me the Shoei RF-1100 could be a hair big for your actual head measurement.

Here is a chart for comparison.



Let me know what else I could offer. Also it could make sense to be sure you are measuring exactly. Have you seen our video?

That is what I did with the Shoei RF 1100 helmet.

Thanks, Craig

the revzilla website is showing lots of sizes (LRG) available now for the Hi-Viz yellow. I guess that guy that I talked to at Revzilla was full of it.
Order is in.....

I've had my Hi-Vis a coupla months and I just got the chance to ride it during a rain-event...NOT happy!!!!!! A seven hundred dollar helmet should NOT get wet on the inside of the faceshield...This is NOT safe! I'm wondering what is making this happen(don't say rain) where it leaks is NOT known,I'm leaving this to the experts.I see i'm NOT the only one experiencing this problem on this thread alone.I want some answers!!!!


Geeberz! Five NOT words=NOT HAPPY BOOCH!!!

You inspired me to experiment a little, since I haven't ridden in rain since getting the C3.

Since my wife was out of the house I snapped the visor closed and soaked the helmet (and a good bit of the counters) down with the kitchen sink sprayer and then checked the visor.

Not a drop inside the visor.

Either my helmet was built on a Wednesday or something else is going on.

Are you snapping the visor fully closed, or could it have been left in the City position? When I sprayed with the visor in City, lots of leakage, as you'd expect with the visor not sealed. It has to be snapped closed for the seals to work.

I also put a very little Shin-Etsu grease on the seals when I first got it because the seals looked dry to me. Don't know if it makes the seals more watertight, but they're sure prettier.

Did you pull the shield down hard until the lock engaged? It will engage with an audible "snap". Mine will leak if I don't do this.

In rain you may have to close the chin vent depending on windshield position or no wind shield. Quite a lot of air though vent including broken up rain drops all led up behind face shield.

I wonder if your visor is warped/ Preventing a good seal around the gasket.

That was my gut when I read this this morning, either the "city" position of the visor or the outlier case of a warped visor, which would be the first from the C3 line I have seen.

I have a ton of rain miles in mine and have had no issues - and I agree, if you are getting a ton of water in through and around the shield - you should be concerned. Glad you spoke up.

Can you give it one more bout in the rain with a double check on the face shield "snapped" down tight?

Let me know what you come up with and we will go from there.

Thanks,

Anthony

Hey Booch! I've been seeing that Pinlock is coming out with a photochromic insert that self darkens in sunlight. Any idea of when it'll be available for C3?

I have no word just yet. Things are slow going with product availability hinging on shipments from the EU.

Stay tuned.

Best,

Anthony
