Cool!!! Glad to see more companies coming out with dual sport helmets. Thanks for the pics. It will be interesting to see how they compare to the XD3 and the Hornet

I'm just curious if the visor retracts all the way up into the helmet.

I looked at another dual sport helmet in a bike shop recently, might have been the AFX, and hte visor only appears to go about half way. Is this common? For me, not having the ability to completely raise the visor makes it useless.

I really can't wait to see some reviews of this helmet. I really love the look of it with a tinted visor!

I have seen it in person a couple of weeks ago. Well, I know I won't be buying one. It's ugly, it's heavy and it's ICON.

I know people will probably love to hate this helmet when it becomes the #1 most popular helmet for squids on sportbikes. However I thought I would still post this.
