My helmet sucks.
I mean, it WAS a good helmet... 8 years ago. It WAS an excellent helmet for the money... 11 years ago.
But, since KBC left the US market, I can't find things like replacement visors and ratchets. Kind of a bummer, I really liked the paint job on my Force RR.
Since the visor won't stay in place on one side, and I live in an agricultural area, it was time for a new lid. Well... It was time in more the emergency sense. The visor would pop off on the right during freeway head checks and send blinding air and debris into my face.
Did I mention that it's 11 years old? DOT and Snell, though.
So I went to the local CG, looking for an HJC. Walked out with a Sedici Avventura. Fits perfectly so far, DOT/ECE rated, kevlar reinforced fiberglass shell, nice peak to make sure I get full rotation on my head checks
and the best part... Clearanced out at $99.97.
But with any good comes the bad.
This helmet is absurdly loud. Like, drowns out Tool pumped all the way up through my earbuds, loud.
What's that? You say something? I couldn't hear you OVER THE WIND RUSHING THROUGH MY HELMET!
I gotta save up for something a little better. Maybe I can afford a Shoei in 8 or 9 years if I start now.
