That is cool. I would get one. Although, I would feel the need to be riding an F-16 and not a motorcycle...

Looks cool but too gadgety... lots of things to break! If I were going to go to the trouble of getting a European helmet because it looks cool, it would be a Momo.

I'm calm like a bomb!

I like it. Looks like it would be a great helmet here in Tx. I thought it was pronounced "givey" (strong g as in "god"), in the video he says "jee-vee"...

Who knew...

It's a very cool helmet but I gotta stick with my Shoei. I've personally crash tested their products in the past and have grown quite fond of them.

Bear, I agree. This helmet would be awesome for Texas.

Gotta wonder about bugs tho. Might take a few dragonfly's through those vents in the front. That would suck.

Yep, that would suck! Lately though, its been the killer butterflies. You just can't keep the visor clean. I took one right between the eyes the other day, & I actually had to pull over & scrape guts so I could see again! We're getting a plague of biblical proportions!

Still, I'd get the black one...

Great looking helmet and I am a fan of the Euro design. Looks like the answer for a summer full face but I would stick with my Schuberth for the Spring/Fall/Winter rides.

Definetly a nice looking lid with cool features. Might be worth a shot if the Euro comes down a bit vs. the Dollar.
