Dual Sport Helmets
I have to say that I love the DS style of helmets. They provide great visibility, and vent extremely well. Also fogging is something that never happens for me because of the airflow, and the face shield being farther from the face.
Now here is my problem with them. I like to change my face shields depending on the time of day. I wear a dark smoke by day and a clear at night. Very easy to swap out on my Scorpion 700. On my Icon Varient, it requires o screw driver, and being very careful to not strip out the aluminum screw/mounting system.
After a year of use I managed to strip the hole that the screw for one side of the shield. Was way to easy for a helmet that cost as much as it was.
Are there any DS helmets out there with tool free shield changes? Something that I can easily carry a extra shield in my Givi case and swap out quick?
My dream helmet would be the New Scorpion VX-34(dirtbike helmet) with a face shield and the circle shield release like on my Scorpion exo700.
