The evoline is a great helmet, however quiet it isn't
its let down by an atrocious seal between the visor and the shell.

because of the design of the visor there is no seal for about a centimetre ate the edges of the visor to the rotating visor support.. meaning you NEED ear plugs if you go above say 40..50MPH. I've tried to seal the gap myself with draft excluder but it doenst' work well enough (yet). I need to track down the plastic tape "V" style excluder rather then the foam or rubber I've tried to date


there is an additional problem (which may be because the shop had to replace the visor on mine) in as much as there is a heck of a gap on the visor meaning you get drops of water coming in and hitting you on the face. becuase of that it can get a bit steamy ion the visor

the view behind the visor is fantastic, feels goldfish bowl like

+1 for style, looks
-10 for design competence, functionality.
-1 visors are £45 odd to replace

it rates 4* on the sharp rating schema (which is a good rating), but it doesn't have a gold ACU rating. OK I appreciate these are UK centric ratings

it remains (as far as I'm aware the only helmet that can be used (legally) as either a full face or a an open face).
