I get the feeling this product has not really been thought out.

Wonder what this would do to the rider's neck and other parts of the body in an accident???

Whats with shorts and sneakers???

If not the first on the list, definitely in the top 5. Absolutely ridiculous. And what's with the demo rider's lack of proper gear?

Hahahaha!! "Better Acceleration"

Why not just use your left hand as a prop as I see so many "cool" riders do?

Thanks for the laughs!

Definitely in the top 10 most pathetic and retarded bike product for squids I've seen.

Hmmm... what about using a thermally conductive material like say metal, with no insulating properties, to make a cold weather motorcycle face mask. But wait we can give it sharp edges too so it can slice itself free in a crash.

Form should follow function, this is what happens when function follows form, at a very safe distance....

The only way that video could have been better is if the rider didn't see a road bump coming... I could ride like that for about 10 seconds around here before breaking my neck. Bad idea...

I never seen anything so stupid!
It transfer to your head all vibrations. Do you ride on a biliard table? Roads have always some holes and irregularities...
The worse thing is that some people will buy it!!

Nobody thinks that something is so easy like who is totally unable to do it.
