I too am looking for a new dual sport helmet. Been looking and looking for the last week or two. Can't pull the trigger.... they are ether right price and not enough stuff or wrong price and all the right stuff.Wich helmet are you guys running? I like the arai xd4 but it is a bit costly.....the bell mx-9 is looking like a decent helmet for the price. Any thoughts or feedback?
I am on my second XD-4. While I love the fit and light weight, there are a few things about it I do not like.XD4. Worth every penny.
No surprise there given that the SENA 20S communicators run about $250 just for one. So whatever is in that helmet must be a cheap version to keep the price of that helmet so low.The guy at cycle gear in SA did not recommend it. He said the pairing isn’t that great and the speakers are low quality
+1 for the XD-4. Cool in summer, warm in winter.
After some of the crashes I've had, I would never trust a modular helmet. Screw the people in the gas station, They will get over you wearing a helmet much faster than you getting over a missing jawbone.
Have said this will be my next one. Seems to check all the boxes. Would definitely have to be at a brick and mortar store to find the right fit. Have a scorpion summer jacket. I think they make quality stuff.Well got the helmet in .... Way too tight! Got it as per the size chart, Med... I need one size bigger.

Gotta agree with this. The 5% more you are going to pay is probably well worth the peace of mind. Fortunately I live within 10 miles of about 6000 new helmets (35 @ 635) and had the fine folks at Moto Liberty fix me right up.Would definitely have to be at a brick and mortar store to find the right fit. .
I wore my Scorpion AT-950 for the first time today. I agree that the visor causes much vibration and 'jerks' the head around. I will be taking mine off as well.Cons...... 1. The visor! It's thin and starts a bad wind vibration at about 40mph, and I do mean bad. I will be taking mine off.
2. As said above the fit. I used the size chart , 7 1/4 should be a M. It fit like a small, so I sent it back and got a Large. The top of my head fits nice, nice and snug. My jaws are a bit to tight, so I'll be ordering the small cheek pads.
I love mine also. I took visor off, much better. Replaced shield with tinted version. You can get it on amazon.I wore my Scorpion AT-950 for the first time today. I agree that the visor causes much vibration and 'jerks' the head around. I will be taking mine off as well.
I usually wear size large in helmets but purchased the extra large after trying it on at the store. I agree that the cheek pads were little tight and became uncomfortable with the visor vibration. I was unaware you could order smaller cheek pads but will look into it. I guess my wife was right when she said I had a 'big mouth'!
This is my first modular helmet so I am not too sure what to expect, but I think the price is right for trying one out.
Hmmm...will have to keep this in mind. If its shipped and sold by Amazon that means free returns.I love mine also. I took visor off, much better. Replaced shield with tinted version. You can get it on amazon.
I think you can buy replacement pads to go from large to medium or medium to small. I don’t think you can go x large to large.
