Scorpion EXO-R710 Review: a True Value Superstar

Quick Specs Under $200 / Intermediate Oval / 3.55lbs / 1,610g A $200 SNELL/DOT-Certified Bargain, & My New Full Face Value Pick The Scorpion website proclaims the EXO-R710 to be the best fiberglass helmet you can buy for its $200 price point, and I have to say that I can get on board with that claim. The fact is that I haven’t worn, tested, or ridden in every $200 fiberglass helmet out there (though I’ve got a couple other affordable ones in my garage), but for one to be better than this one, ...

Shuberth R2 Enforcer Helmet Hands-On Review

Some First Impressions I always wear a full face helmet just because I ride in an environment that has a lot of sand and rock and the full face protection is appreciated. Putting this helmet on for the first time, it was snug but still very comfortable. The fit is secure but not so tight that you dread the first few rides to break it in. I read a few negative comments regarding the chinstrap and the double D-ring closure but found the strap to be perfect in length and easy to secure with the d ...

AGV K5 S Helmet Hands-On Review

Introduction I have handled a good variety of motorcycle helmets since I started riding in the early ’90s. I’m therefore a bit surprised to realize I’d never owned or tested a helmet from AGV. As part of my review process, I always read up on the manufacturer, even if I’m pretty familiar with them, in case there is some interesting fact I can bring to light. Checking out the story behind AGV had me realizing how little I actually knew about this company. For instance, AGV founded in 1947 and th...

The Shark Spartan Helmet Review

Introduction It’s been a while since webBikeWorld reviewed a helmet from Shark. In fact, it looks like it has been nearly five years since we reviewed the “Raw” helmet. Maybe part of the reason was that Shark went through some changes in USA distribution? Maybe it was just simply that Shark was never quite the “household” name in helmets here in the USA like other brands such as Shoei, HJC, and Arai. Whatever the case, I feel like the riders in the United States have largely missed out on one o...

Simpson Mod Bandit Helmet Review

The Mod Bandit Stole and Broke My Heart I stopped by the Simpson booth at AimExpo last week to see what they had in store with their unmistakably stylish line of helmets. I was surprised to be presented with the announcement of their first modular helmet design called the Mod Bandit. I knew right away this posse of Simpson representatives visiting from New Braunfels, Texas needed to let me be the first to review this beauty of a helmet. I want to thank them for obliging me in that request. ...

NENKI NK856 Helmet Hands-On Review

The NK-856 is a full-face helmet, manufactured by Chinese Manufacturer NENKI Helmets. It has a safety designation that meets or exceeds DOT FMVSS-218. Full-face helmets offer added security to the head, namely in the face area while riding. They also help keep road noise down, and protect you from the wind, debris, and bugs if your motorcycle does not have a windshield or fairing. This article takes into account several factors used to evaluate this helmet in real application. I evaluate the w...

Bell RS-2 Helmet Hands-On Review

Background I have been riding for the last few years with an RPHA 10 helmet, but I’d noticed lately that with time the EPS had begun to compress and it was getting loose. With the looser fit, it had become quite noisy and probably wasn’t as safe. It was time for a new helmet. I was trying to figure out how to approach my husband with this latest motorcycle need when I opened my front door, on my birthday no less, and lo and behold there sat a box from Bell helmets containing the new for 2018 RS...

Vemar Ghibli Hands-On Review

The Ghibli is the second Vemar helmet I’ve reviewed. The first, the Sharki modular, is a pretty good value modular for the money. The Ghibli is an inexpensive full-face helmet, with an MSRP of $139. That is a very appealing price, especially for new riders that are still getting their bearings. Upon arrival, the first question I asked was “is it as good of a value helmet as the Sharki? ” To test the Ghibli, my wife Melissa wore it throughout the Summer, giving us a pretty good perspective on wha...

ZOX Primo C Track Helmet Hands-On Review

In this article, I will be reviewing the third of three ZOX helmets, the Primo C Track. This is a full face helmet. A full face helmet covers the entire head, with a rear that covers the base of the skull, and a protective section over the front of the chin. This type of helmet offers the maximum protection to the rider’s head in the event of a crash. I tested this helmet using a Ducati Monster 821 provided by Bow Cycles in Calgary. Check out their website here. Please keep a lookout for my ar...

ZOX Brigade SVS Solid Hands-On Review

The Brigade SVS Solid is a modular helmet. A modular helmet is defined as being a hybrid between an open face helmet and a full face helmet. They are sometimes referred to as convertible or flip face helmets. I tested this helmet using my 2007 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic. Please keep an eye out for an article on this wonderful touring bike in the near future. I enjoy wearing a modular helmet when I am riding my touring bike. I go between a ¾ helmet and a modular depending on where I am going...

Scorpion EXO R420 Helmet Hands-On Review

Introduction I have to admit that Scorpion helmets and the 400 series, in particular, are a bit special to me. Around ten years ago I was returning to motorcycling riding after a few years away from riding. When I purchased my new-to-me bike (a 2001 Kawasaki ZR-7s) I, of course, needed a new helmet. Around that time there was a new player in the helmet market and that was Scorpion. I purchased a black EXO-400 helmet back then based on the price and the fact it was available right there at the ...

SCHUBERTH C4 Hands-On Review

A couple of months ago I tested the new Shoei Neotec II, and hot on the heels of that review is the latest modular from SCHUBERTH, the C4. Camparison article coming soon. SCHUBERTH is a household name for most motorcycle enthusiasts. The C4 is the next evolution of SCHUBERTH’s top of the line modular series (you can read what we thought of the last-generation C3 Pro here). On the whole, the C4 is an excellent helmet and is certainly in-keeping with SCHUBERTH’s motif of building high-quality, hig...

Shoei Neotec II w/ SENA SRL Hands-On Review

wBW readers and fans of modular helmets everywhere will note that the original Shoei Neotec was introduced in 2012, and since its introduction it has rightfully earned and maintained its reputation as one of the best modular helmets around. In fact, earlier this year we selected it for our recommended modular helmets guide . The Neotec gave riders exactly what they would have expected from a premium modular produced by a top-class brand like Shoei: exceptional build, great ventilation, an ...

Sena Momentum Helmet Review

Sena, well known for their world-class motorcycle communication technology, is now moving into what many might say is the next logical extension for their brand – incorporating that technology into their own, bespoke line of full-face helmets, the Momentum series. The Momentum is available in three different sub-models, Momentum Lite, Momentum, and Momentum Pro, the difference between them being the electronics package they contain. The unit reviewed here is the middle model, the Momentum. In th...

Vemar Sharki Hands-On Review

Someone looking for a modular helmet in the $200 range has several options. Notable price comparable helmets in the space include the Scorpion GT920, HJC IS-Max 2, and Bell Revolver EVO. Among them is the Vemar Sharki, a feature-rich modular with solid fundamentals and strong value. Over the years, Rick, Bruce, and others have covered Vemar helmets pretty well. See more Vemar helmet reviews here. As with prior Vemar helmets WBW has reviewed, the Sharki gives a lot for not a lot. $200 is a great ...

Husqvarna Pilen Helmet Hands On Review

The Shark In Swedish Clothing The Black and White Arrow Bikes The Husqvarna Pilen Helmet isn’t available in North America yet, but it’s coming soon. I figured I should let the cat out of the bag right away before you rush off looking to buy it straight away. I first learned of it about a month ago while drooling over news of the two, very sexy, naked street bikes Husqvarna is releasing this year in the 701 and 401 Svartpilen and Vitpilen. The bikes were featured on Jay Leno’s Garage TV show in...

HJC RPHA70 ST Hands-On Review

T he RPHA 70 ST represents HJC’s top shelf sport-touring helmet and is an evolution of the original RPHA ST. Features such as a lightweight and rigid shell, an internal sun visor, and included pinlock ready visor and insert are just the beginning of the features packed into the RPHA 70 ST. Introduction If there were an official “household” name in motorcycle helmets, HJC could likely be that name, especially here in the in the United States. HJC has been the number one selling motorcycle helm...
