Don't like the idea of the muzzle not being able to withstand impact. A little road rash on the face might improve some of you guys looks

- BUT I am cute and like to keep my face in one piece.

$250?!? Thanks, but...no.
I'm pretty satisfied with my 3/4 Shoei, and pocketing the other 80 bucks...
And, I can't fit my punkin' sized head in any Bell helmet...bummer.

Why do some people expect an answer to a rhetorical question?

I like the look, but my problem is with how easy the face mask pulls off. Go to scratch your nose and away it goes.

After getting knocked off my bike on the freeway and my chinbar taking a hit made me a believer in full face helmets, I also own a 3/4 that is still a good helmet compared to those skull caps.

Pretty sweet. Kind of post-apocalyptic, Road Warrior-ish. But $250 is pretty steep for a half-helmet with muzzle. Maybe a buck fifty tops.

Ugly. And hella expensive. I'll stick with my outlaw ultra slim.

Looks like something from a video game. I'll stick with the half helmet when required and no helmet when I can.
