Our Review

Originally reviewed in 2016, we found this helmet to be an excellent value. However, at 4 lbs on the nose, it’s not lightweight by any stretch – especially compared to other modular helmets listed here. Read our full review…

We haven’t reviewed this Sedici helmet, but boy would we like to. We HAVE seen it at industry events (like AIMExpo) and really think it’s a great unit.

Our Review

Cameron reviewed this lid and came away really impressed with it. The helmet features good venting, a wide viewport, a comfortable fit, and a stiff and strong shell. It is not without some issues, though. It’s a bit loud and doesn’t come with a Pinlock—a feature other helmets around the same price do have. The vent switches can also be a little tough to manipulate. Check out his review here.

Our big boss and head-honcho Cameron did a comprehensive review of this helmet, and due to the great experience he had with it the Neotec II actually became his main helmet option when going out for a ride. Read the complete Shoei Neotec II review.

AGV Helmets Sport Modular

Head shape: intermediate oval

Weight: 3.2 lbs

DOT/ECE? DOT & ECE certified

Our Review

Modular helmets are freaking heavy. There’s no way to get around that… Except of course if you buy an AGV Sportmodular Carbon. This helmet is lighter than most nonmodular helmets available today (believe it or not), but that’s not the only selling point. For a full rundown of the other reasons why this helmet is such a good option, please check out Jim’s amazing review found on our very own WBW website. The review in question can be found here!

Jim did a very thorough review of the regular Simpson Mod Bandit, it will give you a very good idea of what to expect from the Carbon version. Just know it will be lighter on your head.
