CMS D-Jet Helmet Review


wBWFirst Look: CMS D-Jet Motorcycle Helmet

February 2009 – CMS has now released a women’s version of the D-Jet with some nice graphics and new “Mutant” graphics for the XR-7 motocross helmet (see below)!

It’s been a while since we reviewed the CMS GP-4 full-face helmet, one of the lightest full-face helmets we’ve ever worn.

CMS is a fairly well known name in Europe — the helmets are manufactured in Portugal — but they’re not well known in the North American market, and that’s a shame.

The company seems to turn out some very nice product — take a look at these photos of the CMS D-Jet “jet” styled helmet, and I hope you can see the level of quality, fit and finish. The helmet is flawless, and it looks great.

Unfortunately, they sent us two mediums; a size medium D-Jet shown here and also a size medium in one of the new CMS XR-7 motocross helmets (First Look).

We have several evaluators who will fit an XS or a size large or a size XL, but no medium sized heads, so we haven’t been able to run a full webBikeWorld evaluation on these helmets, but everything else about them seems first rate.

The North American importer and distributor has announced that the D-Jet and the XR-7 will both be available some time this Spring, and we hope to get one for a full review.

The size medium D-Jet shown here weighs 1134 grams (2 lbs., 8 oz.). It has a nice tan-colored liner that feels like a soft flannel, and the black material on the bottom of the neck roll feels like soft suede.

The finish and the graphics are beautifully applied with no flaws that we can see. The surface finish has a rubberized feel.

The vents also have a rubberized surface, and the top vents and brow vent feel solid. The “jet” style visor has 5 click detents and it feels solid.

The chin strap on this helmet uses the newer style European “quick release” mechanism with a ratchet.

Adjust it so that it’s close to your neck size, and then the ratcheting teeth built into the flexible plastic tongue on the end of the chin strap will ratchet into the mating half.

Apparently, the North American importer will fit either this system or a D-ring, customer’s choice.

Pull down once on the nylon tab to release the ratchet. There’s no need for an extra button or loop to hold the excess chin strap because there isn’t any with this method.
