Helmet Harbor has a nice evaluation video posted on the main page along w/ pricing for the unit. I like the features and basic design of this new lid.
The price ranges from $350ish to $405ish (MSRP $449).
You can choose not only color, but type of inner visor (smoked, reflective, etc.)
You can probably contact one our board sponsors to work up some pricing as well
Any clamshell type is a compromise in protection for the chin area, goes without saying. There is however, the distinct advantage in comfort/cooling when running a 3/4 in the summer heat.
Having owned a clamshell for the last 5yrs (HJC), and having multiple getoffs while wearing it in the dirt or a slow speed getoff on the street, I'm happy with it. If I'm planning any kind of 'spirited' riding, the RF1000 is the ticket.
One feature that is a must have for me is a smoked internal visor. My eyes are exceptionally sensitive to light and I run a Sunnax shield inside all my lids. (German product that you can't find anymore) The other option of applying some film to the top of the lid doesn't provide the kind of clarity I require and so that's mostly a no-go for me. The internal visors available in Evo or Schuberth have the optical clarity I desire but I've been wary of the weight for longer rides. The inner shield also makes life a little easier in that you don't have to carry a 2nd visor with you. I almost always travel w/ a Clear and Smoked visor because trips tend to run from early morning to late day or midday to evening and I need the protection from the sun during the day but don't want to ride w/ a smoke shield at night. (have done it, just don't like it)
I'm thinking this is the first lid to give Roof a run for it's money in the flip the chin over to the back of the head design. (Roofs are from Europe and near impossible to get over here unless ordering from a UK website)
I also have a 3/4 lid that I won't wear anymore because I just don't like not
having the option to make it a full face when on the highway.
Just my 2 cents, thinking this lid is worth a look and apparently it fits round heads pretty well vice the Arai long skull type setup.
