Hey out there guys
I want to buy a full face flip up helmet with a sun visor of some sort . I tried a full face and liked it except for the time of day riding directly into the sun at around sunset. That was a good sentence. So ,I have come across a schuberth helmet with a built in sun visor that flips up or down behind the face shield.
Does anyone have any experience with this helmet or any suggestion on another one with a visor .
Thanks in advance
Bill

Check out Jarow also, They make one similar to the Schuberth

I tried one on a couple years ago and it felt more comfortable than my Symax. I like the flip down sunvisor a lot. My next helmet will be a Jarow.

I read the info on the helmet from the web site you gave me and I am going with the jarow. Thanks

I've not ridden with a full-face helmet in years. I'm considering buying one now for winter riding.

Back when I used to ride with one, I rememeber getting an up-draft of air, from the chin area, right up my face. I remember it as being quite annoying.

Does the Jarow have a way to prevent this "open" area from allowing wind to push upward across my face? It looks like a good helmet and a possible choice for me.

I use a full face helmet in the winter that is a flip face. To keep the air out I use a leather neck wrap that looks like a triangle. I pull it up over my chin and then put my helmet strap over it to help keep it up. I ride when the temp is in the teens with this arrangement.

The helmet I use is a Nolan but it is old and when I got it there was not a lot of choice for a flip face.

ps Dave, Did you ever sell yor trike?

Check out a Caberg Justiissimo . It is a dead ringer for the jarow.
Motrax MCA Ltd. I have a quick release large or medium size windshield. It is definatly not small. The wind I get is an updraft or side wind with the open face helmet just like an air hose up the nose. With a full face there is little to no updraft . And as a bonus when a side wind comes up I can actually look around without looking for the sweet spot behind the windshield. There is no comparison to riding with an full face. These observations are on the boss hoss only and should bre tried at home. Now the choice seems to be jarrow/caberg. Who makes the real helmet.
