The helmet is much better constructed and reminds me of an HJC IS-Max, but with a nicer interior. The shield is easy to change and the chinbar locks firmly in place the 1st time. Now you can get the helmet in either a standard or Bluetooth Version. The V-Com Bluetooth System supports wireless connection to bluetooth enabled cell phones, MP3, GPS or other devices. It uses Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), which is also compatible with Bluetooth 1.1 and 1.2.Compatible Bluetooth profiles. The system has a Long-lasting Lithium-Ion battery. So this should last about 6-8 hours when actively talking or 48 hours on standby. The AC and USB charging adapters are included. The helmet also includes a smoke tinted interior drop-down sunshield, which we really like. Give it a try, we think you will like them.
