I am seriously looking at the BVS2 helmet and have heard mixed reviews on dootalk.com.
Have you done any testing on these and what are your thoughts that it is not SNELL approved? Should every helmet be SNELL approved or just DOT? Nobody in my group has one, so I can’t test it.
The trigger for the flip down visor looks like it may break easily. Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks, Jeff Moyer in Sellersville, PA.
Thanks for your email! Helmets are items which are tied tightly to personal preference.
In the case of any full face helmet you should try one in real conditions first. The BVS2 is well liked by our staffers who use it. It has unequaled cold weather protection and visibility as a result of the anti-fogging system built-in.
Again, personal preference is a big factor here. Sorry I can’t be definitive – it’s the nature of helmets.
