The affordability of this helmet is what makes it so popular among riders and has been designed and engineered in a way that understands what motorcyclists want.
If you are courier or somebody that works for deliveroo making regular deliveries you understand the time consuming process of having to constantly remove your helmet. The benefit of this helmet is that the front flips up allowing you to carry out those everyday tasks such as snacking on the go, taking a breather at the traffic lights or answering your phone.
On the drafty topic of ventilation the Leopard Flip Up Front Hemet has fully adjustable air intake vents on the front, on the crown and exhaust ports on the rear. This setup will maximise air flow around the helmet reducing heat build up and misting. Should you need to clean the inner padding its fully removable.
If you ride in the winter time when the sun is low in the sky it can be a real challenge to see properly due to the glare off the road. The good news is that the drop down sun visor overcomes this issue allowing an unbroken field of vision.
To summarise this helmet is not trying to be anything it other than an affordable helmet. Whilst certain aspects of the helmet may feel a little clunky such as the visor and vents, its super cheap and with the ECE 22-05 rating its going to offer a good level of protection.
