Got it 2 years ago from motorcyclesuperstore. $75 shipped. This helmet is no longer available for sale by motorcycle superstore.

Crashed in it a couple times - but no helmet impact.

Crashed in it Sunday, in the straight away leading to high speed right hander. (on the track of course, I think the turn can be taken around 90+mph or so - I don't know, I don't have a speedo)

Helmet took almost all of the initial pavement impact. I popped right up to my feet after sliding/tumbling to the air fence.
Also thanks to:
Teknic for my suit and gloves
Alpinestar for my boots

Thanks KBC for making a great product and saving my noggin :thumbup I'd have no problem buying a KBC product.





So next time you have doubts about a helmet that's less than $700+...don't.

A little rubbing compound & you probably can get a few more seasons out of that baby! :punk


Glad you walked away.

my tinted shield is undamaged from the crash (clearly I landed on the back of my head :lol ) but I gave the helmet and shield to my girl's little sister.

Including the:
Teknic suit
Alpinestar Boots
Teknic Back Protector
KBC Helmet
Teknic gloves

I had on about $600 of worth of gear.

Keep that in mind when you are contemplating the next $1700 suit.

Your gear served you well, I'm glad you're okay. If she ever decide to sell the shield let me know. I looked and looked but can't find one.

i crashed in a joe rocket suit worth $800 in a low/mid-speed corner and blew the zipper open and leaving the front of my torso open to the elements a week and a half ago. i kept that in mind when i ponied up the dough for my dainese suit to substitute.

People who pay $900 for a lid and $1700 for a suit are nuts. The gear is nice and good quality but in no way worth all that cash. I've gone down at the track in Bilt gear from Cycle gear and a sevenzerozeven helmet and NEVER had a problem. Held up great.
