I'd be concerned about it popping open on impact - I don't see how that could be as rigid as a standard full face helmet.

I'm with you on this one bro... A full face rigid shell is going to take
the fall. This clam shell rely's on the closure clips to secure it.
It may not take impact well.

Gotta agree with you guy's. Seems like a cool idea, however a good jolt may not keep it clamped shut. I'd need to see more research on it.

The cool idea hase a price. It,s gonna cost you about $800, thats too much for me. For that price you get the best Shubert system helmet, top of the bill helmet with a lot of experience.
I, ll take the chinstrap for granted.

Yeah I kind of figured the price tag would be another
loan payment

I'll take the standard brain bucket please , no loan or first born
required.
