    I’ve heard they run small. Did you buy your regular helmet size or move up 1?

  • Rafael Thomas

    Good looking. Better looking than the Simpson ghost but I'd rather pay the extra hundred for a more functional helmet.

  • DudeItsShags
    DudeItsShags 7 months ago

    I’ve been looking at that helmet isn’t it more of a rounded shape style then Oval head shape

  • Steven Khosravifard

    lane splitter blows ive had mind for less than a year and the visor rattles like mofo at speed. I reccomend spending the extra money on a simpson

    I've got Mic Issues too. I've been trying to do a Moto Vlog for over two months and just can't seem to get the audio down.

    Been running the bronze metallic with black shield for a year now. I haven’t had any issues with the visor. Even got caught in the rain on my way home after a group ride last week. Seal never leaked.

    Wait...so, low wind noise and you can hear your bike engine? I want one!

  • Walker Harrington
    Walker Harrington 10 months ago

    there is a tiny pin that lines up where the screw is when you put the new visor on, I didnt realize at first but might be causing the issues mine holds at any position

  • Scott Corrin

    Helmet looks awesome. How does it feel the sunglasses on? I have to wear glasses all the time and I can’t seem to find a helmet that is comfortable with my sunnys or regular glasses.

  • 4-n

    Sounds like a decent helmet for the money however it makes me glad a spent the couple hundred dollars more for my helmet. Has all the pluses and more and none of the negatives. But yeah, almost double the price.

    • 4-n
      4-n 10 months ago

      Shoei RF-1200 in matte black however since I ride a cruiser I just ordered the Shoei RF RS since it's optimized for the upright position. You can blame Blockhead for that😎

    • creepyyy
      creepyyy 10 months ago

      Which one did you get?

    • 4-n
      4-n 10 months ago

      I suppose almost double the price would count as a negative if I'm honest😎

    I was going to get red but where I live not a good idea

  • Brody Walters
    Brody Walters 10 months ago

    I have the same helmet and have 3 different shields for it....the stock clear, the dark tint and the chrome and none of them have any fitting issues. Something is definitely off with how loose it is and that gap you have on the right side.

  • Jason Guevarra
    Jason Guevarra 10 months ago

    My visor is the opposite, it seems a lil too stiff when opening and closing.
    Does anyone have an issue with wearing shades with this helmet? Maybe it’s my head shape but it feels weird with shades on, the arms or on top of my ears.

  • Necroskull
    Necroskull 10 months ago

    ive had mine for about a month now, the visor and visor system is hot shit on the lanesplitter. im now having like a creeking vibration at speed

    I love this helmet! I ended getting the bronze metallic with gold mirror visor. Dope review! Congrats on the 15k subs!

    I tightened the side screws and loctited them on the first day and my visor stops at any level.

    Do the visors have a pinlock option?

    • Tom rebel
      Tom rebel 10 months ago

      No, that's my only issue.

      No sir but they have anti fog replacement lenses

    • Half Dog
      Half Dog 10 months ago

      Nope. I use head and shoulders for a anti fog solution

    I've been riding on a Lanesplitter for a little over a year. It does the job, but damn is it noisy.
    Tighten up your visor hardware, it'll stay where you want.

    I love my Lane Splitter. I don’t have this issue with the visor. That’s weird.

  • Cristian Lorca Lozano

    I bought this helmet the past month and I'm totally in love. I want to replace the visor and put the smoke visor or the chrome one

  • SkidPig

    Looks BADASS!!!!! I was thinking too much red but now seeing it on I’m digging it!!!!

  • onemeaningsome
    onemeaningsome 10 months ago

    I've been wanting this helmet for a while and I've been wondering - is the locking tab on the visor annoying or ever difficult to mess with, while riding around? Thanks, Bird. Well done/thought out process as always. Keep up the good work. 🤘

    • onemeaningsome
      onemeaningsome 10 months ago

      Just an idea, for the visor/ridge gap - maybe use a little 3m foam (or rubber?) tape to keep a slight seal of sorts when it's all the way down.
      And yeah - the locking tab is really far back on the visor, an awkward choice for sure. Thank you for responding. That lock tab and lack of vent closings are the only things that'made me question that helmet.

    • Bike N' Bird
      Bike N' Bird  10 months ago +1

      The only thing that im considering annoying at this point (its more of a getting used to type thing) is that the tab is so far over on the left side which makes it a little difficult to lift the visor with your right hand while at a stop light. Other than that its been very easy

    The mic is picking up more wind noise compared to the last helmet.
