I bought a Roof Boxer helmet 4/5 years ago. it looks fantastic, but the quality is really dodgy, no vents, the seal around the visor doesn't and the chin bar is secured with 2 cheesy snap fasteners. The quality has improved recently apparenly and the full face Diversion model has had some good reviews, but i wouldn't recomend the Boxer. I'd hate to find out how it crashed. :shock: i don't use it anymore
The Bumper (the one pictured above) works out to be around $260 plus shipping. Acceptable IMO, but the cool one, the Boxer Star works out to $470.70! Yeah, my head staying in one one peice is worth a lot of my money, but I can't justify that much on cool looks alone. It better wash and style my hair and massage my scalp for that much cash :!: Now that Stu has said what he has while I was drooling, I would have to have hit the Powerball to justify one
i have a roof boxer 5 (the fighter pilot one). like the other guy said. the mouth piece part is help on my a one snap on each side. the visor doesnt fit well and it feel like riding in a convertable after 40mph. just doesnt inspire alot of confadence at all. looks cool though.
The newer ones are better made, I tried a Daytona and it was (as far as you can tell without taking it to bits) as well put together as the Arai I eventually bought. It just didn't fit, sadly, it seemed to be built for people without chins
Why do the Europeans get all the cool helmets? And we here in the US get helmets that look like they were left with 3-year-olds and a box of crayons. I wrote to HJC complaining about not being able to get the Euro graphics on this side of the pond. They said "we're sprry you don't like our new graphics, but they got a lot of "up" votes on facebook." In other words, screw me and my complaints. I'm purchasing a new helmet from England. The freight charge is outrageous ($70), but it's cool as long as I don't have to pay duty on it.
