I am going to get a flip face helmet. Anyone here have the Shark Evoline, if so how do you like it?
I agree with you 100%! For me I decided a couple of years ago that a full face helmet is the way to go. Everyone has to decide what is right for them!:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:Is anyone concerned about riding with your chin/teeth/jaws in the direct line of punishment with the asphalt or other solid materials that one tends to come into contact with in an accident? I used to ride in a half helmet, graduated to a 3/4 and then went to a modular and dont feel safe without the chin guard down now. Am I the only one that feels it kinda silly to wear safety jackets with armor to protect against road rash but leaving your jaw/teeth exposed to horrific and expensive dental and bone damage?
Dont take this as a "I know better than you", because Im still learning every day, but Im just curious as the your thinking on the matter and why this does not concern some of you. Its kinda like playing football today without the guard to protect your teeth/chin/nose...asking for some additional pain, suffering and expense in that manner. Once you get used to the chin guard, it is a great safety feature. The Shark helmet has taken the riding community by storm but I usually see the guard in the "out of the way" mode except in winter. OK....go ahead...Im braced for the following posts that tell me to mind my own business!
P.S. Nearly all modular helmets offer the interior sun shade, so that is no real exceptional benefit to this helmet.
