No because you don't flip it up, it goes all the way back

yeh looked, very nice, seems the flip type arn't meant to be ridden flipped, so cannot see the point, it would have to be like yours and go right back.
thought they were cheap!

The Evoline is the only flip helmet at the moment that is legal open or flipped, the old bill are supposedly changing over to these

The flip ups that don't go all the way back are so you can smoke a fag or explain yourself to the cops without having to remove your lid completely when stopped for ridding like a knob....... Or so I'm told anyway??? 8)

Ps.... Take a look at the Caberg trip tivo, good lid without breaking the bank and it's got the Tom Cruise fighter pilot flip down dark visor for when you wanna look like Ice Man or Maverick (or a middle aged cock that never quite got past the mental age of ten on a cruiser trying to look cool like myself 8) )

yeh, looks nice but has been superseded by the kodo, i think i will wait until i can afford an evoline or cheaper copies appear, as i really want one to ride flipped back, open face style when it isn't raining, ,hailing or just too cold.

Got a caberg trip myself, not too bad but head does indeed get blown back. Like the idea of the evoline though.

I think that George Whites are really good with there prices all around & £179.00 for such a good helmet with all the features that it does have is bloody good & like I said he sells them for £100 less than anyone else!
