2006 KBC VR-2 Legend, I have had it for about 3 months now.

I wouldnt buy one again though...

Negatives

- Noisy (top vents whistle even when closed, cheap glue has been used to mount them as one is lifting already)
- Cant&#39; close off all the front vents (I had to duck tape the inlets on the inside up)
- Chin webbing doesnt come back far enough (lets too much air in underneath).
- Plastic mounting clips on side of visor are weak (broke off after a months ownership), now has no ratchet movement, comes up when you turn your head to the side and doesn&#39;t seal right.

Positives

-Cheap ($350-ish)
-Very Light
-Nice fit
-Doesn&#39;t fog too easily (good ventilation)

For my CL-14 they were $19 for the HJC one... or $35 for the Oxford version. The oxford one just shitted me no end - but the HJC one was AWESOME!!!!!! I imagine the price would be about the same.

Sorry, I was actually enquiring on the price of the Helmet itself rather than the breathbox, I should have made my post a little more clearer.

yep got the whole accessory pack with it. AND stickers!

haven&#39;t road-tested it yet (NOT literally!!) but there&#39;s vents EVERYWHERE on it

lol, nice, let me know how it goes if you get to test it before I get to :P

although it will be my first helmet, other than my cheapo AGV $90 helmet I bought from Cashies so I could drag race :P
The one I am picking up has a clear visor, which is probably better for me seeing Im just starting out, and need to be able to see absolutely everything I can without worrying about tinted visors, dimming my vision or something :P

To all those who complain about the XR1000 being bloody noisy:

Go try an AXO RR6 (if you can still find one)

Then, after you get your hearing back, we can do some comparisons :P

For the record - I got an XR1000 in Diabolic III which replaced my old carbon fibre AXO RR6 :D

[/b]

Definitely not the user, my last helmet (HJC) I have had for like 4 years and it is still going strong.

I haven&#39;t even used the visor that much and the clips simply snapped (yes, it was installed correctly). I haven&#39;t used the top vents either and one of them is actually lifting off the helmet (cheap glue I presume).

I would suggest blocking off the two side vents on the front of the helmet, cold air pours in them and you can&#39;t block it off with the slide switch (it only blocks the middle vent).

Realistically I think the helmet would be good as a cheap race helmet (I believe this is what a fair few crew get them for) but as an everyday commuter type helmet it blows.

Now all I need is a MIG 29 to go with it and i&#39;ll be happy!!

It actually is a motorcycle helmet but it is Chinese and doesnt have any Australian Standard certification...or any sort of certification at all :sick: the shell is made of fibreglass and has quilted padding inside it. There are two visors that fold down; a tinted one as per the photo and a clear one. The big black bit with the Commie insignia on it does not move.

Could you please recommend me with a lid including pros cons etc. The rest of this thread is really messy... it&#39;d be sweet if you could list for everyones benefit.

I second that! It&#39;ll surely increase the survival chance on the road.

Wonder if the glass/plastic bits will break to pieces if the helmet crash against the gravel though...

Their web site stated that "We use a polycarbonate material that has highly reflective properties just like glass. However, unlike glass this polycarbonate material is almost unbreakable and much lighter too.".
