KBC helmets


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any real life info on KBC? I looked at the flip front yesterday and it looked like a better product than the Nolan or the HJC.


I really miss having a flipper.

rob, i have a HJC flip helmet. yes the KBC does seem nicer. however the KBC lacks some padding in the upper forehead area. with my narrow head<not mind> it tends to be uncomfortable.

i tried a Shueberth on friday,and to me, the neck roll padding seems too tight and restricted head turns. but the quality surpassed any other helmet so far.

just my opinion! thumbsup.gif

My son has a KBC motocross helmet. Same price range as my HJC motocross helmet, but better fit and finish, with a much nicer liner - it's a winner.

I have the KBC flip front. I think it's a good summer helmet as it seems to let more air in around the chin area. It may be cold in winter riding conditions, but I have not tried it.

The visor has a little distortion, but not unbearable. The visor also does not seal very well at the top, so some water tends to run down the inside in a rain, this is irritating. Maybe something is wrong with my particular helmet.


I also have the Nolan N100 and I usually choose it if there is any doubt about the weather or if it's cold. I'm not sure I would buy the KBC again. I may try the latest Nolan.

I have a KBC flip front, Freeze model, which I like a lot. The venting is good (it has a push down vent thingie on the top that seems to improve air flow) and the fit is good for my head,tight, but that's good IMHO. It's noisier than my HJC C-14, but all modulars are, I'm told, and with the windshield up a couple of inches, the noise goes away. Don't know about leaks, as I haven't used it in the rain. The seal seems tight however.
