Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard.  Is BRP going to limit production again next year? Or will they start stocking at reasonable levels?

On my last trip out I put on a third new shield. The first two were exchanged no questions asked through my dealer.  The third one worked well on the last trip, however that was early March and there were no temps colder then -10c. The third shield was a different part # then the first two, my dealer said he thought brp has the previous issues resolved. Time will tell, I hope so, they are an awesome helmet when the shield is clear.

They are going to be hard to get, I per-ordered one in March and was told it would be in in October, ordered it when I snow checked a 2020 sled, was told that was going to be the best way to get one, I tried one at the demo rides in New York, seems like a nice helmet.

Had 1 shield  replaced this winter and enjoyed it. I think in the warmer spring weather which I never got to enjoy that this might me too warm. I found I needed to run it on high to keep it clear which when was cold was fine. Yes some would crack it open a bit but I find that defeats some of the reason I want this helmet is because its so quiet.

Still really enjoyed it

Seems like these are a love hate thing.  No in between.  Guys either think they are the best helmet on the market.  Or that they are an overpriced piece of crap.

I  have owned a lot of helmets over the years and this is by far the most comfortable, quietest, warmest, most field of vision helmet I have ever owned. 4700 mi. last season and no problems so put me down for "best helmet on the market'.

We are on the "Best Helmet" list too, yes we had shield issues, but they appear to be resolved. Easy to install the communicators, field of vision is great, quiet.

I have mixed feelings because of the shield, however I am optimistic that is now resolved with the newest version Four big pluses with this helmet: huge visibility, very quiet, very lightwieght, and warm. The visor also works well and a user can quickly and easily switch from the dark shield to the yellow one in seconds on the trail when light conditions change.

This helmet certainly has my interest, field of vision and warmth it claims but based upon my own experiences riding with others who have invested I think I’ll stand down before the test pilots have completed their reports (complaints) and BRP has acted upon them before I invest. This helmet has got issues that are far too disappointing when out riding for days on end,

I hope they can pull it together for better results from you test pilots for the second season on the market.
