    Default Revolt Turismo - A new winner in entry level helmets!

    Hi guys,

    Was having a tough time with my previous MT Blade helmet in terms of usage for touring. Since last couple of rides to Coorg and then Bengaluru keeping speeds of 130-140kph on highway was troublesome as the helmet was getting extremely noisy (not much a thing that mattered to me). But the helmet was getting scarily unstable and was giving a feeling that it will come off.

    So I started research on opting for a helmet in 9K budget for everyday use an touring (Until my Bell RS-1 arrived from USA)

    1. Entry level HJC's were not upto the mark and heavy.
    2. SOL helmets may have been good. But are heavy and a few models that i liked were noisy as hell.
    3. Did not want to look at AXR or THH.

    And then came a pleasant surprise when I got to know about a brand of helmet that just forayed in India, Revolt Helmets via Facebook.

    Webpage: www.revolthelmets.com
    Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/revolthelmetsofficial

    I sent them a PM asking about the details. Got to know that they are engineered in Italy and Germany and manufactured in Vietnam. Best part was as they are building up dealer network in Goa they had sent a sample piece to a popular riding gear store here. I made a quick dash to the store to check the helmet. The owner was kind enough to allow me to wear the helmet on and take it around for a spin to check it out and first impression is as follows:

    1. The helmet feels and is lighter than my current MT Blade. Its actually 150gms lighter than MT Blade. Thats because it is DOT only certified (I feel)
    2. Build quality and graphics is on par with MT Blade.
    3. The helmet is much more silent than the MT Blade or SOL (Riding the Duke 390)
    4. Did speeds of 150kph on a lonely stretch of road and it was super stable. Didn't move an inch.
    5. Airflow/ventilation is fantastic.
    6. The padding is thick and comfy. Making for a very comfortable and snug fit.
    7. Visibility through the helmet is wide and impressive. On par with MT Blade.
    8. The helmet fit on the head is the most perfect for Indian head types. Firm and comfy. Doesn't cause any irritation or headache.
    9. And now coming to the most unbeatable part, the internal visor is the best I have experienced till date on any helmet I used. Its tad perfect and optically doesn't clutter a bit.

    After getting impressed with the helmet followed it up for purchase with their FB page and paid 5,999INR via bank deposit and got the helmet in florescent yellow for better road visibility. I have now done over 1500+kms and I have no reasons to complaint whatsoever. I would recommend the Revolt Turismo over MT Blade or SOL any given day to my riding buddies and to you all.


    Now they can be even brought online from: store.throttle.club/helmets


    Enjoy the pictures and feel free to shoot any question

    Hey Akshay,

    Want to know about the noise at higher speeds? and also the actual weight of the helmet. I have a ZEUS one at present, man it get noisy the moment I touch 80kmph and post that ears start hurting because of the noise. have been reading, reviewing other helmets. Not able to make up my mind for a budget of 6K what to buy.

    Peace!

    By the by, thanks for bringing this model to notice. Else wouldn't have known about it.

    Rode it at speeds of 140-150 on my Duke 390. Its silent and stable at the same time. Super happy with my purchase and I strongly recommend you to go for one without any doubts or hesitation in your mind

    Thanks Akshay. I think you missed out on the weight. Could you pls let us know the weight of the helmet?
    As I was looking at MT Axxis as one of the options.

    Peace

    Thanks very much for your detailed review, Akshay! After finding a thumbs up from a fellow XBhp-ian, I'm a little confident of using the link and going ahead with the Turismo. Cheers and ride safe!

    Silent at 140-150kph ! That is really good for 5999/-. You sure not wearing ear plugs right coz even the HJCs are not silent at that speed. There is certainly a wind gush !

    No ear plugs mate. I own a HJC FG 17 Mamba, AGV K5-S and a Shoei RF1200. Compared to my HJC and AGV (with vents open) this is much more silent.
