My preference of LS2 was just cause of dark color of inner fabric, less cleaning. Will surely post some pics soon.

    For self, short ride, planning to get the open face of Vega but can't find a good outlet where could find nice collection in Delhi/Gurgaon.

    There is a USP in Cross, Cross weighs a tad less than the LS2, which is boon for wifeys, if you ask me. Reason being two, the heavier the helmet, we can handle it, but feeble creatures like ladies, they just don't like something dangling on their and sooner or later in a long trip, she's gonna complain about neck pain. I'd suggest make sure she gets the light weight one, her choice of course, and a certified one.

    You should prank him, Sameer was just now in my pocket when you called, but unfortunately he' currently unavailable. But you can always cross question them about who gave this number etc. One reason is, if your number is of the fancy kind, then there is a very good chance you might get prank calls. My GF had the same issue (fancy number) all random calls from all random persons, even had a big argument over it, but she had a point. Beeeg story.

    It's inevitable, there is 90% chance that the silver visor will get blotches either sooner or later, happened in most of my buddies' LS2 helmets.

    Best of luck.

    After bashing my RJays helmet with silver visor, both the visor and the helmet are going strong. Not even a single blotch, been two years.


    P.S. Sird, congrats on reaching your bike CC level on your posts.

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    Haha, proof testing is what really matter , isn't it so mate ??
    I haven't handeled or maintained the visor so nicely to be honest, did the cleaning and stuff, but not always with smooth clean cloth, then the small stones pelted on the visor from vehciles in front in monsoon caused a lot of scratches and dots on the visor, so ion a nutshell mine was not properly maintained, but the rest of the helmet is intact, not even a scratch, the new look glow is still there. So quality wise , it's pretty much no tension about.

    Yea, let me try to explain it. Have you ever wondered, using a modular helmet, suddenty you flip up and all of a sudden, your head feels heavy and dangly no matter how much you control it, that's got to to do with wind resistance and the way in which a helmet flips up too is a prime factor as it tends to fall back pulling the head backwards. Faced with Ninja and my another helmet. If it it the case with us, women definitely are gonna gripe about it sooner or later.

    Anyday I would prefer a full face for my girl, if the need be so. Never a compromise.

    have been using this helmet (Vega Shadow) for past one and a half years, but now I am thinking of replacing the visor (it has got enough of scratches over it), can I ask for some suggestions here for a shop/online store ?? Google-ing did not helpful

    Furthermore, I have a doubt, is it possible to have a scratch protection (like lamination or something) for its visor as I have observed that the chrome finish is very much prone to scratch ??

    Thanks

    Another friend has checked almost all shops but even he cant get shadow's visor. Getting it laminated would be of no use , e.g : if the film is thick, it will hamper the visibility, if the film is thin, it wont save from scratches. The best is while buying helmet get spare visors

    Yup, he is ok with that, the scratches are not hampering his visibilty

    I guess almost all the good brands like Daijya, Nuvo, Airoh, etc etc comes as scratch resistant, but again its resistant not 'proof'

    xpranav, there have been many queries like guys asking is it possible to go for a sun control film inside a helmet visor and lamination etc. It'd be insane to do so, coupled with no anti-reflective properties whatsoever (which makes the lami/suncomtrol basically 90% useless) and these so called "stickers and lamination" won't do any good, rather than to hamper your vision just when you're kinda tired and when you needed the vision most, not to mention the scratches it already has, it's a disaster waiting to happen, when you least expect.

    One thought would be to visit Vega distributors/other helmets shops themselves, sometimes even the store you just diss away thinking it might not be stocking so and so, might just be the one you've been searching for. I always never leave a single helmet shop unattended, if I go for shopping that is, even if it is road side

    Cheers!
