    nope, not good.
    get a proper full face helmet with snug fit for better protection. With this "motorcross" helmet chances are you might get hurt when the front portion which is very weak snaps on impact., very small impact that is.

    Well, some guys who came to our place for stunt show wore Vega 'motocross' helmets. One of those guys lost control while doing a stoppie and fell face first. I am very sorry for him and his family, but he is dead now. An ambulance was at the spot and he was taken immediately to a hospital. People who went with him to the hospital said that he had snapped his vocal chord and even if he lived he would never have been able to talk.

    That had something to do with the handle bar hitting his throat or neck area or so. Atleast that is the info i got from reliable sources.May his soul rest in peace.
    Nonetheless, let's leave that there, the motocross styled one's are no good, and just add on to the looks. And that's about it.

    Fake ones ofcourse. You see, the helmets being sold for 300rs roadside are also having the ISI markings. So really, the markings are not something which alone can certify for the quality, as it can be faked.
    Instead , buy from the reliable sources and authorized dealers, so you can live in peace.

    Am not saying it's enough or not enough protection. But even with a high grade helmet you cannot say you are really protected. We all need to keep something in mind always. "No helmet can protect the wearer from all possible impacts. To be effective a helmet must fit your head correctly." These are not my words but it's printed on a piece of textile inside my helmet. Make no mistake of your own that tempts others to make mistakes for you. I don't mean to frighten you by any means. You must always strap your helmet in such a way that no slack is left. Try to make sure you have a good fit for your cheeks. Safety is the best style available out there.

    These kind of helmets are not build for the daily use. They have many disadvantages, read them and tell me how much sense does it make

    1.the design does not inspjre confidence,it is too flimsy as compared to modular or full face helmets.
    2.no protection from wind and dust.
    3.wind noise is almost so annoying from speeds above 60
    4.helmet wobbles once the speed increase..probably the only needed reason not to opt for this kind of helmets.
    5.cheap paddding and lack of snug fit causing the helmet to move around once worn.
