      Well i have no clue what else is provided with the helmet. Will check and let you know. And no dark visor. But then you are tempting me to get one. Need to think about it.

        A very good and safe biker not only because he can pop up either of the wheels,scrape his knees on a corner or go fast and make it look stylish but because he very well knows his limits and capabilities and has the patience to learn about others and ride safe ! :)

              Further, will there be a VAT markup on the prices mentioned on the SOL india website? That is what the local dealer here told me, which I seriously doubt..
              Teejayy, I am also interested in SL48s, but can't try one because I am in cochin. I had sent a mail to Spartan progear regarding sizing options. What they told was to measure using a tape above your eyebrow and see the corresponding size in the size chart which is available in the site.
              I am currently using a Vega Interstellar but I am not sure about its size!
              Need to find a way to select the correct size as I don't want to order the wrong size.
              By the way, I am looking for Red and White. My current helmet looks odd with my R15 Limited Edition. It used to match my blue Pulsars...
              How much does the SL48s weigh?

                No idea as to how much it actually weighs....But I can say that there cannot be a better choice at that price point..The padding, ventilation, overall finish is just superb..Look no further and stick to SOL..

                With regards to size, go by the helmet size chart on the site. Comparing it with the size of other brands (Vega in your case) would not help since manufacturers follow their own standards for sizing. AFAIK they only have L and XL for SL48. I would suggest to order as soon as possible since they are running out of stock and the next shipment is to be received only in the 2nd half of the next month..

                  Not sure if AutoQueen stocks SOL helmets but Sunnysideup could confirm.

                      You've been suggested those helmets because that's what you can get for that budget! If you want something better, you will need to revise your budget......

                        Ah..Thanks Shubz.

                        But I went ahead and removed it .Put in the black visor that came free with the helmet.
                        Here is a video of the same. Hope it helps somebody

                          • Hjc rps-10

                            hi everyone,

                            recently i have bought a hjc rps-1o monster benspies replica helmet from RIDERS DISCOUNT

                            initially i planned to pickup a sparx s07 helmet but my budget got stretched and got this one.

                            it took nearly 45 days to reach my place(was with customs office for a month).paid a duty of 4k.riders discount guys were very much friendly in responding to the mails and very proffesional.

                            the helmet is very much light when compared to the ls2 dragon which i used to have previously.paint finish is excellent and not to mention that i am sold for graphics .

                            havent used the helmet extensively it.will post a complete review of it after some days

                            pics of it:

                              • Purchasing helemets online - Query - Please help

                                Hi Friends,

                                I was planning to purchase a new helmet to eventually replace my CROSS helmet. I prefer a DOT/SNELL Certified helmet (althought it might stretch my budget a lot) . I was wondering how reliable and safe it would be to order one from an US based online store. I am sure many of you guys have done that. However, information in the thread is not enough to take a solid decision. Can any of you guys who have experience in ordering helmets from US based online stores help me out?

                                1. Which would be the most reliable online store to purchase a helmet from
                                2. How would be the mode of payment
                                3. What are the customs formalities
                                4. How is the customs duty calculated
                                5. How many days would be the the usual delivery time
                                6. Which brands can i choose from (less than INR 10K including shipping)
                                7. Are the customer care of these online stores reliable.
                                8. What could be the usually shipping charges
                                9. Since custom duty is determined later how can we pay the company and whom do we pay the custom duty to?
                                10. Is there any chance of getting the same lids in any Indian store with similar or slightly higher price

                                Sorry for lot of questions..
