Service rating : Superb customer service .
Fast and free delivery .
Product : As an open face helmet wearer most of the year , when I had to wear my Shark Skwal on a very rainy ride home from Dartford , I experienced vision restriction in the chin area , and cheek discomfort from removing and replacing the helmet a number of times .
I decided to replace it with a "fuller coverage" open face helmet , and the Rpha Jet fitted the bill.
Just used it on a 210 ride today .
My other helmets , a Davida , a Shoei Jo , are very cool looking .
The Rpha Jet is quite cool looking in my opinion.
But offers superior wind and rain protection compared to other open face helmets .
The lightly smoked visor provided ( in addition to clear visor) was perfect for this end of April day . Need to test in height of summer to see if it is dark enough to shade eyes.
By the way , the visor change process is easier than anything I've ever owned.
There are a useful number of "locking" positions for the visor .
When fully down my nose occasionally touched the visor though .
I bought size small . I seem to be a small , occasionally medium, in other helmet brands .
I didn't get to try on a medium .
The shell size of a xs and s is smaller than m and L .
Nice and light helmet .
Bit draughty around the temples when temperature dropped .
Seems very comfortable , easy to take off and on .
This is my new "go to" helmet for autumn, winter, early spring riding , but would also be excellent for summer use , as has a cooling liner , and vents ( not tested yet ) .
