Anyone have or tried a Roof helmet? Im thinking about getting the flip up helmet from them, cause its too damn hot here in SWFL to sit in traffic with a full face helmet.

I've had it. The worst helmet I've ever owned, sorry for Roof. :mad:
It's damn heavy, noisy and when it's raining water get inside.
If you want a serious modular helmet get a Schubert or a Nolan (they even got blue tooth microphone), the best around.

Can't say about the Roof brand, never saw one. But There's another flip-face fropm Italy sold under the name Caberg. Very similar to the Schuberth with the internal, tinted half-visor. A freind of mine bought one and he's happy with it. I tried it but his was a bit too tight for me and bothered me after about 1 hour. I'd probably need the next size up. Constuction and quality looks good, and they're about $100 USD less than the Schuberth. Just a bit harder to find retailers. Here's their web site.

Forget ROOF , you will be disappointed
the look is great but the performance is bad
I change mine for a XLITE Agostini six months after my purchase

Thanks for the info! Anyone have any comparisons between Caberg and schuberth? How do they fit? Any noise issues?

Modular helmets are ALL more noisy and heavy than others, caused by opening mechanism and all those thin connections lines where air gets in.

A new one VERY nice and light is new Airoh TR1, 1350 gr., available in several different colors and with sun flip too.



Schubert is considered one of the best, but it's very expensive.

For sure it's a stormtrooper/star wars design, have you seen the chrome edition of TR? ;)

I know that here they costs about 160€, you should check on the website for your local retailers.

Those look nice, but they dont "flip" up like the Roof or schuberth do they?
