Zeus Flip Face Helmet

submitted by IntruderPassion

After trying on several Flip Face helmets on while at Bike Week, I knew I was really in love with the Shoei, but the price made me gasp! When I got home I started looking on the net for one that might be cheaper, but finally stumbled across a review for a Zeus model. The low as under $100 delivered!

While it's not a Shoei, it does the job! The size chart on the web site was indicating I would take a large, but I have decided it was wrong & should have gotten a medium. The paint job is plain white, decent, no flaws, the airflow is one on top & one at the chin bar, both work well, sometimes too well! The chin strap is simple through the little metal rings type, but it does seem to come really close to the throat & the helmet has to be on just right to not choke me.

It's a simple, basic design, the liner is supposed to be removable, but I haven't figured that out yet (haven't tried!) There is a large field of view, no feeling of having blinders on. I do feel the aerodynamics are not the best, while it isn't what I'd call loud with wind noise, it does allow me to hear other noises more than my full face helmet did...somewhat distracting for me since it seems to funnel the noises from the bike right to me. It also seems to catch the wind coming over my windshield a bit more noticeably & I find myself sitting lower in the seat to avoid the problem. I haven't ridden in the rain in this helmet yet, so I don't know if it will leak like some of the other flip face helmet brands.

Would I buy it again, probably, but in a smaller size!! I still want a Shoei!
