Protection & Durability
They look good in the picts, however they seem baggy in the legs. I have worn these a few times now mostly on 80 plus days and the elastic above the knees helps with air flow. As for safety, these have very thin aramid panels. While they may offer some anti road rash abilities there is less padding than I would like. Can't say that I would wear them out and about for casual ware.

Ease of Install
This is what the FJR needed! The Power Commander III helped with smoother throttle performance . The bike pulls harder throughout the rev range. Also better gas mileage. Should have been purchased when I bought the bike.

Quality, comfort, styling and function make this worth the price. Other helmets may be cheaper in comparison most suffer in over all quality.
Pros: 1.) Comfortable to wear all day long 2.) Lots of padding (see note about fit) 3.) Levers are solid and work well with winter gloves 4.) Shield is easily removed 5.) Visor seals keep the rain out even during heavy down pours 6.) Good visibility 7.) Glasses fit. Also works with Sunax visor sunshields 8.) Works with Cardo Scala Rider G4 9.) Shield Lock mechanism that serves duel function of lock or “crack” open good for extra ventilation
Cons: 1) No sun-shield 2) Solid colors only! No graphics?! 3) Noisy (see notes) 4) Chin guard flips up however it doesn’t flip out of the way of air stream causing drag (obvious). On hot days when you would want a three quarter style helmet, the chin guard and visor requires tools and time to be removed.
Notes: A key to getting the correct fit are the cheek pads. Get the correct size to fit your face. With my current set up on a Yamaha FJR with a long windshield I get a lot of wind noise around the shield and chin guard pivot areas. This could be unique to my current configuration. However with the windshield fully extended the helmet is quiet. Also note, without a windshield the wind noise is tolerable and mostly in the moderate range. This is in comparison of a cheaper non-modular helmet. Yes, I love this helmet and have enjoyed putting well over 20,000 miles on it. The Multitec has set the standard for me to compare all modular and full face helmets.
