I have been looking for an everyday use boot for the casual rides and finally got this one. even though they didn't have my size i went up a size and got it and used sole to dial it down to my size. It is perfect. looks nice, walking in it is easy, and the protection on it gives you enough confidence when riding. might not be for the long road but way better than your daily sneakers.

Well i got this for my new bmw rninet. it looks retro, stylish and cool. but if you are like me, riding below 80 km\hr with visor up and sun glasses, this product is the thing to go for. once you get past 80km\hr, the trouble starts though. It catches the wind and leans heavy on your brow, makes it a bit bothersome. The whistling noise coming from the visor being up is very annoying. It is so annoying at times, you try to find a different position for your head to lower the voice. However with visor down it is ok and as loud as the wind you are catching... i can only compare it to my other helmet which is a shoei, and when compared for noise and comfort, shoei is a much better one.
the insides look well enough, but give the impression of a simple helmet upon inspection.
verdict: i use this in between real cafe travels, like going from a cafe to another restaurant to casual riding in city. but when things get serious i would rather have something with better airflow, better aerodynamics and less noise.
ps: i don't use ear plugs. if you are into that, maybe you will never get bothered by the noise...

I did not have a chance to test it in harsh conditions but we rode through heavy and soft rain, it proved its waterproof specialties for me. very easy to install although i wish they (kriega) had small videos on their website to show different install techniques. I hate hard cases, and this saved me from carrying a back pack.
On another note US-20 might be a bit small if you like to carry around more than a few things. I like to go to gym with my bike for example and US-30 would have been a better choice it seems.

This is a great helmet, moving on from my agv ax-8 dual. I gave it 4 and 3 stars for comfort and airflow because, the neck of the helmet is too narrow for my head although I feel comfortable once I wear it. The problem is when I am taking it off, i get stuck a bit.
I ride an f 800 gs with a high windshield and since the wind blow over my head on this bike, when i shut down the visor, it immediately fogs up, which means i definitely need a pinlock.
I wish it came with the helmet pre-fitted.
