Joe Rocket Carbon Pro Helmet
Great carbon helmet for the price, Sena 20s fits well.
Just had my first ride in this helmet and so far so good. I bought this to get a lighter weight helmet -check, that looked good- check at the right price-check. The other thing I needed was a helmet that I could bolt my new Sena 20s onto and it wasn't easy finding information on one that could do that with any certainty. Backed up by Revzilla's great customer service I took a chance on the Joe Rocket and it works like a dream.
It is tight to get on, or maybe it is my ears, but once on the fit seems very true to size and secure feeling. It does fog a wee bit at the bottom when stopped, but clear as a bell on the go

Great value in a Snell rated 3/4 helmet
Fit and comfort is excellent, relatively light and very well made. I love the built in face shield which is very comfortable, at speed, and gives good protection to the face. I'm extremely satisfied with the helmet.

Great Helmet I love it
This helmet is a great value for what it is. It is exceptionally light because of the carbon fiber and the field of view is great as expected from an open face helmet. It was surprisingly quiet too. I ride an Indian Spirit with loud V&H pipes and this helmet greatly reduces the noise level as compared with my last helmet which was a full face. The only thing I would say negatively about this helmet is that when I get above 70mph the wind tends to push the helmet into my forehead a little because its so light and doesn't have a chin bar to offset the effects of wind . Since I have been riding more and breaking in the helmet a bit I havent noticed this as much and it definitely is nothing that would detract from the overall great features of this product.

The helmet look is awsome
Look is as far as it goes. The interior of the helmet is very cheap foam is thin and the material is scratchy. I wear prescription glasses in an Oakley flak jacket frame theres barley enough room to put them on because of the thin foam. Regular glasses with with wire frames would work fine. So bottom line if you do short rides and don't wear thick frame glasses or sun glasses this helmet is fine.

Great looking helmet
This helmet is beautiful. It is light. The view out the front is amazing - hard to believe you even have a helmet on because you don't see it.
It was a little painful to put on and off at first, but feels fine now.

Light Helmet and Excellent Face Shield
Really like the Face Shield- provided great periphery vision. Helmet very light. Just got back from its maiden voyage. 4.5 hours highway driving each way. Got caught in rain. Was pleased with performance.

A piece of Moto Art
Two days after ordering the helmet from Revzilla, it was on my doorstep - kudos to Revzilla. When I saw the photos of this helmet in an ad, I thought it was an exceptionally good looking helmet. But it looks even better in person. It is like a work of moto-art. The carbon fiber is beautiful with a gloss finish. Beautiful though it is, I ordered this helmet primarily for lightness. I have cervical disc issues and the doctor said I should try to keep my helmet weight to 3 pounds. I put the helmet on my pitney-bowes postage scale and it weighs exactly 3 pounds. So today I put it on and went for a 120 mile ride. I LOVE this helmet. It fits great. No open face helmet is going to be completely noise free. But the Joe Rocket Carbon Pro is much quieter than my current Nolan N42. Joe Rocket claims the Carbon Pro was wind tunnel tested and I believe this claim. From puttering around speeds up to well over the 55mph speed limit, I experienced NO buffeting or turbulence. Peripheral visibility is excellent - almost like not wearing a helmet at all. I remember when (years ago) Joe Rocket products were built "to a price" (cheap). Not true any more. This is the absolute best helmet I have ever owned, and that includes the Schuberth I paid a fortune for and can't wear due to weight and fit issues.
