Good helmet for the price
So, I got the Large Kali Nira Racing Helmet in the mail the other day. STOKED! First ride with it was this morning. The only thing I can compare it to is my cheap modular helmet that I got from another store, but with that in mind...
Fit: The helmet fits roughly about the same as the other helmet did, which is strange since this one is a size large and the other is a size medium and both have the same sizing chart. They both have a bit of a hot spot on my forehead and the chin area is really close to the point where I can essentially kiss the front of my helmet. There was a breath guard in the helmet and I had to take it out because it poked my nose. I'd say it's round oval to intermediate oval, to use Revzilla's terms. I'm definitely an oval, so that explains the awkward fit.
Weight: It's definitely lighter than the other helmet, but it's also not modular so yeah, that makes it easier to make a smaller and lighter helmet. It was a windy morning this morning and I didn't get any head whips when looking straight ahead, though it pulled a little during head checks.
Noise: Well, it's not a quiet helmet, but the noises are better than with my previous helmet. With the Kali, you just hear the wind going by. With the other one it seems like the wind was going right by your ear canal to the point where it almost hurt my ears. During head checks I do get a little whistle, so that's not cool, but it's not too bad.
Style: Sexy! Black, red and white. It goes well with the bike and probably increases visibility over the solid black helmet. I definitely like full face helmets over modulars. They just feel safer.
Etc: The other helmet did have the integrated visor. That was nice and I'll probably miss that at times. Speaking of visors though, I tried my best to fog up the visor on the Kali and I could only do it while stopped. When fogged up, the visor kind of makes a prism, and that's a little annoying. The field of vision is nice. With my old helmet I had to look down to see the speedometer and I don't have that problem on the Kali. I wish there was a narrower detent on the visor. The first detent is at about 2" open. I like cracking the visor for city riding, but that's not really possible with the Nira.
Overall I like the helmet, and it seems to fit the price point well.

Andrew H asked:This product looks more orange than red in the pictures, which is something I'd like since I'm riding a KTM. What's the actual, in person color of the red/white/black option?Sep 18, 2013
Philip R:Both kali helmets I have purchased are black and white, no colors. I am sorry, I cannot advise on any other color tint available from kali since I don't own one of color. On a side note, I will buy KTM for my next trail/off-road machine having experience with Honda so I applaud your bike choice.
Good luck with your helmet choice, Kali is amazing and very good, lighter than any helmet I've ever owned and that is quite a few.Sep 18, 2013
