Anthony Sean D:The XR1R is a "race level" helmet, and as such I would say the optimal riding position for this helmet is more the tilted racing position. That said, I don't think it is as race specific as say, the Arai Corsair V or for that matter even the Shoei RF-1100. I have one of the Shoei RF-1100 helmets as well as the Nexx XR1R, and the XR1R seems better suited for upright riding than the RF-1100. Less noise and buffeting. From my own personal experience, I would place the XR1R somewhere in between the Shoei RF1100 and more touring/upright specific helmets such as the Shoei Qwest and the Arai RX-Q.Mar 20, 2012
4Gene9:The eyeport is so huge, both vertically and side to side that I don't think that that aspect would matter. However, ventilation is surely designed for upright riding. I think that in a crouch you wouldn't get as much air flow. I ride an old Honda Pacific Coast which is very upright and a much newer Honda ST1300 which is semi-crouch. I haven't really noticed much difference. (Both behind something of a windscreen) But something tells me that if you were on an R6 or similar, you wouldn't get adequate flow. Hope that helps.Aug 8, 2012
AliB:This helmet is designed for those who are looking for an ultra light helmet, and not necessarily designed for a specific riding position. The eye port is one of the largest on the markets, so in multiple riding positions, the visibility should be great.Jan 6, 2012
