    Modular helmets seem to offer the best of both worlds, so I’m thinking of giving one a go. What should I go for?

    LaZer Carbon Monaco
    Check out the LaZer Monaco Carbon. I bought one mainly because it’s so light (1500 granms) and less tiring on long trips. Apart from that the finish is really good and the photochromic face shield works really well. No cheap at $500, but well worth a look.

    I’m very happy with the Speed & Strength SS1700 I bought for $179.99 from MotoSport.com. There’s a lot of good modular helmets around for that sort of money. Do your research and save $$$$!

    I’ll stick with my open face thanks. There’s no point riding a bike in anything else.

    Yeah I was young once @ronnie! I wear a modular helmet in the winter now. if you want to keep the cost down, there’s plenty below $100. Mine’s an AFX. I can’t remember the model, but it was only about $80.

    Try a Schuberth C3. It’s got a height-adjustable sun shield and the face shield comes with a Pinlock insert (brilliant). Having said that, the best thing is how quiet it is. I bought mine for $699, which seems average.

    You loose both ways with a modular. They don’t have the structural integrity of a full face helmet, but loose the freedom of an open face.

    Vega Summit 3.0 modular helmet
    Thanks for the replies guys. I’m going with a Vega Summit 3.0. Reasons?It fitted me perfectly, had the features I liked and came in at $169 , which seems mid-range price wise.
