The French Army and National Police purchased these brand new motorcycle helmets from Tecnoplast srl of Italy, based on their needs for having the very best motorcycle helmet for their soldiers and officers. Packed full of features that were requirements of the French army, Tecnoplast's helmet is recognized around the world as the very best available for motorcycle riders.
When we were offered these helmets on a recent buying trip in Europe, we knew we had to get them for our customers. Each helmet was brand new, still in the original shipping cartons, and even the protective plastic film was still on the visors. We were able to negotiate a great price on these motorcycle helmets and now they are in our warehouse ready to be shipped to our customers. This is an exclusive item you'll only find here at Keepshooting, and we expect these to sell out very quickly based on customer feedback.

Came in plan cardboard box. Nothing fancy, did have the sticker on the lens. First impressions of it is it is very light, and in some areas like the chin it feels flimsy. the button in the chin that lifts the front of it is plastic and the whole control could be better constructed. Over all the helmet is very good and I look forward to using it next summer. I might even buy another one before they go off sale.
Fit snug, loosened up perfectly. Very light. Says it meets all the stringent Euro standards. Actually feels too light. Have had for about 1000 miles, so far so good. No cover below the chin so when cool, air comes in pretty good. A little noisy maybe. Can wear glasses easily. Has very big shell so lollipop look but okay to me. I am medium and it fits well
I ordered this, at a cost of shipping, which was over 20 dollars each way! Sending it back for my "try on" coast almost 43 dollars total! So, to help all those who wonder about size, I wear a standard 77!/8 American hat size,and use a Bell Super Magnum size "medium" helmet from the early 70s that fits me perfectly. This helmet marked "media"is just TOO tight and small. It's actually the equivalent of a US "small" size, of about 6&3/4 to 6&7/8. I confirmed this as my size 7&1/8 head size measures about four centimeters larger in circumference than is specified for circumference on this helmet. Quality and construction is top notch! if only they had a larger size, ( the tag on the helmet says they go up to large, XL, and double XL )? This is a bargain tho, if you have small head size below a US size 7.
Wanted to keep this helmet, but even though I'm pinheaded, the medium was too small, had pressure points at the cheekbones, so I had to send it back. If it came in large, I'd get one in a second.
If you have the right size head and ride a motorcycle, this is a GREAT deal.... It is best for an oval head shape; if your head is more rounded, it may be snug on the sides. This is a high-end helmet, meeting all the current ECE standards (which are much more stringent than the USDOT standards) ; comparable helmets will easily cost $250 and up.
