Dual Sport Helmets w/ Internal Tinted Visors

Hey Guys,

As a glasses wearer, I prefer to have helmets with an internal tinted visor, as dealing with prescription sunglasses is a hassle. So I figured we could make a list.

So just name the helmet, and maybe post a link to a site you can buy it, to the manufacturers site, or maybe a youtube review or something along those lines.

Hopefully this could eventually be stickied!

Preferably helmets that people can still buy :)



Acerbis Active - http://www.adventure-spec.com/defaul...rt-helmet.html





AFX FX41 - http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/afx-fx-41-ds-helmet






BILT Explorer - http://www.cyclegear.com/CycleGear/T...3199_200897_21






Spirit DSV2 - http://www.spiritmotorcycles.co.za/m...or-detail.html






Nolan X-Lite X551 - http://www.adventurebikewarehouse.co...n-X-Lite-X-551






One thing I noticed is that the BiLT Explorer and the Spirit DSV2 seem to be the exact same helmet. Which is interesting, and sorta concerning. They are both in-house discount brands. So it seems they are... china-specials.

Found another one, seems to be a copy of the Acerbis, and there is a 3rd copy called the Wulf Prima Speed.

This one is obviously the European version of the AFX FX41, or a knock-off.

I really like the visor in my HJC helmet, street not dirt, incredibly useful. I stopped using it because with the visor so close to the bridge of my nose, I think an accident would really hurt where sunglasses wouldn't. Never did much research, but I can't see how it wouldn't mess up your schnoze/potentially eyes in a jarring crash.

That looks exactly like the Spirit DSV2 and the BiLT helmet I posted above, just with some LS2 stickers stuck on it.

It is the LS2 MX455

I do not know about the Spirit DSV2 and the BiLT helmet, but the LS2 has a ''pump'' style cheek pads. It works like the ''Nike Air'' type pump.

I found that LS2 is one of the fastest growing helmet brand. In the 2014 Dakar, 100 riders (Between bikes and Quads) used LS2 (including Cyril Despres)

Local dealer told me his Bell rep was in a couple weeks ago and mentioned they were developing a new DS helmet, similar to all the above helmets. My googling search skills suck, I couldn't find anything. But, I remain hopeful.

Um... What? In my searches I do see there is an LS2 MX455 model that sports the dual shield but it doesn't appear to sold here in the US?
