    Supposed to be what the new Klim Krios is and before that the Uvex something.

    $440 delivered, 1.1/1.2kg and about $350 cheaper. It is ECE approved to.

    Haven't got it yet. Hopefully all smooth.

    I have got gear from Germany before and it has all been good.(fcmoto)
    Shipping was very reasonable.
    Actually 438 delivered including shipping and minus VAT.

    Got a black carbon Klim Krios at the DC Int'l Moto Show for $449.
    Came with two shields, clear and dark tint, and Pinlock 70 insert.

    Best fullface helmet I've owned.
    Pros: Super light weight and comfy fit. Large field of vision.
    Cons: Fogs up without Pinlock and ventilation is moderate.

    I will give a little review when I get it.
    Probably won't be riding in it for a little while though.

    Looks nice Frenchy, look forward to your thoughts when you have had a chance to use it. Did you do ribs again? On the new berg?

    Don't want to scare you, but mid 2016 Louis had a recall for the Nishua NTX-3 helmet (failed impact test..)
    Maybe want to keep an eye on their website...
