    Im in the market for a flipup adv helmet where its also possible to wear goggles.

    Do you have any recommendation?

    Have no dealers around who have this type of helmet. So I cant try any on. Have to buy online unfortunately.

    I just bought a Scorpion AT-950 and I like it. Modular design with flip up shield. Inside there is a drop down sun visor. You can wear goggles with the shield up, or remove the shield. Visor can be removed as well. Good all around helmet at a fair price that can be easily adjusted to whatever riding that you are doing.

    ...my goggles are the Oakley Crowbar MX. I used them with my Arai XD4. They are back out in the garage with the gear otherwise I'd take a picture with the helmet.

    I like these goggles because the field of view is very good- comparable to a helmet.

    The Touratech Adventuro Mod is a Schubert E1 with some extra farkles and appearance mods. One of the features is a goggle clip on the back. My goggles fit fine without removing the shield but would fit better with it removed.

    I sourced the helmet from a German vendor because it was NOS and priced right. 1743247090.jpg

    I went Touratec Adventuro Mod (It is a Schuberth but slightly tweaked by Touratech.) Absolutely love it.

    It does use the ratcheting strap, though, so no D rings when you want to lock it up to the bike. Aftermarket solutions exist.

    Seconding the AT-950. Ive been on the road close to two years now and my AT-950 Scorpion has been great. The ability to easily remove the beak was great in southern Argentina and Chile in the infamous Patagonia winds. No fails at all in any mechanisms. Added a quick release buckle rather than using the D Rings.
    I wish they were sold in South America so I could get a new shield, as this one’s getting beat I’d suggest if you ride SA someday you send a spare shield ahead of you somewhere, say Lima or Punta Arenas. Those are two cities well known for basic replenishments. It wouldn’t be hard to locate a shop or person you could send the spare to before leaving. 441D32B7-E0ED-449A-A7F8-E54BC7180656.jpeg

    Can you tell me more about the "quick release buckle" you added. I hate D-rings and if there is a fix for this I need to know.

    European versions of this helmet come with a quick release mechanism rather than D rings, not sure if you can get them as a spare.

    The Klim Krios Pro is worth a look. It has an auto-darkening visor and a beard-friendly Fidlock buckle.

    bah - OP wants a flip-up. Nevermind. Carry on.

    Check out Touratech they have a new Mod helmet manufactured by Nexx . They Are offering a full carbon or regular Polly Shell . Thinking about trying one as I really like to have a sun visor and lots of air flow.
