    Ive had mine now for 2 months. It is a very comfortable helmet and quite quiet. The chin peice is alittle close to the face making using a hyrdation mouthpiece alittle difficult but not impossible. I give it a very high 8 out of 10

    Picked mine up this morning from A1 in Ringwood.

    Titanium Large, i wanted a silver one to match the Adventure but with our ride starting in two weeks, i thought it better to seize the moment and make sure i had one.

    Rode about 20Klms tonight, very comfortable and quiet, only problem was the visor seemed to fog as soon as the visor was shut, i'll have to play with the vents, but i must say i am very pleased excellent helmet and very light :thumb

    I ordered one from BikeBiz in parramatta last saturday, Large Silver... Wont be here till June :(
    They "did" have a black Large and Medium in stock for me to try on...
    Impressed by the fit and how light it felt but have to wait for it to arrive to give it a test ride.

    I would imagine most places would have them, or be able to get them by now Greg. I got mine thru City Coast cycles in the 'gong and they just ordered the thing in for me. Took a week, no sweat.

    I'm with everyone else in my opinion, a good buy. The only thing I've noticed is that the airflow off the TA screen hits the peak dead on if I lift my head to much. No biggie tho'.

    After some 15000km of Zeus ownership I thought I would do a short review'
    This is one comfortable helmet,no sore spots at all.
    Very quiet,I can even get away with not using ear plugs.
    Visor and ratchet system works fine.
    Could be better vented but OK
    With visor on the fist click in the wet it tend to let a few drops in .That could be caused by the strange draughts behind my touring fairing.
    The strap buckle could give you the shits.Dont hurry it and its OK
    Best of all is it works.After a sudden drop and stop(a 90kph off,not a track in the dust for 5m,height unknown,then a hole where we dug in on landing)using the first available part of my body to brake the fall and slow the initial contact with the road.I landed on my Zeus:D Its fucked,I'm not:clap The much maligned Dririder x jacket did its job well,considering it only had the light armour in and my left shoulder was the second thing to slow my fall it did good.If any further testing is required dont call me:lol3

    Just picked one up a week or so ago, and agree with Maccaoz in my limited experience thus far. Good helmet.

    The bloke at the shop I got it from (the Scooter Shop in Launceston) has a few left but mentioned that the Aus supplier is currently out of stock, and he wasn't sure when they'd be back - might be tricky to find one.
