Anyone ever use one of these half-helmets or watever you call them...The ones that can acts as a full helmet, but also flip up to an open faced one? I'm just curious as to the protection/safety capabilities of this type of helmet, and I guess, the Shoei Syncrotec in particular. Thanks

i have Schuberth Concept that lives in my closet. i have an Arai Quantum f that lives on my head. the Schuberth lives in the closet because i don't trust it. none of the flips (to the best of my knowledge) pass snell standards.

the flips are certainly much better than 3/4 helmets.

My Schuberth doesn't see a lot of daylight either. I really like the features, but next to the Arai, it feels like it weighs a ton. I've checked out the Synchrotech and may eventually get one. It feels a little lighter than the Schuberth, but it doesn't have the neat "robocop" flip down shades (really handy at dusk and dawn). Flips are great when you're filling up or dashing for the restroom, but for daily use I'll still be using the Quantum.
