around 15K per lid. though some of them might be higher. also there is a waiting period of around a week as they need to be imported from the US.

Yes the pic is taken at RMX. I have been using Boolean since last 1.5 yrs and it holds up very well during highway rides as well as offroading. its pretty comfortable too. The only problem is, it has in built sun glasses which pops out when you jump over the bump or rough patch. So i will take those out. For rs. 1700 it is VFM.

I generally use either cramster or On The Rocks-The Adventure Store

Both stock decent stuff and while one is based in Bangalore the other is in Hyderabad.

Check out the Buffs on the adventure site:


Its a super cool thing to have. You must be able to find it elsewhere as well.

I however prefer my Kaifah inside the helmet.

My fiancee gifted me the Eclipse - by Vega (Black) which is an open-jaw sibling of the Boolean for my daily rides to work.

I had to go back to the shop as the visor she had got for me was with the mercury coating and wanted to get it replaced.

Got it done at no additional cost along with the shades (glasses) inside which was plain, which I swapped for a darker one.

Current prices :-

Boolean (closed jaw - modular) - Rs. 1250/- (1400/- for ones with graphics)

Eclipse (open face) - Rs. 850/-

To know more - Home (thehelmetshoppe)

PM me for the shop where you can pick it up from - he is a authorised dealer for Vega helmets and best part is that he even services them with the spares he has stocked at all the time (inner removable lining to visors and side panels).
