Default Re: Which Helmet? Tips on buying a good helmet

Which is the best place to buy a original LS2 helmet here in Bangalore, anything close to marathalli would be preferred or if the place comes highly recommended for authentic stuff, I do not mind travelling far as well.

I also bought a twister 2 weeks back as an additional helmet and like the features given for the price, it's a very good entry level helmet I think. Got it for 3900. It's very well worth the price.

Only problem with the helmet is, at speeds above 45/50, you can feel a gush of air/noise from the left side of the helemt, which is coming from the gap at the internal visor switch. Just try and cover the bottom side of internal visor switch with thumb and you can make out that the air/noise stops immediately.

Will try and fix this thing in the coming days, it is quite annoying on the go.

Otherwise I like the fit and finish of the helmet and also the internal visor and pin lock given.

any place in bangalore or online where we can source helmet inner liners for MT helmets? After 4 years the liners have worn out and lot of wind noise seeping through it.

Hi. I had written to Spartan Pro Gear regarding inner liners for my MT helmet of 4 years as well. They are charging ₹1650 for the inner liners only. I felt it's quite expensive for a 4 year helmet which would also reach it's usable life of approximately 5 years. Hence ended up buying a new helmet itself.
