My friend was convinced that she was going to buy one, then tried on the Nolan N102. The Nolan won her vote...but it does NOT have the builtin visor.

I am on my 2nd Caberg Justissimo, I love them.

Good Points:- Flip front with single button, dark pilots visor, removable front leaving both visors, good air vents top and chin, removable under chin wind protector for winter winds, completely removable lining for cleaning/fitting speakers etc, good price.

Bad points:- Noisy without ear plugs, visor is a pain to remove and replace, allow at least 30 mins to remove and clean fully (front of the helmet has to be dismantled), visor expensive to replace if scratched but its hardy enough, single button is more fiddly to find with a gloved hand than the older J1 helmet.

I tested one roadside first last year, it did its job well, not a scratch on me

Found this "warning" on their website.

"Avoid prolonged exposure to strong sunlight as this may effect the paint work."

If you ride at times when there is NO "strong sunlight", do you really need a built in sun visor?

I just bought two new Justissimos for the wife and myself. i am very satisfied with the fit and the noise level. I think the helmet is much quiter than my Shoie was. Just wish they had a white available. At $300, I thought the price was fair for the helmet and i really like the sun visor.

Does anyone know who sells these in the San Francisco Bay Area? I would like to try one on before I buy.

Thanks,

Make sure that you try it on before you buy it, I had always had Arai Signet (L) and HJC AC-10 (L) helmets before and the first Caberg that I bought, I chose one that was snug (L), when I went on my first long ride, about an hour out of town, I had to stop and take my helmet off, because I was in such pain. I could only tolerate it for about 45 minutes at a time. Finally after about 5 hours of this, I took the helmet apart and rode with out the face shield. I went back to the shop where I bought it and purchased different size cheek pads and linier and refitted the helmet, it is great now. The problem was that when I closed the face it squeezed on my cheeks right where a nerve exits my cheek bones.

The finish is OK, the quality is very good. It is not as noisy as the HJC, but the Arai helmets that I have are quieter. With earplugs and my headset inside it is as quite as any helmet that I have had. The flip-down sun visor is very good, but I found that I can only wear glasses with very thin frames comfortable. The problem is that I must have big ears, they get pinched between the helmet and the frame in the Caberg.

I paid $178, plus the $20 for a linier and cheek pads at MotoLiberty.

Don't know about San Fran., but if you are in need of an excuse for a ride to Reno, NV Sierra BMW has them in stock. $299.00. After looking at other helmets I will be getting one of these to replace the Schuberth when the time comes.

I have one as well. Found it to be very comfortable and love the built in sun shade. I found it very noisy but hear plugs and my new V-Stream have solved that problem. I also had to work with my speakers to get them to fit correctly and I am still not completly happy with the way they fit (Autocom). After a few hours on the bike, my hears start to hurt where the speakers rest up against them. I think I'm going to try to find a nice pair of smaller "round" speakers to replace the Autocoms which I hope will fix the problem.

Overall I like the helmet.

How does it fit

Since I will have to order one of these on-line (no-one sells them locally), what type of head shape do you all have? Or, I currently have an old Nolan N100 that fits great, can someone offer a comparison?

I just bought that helmet from someone on the forum and I am getting used to it. I love the sun visor, but it is quite close to my face. The PO had speakers installed and a mike as cut marks and sticky residue prove.
So far I like it. I just noticed that it is wider than my older 3/4 face HJC (under the ...er... Harley label) and it is a bit more difficult to look into the blind spot without really turning your head.

We also just bought a Nolan N100 for kathy, still waiting to arrive...
Both units are Silver to match the bike... (oh vanity...! )

Looks interesting. I like the idea of the shade...

Not sure how the shield would work for me. I use Nolan and I usually ride with the shield up unless it's raining. Seems the design here is when you have the chin bar down you also must have the shield down because it is direct attached to the chin bar.... Even in all but the heaviest rain and when I have the shield down on my Nolan I am always one click from the bottom... Clears fog better...

Most of these helmets are noisy with the air coming off the windshield. Before I bought it I would try it on the highway at speed..

New Version of helmet

Hi,

was at a bike rally last week, and a buddy who owns a Justisimmo, just bought the lastest version.

The integral black visor is now adjusted from the top of the helmet, the inner foam has space for speakers, and is supposted to be a little quieter than the Justissimo, but your still advised to wear ear protection.

price was about the same, link to site, they call it the "rhyno" but in the UK it has a different name.

@ Jackd - the main visor works seperately from the chin bar, you can have the chin bar down, and the visor up or down, or open one click as you prefer. When you raise the chin bar, the main visor goes up with it. The little black visor is totally independent and stays where you want it, no matter what you do with the chin bar.

I found the Caberg to fit as well as my Shoei RF800, both large. I would say I have an oval shaped head (the wife commonly says "block head" but I dont think she is actually talking about the shape )

Caberg justissimo

Well got it from a local dealer here in Cleveland and it runs a tad smaller then others. I went with the large normally on others I get a medium.
Road about 100 miles today with it and like it usually with the outside shield up and the sun visor down.
Is a bit noisy but drownds out the squeaky brakes
Over all I give it an 8 out of 10.
It will be my primary helmet
Have not tried it converted to a 3/4 yet.
Will probably wait until next year here in Ohio to covert it to 3/4. As winter is starting to set in.

Digin it.

Go to http://helmetharbor.com/streethelmet...rg/opening.htm.
I saw these here at this store about 2-3 months ago and really liked it. Did not need one now but down the road I will probably get it. They did have a good price on them I want to say $180.00. Check with them.

The SO hates it she likes her Bell 3/4.
Had her try it on in the house last night and as soon as I latched the chin guard she started to freak.
She gets claustrophobic easily
