Looking at helmets the other day at the local cycle shop. The salesman was really eager to get me to try a KBC flip face helmet. He pointed out the removable/washable liner and several other features (venting, chin guard opening/closing ... etc.). What he really like was the metal latch system. He showed me the two metal pins on a Shoei Syncrotec(?) and the KBC had a larger metal latch system. Does anyone have any experience with this make/model helmet? Thanks in advance. MikeyO.

I went ahead and bought one. Very nice. You can flip it open while riding and it won't rip your head off like other flip faces. Positive opening and closing with one button. With the shield down and the vents open you can feel air moving through it. Noisier than a full face, but not as noisy as a Nolan 102 I tried.
