  1. Thanks for a great video! Subscribed! Currently looking to replace my Arai rx7 – v, I've looked through so many videos, my brain is scrambled eggs…Any suggestions are welcome. Looking for a quieter full-face helmet, space for Bluetooth device, easy visor removal and loads of airflow. I know these two cancel each other (air vents = noise) but just looking for middle ground there. Thanks! Ride safe!

  2. Hey FortNine , any way you can manage to do a review of the ruroc atlas sport? I really want that helmet to be good.

  3. Hey, i enjoy your videos a lot. Whats your opinion on shark spartan carbon??? Will you have a video review for that helmet?? And in comparison with rpha11??

  4. Every retailer out there is saying to order a size bigger on the RPHA 11, but don't. I wanted a proper fit on my helmet once I decided to buy a serious helmet, so I went against all suggestions and got a small that fit HJC size chart for my head size. Yes it was tight the first day but less than a week later it was soooo comfortable to wear and is very quiet, I think this is why there are complaints for how loud it is. After a year of riding (roughly 12k miles) I almost wish I would have ordered an XS to see if I could fit my head in it because the padding wore in and there is a slight amount of room around my head now.

    Always buy the smallest size you can fit your head into.

    CON: the Riberte graphics fade after a while. I got the black/hiviz and the yellow/green is almost white on top, which pisses me off. Helmet is freaking awesome other than that though.

  5. Hi Ryan I have a quick question, did you recomend the HJC RPHA 11 Pro Helmet only for the sport bikes? I ask because I have a Kawasaki versys 650. Thanks in advanced. ohh and other thing I like your opinion about the new HJC RPHA 70 OCTAR MC1 and the same question. Kind regards.

  6. Have you ever heard of steelbird helmets? I was wondering if you could give me your opinion on them compared to bell or shoei.

  7. Hello @fortnine, what would you recommend between the Shoei RF 1200, RPHA 11 and AGV GT Veloce or the pricier AGV Corsa? I am riding a yamaha R6, but mostly through the city and some longer rides during the weekend.

  8. I enjoy Your content quite much. Thank You for all the hard work. I do have a question, if You don't mind: Would the Bell Race Star be viable for cruising? Thank You again. Cheers!

  9. I bought the alliance GT for the head shape and to save money, but regretted my decision within months. The rubber lining at the bottom was peeling, the top comfort liner was falling apart, the base plates for the shield had to be replaced, it was hot and it was extremely loud. I went back to Arai helmets.

  11. Here's a hefty alternative to the dark alliance, that actually sports better everything (except that uber interior.) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HEHOCAK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apap_gVFh7KpdmaymC

    It comes with 2 visors, a removable neck guard, comfy interior padding, space for a com system, wind channels that actually work, very, VERY little wind noise (better than most expensive helmets I have), and the protection? Well. I fell off going about 35 when hooning around, and the cracked, but it saved my life.
    Compared to the pricey helmets I have, I actually prefer this one, believe it or not. The only grief I have is the chin strap – the reigns get in the way and push into the neck. A little DIY and boom, perfection.

  15. They should have a product that allows you to carry your helmet hands-free. Oh wait, they do but no one knows about it. I know where you can find it.

  16. Ryan, now that it's 9 months later, do you still recommend the icon alliance gt for that price range? I'm now in the market for a new helmet, preferably with a sun shield, but my pockets are shallow. Any others you recommend in that price range? Keep up the good work.

  22. There's a whole class of viruses that infect and kill bacteria – they're even called bacteriophages for that reason. Theoretically, you could keep a helmet liner or whatever sterile that way.

  23. BMW? Why do the BMW helmets never ffature on the ‘best helmet’ lists. I’m in the market for a new helmet and am considering the System 7 (or 8 – dunno – the new one)

  26. Awesome review as usual Ryan, discovered your channel by mistake a few weeks ago when shopping for backpacks. Not only i'm in Canada too, you just have a new subscriber ! I tend to always go to Revzilla when looking for gear reviews, but now you guys are a game changer !

  27. I have just seen that all the Bell helmets do not use pinlock. I live in rainy Hamburg therefore visors fog up real fast, so how are these visors compared to pinlock equipped visors?

  28. Dude… Your videos are the best. There is something to be said about informative videos in an entertaining format… I am yet to find a video of your I don't like… Trust me, I'm looking hahaha. 👌🏾👍🏾 keep up the premium work my friend… No one compares

  30. Everyone says order a size larger with the RPHA11. I’m a medium 57cm in both the IS17 and the RPHA11. Yeah the RPHA is slightly more snug but that snug reduces wind noise and frankly feels better and more safe. My RPHA11 is by no means an uncomfortable squeeze in the same size. Glad I didn’t order a size larger. Definitely go try them on.

  31. Wanna throw down some appreciation, your videos are not only informative but funny too. Bought the HJC RPHA 11 because of your strait forward info, as I live in Arizona I can vouch for this helmets excellent air flow for those 100 plus days.

  32. Virus is a clothing company, they make moisture wicking workout clothes. Solid stuff. Their application makes sense in a helmet.

  33. What is your opinion about Sharp rating? I'm looking for a new helmet and i don't know if to take into account or not the rating. I'm leaning twords 5* helmets like HJC IS-17/FG-ST and MT(really cheap for 5* rating and really good construction and comfort for the money).

    Reply

  34. I would like to know if you knew about the sharp rate of the rpha 11.. Cus it sucks
    Edit: at the time of this video of course.

    Reply

  35. Here's the objective SHARP rating (which meets and exceeds ECE) for each helmet found at sharp.dft.gov.uk
    Arai Defiant 3/5
    Icon Alliance 3/5
    Bell Race Star 5/5
    HJC RPHA 11 3/5

    Shoei RF-1200 4/5

    "the RPHA 11 Pro is essentially an RF-1200 that costs $100 less"…. If by essentially you mean the lack of Snell, one star lower SHARP rating, and side impact rated as POOR compared to Shoei's AVERAGE. Not to mention Shoei's legendary quality control.

    Actually, I really like your channel (and love motorcycles) or I wouldn't bother to comment. Anyone can mimic Shoei's design (or in Arai's case not even bother) but I think we should be very careful not to confuse features with quality/safety. I couldn't in good conscience recommend an HJC over Shoei without a serious caveat on safety.

  36. I couldn't agree more with your review, especially of the Bell Race Star. I had the first gen Star, and although it was a great helmet, the fit wasn't great and it was pretty loud. Flash forward to Gen2 and WOW, they have addressed those issues and more. The new models fit like a glove and they're quiet and pretty light. Ventilation is good too. I compare the Bell Race Star to my Shoei RF1200, but to be honest, the Bell fits better, has better visibility and ventilation. It also costs a bit less. I think I'm sticking with Bell for a while

  37. OMG, I just clicked on the Arai and it was discontinued so I was redirected to the revzilla site that has the updated model. If FortNine did this on purpose thats awesome. Very Miracle on 34th street of them. They just won me as a customer for life!!!!!

  40. Would be cool if he did helmet giveaways since most of the helmets he recommends are $500 or more and he has tons of them

    Reply

  41. The Hjc rpha11 has a 3 star rating on sharp, thats not something you recommend. I mean its great that it ventilates well and looks cool, but its maine or only function is safety, and that should be the maine criteria, yet every review and “top” helmet list never consider the safety tests…

  42. I have a Scorpion which is the quietest but also heavy with drop down sun visor . I also have a Nolan with a ridiculous drop down sun visor but is much lighter than the Scorpion . Sun visor on the Nolan was made for pinochio as it has this huge nose cutout in the visor and it makes me go crosseyed so its completely useless . Going back to my Scorpion which is quieter and has a useful sunvisor
