Predator Motorcycle Helmet
I made this to Expose the NLO moto Predator motorcycle helmet
they claim is DOT AND SNELL approved, yet don't provide certificates /
I paid just over 1000,00 for this back in Late December 2011, only to get
the helmet on the 17th of March 2012. After being told it would only be 10
to 20 days MAX before i had it.
I Ordered the helmet with the following..
Removable Carbon dreadlocks, the size of the Foam dreads.
Delivery within 20 days of the date i paid $1100 for this POS. !
1: Is this snell or Dot approved...
- NO, hell no, the dreads alone wont make this legal, yet the small
vision/ visor. Foam shell is not manufactured to fit the carbon shell, they
are parts from another helmet. The straps are not re-inforced on the shell
2: does it have foam padding?
- yes, you see that at the first clip of the helmet, from Part 2 onwards i
have removed the padding, as it wiggles around and never sits still when
you are wearing the helmet...
3: How much did it cost you?
- I paid over $1100 including Delivery to Australia in Dec 2011. I was
told it would be here within 20 days. I didn't receive it until Late March
2012 Only later to find out they didn't actually send it or Make it until
early Feb 2012.
4: The Helmet Looks Bigger then normal helmets,Is it?
- Yes, its around 20% bigger at the front, giving you a bobble head look.
5: Why wont they refund you ?
- Well because I took ti for a test ride, and the Foam dreadlocks had
broken almost instantly. I found this to be a fault with the Helmet as
having exposed RAW sharp carbon resin tearing away at the foam caused the
issue, They used this against me and refused to refund me.. Ontop of that,
all the shit inside the helmet was glued in a held in place with some sort
of shellys Gap filler.. I could feel parts inside the helmet moving around,
once i took the padding out, i seen how poorly the internals was made..

Schuberth Helmet Sizing and Buying Guide
Schuberth has a history that can be defined with 3 numbers: 30/60/90.
Schuberth was founded 90 years ago in Braunschweig, Germany (they were
actually a brewery back in those days). Schuberth has been making head
protection and helmets for 60 years. The last 30 years, Schuberth has been
using aerodynamic testing and even has their own wind tunnel! Schuberth
offers a unique set of features in all of their helmets that include
Pinlock ready faceshields and lenses, 360° of reflectivity, the patented
Anti-Roll off system, and advanced wind tunnel testing that improves
aerodynamics and acoustics. The SR1 is the top of the food chain and is a
thoroughbred race helmet purpose built for the track. The S2 offers all the
creature comforts found in the C3 Pro in a more sporty, full face chassis.
The C3 Pro is the latest generation in modular helmet technology that
boasts improved aerodynamics, better fitting shape, an integrated dual-band
antenna and is 2 full decibels quieter over the predecessor. The C3 Pro W
is the women's-specific helmet that uses a softer lining material that
resists makeup and specialized cheek pads that better contour a woman's
face. Schuberth has one of the most interesting histories of any helmet
manufacturer and pioneered many firsts along the way. For those who seek
the über precise German Quality in a helmet, Schuberth is the one.
Schuberth C3 Pro Helmet Review at RevZilla.com
Schuberth C3 Pro Helmet Review
The highly anticipated Schuberth C3 Pro is here at long last, along with a
list of new features that rival the Dead Sea Scrolls. The outer shell has
been redesigned with a rear spoiler, similar to that found on the S2, using
Schuberth S.T.R.O.N.G fiber construction. The C3 was already a quiet
helmet, but the C3 Pro has shaved another 2 decibels off the noise level
for a total of 82db. The faceshield still comes Pinlock ready, with the
Pinlock insert in the box, and has turbulators at the top of the visor that
slice through air like a hot knife through butter. The newly designed
internal sun visor is now constructed of polycarbonate and now meets the
Australian standard AS1067 for clarity. The venting scheme has been
improved with a new style chin vent that better clears the faceshield, a
top vent that flows more air and more mesh in the neckroll to aid in hot
air extraction. The comfort lining has been completely revamped and now
boasts a more comfortable fit, especially for those with a more narrow head
shape. A Coolmax Thermocool treatment has been added to the lining to help
deter bacteria and odor, and keep the lining feeling cool to the touch. A
narrow fitting cheekpad option will also be available for those who need
more room. There is a new SRC System that will mate to the C3 Pro that uses
the 31" internal FM dual-band antenna that snakes around the shell for FM
radio and increased communication range. The C3 Pro Woman helmet will be
offered in a variety of fashionable colors and a plush interior that feels
softer against the face.
How to choose and fit a new motorcycle helmet
In this video Schuberth North America's Technical Communication Manger Mike
Talarico provides some tips on how to choose a new helmet as well as how to
make sure it fits properly.
Below are all 3 Steps as well as the Schuberth size chart.
Step one: Research
Make a list of features that suite the type of riding you will be doing, as
well as some must have features. Bring this list with you to your local
dealer when trying helmets on.
Some features to think about are:
Faceshild mechanism and ease of use
Integrated sun visor
Safety standards (ECE 22.05, SNELL, DOT etc.)
Comfort liner (fully removable? machine washable? moisture wicking?)
Clarity of Faceshield and Visor (are they optically correct)
Materials used in construction
Warranty (3 year, 5 year)
Step two: Measure your head
Use a soft tape measure to find the circumference of your head along your
"brow" line. Normally this is done about 1 inch about your eyebrows. Use
the chart below for Schuberth helmets:
Size Measurement (cm)
Size Measurement (in)
Step three: Try Helmets on
Try on as many helmets that meet your criteria as possible. Make your best
attempt to leave each helmet on for at least 15-20 minutes. With the helmet
on, make note of any pressure points that may develop as they will get
worse when you are on the bike. If pressure develops, try the next size up,
keeping in mind that every brand is not right for every head shape... the
next size up may be too big. Sometimes the brand you want, is not designed
for your head and it may be best to go with a different brand.
Once you have completed all three steps, you are ready to move onto the
three fit tests.
1. Use your pinky finger and press lightly between the helmet and your head
in three areas, first in the center near your forehead, second on the left
side near your temple and third on the right side near your other temple.
When doing this make note of any gaps, here you are trying to gauge how if
the helmet provides even pressure around the head.
2. Left and right movement.
Brace your neck and shoulders and move only the helmet to the left and
right. During this test, the skin on your face should move with the helmet.
If the skin on your cheeks and face is not moving, you will want to try a
3. Up and down movement.
Follow the same process as fit test step 2, bracing your neck and
shoulders, this time moving the helmet up and down. Similarly, the helmet
should move the skin on your forehead and cheeks here as well. Again, if
the skin on your face does not move with the helmet, or if the helmet moves
too freely, try on a smaller helmet.
75 MPH Motorcycle Crash Helmet Cam
READ THIS DESCRIPTION!
Riding on the beltway in a 2004 Honda CBR600F4i, Virginia side of 495 N
right before the bridge going into Maryland. July 10, 2013
At around 0:15 seconds I see the traffic building up ahead and I try to
slow down to the flow of traffic ahead of me, and due to the fact that this
is my FIRST TIME riding my new CBR600F4i, I, being used to my old 2008
Kawasaki Ninja 250R, squeeze the front brake as I normally would on my
Ninja, and my front wheel locks up due to the fact that the two bikes have
very different braking power (the CBR600 being way more powerful due to the
fact that it has a 600cc engine rather than a 250cc like the one on the
Ninja). Just like a slow car has shitty brakes and a Lamborghini has nice
ceramic brakes to allow it to stop in just a couple seconds from really
high speeds, bikes like the CBR and Ninja work the same way.
As for the bike, it was equipped with some decent frame sliders (plastic
piece on the side of the bike that pops out to prevent damage to the body
of the bike in case of a drop) and so the bike doesn't have too much
damage, but the right side mirror, front brake lever, and rear brake pedal
all fell off the bike during the crash. The right side frame slider
eventually came off the bike, but by the time it was destroyed, the bike
had already slowed down quite a deal, so the damage to the bike wasn't
exorbitant, in fact, I thought the damage was so minimal that I was going
to continue my ride, but then I noticed that both brakes had fallen off the
bike and would definitely not want to ride my bike without brakes, despite
the fact that braking (and my stupid negligence to practice braking in a
parking lot on my new bike) caused my crash :)
I was all suited up in my expensive $900 gear and don't regret spending a
single cent of it because I know for a fact that it saved my life and I am
extremely thankful for that.
Kudos goes out to the people nice enough to stop for me on the side of the
road to ask me if I was okay (I only "suffered" an extremely mild bruise to
my hip, which wasnt really anything at all) while I waited for a tow truck
to come (took two hours for the tow truck to get there, and another 30
minutes for the truck to strap in my bike, yes, I waited in the shoulder on
the beltway in the 90 degree heat just watching cars whizz by me for two
hours, but that wasn't exactly a big deal at that time). The man behind me
that stopped (as seen in the video) was deaf and could not speak either and
stopped on the shoulder to see if I was okay. It took me a second to
realize that he couldn't talk or hear me but, I gave him a thumbs up and
said I was okay. I am extremely fortunate he was paying attention behind
the wheel of his Mazda RX-8 and wasn't texting or doing something else,
because otherwise he most definitely would have run me over. Also if you
see the video in slow motion, it is noticeable that he pulls into the
shoulder to avoid hitting me. If I wasn't in the left lane, who knows what
would have happened.
I have definitely learned a lot from this experience and will definitely
continue to ride my motorcycle despite the obvious risks involved. Riding a
motorcycle is a lot of fun and will continue to be a lot of fun for me.
Most motorcyclists have told me that you will drop your bike no matter how
seasoned of a motorcyclist you are, and I guess that is true. I was pretty
confident in my skills on my bike, but there is always more to learn.
I have definitely taken from this that it is imperative to wear your gear
no matter how hot the weather is. I am fortunate that I took the decision
to wear my leather jacket despite of the 90 degree inferno. I remember
negotiating the risks in my head and almost deciding not to wear my jacket
because it was too hot. Also, no, normal jeans would not have protected me
if I went down like this and I am glad I spent the extra money on padded
I was wearing:
ECE 22.05/DOT Polycarbonate Shelled Helmet
Perforated Leather Jacket with armored padding at the shoulders, elbows,
Kevlar Jeans with armored padding at the knees
Leather Gloves with hard protection on the knuckles and rubber pads on the
Recorded with a Drift HD720 Action Camera (got a little messed up in the
crash but only scratches, so I get to keep filming for YouTube!)
