Need Helmet Suggestions

13 posts in this topic

I am thinking of upgrading to an actual Snowmobile helmet. I used my SHoei Motorcycle I had and it worked great when it was -25 out compared to the other guys that had snowmobile helmet. Just didn't feel the greatest with the Balaclava on. I would like to keep it under $150. Do I want a modular? I know Skidoo makes the Modular2 that is good but spendy. Are the other brand Modulars any good? I seen DK had a Z1R Phantom helemt with an electric shield for around $140. Are these any good? I haven't owned a sled since 95 and just picked one up mostly for ice fishing but want to do some riding also.

I'd definitely consider a modular. They're great for chatting on the trail and you don't feel so claustrophobic.

I am newbie, but used my HJC modular with the "fighter mask" and it worked GREAT! I think I saw the basic or at least similar same thing at the big online or MN bike/sled supplier, on clearance for about $100. I am going to get another. My wife didn't like the mask part, but it sure kept the fog/breathe from going up to the mask. It is not the best one out there, but comfy, easy to use, and not foggy.

Do you happen to have a model number for the HJC? I have heard others are happy with their HJC and am looking at them a little closer.

I bought a HJC AC-11 this year and have been really happy with it, i got it on e Bay new for less than 100 shipped, comes with the double shield and a breath box, i have had zero fogging issues. It is a carbon fiber one so it is a bit lighter. I also have a HJC hsolist-14 that I have used for a few years, that has been a real good helmet also, i had some fogging issues with this one when real cold out, even with the breath box and double shield, i am going to put a heated shield on it this year. I looked around forever for the best price on helmets, found a guy on e bay with good prices and service, if interested pm me and i will send you a link to his store.

I don't think we can PM unless we are staff. I think I want a Modular but if you can tell me his store name or something I would appreciate it. I would like to see if he has any of them.

Thanks for the info. He has some nice prices on the Modular 2. I might have to rethink this now.

FYI, PMs are not enabled on the forums, regardless if you are staff or not.

I have a Fulmer Modus SNM1 modular helmet that I got from L&M Fleet a couple of years ago. It was on sale at the time for $130. Not even close to being top of the line, not even a "name brand" for snowmobile helmets, but it fits well and the price was right.

HJC is much better than paying for Name Brand helmets like Polaris or Kitty Kat.

I have an HJC hsolist-13 I think and I love it. My wife does too.

Great helmet at a cheaper price.

Heated shields are a must and are much cheaper than the name brand ones too.

I picked up a nice Mossi modular helmet at Dennis Kirk last night. It was on clearance, almost have price. Right around $70-$80.

Fits nice! I like how the front flips all the way up. The little riding I did last night after getting home, it did not fog up at all. I figured for that price, I would give it a try.

    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
    • So you prefer the status quo bobby? Wars in the middle east to to the tune of Billions or Trillions, corrupt politicians everywhere, corporations buying laws, favors and tax perks that pocket them money. Or do you prefer to save up for another gov bailout and just let it all slide because there is nothing we can do.
