Review: 100% Aircraft Helmet

Finally got a lot of riding with my 100% aircraft helmet, and thought I would do a review.
This is the new helmet from 100%, the Aircraft. Claimed to be the most ventilated helmet on the market. This helmet is litteret with vents (25 vents actually), uses aerospace carbon and the air-intake ports at the mouth are huge, this, coupled with its low weight (1006 grams) made me go for this model. And looks like 100% vent all in, even the d-buckle is made out of titanium to keep the weight low. Only drawback; its also one of the most expensive helmets out there. So is it worth the money? Take a look:

The Aircraft helmet features an aerospace Carbon/Kevlar composite shell, and packed with 25 vents.

This helmet is just beautiful, pics does not make the architecture justice. Here you see the rear exhaust ports.

I'm not a fan of the d-buckle system, its okay, but I would have preferred a different system, like, say a magnetic system. Btw the D-buckle is made out of titanium, hell, even the hardware is made out of alu.

The air-intake at the mouth is huge. And one of the selling points for me.

Ive been using this helmet on extremely hot days in the bikepark, and its surprisingly cool and comfortable considering its a fullface helmet. The mouth port is big, and takes in a lot of air, and I really like that. The helmet is lightweight and non-intrusive with my Leatt Brace. You don't think about the helmet, and that's awesome.

This is definitely a helmet I would recommend, Its a bit more expensive, but worth it imo.

-Use it for sessions as well
-Huge air-intake at the mouth

The Bad:
-Im not a fan of the d-buckle system

Score: 5/6
