I recently purchased this open ended helmet from mcload road Lahore. It feels awesome. Its a unique thing. Whoever see this helmet, praise its design or asks about it.
I hardly see any person in Pakistan wearing this kind of helmet although this helmet design is very popular in the whole world. (did u remember dhoom 3). In every ad of motor bike every movie involving motor bike. Whole chine, Malaisia, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Where ever i see, I observe this kind of helmet.
Now lets talk about its pros and cons
1. The biggest advantage is very wide and big visor. The is no obstruction in your vision. Your chin is free.
2. You feel that you aren't wearing anything because view is so big and wide
3. It is a blessing for a person with glasses like me. It is very hard to remove and wear glasses every time for wearing helmet
4. Sound proof design. It totally cuts you off from surrounding noise of rickshaws etc.
1. The only biggest disadvantage is that you cannot hang it any where on the bike and there is no way to secure it by using wire lock.
