No problems at all. Ordered online 2/5/2020 and it arrived yesterday (2/18/2020). Mine shipped out of Germany via DHL and was handed over to USPS for delivery. Tracking with both carriers sucks compared to FedEx international, but it arrived in their estimated 2 week timeframe. Paid $575 shipped for a helmet that costs $799 in the US. (Neotec 2 Splicer TC-6)
Don't know what size you are looking for, but FC Moto is showing stock in most sizes - $286 USD Must be a closeout/discontinued, even dennis kirk is selling them for about 1/2 retail right nowMotorgearstore.com - I went their site today and saw the RPHA 90 was on sale for $372 CAD - GREAT price. I put a Hi Viz yellow one in my cart and asked via the chat thing about the cheek pads. Guy said the helmet was out of stock, they were updating the site and asked if I wanted a different colour. I said sure, white. After a couple of minutes he said that's out of stock, too, and offered me an RPHA 70 in white - full-face, not flip-up and more expensive. Maybe I'll look at it again sometime, but not impressed.
Glad it worked out for you Chuck.
Thanks Chuck. Medium is my size, but learned from my current RPHA-Max that I need the cheek pads for a large. Yes, thanks for the link. I have been browsing their site quite often. Looks like they have a sale on now. Shipping is $30 CAD, but even at that I save $100+.
I picked up on a RPHA 90 in black last night on my way home from work. Transferred my comm system to it last night, installed the pinlock and ready to ride. Unfortunately today's snow might mean it's a few days before I get a chance to ride it.Hmmm...I want the RPHA 90 Yellow in an XL. I'll have to check tomorrow.
Amen about trying different helmets. But a warning about buying slightly tight if it’s a Schuberth. The darn thing hasn’t loosened in the slightest in my five years of owning it. I loved every cheap HJC 3/4 I owned, and usually replaced them after a few years when the foam had compressed so much that they started feeling loose. In contrast I would love a good excuse to throw away that vise on my head called Schuberth C3 but it’s still like new.I would love to tell everyone what my favorite helmet is and that everyone should buy one.
Doesn't matter. FIT is the first most important thing. There are two things to FIT. One is the correct FIT. Meaning it probably feels too tight when new and especially so on your cheeks. Two is comfort FIT. If you get sore spots anywhere from a helmet, even wearing one 10 hours without removing it, there are better fitting options for you.
Then you get into the other stuff like noise, internal visor, Snell or not, modular or not, etc. There is a difference in helmets based on price, but it isn't everything.
The most overlooked problem concerning noise is simply the way your windshield works. Naked bikes with no screen can be more noisy, but also a lot smoother! Turbulence creates noise and assaults your helmet. Wears you down. A really good windshield/deflector package can make a noisy helmet seem ok! But no helmet, even with ear plugs, will be quiet with a bad windshield when at speed.
The number one mistake made by helmet buyers, in my opinion, is not going somewhere that has a lot of helmets in stock and trying them on. A bunch of them, even those you might think you are not interested in. You will know the one when you try it on!
We've had a fair amount of snow since I got it so I don't have any riding report.
