A FULL FACE HELMET AT UNDER $250?
Yes, helmet manufacturer Biltwell did it. The Lane Splitter is a full-face helmet with an aggressive look, not unlike that of the Star Wars storm troopers.
This helmet is constructed around an ABS outshell which ranks it in the lightweight category, without compromising safety.
Weight is often a concern with full-face helmets, but it shouldn’t be a problem with this one, even if you don’t have Hulk Hogan’s neck muscles.
The liner dissipates impact load while increasing the strength of the structure: it fits securely around your head.
Among other noteworthy features, its front and side vents which bring a good airflow inside. People love this.
Can the Lane Splitter be fitted with a bluetooth comm system? Yes. It has recesses inside that accept some of the bluetooth aftermarket products.
Field of view: as you can see in the photo, the shield is wide enough to enable you to have full peripheral vision. The shield is made in polycarbonate, with anti-scratch and anti-fog treatments.
Is the liner replaceable? Yes.
Overall, a great full-face at the price of a designer open-face helmet.
Come to the store to try it on: better than buying online because you are sure of the fit. All helmets don’t fit all heads. You have to try them on.
