NEW Joe Rocket Carbon Helmet + REVIEW ...

I just picked up one of these for myself and wanted to get it posted up.....

Our JR rep had been raving about the Rocket helmets (made by HJC) and convinced me to try out one of the new carbon models.. They retail for $399.99....

I haven't ridden in the helmet yet due to the winter but my first impression is PRETTY damn GOOD! The liner is pretty good for this price range..

Scale of 1 - 10 I'd rate the liner a 7.5 .... Which is pretty DAMN GOOD!

The carbon is nearly flawless.. Vents well placed.. I'm told the breath guard isn't needed that it can be taken out

A cool feature is that there is a VISOR lock to keep it closed WHEN it's supposed to be...

They ALSO come standard with ROCKET helmet bag !!!!! wOOt

Joe Rocket RKT101 Carbon Fiber Helmet. These incredible new helmets just came in and HALF our staff bought up the first batch. For the features and price you cannot beat this HELMET! Chec out the $40 Joe Rocket helmet bag (shown in the extra pictures) that comes with each helmet purchased!

I can't wait for an update to this review after you have ridden with it. I would love to know how quiet it is. I have an HJC helmet right now that has to go bye-bye this season... the wind noise is horrible in it. On longer rides, even nice earplugs don't keep my ears from ringing.
