Shape and materials

The Bonanza’s interior padding is shaped as a Round Oval and  features a custom-shaped EPS safety shell and a hand-stitched liner, with moisture-wicking Lycra panels and foam padding for breathability and comfort.  The overall feel is really comfortable and the liner feels real good.


Ventilation and Noise

Ventilation is what we can expect from any open face helmet. Just massive amounts of air hitting our face. No top vent so that is a minus as there is literally zero control on how much air we get.

There is less noise as in most open face since the aerodynamics are quite good and the padding absorbs a lot of noise.

Things I liked

  • Huge range of colors and graphics.
  • Prices very low for the quality of build and looks.

Things I don’t like

  • Shield sells separately.
  • No top vent.

Conclusion

This superlight helmet will delight both cruiser and cafe racer rides alike, with its only 2.43lbs, it is very comfortable and for the price, we can hardly think of any better open face helmet.. It uses Double D rings chin strap system.
