Anyone got a Caberg Justissimo GT Helmet ? I'm looking for a flip-up type, and this was the make I used during my DAS. I saw this one which is well within my budget.

Meant to be good helmets mate... Did it feel ok when you were wearing it?


Have a look at this to make sure it ticks all the right boxes

Only negative I have heard is that the cushioning inside the helmet can bed in a little too quickly and leave you with a loose helmet..... Saying that though, I have also heard the exact opposite.. :D


If it fits you properly mate, I think it's a good choice!!

hi there i use one and no major issues with it . Not too bad on the sound side of thinsd but i think over time the neck cushion does get a bit softer so it has started to get a bit noiser ..

Main reason was as mentioned internal sun visor are brilliant ...

and seeing it has the internal cushioning already set for intercom system if you wanted to add one later its easier than a normal helmet ( i dont use the gt bluetooth one though as for its price it was not worth it imo)..


does get a bit misty in the wet i found but just open the visor a bit and thats sorted ( this is at slow speeds @ high speeds with front vent open its fine )


the chinstrap connection can get a bit fiddly with gloves on but i only find it hard because i use two different helmets ( both caberg ) with different methods of doing up so i always think its the other one :)


Hope this helps

what id you budget, if you can afford i would get the shoei multitech

 

Any reasons why? They look similar, but the Shoei is more expensive. Everything is a first for me at the moment, first bike, first helmet etc., I just want to make sure I spend wisely. :wink:


Thanks

I'd agree with Phil, but that's because I have the Shoei Multitec. It doesn't look that different weight-wise on paper, but try it on and there's just no contest. If you're going to be making extended journeys I would suggest spending the extra. I originally picked the Jutissimo GT before actually going to try it on, ended up getting the Multitec as it was just so much more comfortable - we all have different shaped heads though, so it's what's most comfortable that should be important.


I also wanted a plain black helmet, and the Jutissimo GT look a little too... er... Power Ranger.


I'd heard that the internal visor gets misted up in the winter, and that's the time when I figured I'd need it most. In the summer I'd just have a dark visor and carry a clear one. I just carry the other with me now, and it's fine.


One thing I would add though, is pinlock are not homologated for afterdark. I use it for now, but when it gets too scratched I think I'll switch to a fog city. Race pinlock deforms seal at top and lets rain in, so the race pinlock is not the best designed, stick with the standard.

I was told when buying it, that about 90% of the Police wear these.


It's quieter than travelling in my land rover at equivalent speeds too!

 

yes and its becauise that most do not get the option of what helmet they would like so i was told by my bikesafe instructors :shock: they used to be given the choice of shoei caberg and another but now its just Caberg but as i said it is a good helmet ....


must admit never had the internal visor mist up :?:

and wore it all throughout last winter ......

i did have my doubts at first as what i saw strange was the old style Justiimo had the gold sticker on it but the new style gt does not but i do remember seeing a test video somewhere of the abuse the new style got put through ( will see if i can find it ) and it wisthstood all the same as the old style helmet

they give those gold stickers out in corn flake boxes now :lol:


it would be good if someone printed the results of the tests and stuck a database up and you can then search for the lid you want....


and i know sharp did a test but that was bollocks....i mean shoei xr1000 getting 3 stars and some shitty ten bob lid getting 5..... :lol:
