!McCoy Motorsports! 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

Here is what I have so far!

The AC-12 and the RKT-101 carbon are very similar but not the same.



SAME ...

- They both use the same 4X4 carbon fiber weave which is the best available.

- They both use the same EPS.

- They both use the HJ-09 system.



Different ...

- The RKT-101 has a far superior, North American head form fit ... they AC-12 was based off a European head form.

- The RKT-101 has far superior ventilation ... a perfect integration of all aspect working together, from the position and size of the front vents and rear spoiler, to the perfect alignment of all ventilation holes from outside through to the internal headspace. You cannot see clean through the vent holes on the AC-12, on the RKT-101 ... it's obvious.

- The RKT-101"MTS" interior combines Aquatrans, Bioceramic technology, and open cell technology.

- The RKT-101 is aerodynamically superior with far less drag and turbulence, causing it to actually feel lighter as you get up to speed ... just take a look at all the ridges across the top of the AC-12, these create significant turbulence at the slightes head turn. PLUS, our rear spoiler actually works.
