What’s good?
Fit, quality, ventilation, looks and visor mechanism are all superb, but most of all the crash protection is brilliant. I didn’t go down hard on my head in this crash, I just grazed my head on the track towards the end of the accident, but I had no injuries at all. After consulting the Arai service technicians at Thruxton, the BSB scrutineers deemed the damage to be minor and allowed me to race in it.

What’s not?
For me, it’s perfect, I’m just miffed I’ve ruined my nice paintjob!
