What’s good? A majority of my riding was commuting 24 miles in and out of London, riding either a Honda Dominator or a BMW R100R.
I would make this journey throughout the year, rain or shine. Visibility is very important in London traffic and the Arai SZ/F offers the best.
In the depths of winter it gives good protection from the weather and superb venting on those hot summer days, being able to open the visor completely allowing you to enjoy the breeze.
Very comfortable and has a washable lining.
What’s not? Ratchets on the visor eventually wear and need replacing. But then again don’t they all after extensive use?
