Like most helmets of this type, the Instinct has a full in-mould harder outer shell and some neat looking carbon stickers on the back. The clip-on visor is rattle free and is neatly shaped to help the airflow into the front mouth ports. Airflow is also aided by top grooving inside and massive exhaust ports on the rear.
