The D2 Open Face is a new lid aimed primarily at 4X racers, dirt jumpers, street riders and freeriders who want more vision than that of a full face helmet and also extra protection over a regular lid. It’s based on the full face design and this retro-styled helmet offers a super comfy fit with good ear space and a soft padded lining that can be removed and washed when it becomes too stinky. The push buckle chin strap is simple to use even while wearing gloves. We’d be worried about our teeth, though, and at this price would prefer the all-round protection of a full-face. Great for showboaters and Star Wars fans then, but not a realistic choice for most folk.
