Mac - as I said I'm not going to do comparisons with other helmets at this point as I just dont want to get dragged into another "x is better than y" argument - especially since we know the MR is only a prototype. There'll be plenty of time for that when the production version is ready.

Gary - Those are the sort of things I've pointed out to MR which they're in the process of "putting right" (and to be fair Bryan had highlighed himslef also) - so I'm expecting the final version to be a further improvement.

Cheers

SWC - yes I can only presume they did that as there's no "gap" present (between where the face and front of dome would be on a 2-part ABS), so needed to fill it with something.

I did point that out to Bryan, so it may be something that they change (if they can) - however imo its not a biggie as the brow does seem to sit correctly and I'm therefore wondering if its one of the compromises they've had to make given the single-piece fiberglass design used.

Size wise I'd say its more in line with an SDS than the other Stormy helmets I have. I dont have any calipers but tear edge to tear edge over the nose was the same as the SDS, and about 5mm larger than my Gino/CRProps - Not saying whats right or wrong as I dont want to get involved in another one of "those" discussions :violent

Thanks for the info, Jez.

The small "gap" between the faceplate and the front of the dome on the "originals" is covered by the rubber brow. But you're right; it's no biggie at all and it's only a proto.

It's a nice interpretation of a TK helmet (the overall looks are great IMO) and the majority of people will love it.

Jez,

No worries; when it does cut final and if you want someone else to take the heat, just send me the photos and I'll do the comparison! :toothy

I dunno... I just saw unusual pictures of the MR helmet and thought I'd post here for comments. Or... have those pictures been shown before and I just haven't seen them?
