This might be old news but ...

Looks pretty cool! The non-on-demand version is still pricey and the paintjobs on the helmets leave a bit to be desired but these could be good ... anyone seen them in Japan? And why isn't Shoei doing this? :)

Good idea. I guess the other companies will be watching and if any good will develop their own.

Sucks cos that tech has been around for years ... and helmets would be an awesome application.

Seems Akuma helmets are available at Costco, or they are the distributors at least.
