Passionate bikers know how important it is to have a good and comfortable helmet for protection. The Kabuto Ibuki Cruiser Motorcycle Helmet is a modular helmet that’s no heavier than a full face helmet. This is the company’s first flip-up helmet and it features an advanced ACT EVO R composite shell technology, a dual density EPS liner, Wake Stabilizer and a detachable chin curtain. The Max Vision PINLOCK fog free shield provides a fantastic field of view that gives you the ‘’open’’ feel even when the shield is closed.
The Kabuto Ibuki Modular Cruiser Motorcycle Helmet has a shell that’s made from hyper glass fiber and high-strength organic fiber so it’s lightweight and the buffeting is reduced thanks to the wake stabilizer. The internal sunshade and COOLMAX interior provide functionality and comfort even during hot summer days while the reflective elements on the back of the helmet keep you safe during night rides. The styling of the helmet is typical and classic for flip-up helmets and it’s finished with a thick feeling clearcoat.
Since the Kabuto Ibuki Helmet promotes the ventilation system as ‘’Ibuki’’ is Japanese for ‘’breath’’. There’s an upper ventilation system and a lower ventilation system. The upper ventilation system features two large horizontal vents, one in the front and one in the rear. The inside of the helmet is designed with intake ports and open channels in the EPS so there’s no blocking by the liner material. The upper vents provide great airflow and even when all the vents are open, the noise levels don’t get as loud as with some other helmets.
As for the build quality, the Kabuto Ibuki helmet ranks high up and is considered premium. The interior is thickly padded to increase comfort and reduce the noise while the ventilation system provides good air flow. The design is also very good and the helmet is available in pearl white, matte black, metallic black, aluminum silver and yellow. The rotating flip-up visor will stay firmly in place when it’s raised to the upper position while you’re refueling or talking. The removable 2.4mm thick face shield is very functional as it can be open and rested on the friction holding tab.
