MIB M17 helmet is another M.I.B lineup of half face motorcycle helmets for city bikers. MIB M17 helmet is suitable for beginners or motorcycle learners as it is a basic version with the lowest price. However it also encompass "retro" style with modern styling cues that are pleasing to the eye.
As this is the basic essential version, the small brow air vents at the top of the helmet are merely for styling purposes. You can open or close the air vent shutter.
Double contour unique design
MIB M17 helmet is fitted with a wide view visor. The motorcycle rider's peripheral vision is unobstructed when looking straight ahead. However the MIB M17 helmet visor is slightly shorter. When MIB M17 helmet visor is fully closed it can only reach the rider's mouth instead of the chin.
Advantage of wearing a open-face helmet is the unlimited forward visibility provided by the design. Better peripheral vision means more safety for the rider.
MIB M17 helmet side plates has been outfitted with screws. This is a big let down when the fact that all new motorcycle helmets are equipped without side plates. Nowadays it is truly rare to see a motorcycle helmet fitted with side pods with screws. It is definitely puzzling to think that the manufacturer transplant this feature straight from the past. Maybe one of the reason is low cost production.
Be forewarned that after prolonged periods of use, when the screws are loose you have to keep the face shield from dropping when you want it to be raised. Another disadvantage is that it does not have the four detents of the visor rotation without side plates. Which means when you move the visor up or down, it will stay in the fixed four position: fully opened, 3/4 opened, 1/4 opened and fully closed.
As with most of the motorcycle helmets in the market, MIB M17 helmet is made of ABS shell construction not fiberglass-based. However since it has passed stringent Singapore Safety Standards SS 9: 1992, it should provide the same level of protection as those made of fiberglass composite material.
You will ride with a peace of mind knowing that MIB M17 motorcycle helmet has attained the "PSB TEST" label which is regulated by Singapore Traffic Police. However bear in mind that by wearing a PSB approved helmet, it does not mean that it will protect you from all risks and injuries. No motorcycle helmet can guarantee complete safety and protect the rider from all possible impacts, so please ride safely.
