Product Description

NOVA Retro Classic Motorcycle Helmet Open Face

Introducing the most enduring line up of NOVA motorcycle helmets. NOVA Retro Classic helmet has been around the market for several years and it is unusally well loved by many ardent fans. It is quite surprising that with no high tech mambo jumbo, it has withstand the test of time and garnered many loyal motorcycle riders with its simple and elegant design. However there are some hidden glitches that you might be unaware of.

NOVA DOT Retro Classic Air Ventilation System

There is a pair of huge frontal air vents just above the forehead. You can pull the air vent sliding lever up to close or push down to open. As NOVA Retro Classic helmet has been around for several years, its design has been obsolete without modern dual air ventilation intake vent. It is exceedingly noisy with the wind whistling across your ears when you are riding down the expressway. This helmet is only good for riding in town but not for riding in high speed.

NOVA DOT Retro Classic Motorcycle Helmet Visor

NOVA Retro Classic helmet has a wide visor which is absolutely crystal clear. Advantage of wearing a open-face helmet is the unlimited forward visibility that offers a big, wide view of the road. Better peripheral vision means more safety for the rider. Unlike EVO RS 959 helmet that has narrower visor openings which means the rider have to turn his head much farther to see oncoming traffic.

NOVA DOT Retro Classic Visor Rotation Mechanism

NOVA Retro Classic helmet visor rotation mechanism is truly a sore sticking point. The friction mechanism that holds the visor has been outfitted with screws is like a time bomb waiting to detonate.  However you can't blame it as this model has been produced before friction-free visor mechanism has been invented.

Why visor side pods without screws are better?

NOVA Retro Classic helmet face shield is held with friction via the screws on the side pods. Be aware that after extensive periods of wearing, the screws will become loose and you have to keep the face shield from dropping down when you want it to be raised. When you raised or lowered the visor, it is flimsy unlike those that are equipped without screws.

Advantages of visor side plates without screws

Helmet visor without screws has a firm feel and the channel holders on either side do a good job at keeping the shield firm and secured when it's raised or lowered. It has also four detents. 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.

You should know by now that all new models of motorcycle helmets are using friction-free visor mechanism. It is truly bewildering for NOVA manufacturer not to upgrade this feature. The only reason islow cost production but it should not be an excuse not to innovate. For whatever reason it maybe, try it at your own risk, you have been forewarned.

NOVA DOT Retro Classic Shell Construction

NOVA Retro Classic helmet is made of ABS shell construction not fiberglass-based. However since it has passed stringent Singapore Safety Standards SS 9: 1992 and also DOT approved, it should provide the same level of protection as those made of fiberglass composite material.

NOVA DOT Retro Classic Helmet Safety Standard

NOVA Retro Classic helmet has meet DOT (Department of Transport) USA safety standards and has attained the "PSB TEST" label which is regulated by Singapore Traffic Police. However no motorcycle helmet can guarantee complete safety and protect the rider from all possible impacts and accidents. Motorcycle helmets bearing official safety approvals offer a reasonable protection to the motorcyclist, it does not mean that by wearing a PSB approved helmet will protect you from all risks and injuries, so please ride safely.

NOVA DOT Retro Classic Helmet Removable Lining

NOVA Retro Classic helmet consist of separate pieces; cheek padding and a one piece liner which are removable and washable.  There are mesh lining wrapping on either side of the cushion and at the forehead that keeps your head cool and comfortable.

The chin strap is attached using the tried-and-true double "D-ring" closure system.  uses an effective double D-ring closure system and there's a velcro provided to secure the loose end of the strap when riding.  Nevertheless overall quality of the lining pales in comparsion with EVO RS 959.
