“ Type: Helmets „
I have now completed a good few miles using the AC-10 Stinger. Generally a very comfortable helmet and my comments are mainly positive but for one major problem, the flipping visor. The shape and colour works very well. Classic flame/fire stripes create a striking and very acceptable paint job. On first wearing the AC-10 Stinger lid pushing past the chin cover can be an uncomfortable experience. There are sharp edges that scrape the temples. These can cause problems when taking the helmet off also. Once on the AC-10 Stinger helmet is very comfortable with removable side supports that look as if they can be washed, a great innovation. A major problem with the AC-10 is the flipping visor. At high speeds when looking over the left or right shoulder the visor flips up and can take the uwary rider off guard for a second in the least but in the worst situation can almost take your head off. In terms of comfort once the helmet is on I can give the AC-10 Stinger a 8/10. My only caveat being the sharp edges when putting the helmet on. For visibility a good 9/10 and paint job 9/10. Value for money without a doubt but please HJC tighten up the hinges on that visor before someone takes you all the way to the courts as a direct cause of an accident.
