    So, since I'm looking for a new helmet and saw the new OGK Minnaar I looked around and saw the new offering from O'neal.
    Looks pretty good in my opinion. Pricing is in the lower range and the helmet was designed to use it with a neck brace.
    Has any monkey seen one in real life?

    Nothing on the website, I'm waiting to hear back regarding availability. Cool looking for sure, but it's the fit that matters most to me. I love my THE Carbon helmet but I am due for a new one in 2011.

    Doesn't say any where if its Leatt compatable, just wandering because of the shape on the rear neck area.

    My guess it that it will be compatible, as Leatt and O'Neal have joined up, so to speak. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but Leatt is sold under O'Neal now.

    Quote from the german site:
    "Der Hinterkopfbereich wurde durch die Unterstützung von Neck Braces gestaltet"

    The rear of the helmet is designed to work well with a neck brace.

    Pricing in euro 130€ = 180USD

    Not bad in my opinion...
    Hopefully it fits nicely. Finally a helmet with simple graphics, motostyle, neck brace compatibility and reasonable pricing:thumb:

    Anyone notice it and the Kabuto have the exact same molding where the google strap lies. Mouth port on the Kabuto is different and the side vents are as well. But then you look and the molding at the base in the back steps down on both in the same spot.

    Such a rip off of the Troy Lee Designs D3... the front vent is near identical and the trim around the goggle area is VERY similar to the d3

    Its a helmet that is suppose to protect our "brains" who cares if it looks like another helmet. If it was square you would be rippin on it for not being aero enough... So relax max, in the end it still protects our noodle.

    Not digging the chipmunk cheeks in this pic:


    Question though...how come nobody is saying what the Kabuto and Airtech are rated at? ASTM or not?
