Well at least us Schuberth S2 owners can breathe safely! :slight_smile:

And Arai and few others.

But if toxic substance breath in is not a problem than fair enough :slight_smile:

Stop sniffing helmets weirdos.

I’d be more worried about the fumes from the black smoke belching trucks on the road than a few VOCs in the visor.

what a load of bollocks!

bikes are dangerous full stop, the fumes we breathe in while riding probably do far far more damage…**** liek this pisses me off, fucking scaremongering.
