modular helmet question

Any one have experience with a modular helmet during an accident? What make, model etc and how did it perform? Currently considering a shoei multitek. I have been using a kbc ffr(modular) for the last couple of years, damaged it from a drop of approx 2 feet and need to replace it. I wasn't too impressed how easily it was damaged.....made me wonder how it would perform for it's intended purpose. On the short list is the multitek and if I don't go with the modular then it'll be the shoei fr1000. Thanks for any info. Dave

I don't have experience with that type of lid, but the Multitec has to pass DOT standards just like every other helmet. The KBC you damaged was more likely the result of KBC's build quality than the fact that it was a flip-up style. I have read, however that some manufacturers recommend replacing your helmet after any type of drop due to the fact that it will alter the internal foam. I'm sure that's their way of covering their ass though.
