Caberg Helmets

Does anyone own a Caberg Justissimo (flip-up) helmet? Do you like it?

I have had one for several months now and like it a lot. It does have some wind noise but I wear earbud-earplugs so it is not that bad. It is not as noisy as the HJC flip up I had. Nice qualiy workmanship also. Don

Thanks for the input. I've always worn full face helmets (Arai or Shoei) but the convenience of a flip up is growing on me. I think I'll give Caberg a try. I really like the inner dark shield!

I have one in the dark metalic black. It's a fair helmet with better looks than most flip ups. I replaced a Nolan N100 and I would say it's about the same build quality. For me the built in sun visor sets the helmet apart from anything else in the same price bracket. I also agree it's on the noisey side, but I also wear ear plugs so that's not an issue. I do think that some of the materials used on the chin strap and latch let the helmet down as far as quality goes. they feel a little cheap. the latch can be a little fiddly. Over all, lots of bang for the buck and a damn fine looking helmet.
