Is Airoh safe?
Yep, it might be a budget helmet, but Airoh has definitely done something very right with the Valor to score maximum marks by SHARP. That means the Airoh Valor is both ECE tested/certified – which is a pretty arduous test to pass in its own right – and has maxed out the SHARP safety test.
Do Airoh helmets meet Australian standards?
All Airoh helmets are ECE (European) approved. Previously only helmets with Australian Standard approval were allowed to be worn in Australia, however the rules have recently been changed to allow ECE helmets.
Is the AIROH j106 helmet any good?
The J106 is very light, with a thin thermoplastic shell that feels quite different from other motorcycle helmets. It’s finished to a good standard but it’s a bit quirky and the internal shape, fit and sizing is unique. Airoh motorcycle helmets are different, there’s no doubt about that.
What do you think about the j-106?
From “J.C.” (May 2014): “I also love my J-106. I totally agree with your comments about it being rather short front to back – my chin does touch the front when riding with the chin piece attached. However, I do have a couple of issues with mine that almost ruin the experience for me. Firstly, the chin bar is much wider than the helmet.
What would happen if you wore a j-106 without earplugs?
Contrary to your findings my J-106 has a severe wind howl at any speeds above 30 mph. I’m not a stranger to component or convertible helmets, having owned several, but this is something else. I really think that without earplugs I would suffer permanent hearing damage almost immediately.
