    It's not a helmet for high speed hooning by any means but then no open
    face style helmet is.

    I suspect it's no less safe than the average open face helmet.

    And remember the same concerns were voiced when the flip open full face
    helmets were brought in and I know a few people who wear those now.

    As Gerry mentions... it's the locking system that's the issue (and there
    were problems with at least one of the full face flip helmets in that
    area). As long as the locking system is strong enough it'll be fine.

    Looks like a neat invention and I'm sure there is a market for it - just
    the same as O/F flip-up helmets.

    Given that it was inspired by 5 months riding a motorcycle in Indonesia.
    Google images 'Indonesian road' - for every picture 've seen a similar
    road in Australia - in fact picture #1 (Subah) reminds me of the road I
    took to BT's farmette ;-)

    The market could be students & office workers that can't easily store
    their kit without it getting knocked about, riding low power motorcycles
    and scooters, and possibly helmet rentals.
