Bombi Modular Helmet question?

Postby SuZQ213 » February 24th, 2006, 10:07 am

Well, I guess my shield falling apart in my hand got Sweet Pea to thinking about getting me a new helmet (wahoo! finally). My kitty dealer has a Bombi Modular and he loves it. I've always been afraid to drop $400 or so on a helmet that might not work for me -- here's my main concern: My nose isn't all that big -- when I tried on the helmet back when they first came out, the mouth/nose piece didn't seem to conform to my face well... I felt like my breath would be coming out through the space in the nosepiece. Have they fixed this in the past several years or is there something I can do to make it fit? Also, do they make electric shields for them? Heck, while I'm asking questions, where did Lacy get that battery pack from for his shield? That's the shizz!!!

Thanks guys (and girls)!

My bud just bought a Bombi Modular Helmet for his wife at Trackside in Eagle River for $220. BTW She loves it. Some people don't though. My brother in law has one and won't wear it. He says he feels claustrophobic.....

I paid $165 for my wifes HJC CL-14. Love's it and it doesn't fog as long as you have the air deflecter over the nose adjusted correctly. (Real easy) I also have an electic shield for it but she never uses that.



For Sale: Electric shield for HJC CL-14 ---$75.00

Those pads in the mouth piece keep the air tubes from icing up. The helmets work well as long as they are latched properly. We have them for $309+ tax.

Bombi Modular Helmet question?

The local sled dealer down the street (not my normal guy) has an "07" yellow Bombi modular.... The silver one was sold, but I think Oldtimer needs to get one for the faker fighter jet. Have you guys SEEN the new ones?

Now, other than the fugly look to them, I really, REALLY liked it -- better than the AC modular helmet... but it's BRIGHT yellow. I'd look like a billiards ball -- and it was over $400. Once I got used to the mask (ha, and stopped hyperventilating) it was comfortable, AND it gives you a lot more peripheral vision than my other helmet. Since it's right up the street from where I work, I'm going back in Monday with my baclava so I can try it on. (Can you believe they didn't have any in stock? They said with the temps around here lately, they've put all their snowmobiling stuff away and are focusing on the Harleys and ATV's now. Yeesh!)

I got rid of my Modular helmet after seeing someone wipeout on his sled and the modular helmet literally blew apart on impact. Never will I ever own one again...

Swap, was it a Bombi helmet or was it another modular? Heck, my brother's Mach Z literally LANDED on him and his helmet's fine... his arm is jacked up but his helmet stayed together.

Badass: That place is only about 20 miles from here, but that wasn't the helmet I tried on.... the one I liked was one Ski Dog sent the dealer in Mantua, OH (Carlton's) for display or to show what the 2007 model helmets will look like. They offered to let us buy it since the silver ones seem to be the ones everyone's looking at. I may have to stop by there one day next week though and try that one on -- it's more than 1/2 the price of the new one.
