Luckily, Harley has managed to maintain a decent level of quality in their newest flip-up, the cumbersomely named Modular Helmet with Retractable Sun Shield. Like three of the other modulars in H-D's current lineup, this lid is made by HJC for Harley; the difference is this one has a polycarbonate shell, so you'd think it'd be less hefty than its composite cousins. But when we plopped it down on our trusty kitchen scale, it weighed in at 4lbs., 1oz - right in line for most flipups, but actually heavier than our size medium Shoei Multitec, which showed 3lbs, 12 oz. on the scale. Bear in mind that the Shoei has a beefier metal latching mechanism along with a fiberglass composite shell, making the comparison all the more surprising. The saving grace is that the MHRSS (easier to call it that) doesn't feel any heavier on your head; at least its mass is well-balanced (though we wish Harley wouldn't list its weight as 3lbs on the website). But no matter how you feel about the merits of polycarbonate versus composite fiber shells (poly is softer, composite fiber harder), the level of comfort in the MHRSS makes a positive first impression. The fit felt snug and consistent all around, with no hotspots developing after we rode with it for 100 miles. Its shape definitely favors rounder heads, so I was comfortable throughout my ride, with a good view out of the eyeport and easy actuation of the flipup chinbar.
