Check out this video of someone going strapless!



Haha. Well, anyway- what a cool idea! A chin-strap-less full face helmet. Would take some getting used to but I think it's way cool!

Looks like an interesting idea. Not sure if it will provide the same level of protection the way it splits in a half when opening.

It should be just as safe as modular, and some of the modular helmets now have Snell certification. Thinking about it, a modular helmet is similar in that the front opens up. The difference is, I can drink my coffee while my modular is on!

That's the main reason I want a modular. I don't have any issues getting sunglasses on like other folks. My full face is comfortable. I never feel like I need more ventilation. BUT; I'd love to have a modular so I could flip it up and drink my coffee or water! I can do water with the full face, there's a technique to it, but it would be oh so easy with a flip up! haha.

Can't see the video, at least from work, but I really like my modular helmet. I always wore a full face helmet as a kid, but the modular makes the sunshade thing easier. Or a quick drink at a red light or talk with a buddy about an up coming turn.
