I was out on my snowmobile this weekend and wearing my Shoei Syncrotec helmet. I have never experienced any problems with this until yesterday. I could not get the helmet to lock shut on both sides. What an uneasy feeling knowing that your helmet is not safe. I am guessing that this problem must have been due to freezing up of the mechanisms inside the helmet, as it seems to work fine now that it has been inside overnight. Now that my trust in the helmet is gone, I feel that the helmet is useless to me.
I am not sure how many of you use the same helmet on both your snowmobile as your cycle, but I just wanted you to be aware of a possible problem.
I am wondering if anyone has experienced this with this helmet? And would you still trust it?
