Don't feel too bad. Klim won't offer a clear sheild for their helmets with transitions shields. Like I want to buy another $140 shield just to have my pinlock insert in. Rarely need transition shield in the rain.

Thanks I did a search and the only place that helmet comes up is my posts in this thread, the Bell Revolver is a different helmet. Maybe I'm doing it wrong? Currently using a Shoei Neotech. The Bell attracts me because they offer a Transitions type face shield. Shoei will not offer a transitions type shield on any of their helmets that also have an internal drop down tinted shield. Kind of an overbearing nanny approach if you ask me.
Having owned a bell and the neotec, there is no comparison. The Neotec is lighter on my head and the ventilation is a hundred times better on the Shoei. It would be a step backwards to go to the Bell, I know I didn't have the SRT but I know the ventilation isn't as good. And flipping the face up isn't the same. That Shoei top vent flows a TON of air.

After the Shoei Mulitec I now use the Neotec. A good helmet, but after a long run the shape of the lining leaves three grooves in the top of my bald head, makes me look a bit like a Klingon.

I've owned the HJC Symax modular, their RPHA modular (unfortunately ordered this from Webike Japan and it didn't fit since their shape is round rather than long oval), Caberg, Schuberth E1 (nice lid but the shape was just slightly off for my head and hence uncomfortable on long rides), Shoei Multitec, Neotec and now the Neotec II which fits perfect and is my favorite of all. Nice to be able to open the helmet at low speed or at stoplight to get some fresh air during the Texas summer heat. My Neotec II is matte blue - time will tell how this finish holds up. Using the Sena SRL system for the Neotec II and it is a nicely integrated setup.
