    The $200 ones from CRC are old stock without the sticker, the 2015 should have a sticker. If it's sold in a bike shop in Australia then it must have a sticker.

    BikeBug have them

    I looked around a bit today and Fitzroy cycles sell a very similar Kask with a visor, but they did not have any in stock. I think it's a version of the Kask Inifinity.

    Not really probably like you just heard stories,
    Just find an old helmet and peel the sticker off big deal plus if the helmet is an approved model who could prove it has not peeled off on its own?
    A helmet does not need a standards sticker to be sold but it does to be worn on roads and in events that it is called for.
    Plenty of shops sell helmets with no sticker "eg" POC Tt helmet, skate helmets and a lot of Bmx helmets/Mtb helmets.

    Ok then, I just assumed that they would. Like Samuel L Jackson says, when you make an assumption you make an ass out of you and umption.



    Then there's the Bell Star Pro, claims to be aero, designed in a wind tunnel etc., comes with a clip in visor. Looks pretty good value for $214 at Pushys

    Just sayn'. Doesn't seem to bother anyone at track though.


    I'm no expert but I would have assumed it would be the organising body of the days responsibility...... It's not the drivers responsibility to make sure their car is cool before driving onto Willowbank, you gotta go through tek.

    I love this lid and if I could have got one with the sticker a few months back I would have for sure.

    ^ I'd rock one for sure. Lokione and I have discussed at length rocking the yellow version of this, with some sort of iridium lens on our orange #sjerks tarmacs for maximum fuckwit cred.

    oh, and be careful when ordering just in case its not obvious.

    Theres a shield and non-shield version, you cant add the shield later if you buy the non-shield version.

    its missing the magnetic docking points.

    I like to wipe my brow a fair bit when I'm riding. I reckon not being able to do so would piss me off.

    was also one of my concerns, that and i couldnt wear a cap which absorbs most of my sweat

    however i found the sweat would just roll down my face and off my chin instead of getting stuck around my sunnies

    but yeh, if you try wipe your brow, you will most likely end up accidentally dislodging the visor
