Little known but becoming increasingly popular since the launch of their new range, this is the Duchinni D605 modular helmet.
First impressions are that it’s a nice and sleek-looking lid at a competitive price. It’s a flip-up modular helmet that’s operated with a single button at the front that’s easy to use. It has the usual three vents – a chin vent, forehead vents and rear exhaust vent – and has a fully removable lining. There might be some question marks over the ventilation not being quite strong enough to keep the visor fog free but a decent anti-fog liner should sort that out. Like many modular helmets, it’s a little on the weighty side (it’s got the weight of the gubbins required to operate the movable front) so at 1890g it might get a bit heavy after a while.
It was independently tested by the SHARP helmet safety labs in 2018 where it scored a relatively low 2 stars (out of a maximum 5) which would stop us recommending you buy a 605 – although it did score a decent 97% for the percentage of times during testing its chin guard stayed locked and closed. That’s a very decent score.
