    modular bike helmets

    I recently bought a HCI-89 MOD helmet. the users manual that came with it is just a little pamphlet that only mentions proper fit and cleaning and that it's done after one impact. There are no instructions on how the modular "jaw" is supposed to work (although I figured that one out when I found the little red button) and nothing is said about how the vents or the neat built in sun shield works. I tried contacting Helmet City, HCI helmets, but there is no way to ask questions. I bought the helmet through J&P cycles and they tried to help, but couldn't find anything on it either. I'm an old fart and don't want to break something by forcing it, so I'm hoping to find someone who has one of these or a similar helmet with the built in flip sun shield to clue me in on how it's supposed to work.

    Re: modular bike helmets

    On the left side of the helmet (when it your wearing it) is a piece that sticks out. If you slide that piece forward the sun visor will come down. If you slide it backwards the visor retracts back into the helmet. For the vents it is pretty much the same thing. the top front vents just push back to allow air in. I believe the jaw piece also has a vent that just slides down to allow in air. Hope this helps you out. Let me know if you need anymore assistance and I will look into it.
