I like the built in, flip up, sun visor. I also like the idea of a having a unique lid.
The cheapest prices I could find where here . I've yet to contact the vendor and see if they ship across the pond.

I haven't tried them but a friend of mine has one for himself and one for his wife and has been very happy with them.
Here in Belgium they are quite popular and not so expensive.
Mmm i love my v2. only prob is if i go down wearing it the insurance company will say it wasn't dot approved. But the fit is nice and the visor is AWSOME. I tried the jusstisimo and it just didn't seem as solid plus the reports of possibly water leakeage in the rain. V2 is a solid helmet and my only complaint is when doing a moto gp style look back sometimes my visor blows open. so i think a no jo wind blocker woul dbe a nice addition to this lid. I also had to order my lid from europe so i'm afraid of what will happen when i start looking for a new visor. Three of the guys i ride with have bought them since seeing mine
This could be a deal breaker. My HJC does this, and it's one of the reasons I'm looking for a new lid. How's the wind noise? As far as the DOT approval, does anybody ever check that? The ECE standard is a lot stricter than DOT. It would suck not to get covered in an accident b/c your helmet has the wrong sticker.

the visor thing would probably be easy to fix but yes it has a fairly easy moving front screen. wind noise is better than my hjc but i use plugs anyway so i don't bother with wind noise. it does have the nap flaps to stop the low buffet noise. real nice lid all around though. i'd buy it again. and so would every one i know who has one
where to get the caberg....
try www.lidsforless.co.uk , email Mark. He will ship to the States for GBP 29.99 ...translates to about 1.7x that amount in dollars but the price makes up for it. The v2 is priced at GBP 84.99 as far as I can recall. That's about $195 shipped, takes about 10 days. BAD A$$ HELMET.............
it's not the size...it's how u wring it!
ok i take back my opening at high speed look back thing. apparently i just mussed up my lid lock bump. my friend hugh sais he never has a problem with it
Go to any Harley-Davidson oriented event and one or more of the vendors will be selling DOT stickers. Measure where the real one is located on an approved helmet and put your own sticker on your european helmet in the same location....Not that I would ever do anything like that...
