Joe Rocket Audio Ready

So I was at powermotorsports checking out helmets while they were checking my credit to buy my first bike. Saw a whole bunch of Joe Rocket helmets, one that stuck out to me was the Joe Rocket 2008 Model RKT 101 Villain Helmet, I noticed it says Built-in communication system speaker cavity, how can I find out more information about buying the speaker for possibly my phone? Anyone know about this?

i think what they mean is there is a space under
the ears for the chatter box headset, and a place
in front of your mouth with velcrow for the mouthpeice.
hjc's have that too! in other words; it will accomadate
a communication device of sorts. imo, i wouldnt get
a joe rocket or icon helmet because there to heavy.
try to get the best you can afford, nothin like a good helmet!
good luck in your purchasing travels

Helmet is not gear that you should go cheap on. Chatter box stuff is great if your touring ( ask Rick, vivid, jammin and the others here that do that alot)but for daily travel etc. not sure really needed... You need all your senses on daily commutes too much other stuff going on....Do your home work on helmets if you have no history with use try on, try on try on.. Measure twice cut once... But ask lots of questions here first.. Lots to consider.

*wind noise
*weight
* parifial (sp) vison
*fogging up
* personal comfort
*rating
*price it is your head ya only get one


Style and other bs comes after

I have a big fat huge fing head so I had very very limited choice like (1) HJC wish I could be picky and choose... It was that or a cardboard box with a bungie or a Harley 1/2 skid lid...

Personal disclaimer *I wear and sometimes choose not to wear, my choice, but I have one** I ride both types Harley & Rocket..

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

Again go to as many shops you can and try on gear Chicago Cycle has big selection and even DGY, just use these places as a try on outlet than do your home work and make your purchase based on what you liked..

Lots of online places to get great deals.. Visit and use site sponsors
when you can.... Support those that support us...

Let everone chime in on a place that have used with good expericnaces and go from there.. Good Luck onj yoiur search and great choice to wear gear...

Here is just one place I was on that had some clearance stuff...

Thats a pretty crappy thing to suggest. If you go somewhere and try on their in stock product buy from them! If you want to get another one down the road online go ahead.
