Default Ski doo helmet

What do you guys think of the Bv2s helmet. Is it worth the money, does it work well with a comm system?
Thanks

You will end up punching a hole in the breath mask.

some love it some hate it. I currently use one, and I also use a uclear communicator. I will say this, the helmet has alot of creature comforts, but IMO its of low quality, its loud, clunky and a bit cold around the chin area. My TXI helmet was alot more comfortable and quiet, but it leaked around the visor. All helmets have pros and cons. The BV2s is a good helmet, and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it, but its not perfect. I will say it is the best sealing helmet around the visor that I have ever worn, but could use improvements in other areas.

You might like the Mod 3 better. The BV2S is a VERY WARM helmet, you have to use the breath box with it and it holds a ton of moisture.
When I sold gear most people preferred the modular. Both have jaw type openings, although the Mod has the whole chin piece articulating up. The BV2S has the smaller chin piece that drops down.
I don't agree that the BV2S is cheaply made. I have an impressive helmet collection, have owned many.
If you trail ride predominantly, and your in a colder clime (NE, ME, Northern wherever, a closed faced Modular is the best choice. The BRP modular is of better quality than others.
If you like to off trail ride (mostly) a 509 open faced goggle combo is the best choice.
I have both LOL I don't really ride much off trail, but in the latter part of winter and spring I like a "cooler"helmet.

I completely disagree here. Mine is quiet, seals perfect with no air leaks at all. The only complaint I have is that if anything it's too warm.

I agree with fourcam the helmet is warm and leaks less that my Mod2. For those of you with condensate or fogging problems try using the exhaust valve with the 3ea holes in it. This will help with heavy breathing. Sometimes I don't think people know it's in the bag with the instructions?

Let me clarify, I am not saying its any cheaper than any other mod helmet. I think ther all cheaply made. A far as noise and air leaks. First off I never said it had air leaks or that the noise was from air leaks! The noise it has is a creaking noise,when you put it on, and when moving around. Put one on and kinda of wiggle it around to get it comfy, and you will hear the noise I am talking about. Also the padding is very firm. I own probably 15 helmets, from several snowmobile helmets, MX helmets, Simpson racing helmets. And the BV helmet is the noisiest period. Not saying its a bad helmet, thats just my review. They all have there issues like I said previously.

Hated, hated, hated mine....never worked correctly, nothing but issues....sold it on eBay, my buddy smashed his on the trail one night after the same problems. Rode back to camp with a scarf over his face and got frostbite, helmet was never seen again....that being said I have two friends that love them and swear by them, so who knows

Try one on before you buy. I can't find a brp helmet to fit me properly. If your head is round pumpkin shape you may be okay. If your head is oblong at all good luck. For me if the helmet will fit from my forehead to the back of my head it is too lose on the sides causing wind noise. My Bv2s was defective ,shield would not seal they did replace it and acknowledged the defect. Brp gets the helmets from China now and I find the quality control is all over the place. The older helmets built in Canada were good . Last year I tried
on 1/2 dozen and all fit a little different. They may have the issues with the Chinese helmets
fixed by now I'm not sure. Also they are a very heavy helmet. For the price I was not
impressed.
