Anyone know anything about these or have their hands on one? They look really cool, have a MIPS sort of thing and the price isn't too bad. https://www.motostorm.it/en/helmets/offroad-helmets/ufo-offroad-helmet-diamond-matt-black.html#tab-description

What about the rest of their gear? Is there a way to get it in the us, or do we have to have imported?

Yea the gear looks good too, I sent them an email about a US distributor but I haven't gotten anything in return.

Can’t you just buy it from the website?

My son used the previous model Interceptor and it was not a bad helmet at all but as you can guess from the price the overall quality is not at the level of Bell Moto-9, Arai or Shoei. Small things like how the different bits and pieces fit and align and so on. It reminds Airoh as it is very light and similar design.

I currently run a Moto-9 my biggest issue is its ridiculous hot and doesn't vent worth a damn.

Pretty sure you can get the boots from UFO Plastic/TUF so I'd imagine you can get the rest of the gear through them. I think he's the only one that has the right to distribute the gear.

Send UFO Plastic/TUF an email.

Get a hold of Dave Antolak at TUF Racing/UFO Plastic USA. He can get anything that UFO makes. I just bought a UFO enduro jacket from him. Real nice stuff. Takes a few weeks to get in though.

The recon boots look pretty decent too.

Damn that's actually a really nice looking helmet.

The UFO gear from the 90's was great. I believe Cooper, Swink, and Smail wore that gear. Always wanted to get some.

I've used UFO kit and the quality has always been very good including the helmets. Spare parts readily available too.

I have some of the UFO gear and Helmets in stock. We are working on introducing these to the USA in the future with something very new coming soon. But in the mean time if there is anything you want now let me know and I can get it for you. In fact mentioned you saw in here on Vital and I will give a special Vital discount.

Did this, and what a pleasure. Very timely in his responses and full of good info. Look forward to doing business in the future.
