I think OSBE may be onto something, but they haven't executed the design well.  If I were to improve their design I would change the visor so that it was smaller and would slide up inside the helmet (like in a slot between the outer shell and the liner).  I would also internalize the hinges and make them less obvious.  The hinges make the helmet look like something from Planet 9 from outer space.

OSBE adapted the hinge design from one of their motorcycle helmets. It is ugly. They could black anodize the chromed round pieces and make a significant appearance improvement. Current visor size is good for facial protection, space to fit over glasses and field of vision. There is currently no competition for the design concept, no need to improve or change the design.
