Customer Reviews

Beware of JAFRUM seller!!!

My product review of the ACTUAL helmet is below. Beware of the seller JAFRUM because they sell a cheap knockoff version of this helmet. Compared side by side to my 2 other HCI 100s the only similarities are the HCI sticker and forged serial numbers but literally everything else is different. Their knockoff is much taller, bulkier in padding, wider and tougher straps, and it’s basic shape is even different. I remember someone else putting on their review of another product to beware of JAFRUM for this same reason but I didn’t think anything of it. I will try to post side by side pictures later.

THIS HELMET SAVED MY LIFE I have been riding since 1966 tried many helmets I ware a size M and frankly I find this helmet to be the most comfortable and stable feeling one that I have ever had. I got hit from behind and came down on the back of my head in August 2014. I sustained a concussion that I still am feeling some of the effects but the helmet did its job and did it well. It fits secure without being tight and the strapping is not cheap. It is a well built helmet and I am buying another one for a replacement,

Looks good Don’t want to know if it works good

Luckily I haven’t fallen on my head yet so I really can’t say if this helmet is any good or not. It was shipped real quick and looks cool. This is one of those products that you gotta have but hope you never need. So far so good in my case.

helmets are very small, order a size larger than needed.

Nice helmet with lots of padding. As I have never owned a half helmet before, I’m not sure if it is a little short. It feels like it should come down a little lower in the back/side, but then, all I’m used to wearing is a full helmet.

Cool DOT helmet.

Wanted a lower profile half helmet that would not lift at highway speeds. Well this was just like I expected. Cant say anything about the visor other than it was easy to remove. So far I like this helmet more each time I have worn it thus far. I feel safer wearing it and it doesn’t make look like a total dork wearing it. Would definitely recommend if you want a lightweight half helmet that is DOT approved.

Love this helmet

I love the look and feel of this helmet: it’s slightly vintage/retro, but the most important thing is that it’s functional and comfortable. Looking for a scooter helmet, this is a great one!

I love this helmet

This helmet goes perfectly with my retro scooter. It’s really sturdy and I feel safe with it on.
5 Varieties Of Motorcycle Helmets

Motorcycle helmets are usually of five types and are secured for the rider's head employing a chin strap. The objective of putting them on and their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap isn't secured.

Full Face Motorcycle Helmet: The total face helmet covers the complete head up to the skull base and is among the most protective of all the helmets. It features a swiveling cutout band, known as a visor, created from transparent plastic across the front from the eyes and nose. Some helmets include vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and insufficient wind. Full-face helmets which are popular for motocross or off-road rides tend not to sometimes use a face shield but the visor and chin portions are extended. Head gear with less coverage is less safe.

Off-Road/Motocross Motorcycle Helmets: Mototcross/Off-road Motorcycle helmets have extended visor and chin portions. The absence of a face shield allows the rider to utilize goggles and invite more airflow that's required during strenuous off-road rides. The visor protects the rider's eyes from flying debris and keeps the sun's rays's glare off the rider's eyes during jumps.

Though off-road helmets did not have a chin bar earlier on, modern off-road helmets use a chin bar to guard the face from impact during crashes. By using such helmets along with goggles, the equivalent amount of protection as from full face helmets is possible.

Modular/Flip-Up Motorcycle Helmets: Sometimes known from the name convertible, the modular helmet can be a hybrid between the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is over a pivot and could be moved upwards to resemble a wide open face helmet. The person wearing the helmet may thus have the ability to drink and eat while not having to take away the chinstrap. They're well-liked by motor officers who will be moving around.

Modular Motorcycle helmets are likely to be kept closed while riding and the chin bar is maintained not until not riding the motorcycle. In the event the helmet is kept in view position while riding, the risk of neck injury is greatly increased in the event of a crash. However, those modular helmets which are dual certified as full face and open face helmets give a great a higher level protection even though used in the open mode.

Open Face Motorcycle Helmet: Outdoors face Motorcycle helmets cover a corner from the head, the ears and the cheeks but do not possess the chin bar that the full face helmet possesses. Some of them have provisions for visors to get snapped on. The security for the face is minimal when utilizing these helmets.

Supplementing facial protection by wearing goggles or snapping over a face shield protects the face from flying debris, strong wind and insects.

Half Motorcycle Helmet: Famous during the 1960s plus known as the pudding basin helmet in the united kingdom, 1 / 2 Motorcycle helmet or &lsquoshorty' was popular among road racers. The style is actually comparable to a wide open face helmet without the presence of lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet won't offer a good deal of protection and the rider must wear goggles to guard your eye area. As a result of decreased safety they offer, a couple of Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned the use of this half helmet.

Headwear Not Included Within The Arena Of Motorcycle Helmets

Informal headwear like beanies and brain buckets cannot be included to mean motorcycle helmets. These types of headwear aren't certified for safety and are smaller and lighter than conventional helmets. They don't have precautionary features including the energy absorbing crash foam. In their best, such novelty helmets prevents the scalp from sunburn or perhaps the scalp against abrasion. However, they can not stop the skull through the impact of an crash.
