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,

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.

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.

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.

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!

Helmet came relatively fast. It was packaged securely. Took it out of box, threw it on and got on my Metro scooter. Fit to size. Light helmet and zero bubble head look. I would say helmet is good for local roads, speeds under 35mph, ears and chin exposed, hence 1/2 helmet.
Five Varieties Of Motorbike Headgear

Motorbike headgear are usually of five types and they are secured for the rider's head employing a chin strap. The goal of wearing them in addition to their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap is just not secured.

Full Face Helmet: The full face helmet covers your entire head around the skull base and is regarded as the protective of all the helmets. It provides a swiveling cutout band, called a visor, created from transparent plastic throughout the front in the eyes and nose. Some helmets likewise incorporate vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and deficiency of wind. Full-face helmets which are widely used for motocross or off-road rides don't sometimes have a face shield nevertheless the visor and chin portions are extended. Head gear with less coverage is less safe.

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

Though off-road helmets didn't have a chin bar previously, modern off-road helmets have a chin bar to safeguard the face area from impact during crashes. By such helmets in addition to goggles, the equivalent protection as from full face helmets is possible.

Modular/Flip-Up Helmets: Commonly known as with the name convertible, the modular helmet can be a hybrid involving the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is with a pivot and is moved upwards to resemble an open face helmet. Anybody wearing the helmet may thus have the ability to drink and eat while not having to eliminate the chinstrap. They are liked by motor officers who are moving around.

Modular helmets are usually kept closed while riding and the chin bar is kept up only when not riding the motorcycle. If your helmet is kept in view position while riding, the potential risk of neck injury is greatly increased in the event of an accident. However, those modular helmets which are dual certified as full face and open face helmets offer a great degree of protection even though found in the open mode.

Open Face Helmet: The open face helmets cover the rear in the head, the ears and the cheeks such as the contain the chin bar that the full face helmet possesses. Many of them have provisions for visors to become snapped on. The protection for the face is minimal when utilizing these helmets.

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

Half Helmet: Famous throughout the 1960s and also known as the pudding basin helmet in the united kingdom, 1 / 2 helmet or &lsquoshorty' was popular among road racers. The design is practically similar to an open face helmet without worrying about lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet won't offer much of a protection and the rider has got to wear goggles to safeguard the eye area. Due to decreased safety which they offer, several Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned using this half helmet.

Headwear Not Included Within The Whole World Of Helmets

Informal headwear such as beanies and brain buckets cannot be included to mean motorcycle helmets. These kind of headwear usually are not certified for safety and they are smaller and lighter than conventional helmets. They don't have precautionary features including the energy absorbing crash foam. At their best, such novelty helmets can prevent the scalp from sunburn or even the scalp against abrasion. However, they can not stop the skull in the impact of the crash.
