I´m going to buy a new helmet soon and have done some research (surprise).
First I thought of a really stiff fiberglass/kevlar helmet like Arai or AGV would do, but after reading THIS article from motorcyclistonline, I have come to another conclusion. Softer (read polycarbonate) gives less impact and less G:s to your brain. Less G:s is the difference between a few weeks at the hospital or being an organ donor!
So why are there so few good looking helmets out there?
Most look like graffiti from a wall somewhere and that is just plain misplaced on a bobber.
The black jet is a classic and will always work fine.
But look at these vintage helmets and you will also wish that that design will reappear again soon.
I´m a huge fan of flake paint on helmets.
Any ideas on which helmet to buy?
