Default Helmet

Is this thing safe? I'd say every single helmet I've seen thus far actually closes under the chin.

Most likely, it's "safe." It won't protect your face as much as a full-face helmet will, but it will keep you from splattering your brains on the pavement. If you're doing high-speed riding, you'll want the protection and comfort of a full-face. If you're putting down the beach road at 45, this one will do.

That 'thing' is only as safe as you are. You don't wear safe, it actually resides between your ears.

If the helmet has DOT, Snell, or EU standards stickers on it the gummit thinks it's safe. Remember, the gummit is only here to protect you from yourself.

Dude- if you gotta ask then you probably don't want to buy it in the first place.

Default Re:

Parents got it for me but I was looking for a reason to not wear it and get a different one. If I have a helmet I don't like wearing, the odds become greater imo that I'm not going to wear it or most likely just not ride as often (same thing happened to me while snowboarding until I just got a helmet that was actually nice).

Turns out it doesn't fit snugly anyways.

You are Wise, my son............

If you can take it back, I would do so. Find: a) a helmet that fits. And: b) one that you like the styling of.

But mostly "a".

GMax GM68 Odessey Helmet - RevZilla Motorsports

I wanted to get the 2007 gm68 crusader helmet after reading reviews on how it was kickass for it's price range, but it turns out they stopped making it. I settled for the 2009 model ;s
