Buy a vintage helment and re-line it.
they just don't make them like they use to.

Until you smack that 30 year old fiberglass on the ground and it turns to dust ;)

at 35mph.
I don't think it will go poof.

What are the exact forces impacting your head at 35Mph? I don't know but I'd bet it's a lot.

I have a Bell 500 in size large and it just fits, I also have a Bell Star full face in size medium that fits very good and a large AGV V-Flyer also a good fit. The difference between the 500 and Star is substantial, you gotta try them on to know what size.

My buddy just picked up a Bell500 and compared to my vintage lids, its looks less "spaceman". He is a big dude though, which may help to make it look a little better.

I you get the medium and don't like it, ill swap ya :)


anyway you would take a close-up shot of the helmet on your head?  I can't find any place locally that stocks them so that I can try it on for size.

also, has anyone seen the black shimmer 500 in person? supposedly a limited edition...it looks to have rainbow flake in it. I want a black helmet that is unique but I don't want it to look like something a lady would wear either..lol

well Jordan (TurdFerguson on here) got a Large in the Bell 500, Orange flake.  I tried it on and it fit ok on top but seemed loose on the sides.  I think I am going to go ahead and get the medium. 


Adamantium, if it is too small, i will trade you.
