I bought the helmet for cheap, 'cause I was sick of my all-black one. I wanted some color, etc.

But skulls really aren't my thing. A little bit cheesy, really. So I figured I'd lighten up the image with some "heart-eyes" :coocoo Now I'm not really sure... Oh well :O

Was this a custom helmet? How well do u know the guy who made it?
Be aware of people who take crash damaged helmets on the cheap, and sand and repair damage (only covering it up) paint custom design.

U may have a piece of art, rather than a serious piece of head protection.

Haha no. It was brand new, just cheap (masei). The skull had red glowing eyes. I changed them with a little DIY.. ingenuity.

Masei makes "universal" brake discs for $11.99 also, so you know it has to be top quality stuff...........

Yeah, beyond the fact that I wouldn't wear it because of how it looks, I also wouldn't wear it because I actually care about my head :O

Unfortunately, it's all I have at the moment :rant
..................... from original post:
'cause I was sick of my all-black one
what happened to that one? :O


Also, there's still a clear and simple correct answer to your problem even if that is currently your only helmet: DON'T RIDE UNTIL YOU GET A NEW ONE :bigthumb:

The black helmet is too small. I bought it when I got my first bike. I couldn't get shit for advice other than "whatever you think fits/feels fine", so I picked that one. It's a Bilt DOT approved, was $50, and is size small (which is uncomfortable). This masei was $50, medium, and also DOT approved. So I figured it couldn't be worse.

From what I can tell and researched, if it's DOT approved then everything else you are paying for is cosmetic or some other luxury/feature.

If this masei really isn't DOT approved, then I've been basically riding around with just a ordainment on my head :dowhat



Edit: Meh. I think I might just bite the bullet on a FG-17 X-Fuera MC-1 in red..

Go to google images and search for Masei helmet. You will notice most of their helmets are just made for looks.

Wow! I'd be incredibly surprised if many of them are actually DOT certified...I've been wrong before tho :O

I've got an FG-17 and I love it. For the price, I think it's one of the best helmets on the market, far better than anything else in it's price range, IMO. Can't go wrong with it!
