Predator Helmet - Yay or Nay

I've seen these all over the place and they're kinda cool. But I watched some reviews on YouTube about a company called Nolo(sp?) that was basically a scam with garbage products. But then I came across a video featuring a company called https://rezzercustom.com/ that starts with an HJC helmet and builds from there. Personally, I think they're kind of obnoxious, but definitely a head turner. The new Phantom helmet would be pretty sweet with the Bear Claw dreadlock ends.

If money weren't an option, would you buy one?

Just modify with hi-viz color scheme of your choice and add some luminescence.

I think it would look nice in hi-viz with the green V.

reminds me of my headlights when I installed the projectors:

Nope. Looks more like a party mask than a helmet that would protect a rider's head.

I think they are actually pretty stupid looking, but if you like them, go for it... just make sure it a quality helmet underneath all that gay decoration.......

I guess what Im saying is dont lose sight of the fact that its purpose is to protect your head...

Helmets like this are like onesie pajamas. You need to be a certain age to pull them off and not look ridiculous.

I BELIEVE your sentence should read:

It doesn't look aerodynamic. I prefer to wear helmets that are light, aerodynamic and safe.

Alright if you're an attention-starved exhibitionist, willing to sacrifice safety for a fleeting moment of self-perceived glory.
