Carbon Fiber Beanie Helmet

carbonfiberhelmetOf course you don’t need to ride a carbon fiber custom built motorcycle to wear one like that. The advantage? Made of super light-weight ABS construction with a durable, high gloss finish (UV protected) to show off your carbon fiber helmet. Other features: plush and absorbent interior liner, includes a removable visor (face-shield compatible), stainless steel dual D-rings, a DOT approved helmet sticker displayed on the back of the helmet under the clear coat so you should be protected from tickets (words of the manufacturer), and comes with a free helmet bag. For sale online at Moto Direct.

    Insane not to wear a regulation DOT approved helmet. Each to their own.

    Ride smart, wear a helmet.

    The helmet looks great!

    To each their own.
    Some times I don’t want to wear a helmet.
    No one has the right to tell me otherwise.

    God bless the USA.

    No one has the right to tell you not to Crap in your Pants either, but that doesn’t make it right to do it! The Bottom line is if you got a Head that’s worth protecting then Ride without ! They said that Helmet is DOT ! Good Luck, ride without a Lid ! You’ll need it !@#$%$#@#$

    I don’t want to be forced to wear a crash hat, but I ain’t stupid enough to ride without one.

    I’d like to find a non-DOT approved carbon fiber helmet w/ snap-on visor (the smoke gray visor that you can look through).

    I don’t want the thickness of a DOT helmet. I’ve worn a DOT peanut once before. I felt like a bobble-head, and that my head was so heavy with plastic and foam that the impact of a crash would pop my head off like a grape.
    I only drive 63 mph and if I get in trouble, it’s easy to just jump off and start running.

    If anyone can direct me to an illegal carbon-fiber peanut shell, I’ll buy one today.

    • THE SMALLEST AND LIGHTEST DOT APPROVED BEANIE ON THE MARKET
    • Dimensions: 8.5 inches from ear to ear and 10.5 inches from front to back
    • Super lightweight: Only 29 ounces! (which I calculate to be 1lb. 13 oz.)
    • The smallest and lowest profile EPS liner on the market, at 3/4″ thick
    ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

    My non-dot beanie w/ snap on visor is 7.5″ wide and 9.5″ long and weighs 1.20 (or 1.8 oz.)
    So, the DOT helmet runs 5 oz. heavier than my current non-DOT beanie.

    Their carbon helmet dims. are 1″ wider and 1″ longer than non-DOT.

    I wonder how deep they sit on your head. Are they high profile or low-brow?

    I might order one, sine they have a 365 day return policy. Thanks for the link. 🙂

    Ordered one. I’ll wear test it and report back.

    I wear a helmet, AND I crap in my pants whenever I damn well fell like it!
    I don’t crap in my helmet, though.

  11. 11 Axel Feb 8th, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    Insane to be so afraid of riding a motorcycle that you have to wear a helmet. Why not just lock yourself in your bathroom?
    Oh yeah, more people die from head injuries from falling in the tub than from riding motorcycles!
    What to do?
    I know! I’ll just ride without being afraid!!!!

    The helmet arrived and it’s everything the mfg. claims. Extremely well made and light. Easy to buckle, thick and narrow nylon chin strap. It’s a translucent charcoal helmet, with a silver carbon fiber/Kevlar base. They’re a good value compared to other carbon/Kevlar helmets.

    I seriously doubt whether you’d ever get pulled over by the po-lice as a non-DOT helmet.
