View Full Version : New Helmet Idea

08-08-2017, 7:02 PM
I'm looking for a helmet that looks like the MA1, or the Steel Pot Soldiers in the Army during WWII, Korea, and Vietnam wore before Kevlar. Any Animal House fans would recognize it as the helmet D-Day wears on his bike. Are there any companies that make a motorcycle helmet in that style?

Doesn't exist, I looked for a DOT one about a year ago and couldnt find one. Emailed Bell and Biltwell and neither have plans to put one into production. If you don't want DOT you can try modifying a shell with a suspension

The design is shit for a protective motorcycle helmet because it, like other "half shell" designs will roll off the head when the back edge catches in a slide (besides not protecting anything below the rather high helmet edge), but the shells are composite so if you want a personal version it would be easy to adapt straps from a serious helmet. Throw on a chin cup for Airborne vibes. The suspension alone is useless for impact protection in a crash so at least pad the thing with styrofoam.
