    Default Bonanza vs novelty

    Here is a side-by-side comparison between the Bonanza and Biltwell Novelty. The size difference is not nearly as dramatic as you would think. The Bonanza is a bit heavier, but very comparable for a DOT Approved Helmet vs a Novelty Design.

    Thanks for the pic.

    Something to ponder tho... not everyone looks the same with a helmet on. Some folks have a tall narrow head/face, and some folks have a round, pumpkin head/face. The helmet that looks great on your pumpkin headed friend may look quite stupid on you if you have a tall head.
    I agree with the hot air baloon look. I don't have a problem with that really-it's the fit. I have a Bell 500 in XL. I like a snug fit, but the bell leaves liner marks on my forehead (no biggie), but the cheek pads compress my face so much that it is uncomfortable. The builtwell chart says to get an XL as well, but I am at the top of the size (23 1/4"). Wondering if I should go to a XXL? The licks chart puts me in a large and in the middle of that range. Any thoughts?

    The confidence that comes with a nice fitting helmet is clearly worth it.


    But seriously, im jealous how that Bell 500 fits on faster than trouble, the Bell was on my head for a second before i tore it off my head in embarrassment..Massive bubble head.

    Here's my bonanza with the goggles. I don't think it makes the head look too big. But here's a pic for comparison.

    it all depends on your head shape... you are one of the fortunates that 'fill it out nicely'

    I guess I got lucky ha!. That's an XL I have a little bit of room in it but i think a Large would have been too small. I wear size 7 5/8 hats for reference. Hope that helps.
