Well, these are definitely not your traditional German motorcycle helmets…but they do fall within the German helmet category. They are the chrome dome (as I like to call it), flames and the butterfly beanie.
The Chrome Dome
For obvious reasons, I call this one the chrome dome as it is in the traditional styling of German motorcycle helmets…but has a full exterior shell made of chrome. Now be careful wearing this one in the sunshine states…as you’ll likely blind quite a few drivers…not to mention fellow riders in your pack! This helmet is DOT certified, so you do have the protection of a certified helmet with additional styrofoam (in most models…but double check the specs on one’s you are looking at) to soak up any impact…as well as a soft inner liner. This will keep you comfortable and safe on those hauls around town or on the road.
This is a flat base German motorcycle helmet with an accent of flames…again, won’t see this worn in the German army. This one is not as bright as the Chrome Dome…but does give you some extra flare in the German category of helmets. It also has the DOT certification…but be sure to look for the DOT label as there are still quite a few novelty helmets out there that are not certified. It also comes with the styrofoam padding and soft inner liner.
Here is one for the ladies in particular…it’s a beanie (which falls within the category of German motorcycle helmets) with purple, white and blue butterflies on it…the graphics are provided by Daytona Helmets. It is a clear finish and comes without a visor. This is another DOT motorcycle helmet and is actually stated to exceed the DOT standards. If you shop around, some of these helmets also come with a free head wrap or do rag…which is a $5.95 value.
So there you have it…some of the latest entries into the German Motorcycle Helmet category. Enjoy and safe riding! 🙂
