Lets see your helmet!!


Hi ROADTOAD. Is that the Pista? Weight 3.31lbs? That is one great helmet! I have gone with the Simpson M30 I do not like the look big but it only weights 2.78lbs! It is only $549.00 at Rev Zilla. its to bad I am not a dealer for them. I also think the AGV is a much better helmet.
Yes Mike , it is the first edition plain gloss carbon Pista . The helmet is marketed as a race 1st / street second lid , so lacks some of the niceties usually found on helmets . It lacks button press air flow louvers , just plugs that you either leave in or remove , and is a lid that requires ear plugs , for is fairly noisy . The vision this helmet allows is terrific , and as noted , the weight is not the lightest , but is certainly acceptable . I really like this lid , currently running the silver visor instead of dark smoke , and swapping them out is real easy . I would like to try the AGV electronic transition visor , but haven't quite been able to justify the $ ...
I really like the Simpson Bandit for one , and other for sure , I just checked out the M30 , I lie that classic alien like look , really racing / drag history still in that design . I remember in the '90 's , the monster faces etc, often custom painted on Simpson helmets , they were the bomb for crazy street helmets !!

Hi. I also have an Arai I picker it up at a flee market it was brand new and I got it for $20.00 I use it for the street. I have had a lot Shoeis and Arais over the last 50 years. I had an HJC but did not like it at all. I even have carbon fiber half bucket all covered with stickers it is as light as my hat. I will put up some pics as soon as I can.
