Juan: that Prussian spiked helmet would likely kill you in a fall unless the spike was made to break away at the slightest impact. Imagine yourself falling head down in a crash with a spike in the ground. Your head would stop falling while your neck broke. Not a good helmet.
Yeah, at $160 its pretty steep for a non-dot approved helmet. But it would sure scare off most of those d-bag drivers.
Thank you! It will be fun... ;)
Sorry for the very untimely response...
Can you tell me more about this helmet? Is it army, gov't issued? Does it have padding on the inside?
I seriously like the look of it! A helmet company would have a smashing hit on their hands if they replicated the look!
As promised here's a picture of my glow-in-the-dork hell met... leather lined heavy metal skid lid. Not too much different from the ones posted above by the notoriousDUG
I have a ten year old bell helmet someone gave me. It was dorky blue, so I put a raincover on it. The raincover got lost. I went shopping for a new helmet because the dorky blue covershell was cracked and deteriorated. The Bern's do look cool, but on my head I felt like a star wars storm trooper, or like i should be playing polo.
so, i ripped the cover off and now I have a generic charcoal black styrofoam shell. It's great! It's also really light, and saved me a bunch of money!
Those new colorful hardshell helmets are cool, though!
