    Until helmet companies stop hiring designers that I'm betting have Celtic arm band tattoos, I'm sticking with matte black.

    Re: What is your helmet color?

    I wanted one that would be unique and very noticeable for drivers on the road to have a better chance of seeing me, and i believe this did help a lot.

    Bell RS-1 Shattered


    I was originally planning on coloring the 'shattered' parts so the helmet would just be black and white weird striped, but i guess i was lazy and eventually didn't feel the need to anymore.

    I invested in a Scorpion exo-500, black/white oilcan, medium. I love the fit. The visor is easy to change and not too noisy on the highway. I previously had an HJC all white which I liked but was a little too big in comparison. I have only been riding for two years now and have learned and read alot on equipment. Being female I did all the research, went to store more than once, wore it in store for 20 minutes etc then asked for price match, no problem. Graphic on helmet is excellent. And my scala fits perfectly in it.....

    Wearing a Scorpion EXO-700 Predator with mostly black and red graphics. Really liked the fit (tried it on in local motorcycle shop, then purchased it at Revzilla.com for almost half price!). Been very happy with it. Lots of visor colors to purchase if you want and extremely easy to change out.

    Re: What is your helmet color?

    Just replaced my old Bell Sprint with a Scorpion EXO500. This helmet is very light, considering that it has a drop-down sun-visor. Love the everclear visor. The fit is absolutely spot-on after break-in. The sizing is a little small on the Scorpions so I got a XL compared to my L Bell Sprint, however, the shell of the scorpion is smaller than my old Bell.:BLAA:

    Re: What is your helmet color?

    I have two to choose from: a Shoei X11 silver that is an old standby and my Blue Scorpion EXO.. I have a blue bike so I use the blue most often... Would never buy a black helmet- too hot here in central Texas!!

    Re: What is your helmet color?

    Caberg Konda,
    Mine is black but I want a white one or hi-vis. I was unable to get white in the helmet that I currently have. I had an article very recently about the colours of vehicles in involved in accidents. It was linked to visibility and colours. Black also scored poorly, Silver was the least visible and white was the most visible. If I could get a hi-vis coloured lid I would get that.

    Re: What is your helmet color?

    Plain old white HJC CL-15 for the FZ. Comfortable and serves the purpose. Had it close to 5 years now and it's just about time to replace it.

    Silver Shoei RJ-Air Platinum-R 3/4 for the Venture.
