Does anybody have an Akuma helmet? Ran across them in Popular Mechanics and they look kinda cool. I'm having a problem finding one to try on and am wondering if anybody can advise me on how they fit?
Thanks

:waving:I have never heard of them until today. My first instinct is no, until I knew more about them. Akuma Helmets Official Website

They look pretty neat to me, I would pick the Apache" one. My main concern would be how much do they weigh? That is my biggest complaint about my Symax by HJC. It is a great helmet, and works well, but is a bit heavy, so on an all day run or several days it does work on you as far as weight.

So I have a Shoei and a couple Nolans and a new Nolan ordered.

When you get into gadgets, it adds weight, has to. but does look like a some very cool helmets.

I would have to pick one up and try it on, just think they might be a bit heavy?? I could not find any information on that, on their site.

The new one is the color of your bike, with my yellow jacket and black bike, the contrast is easy to see.

Their web site says $99 dollars. They call it a sun visor.

Thanks KC. By the way, are you the member, from another post, who was going to check into a local dealer and hopefully get the real low-down on front fender extensions for airbag models? Phew!

Yes I will run over to Sumter in a week or two, I want a couple more wheels from the trike shop anyway. I will pester them till they show me all about them.
