Copied from the other board.

After several of you(I won't mention any names), have said the Magenta helmets clash with the blue. We ordered new silver helmets. The problem is, we loved the Vega Vista 3/4 helmets. Hal or nobody has them in bright blue metallic. In fact, HDL doesn't have any color of the VV 3/4 helmets. So, I ordered 2 silver ones from Wingstuff. They still have them in 05 silver, & 05 dark gray. At least the silver shouldn't clash quite as bad as the magenta's, & the silver should be a little cooler for summer anyway. Anyone know why Vega isn't making these type anymore? Seems like that's the way it always works. I find something I like, & it get's discontinued. :(

Here's a link, so you can see what they look like.

Well, I never complained about your helmets, but I have something to share. :)

I had a silver Fulmer modular (aka "flip front"), and finally realized it's too small. Of course, it's an XXL, so going larger was tough. My head seems to go in a straight line from the zygomatic arch down to my jaw, unlike most folks whose jaws indent a bit. So I was getting tons of pressure from th cheek padding on Fulmer, Arai, Shoei, HJC, KBC, and others. So I stumble upon this Vega Summit XPV at an out of the way shop near Knoxville. The XL fit pretty well, so they odered an XXL for me. The cheek padding is so much easier to deal with on these. Anyway...

When I first got my bike it was that Candy Regal Brown. Okay for the 80s, but I prefer blue. So I am in the process of painting my bike a two-tone blue and the lady at the shop suggested the blue Vega. I haven't had it in my hands yet, but she says it's almost a dead-on match for the overall appearance of the new "Illusion blue" on the 1800s.

Here's a link:

Helmets



JUst scroll toward the bottom, "metallic light blue". Not the best pic, but it's a start.

Must be my fault. The link I inserted didn't automatically "wrap," and I can't seem to fix it. Moderators?

If you go back and edit it, force a break in the middle.
