Bought this one mainly because my younger son is in the Air Force. Love the graphics. Fits great. This is my 1st skid lid. Will be getting another soon. Our grand kids show an interest in riding with me on my 92 Fatboy. 5 stars.

I happened upon Skid Lids quite by accident; Searched online for Skid Lids and found a number of different sources. I settled on Jafrum.com for a number of reasons. Primary among them was the excellent product information videos that gave pros and cons concerning the proper selection, as well as, sizing and type of riding expected to be done. OK, the "lid" itself...well, the title says it all. When I saw the Skid Lid Naked Shorty Bomber Pin-Up I was immediately enthralled. Of course, you wonder if its a gimmick or if its a serious brain bucket that complies with DOT regulations/standards. The DOT standard is FMVSS 218, to which this helmet is designed, built and tested. OK, enough of the technical stuff - I'll leave that to Slick and Slime in the videos...as for the helmet itself, the quality is superb. Fit and finish are flawless, especially the rubber edge liner which meets perfectly at the rea of the helmet. The paint and luster are excellent, and as some reviewers have previously remarked, looking better than advertised or expected.
My head measured 7 3/8". I just used twine, followed the instructions provided by the product video (those guys are so much fun) by marking the meeting points, snipping the twine and then measuring the resultant length of twine. That equated to between 59 - 60cms. I actually consulted some competitors' web site sizing charts to get a good overall sense of my correct size. If you aren't good with metric just remember that 1 inch = 2.54cms.
If you're worried about that "mushroom look" don't be. Unless my head is just huge, and I don't think it is, the helmet looked very compact and sleek while providing enough of a bell to adequately protect my head. It looks good.
What about ease of ordering and customer service? I ordered directly over the phone after a few final questions which were answered to my full satisfaction. I then placed the order, Unless you need to ride the next day, just select the standard shipping. My helmet arrived in less than three days via UPS.
Customer service? Well, they have a young lady . She took care of a question I had concerning what I thought was a blemish on the helmet but actually is part of the design, i.e., a bullet hole in the Stealth Fighter logo. Upon re-inspection, she was absolutely correct.
So,, that pretty much sums up my experience with jafrum.com thus far...good product, good price and great people...all we need are better ingredients and we have a pizza!
Great fit and excellent look.. I've worn it on several longer rides and I'm very pleased. Love the graphic!
This is the first Skid Lid I have had, but it won't be my last. The fit is very good and the comfort is there. I have had many positive coments about it with other Air Force vets asking me where I got it. Thanks Skid Lid for a great cover and to Jafrum for having it.
Great helmet for the money. Worn on several long rides already...very comfortable,and looks better than pic.lota' comments.Thanks
My helmet arrived well packaged and the design was more breathtaking than imagined. I have had many nice comments and double-takes on the road with my bomber design helmet. It is lightweight and comfortable. Thanks!!!! AAA+++
Helmet just arrived and it's everything you said it was. Great fit and looks very durable. Already had a comment from another biker who wondered where I got it. Thanks
Great product from an awesome company was delivered fast. Thank you!
Great look, Great Fit, Great detail, Very quick delivery time.
Easy to shop. Great price. Many compliments on the helmet. Told people where to get it.
Price was great, lid was great and service was great. What else can I say. Thanks, maybe?
Good quality; great design. Unbelievable value. I just wish they made a size bigger than XXL. XXL only j-u-s-t accommodates my head, and I would haave gone 1 up if it had been available. Another thing: I know this is the design of the helmet, and you either like it or not, but for me, the absence of a peak is a big drawback. The sun is ALWAYS in your eyes. If the 'no-peak' style is that important to you, buy one. But if a little function comes into it, look for a lid with a peak, even just a small one. I bought it for the looks and design, and I am not sorry. But I do not think I would buy a lid again that has no peak at all.
My husband viewed this helmet MANY times on the web site. Kept telling me how much he liked the look of it. I ordered it and surprised him with it for his birthday. It is even nicer than looks on the web site He gets compliments from other riders whenever he wears it. VERY happy with the purchase.
Cool looking helmet, but Skid Lid went on the cheap making it. The D rings cut into your face when tightened, all they needed to do was stitch some padding next to D ring. Guess I'll take it to the tailor and rig it myself. Come on Skid Lid, you can do better than this.
