Firstly, let me say that in my pursuit of a low profile half helmet, I have been left cold and angry. There are simply not DOT half helmets that will look like what we all want. Period. This helmet, however, comes the closest! It's narrow sides give a smaller look from the front and it ended up being (after four different attempts at finding a helmet that looks and feels right) the lowest profile DOT half helmet I could find! The only problem is the comfort. It is NOT the most comfortable to wear. The straps are oddly placed and choke me a bit. Next to the Gmax GM55, this helmet is like wearing a sauce pan...it is not a comfy helmet, but if you want that low profile look, the others just do not match up.

Helmet Sizing Information.
To achieve proper helmet fitment, begin by finding your head circumference size using the method described below. Remember that the helmet sizing you choose should fit around the crown of your head comfortably with no pressure points. The cheekpads should fit firmly around your face. Once your chin strap is fastened, grab the chin bar of the helmet and move it side to side. Your cheeks should move with the helmet, which should not slide across your face. Different thickness cheekpads can be purchased to obtain the perfect fit.
Head Measurement Instructions.
Wrap flexible tape measure around your head approximately on inch above eyebrows and ears. Use this measurement (in either inches or centimeters) to find your helmet size in the chart below.

Looked long and hard for a helmet that wasn't too bulky, and would stay in place. Took this helmet out for a 70mph run without a windsheild, and it stayed put. As good as a dot helmet gets. Jafrum shipping was great! Would recommend this helmet!
Exactly what I wanted and as advertised. A lot for your money! Couldn't be happier for sure.
After 14 yrs. in a novelty helmet I bought a Vega helmet. I was in a serious accident and smacked my forehead on the road. It took a lot of paint off the helmet, other than a slight concussion I walked away! It now sits like a trophy on my mantle.
Just got this helmet in and I love it . I ordered this helmet and it's right on the money . The mushroom effect is minimal for a DOT helmet and the fit is perfect. The chin strap is long and I don't want to cut it because it has a snap on the end to keep it from flapping in the wind . Thats the only issue I have with this helmet. I'm from Arkansas , so I don't have to wear a helmet , but the wife wants me too since I make her wear one with her scooter . I believe I will be able to wear this comfortably . I'll give it and jafrum 5 stars
Like most of you I have done extensive research on low profile helmets. My head size measured 62 cm and some reviews said the helmet sizing runs big, so against my better judgement I ordered the XL. Unfortunately that left me with pressure points just above the ears. Which leads me to my explanation of the helmet 4 star rating; nice helmet, looks good, minimizes mushroom head, does fit oval heads best, workmanship appears very good, but you better be absolutely sure of your size. If you pick wrong, you are paying shipping again.
This helmet is definitely for the more oval shaped head...it is definitely narrow on the sides but that was good for me. I didn't have an issue with the long strap. Fit well, no mushroom head and did ok on the freeway although i found it trying to lift at 70+...i think i'll use it more for local riding than my typical freeway riding. So far so good!
Looks good, fit is very good. Doesn't catch the wind even at 70 mph. Minimal mushroom head look. Cops will like it.
The helmet is comfortable, it doesn't have that oversize look of a mushroom look. The size chart was right on with the helmet.
I did receive my L helmet in a few days after ordering. As for the helmet,,I really do like it. It fit true to the sizing chart and looks much better than the Mushroom cap bowl I had been wearing. IIt is very lightweight and comfortable and as far as the helmet goes, I am satisfied and would certainly recommend it. 5 stars for the helmet
Was advertised as low profile and it was not. Also advertised as novelty style, and it was larger than what I am currently wearing. Size was a little big too. Bought one for myself and my girl and both were too big and not as the ad says. Love everything I have bought from Jafrum, but this was not as advertised.
"Well made, fits like I expected. I wanted the forward strap attachments because some are located further back and tend to allow the helmet to slide back on your head while riding. Be aware that this helmet has a small vent on the front that's not mentioned or displayed. The strap rivets are shiny and you can just paint them if you want."
