Great Helmet

Comment: Cool naked shorty. Note that size chart gave me a bit of a tight fit when followed precisely. Great value.

Skid Lid Naked Shorty,

Comment: Good quality and finish on par with HD helmet it's replacing. Structure is similar (both are DOT), sizing feels accurate. Comfortable on my head, doesn't lift at high speed. Good helmet for [...] bucks.

Don't like mushrooms

Comment: So here's the deal. After hours of online research and chasing down thin DOT helmet manufacturers that are now out of business; the only way to truly get the look of a novelty helmet is to buy a novelty helmet. Period. If you need (or want) a DOT helmet, you're going to have to accept some of that dreaded mushroom look. This helmet is better than most in that regard but far from perfect. For the price, it's a good deal.

Great Helmet

Comment: Fits like any other brand. Looks good. I had to ad velcro to secure the excess strap, but other than that it is exactly what I wanted.

Daniel

Great Legal Helmet & Real Lite Helmet

Comment: I looked for years to find a helmet that was lightweight, DOT approved, and felt and looked like this helmet. I am not one to take chances so a ''' novelty'' was out of the question. This helmet was just what i was looking for. Great price, faaaaassst shipping,, great fit, lite, cool and LEGAL!..You won't go wrong with this one!

John Dezeeuw

Great skid lids

Comment: Great fit, tad snug. No head wobble. Looks great and light. You get a little sweaty though when its hot!!!! Strap is touch uncomfortable and no place to pin back when your underway. Great service, fast shipping, I would buy another...

Better than my $250 HD Helmet

Comment: This helmet fits my smaller head better than my $250.00 HD helmet. Not so bulky. feels good and looks good.

No mushroom look helmet

Comment: I was looking for a half helmet that does't give you the mushroom look but still has DOT protection. This helmet is a grate balance between both, its light and works awesome for the hot Tennessee weather.

Skid lid

Comment: Good helmet. I went and tried on helmets at a bike shop before I ordered online. If I would have used the sizing chart I would have ended up with a helmet a little to small for my melon. I like it

Matt

Graham,WA

Half Helmet Review

Comment: Small price to pay for the safety of your melon. It does what it's suppossed to do. As far as the look goes... i think it sits kinda high and there's no escaping the 'shroom look. I think its money well spent though

Bobby C.

Skid Lid is my choice

Comment: Small, light, fits perfect. Stays put at any speed, will not lift in the wind. The price is great and I am ordering a second one. Look no farther this is the one. Follow the size chart for this helmit and you will be happy.

Jafrum is the best

Comment: bought this helmet for a backup. Liked it so much became my main lid. great price fast shipment. Don't hesitate to buy from Jafrum

Skid Lid Flat Black Helmet

Comment: I got this helmet on sale from Jafrum. I can't believe the price I got for a name brand helmet. The helmet itself is great for a person like myself who hates to wear one. It is light weight and not too "mushroomy" like many DOT helmets are

George

New Jersey

Not bad for the money

Comment: Havent tried it on the road yet so I'll just comment on look and fit. I like the matte look, fit is in line with the sizing chart and it's fairly light too. There is the mushroom look, but it's a DOT helmet so expect it. The strap could use a button to secure it because it is long and could whip you when riding. But I can cut it a little shorter or something if I need to. All in all, it's my backup and good for the money.

Comment: Very solid helmet. Comparable to competitors helmet.

Will

Nice Helmet, just a bit small

Comment: The helmet is nice, but though I ordered the size shown in the chart, it was too tight for me. Could be that I like my helmets a little looser than standard. I returned it, & may order a different one later.

Nice little helmet

Skid Lid Motorcycle Helmet Flat Black

Comment: After many disappointing helmets over the years this one truly fits great without the eventual pressure point headaches. It also looks great without the mushroom appearance and is also DOT approved.

SkidLidFlatblack - Great product..better service!

Comment: This is the second Skid Lid helmet I've owned and I love it. The price was unbeatable and I got it in only a few short days....thanks Jafrum!

Best Motorcycle Helmet

Comment: I have bought several of these type helmets and this one even if it were to cost more, beat all hands down. Strap is postioned so you do not hear wind noise. It is the best fitting most comfortable. Highly recommend.

Gerald Bodin

Texas

Good Helmet

Comment: Great price, but I still have the mushrrom head look, but to be fair, I'll probably always have that look as I take a larger size. The quality is very good and the shipping was fast.

Tom

East Coast

Naked shorty Skid Lid helmet

Comment: The helmet is everything I thought it would be. It is still a little thick in padding, but this is to be expected for DOT certification. The strap needs a snap in order to keep it from whipping you in the face and the strap is a little uncomfortable as well. Overall, I was satisfied with the product. It works well even at 80mph without a windsheild. I could imagine that it would perform even better with one.

Rob

Skid Lid Naked Shorty Helmet Flat Black

Comment: Good lid, thicker than my last Skid Lid that had breen dropped way too many times. Kinda screws up the aesthetic but more protection I guess. Would recommend.

SKID LID NAKED SHORTY

Comment: Using the size chart, I was between a small and a medium. I ordered both and went with the medium. Has a good look; like the flat black look. Feels a little high on the head; however, used to wear a novelty. appears to be good quality. Compared others priced at 75.00 plus, this is a good pick for the buck providing this is the look you are after in a DOT helmet.

D. Byrd

Mize, Ms.

Still too Tall

Comment: The ad says "It has the look of a novelty helmet but DOT approved" Not exactly. It's as big a mushroom as the rest. The quality and price were great for a DOT helmet. I'm still looking for something slimmer.

Skid Lid Half Helmet

Comment: Pretty much what I expected. A little tight. But I like it more than the one I paid more than double for a my favorite motorcycle dealership. It's a little less mushroomy, and I took out the inner lining, so it would come down on my head a bit and not sit up so high.

Patti

Tennessee

Great helmet

Comment: Unconventional use for this helmet. I used it (after painting it like a watermelon) for a go-cart race. Rave reviews. Super comfy. Trust the sizing. Runs true.

FIVE STARS

Comment: Got this helmet last week just in time for the rest of the riding season in Colorado, love the helmet, sits firm on my head and not heavy, lets me wear my goggles and looks great, already have had a few compliments on it, does not give you that "mushroom head" look with its dipped down design, great price for a great helmet.

Comment: I ordered my normal size but it was too tight on the sides of my head. Fit my wife perfectly. Nice helmet but I recommend you to order a size larger than normal. I just ordered another one for me. Great price!

Shorty Helmet

Comment: I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband. He was thrilled and couldn't wait to ride with it. He said it felt light and didn't move in the wind. I plan to order me one too. Great value also!

Monica Spriggs

Nitro, WV

It's Okay Helmet

Comment: I feel like the mushroom Head is pretty big with this, and I do not think it looks close to a novelty helmet as advertised. The helmet is comfortable, but you will need to tuck the excess strap or modify it to not flap in the wind.

jjk245

Savannah GA

It works for me!

Comment: Good price and pretty fast shipping. As for the helmet itself, it's what I was looking for. My old helmet sat way to high. This one sits down nicely on my grape and has yet to cause any discomfort. My wife rides her own bike and, after riding behind me, stated it had a slimmer profile. I no longer have to look comical in order to truly experience the road.

I'm happy!

Comment: Super groovy for the money. The ladies LOVE it. At least twice a day some super sexy strange woman tells me how awesome I look in it. Then they comment on how long my chin strap is and I'm like " yea it's long and all but I can tuck it in and make it work. "

Comment: The five stars are for Jafrum only. They did there job very well.The helmet, not so much. The mushroom is there and the straps are made of cactus. Not what I expected but you get what you pay for.

Perfect Helmet

Comment: Exactly what we expected! couldnt be more happier!

Maines Family

Sanford, NC

Good fit

Comment: Everyone's reaction is the same, surprised I got a helmet then a little more surprised that its a good looking DOT helmet. I'm still trying to get used to the idea after 4 years of open air riding but the helmet does fit well, looks good and with a jacket and sunglasses it doesn't look very big at all, and it is very comforting to know that if some jack-hole puts me on the ground I stand a much better chance now!

Eric Renner

Fargo, ND

It's a mushroom!

Comment: Good price, but there is no way to describe it other than a mushroom look. The straps do nothing to help hide the thickness like the thick leather ones do on higher quality helmets.

Todd

Portland OR

M, M & I.

Comment: Helmet is very nice quality and size chart seemed to work just fine. The strap could have been longer and I don't care for the buckle but do like the solid feel when it's on. Still a little mushroomy though. I miss my novelty helmet look.

Comment: Fit is great. comfortable. seems light weight compared to other helmets. con is excessive strap

Skid Lid Naked Shorty Helmet Review

Comment: This helmet fits well and gives less of the "mushroom" effect then most other helmets I've tried. Although being a DOT helmet you will still have some, just keep in mind the shape of your head and the shape of the padding in the helmet. My other helmets have had more of a roinded shape then this one. The helmet is comfortable on the highway, it does not try to pull up or move around at high speeds. The only problem I have with it is that the strap opening or the Y section on one side touches my ear lobe. That could be due to my abnormally large ears but who is judging.

Comment: Awesome helmet and a great price. This is the best fit smallest profile DOT helmet i have found.

Mike Reel

Best bang for your buck

Comment: Fits really well. Size chart is perfect. It's a little snug when you first get it but after just a couple hours it's forms to your head. It is a DOT helmet so there is a little "mushroom" look but I'd rather have the protection when I need it most. It's really light and a lot of people I know try it on and wish they went with skid lid versus other brands. This is my first half helmet and I love it. Throw some sunglasses on and you're good to go.

Comment: If you're looking for something comfortable and light-weight, this helmet is for you. just make sure you actually use the sizing chart that is afforded to you or you could end up like me with one size too small
