It is what it is...

I was looking for a low profile helmet that don't look like a mushroom on your head. Well this one does. And it sits on your ears really funny. You either have to tuck them in or have them bent outwards.

Awful

I gave it away, because I was so unhappy with the construction of it... Wasn't even worth the effort to send back... Ended up buying an entirely different helmet...

Finish fading

I purchased the Skid Lid Flat Black half helmet about a year ago and have used it was my main drive around town lid. The problem, the flat black finish has deteriorated to the point that the helmet is now sticky and collects dust, pollen and leaves a sticky residue on my cycle gloves or worse my bare hands if I touch the top while wearing it. The price was good, the fit is ok, but the finish has me shopping for a new helmet. One last thought, the style does leave a little to be desired. I was looking for a low profile design, but the Skid Lid sticks out quite a bit and I have had my kids say I look like a mushroom.

good helmet and price

the straps are a little long and you did get a bit of mushroom head, its not as small as I expected but I would still recommend the helmet and it is DOT certified.

Good light weight helmet, I prefer the smaller straps that it has. But it still gives me a bit of a mushroomhead.

Bare bones helmet

It's cheap and it'll pass helmet laws I gave it 4 stars on durability because after two years the rubber molding started to lift. But my helmet has seen lots of rain and cold weather so that may be a contributing factor. I'd buy it a again for sure.

Nice looking helmet

Love the chrome helmet looks and fits great and great price better than the $150 other helmet that the sales person said that's the one half an hour later after wearing it had a headache so that's why this one is great!

Good price and quality, I did not like the way it fit too high on my head, I bought a GMax GM45 Naked Half Helmet similar price and quality much better fit for me.

Nice basic helmet

I bought this helmet for warmer weather when I don't want to suffocate in my full face. It has basic protection and obviously won't do a lot to protect you in a bad accident, but it covers the necessities. Since it is DOT rated, it still makes you look kinda mushroom-y, but not terribly bad. Great helmet for the price-point.

straps in wrong position

The helmet fit and finish was great except for the straps coming together over my ears, felt very annoying and rubbed on my ears constantly. Kept the lid for my grandson to wear, fits his profile just fine.
