I am trying to suprise the wife with a new helmet this year. She does not ride a lot with me and she uses my hand-me-downs from previous years.
I have noo idea how to look for a helmet that will fit properly and be comfy for her. ( I know she should just go out and try some on but i do not know what to ask her in regards to comfort and fit while she is trying them on)
I guess what i am asking you guys (and gals specially) is for a good full face lid that is cute and under $100 that should do the trick
How do you determine how a lid works for you at the store without being out on the road.
thanks in advance and I hope my post made some sense
Helmet purchases aren't something to be taken lightly. This is her life you are talking about. There is no other option than to have a helmet that fits properly. Believe me...if you, god forbid, should ever crash with her on it and she's injured b/c her helmet didn't fit properly...that would be absolutely terrible.
Take her to the shop...have her try on a every brand there. The helmet should be relatively tight...grab the chin bar when it's on her head and move it up and down and side to side. It should move...put pull her skin with it. Not excessively tight but not loose.
And finding a quality lid for under a benny is all but impossible. Look at the Scorpion lids. They are under 200 and very good quality.
