i finally found a helmet that fits great and looks great. it sits low and doesnt look like a mushroom plus its comfortable on a long ride. Skull Crush isnt a DOT and not to get into a debate about DOT helmets but read about them and make your own decision. they are pricey but most of us have bought several trying to find the one we would actually wear. if You do get one get 1 size larger. trust me it will save you time but they do exchange for different sizes of the same thing. they do have a Dot 3/4 shell thats is pretty cool too
