A Retro Look that Features Modern Technology

   The more and more we travel on two wheels, it seems we run into an increasing amount of areas that require a helmet. No matter what your feelings are in the subject, we can all agree on one thing, we want our helmet to be as unique as the bike we pilot. At K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) we carry a large selection of helmets with enough character to fill a clown car. Best of all, these helmets are produced with some of the most cutting edge technology, and meet or exceed DOT standards.

   I want to focus today on the 3/4 shell Retro Helmet. These helmets come in a variety of colors and finishes and often have some type of striping applied to them. For example, take a look at the Daytona Cruiser Helmet from Daytona Helmets.

   This helmet meeCpt America DC6-CA3ts and exceeds D.O.T. FMVSS 218 Standards and happens to be the smallest D.O.T. 3/4 Shell Helmet Ever Made! Boasting 3 different shell sizes, you’re sure to get that proportionate fit! Each graphic helmet is custom designed and may vary slightly in color or composition. This is the closest you can get to an air-brushed or custom painted helmet. This Daytona Cruiser 3/4 Helmet has a clear UV Coated finish and comes inside a cloth draw string helmet bag. Keeping with simplicity, this helmet is only available with a black bubble visor. For added convenience, a free head wrap is included with every helmet. Sizes range from XS-2XL. This model of helmet is available in 3 eye catching graphic designs.

   Another cPrimer-and-grey-flame-3-4-Hompany that has Retro 3/4 helmets available is Hot Leathers. Their D.O.T. Open Face Helmet is a Low Profile open face helmet. What you get when you purchase one of these great helmets is: A matte finish delivering good looks and makes clean up a breeze. DOT approved helmets are manufactured in accordance with the latest technology and safety standards and are specifically designed for motorcycling. They meet or exceed DOT standards for every U.S. state. While the helmet shells are constructed of an extremely durable ABS Thermoplastic resin, an impact-absorbent inner liner and inner comfort padding provides extra protection and the perfect fit. The use of noise-reducing ear flaps easily accommodate blue tooth devices or headphone ear buds. Underneath is a fully adjustable chin strap with heavy-duty D-ring fasteners that gives you a snug, secure fit. Snap buttons on either side of open face models make it easy to attach the included visor or an optional face shield. For maximum safety; your helmet should fit comfortably snug. When cleaning your new helmet; never use solvents; petrol or other detergents. Use only neutral soap and water to clean the shell and inner padding. Wipe clean with a soft cloth or brush. Open air dry. This will keep your helmet looking great for years.
