Street Legal Halo Master Chief Motorcycle Helmets

This is the Master Chief motorcycle helmet coming soon from NECA (National Entertainment Collectibles Association). It ships this June for an undisclosed amount of money (I suspect around a shit-ton) and meets or exceeds all Department of Transportation safety standards, which is important if you care about your head. If you don't care about your head you should become a crash test dummy. I remember in high school the career counselor told me I should be a human cannonball. Haha -- look at me now, Mrs. Hindman! A man with *looking around shithole apartment* a lot of regret he didn't take your advice.

Keep going for a couple more shots.

Thanks to lilco, who promised I could ride in the sidecar with a Ninja Turtle mask on and make vroom-vroom noises.

  • As someone who rides a motorcycle year round and has done so for the last two decades, I love this, but I see some potential problems.

    The first problem is the brim of the helmet will act as a wind catch and will constantly be pulling up and back on the helmet and cause neck strain. I'm assuming just above the visor that what looks like a black cutout is a vent to help counter some of this but the fact that the brim is so pronounced this could be somewhat problematic for long highway trips and such.

    Second it doesn't say anything about removable lining that is washable. This is incredibly important since your head is basically in a box and you sweat a lot so you need to be able to remove the inside lining and clean it from time to time.

    I'm gonna guess the selling price for these is going to be around $500 if not more, and there is no mention of the lining or who is going to make the helmets for them. Frankly there are some brands of helmets I wont go near because they are cheap junk and it worries me they are using one of the low end manufacturers to produce these on the cheap and the product itself will be an expensive piece of crap that looks awesome but lacks real world functionality.

    Which brings to mind why no one ever made a Samus helmet.
    This is papercraft, but c'mon look at how aerodynamic it would be! Know any shops that would make me a custom one? I looked but I'm not getting any luck

  • Plus, a lot of places don't allow tinted visors, and this would look crappy without one.

  • Ive lived in a lot of places and never knew there were regulations against tinted visors, interesting.

    Not to mention, can the visor even be removed to be replaced if something happens to it?

    I'm guessing not.

    Why would you need it to be removed? How would you know what your shield level is?
