    Good job! <>>>> Dainese Raptor helmet

    Well I just got my helmet and it's way light and sturdy. It even has some crazy chip in the back! Does anyone know what that is for?

    It's to look cool. Aren't those helmets still fiberglass? Just done up to look like carbon fiber?

    Uhm.... That's what fiberglass looks like dude. Carbon fiber is grey/black and slightly reflective.

    Either way I think the raw finnish looks cool.

    I know what fiberglass looks like... I lay speaker enclosures. You can see bits of black showing through, and some guy at the local spot tried to pass it off as carbon fiber.

    It's a super comfie helmet. Lightweight and cool.

    The day after I bought it, I took a solid head slam when I nose-cased a step up. My head hit so hard, I saw stars. Hardest head shot I've taken. I'm still healing up.

    Anyway, the helmet cracked in a few places. Hard to know if I bought an expensive helmet that saved my a**, or if I bought an expensive helmet that cracked first time it was used.

    For the record, I bought a new TLD helmet for DH runs, but I patched the Dainese using fiberglass and epoxy. I use it for trailrides, like Downieville this weekend.

    I just couldn't convince myself that buying a new Dainese made any sense.

    Hey, that's cool! It looks like bone.
    Maybe the chip is for subliminal thoughts.
