    No more helmet hair

    I read of this interesting product today. I realize I do not have hair but it may extend the life of helmet linings by adding additional air space. Anyone using this?

    I'm intrigued. But I'd have to try before I buy. I can't see how there is room for this inside a properly fitted helmet. And I'm not sold on the comfortability.

    ÔÇó Stabilizes helmet position & improves the fit of loose fitting helmets


    ÔÇó Retains and enhances old and tired helmet linings.


    These two bullet points tell me that the wearer needs to replace their helmet and find someone to help properly fit them for a new one.

    I wear my helmet hair proudly as a badge of honour. It goes well with my filthy riding gear.

    I agree with those questioning the 'fit' in a proper 'fitting' helmet?

    And I would think it would be annoying as all hell, when side winds,etc, set up helmet buffeting?..........think I'll pass.

    I ain't all that purrity anywho,..so my hair is the least of my concern...not be sexist,but I'd say it's targeted to the ladies?

    I didn't even look. Pomade, or whatever, I don't even need it.
    I just use a close crop and none of it's long enough to stand up funny.
    If your helmet liner is worn out, get a new liner. Most of the good helmets, you can get all the parts for, new liner, etc.
    If it's too big, or moves at all, it's too big, and should be replaced with one that fits utterly ultra close.

    Aww you naysayers! Just think of the scalp massage while riding down a rough gravel road.

    I wouldn't mind trying it - especially for going to work. I often get off the bike and go immediately into Telepresence or Video Conference meetings with execs who don't necessarily understand the motorcycle mystique. It might help - and I don't want to go to a number 1 buzz cut since my SO has told me my head is a 'weird' shape so I better hang onto as much hair as possible to hide it. I'm sure it won't cost me as much as a deer whistle or a rare earth magnet - both of which did NOT live up their performance billing - guess i am a sucker by nature.

    I think you glue that to the shower floor so you don't fall.
