    What kind of helmet is this?

    What kind of helmet is this?


    Backstory:
    I saw this guy in Garmisch, Germany, last September 11th (the last race of our mtb season.) He was bad ass and every lap he was handed a beer by his significant other which he slammed without even stopping. He was the only guy on an SS and I think he finished like 3rd.

    that's an old-school cinelli leather hairnet helmet, slightly better than a cycling cap for for protecting your noggin.

    Have a ball, its discounted to 17 dollars. Just in case you are curious, it is found in the "accessories" section, not the "helmet" section.

    I read somewhere recently that those are still legal in some European races that require helmets; it looks to have been legal in this race. One curious place I saw a hairnet helmet a few years ago was on a Harley motorcycle rider, during a time when Texas motorcycle helmet laws were a little ambiguous.

    That wouldn't include UCI races.

    Yeah, that's just the local (Germany/Italy) podunk military series I race in. The rules just say 'a helmet'.

    My dad's got one of those fake "half-shell" helmets with a DOT sticker because of the helmet law in PA...I told him he should wear a real one, but you can't tell him anything. He's one of those damn Harley guys.

    Hmmmm...

    I wonder, if you were to combine the protective powers of a leather hairnet and a cycling cap if you'd have yourself a real helmet on your hands?

    there is no helmet law in PA; he can ditch the plastic-german helmet altogether.
