    Why not, stronger than a bike helmet, right? But possibly overkill with a weight penalty. Not that I'm a weight weenie, but I like to keep stuff light if my neck needs to hold it up (there's a joke there somewhere).

    $19.99 motorcycle helmet?

    Are you planning on using it to protect your head if you trip while walking or actual high speed?

    i have a skydiving helmet that i also use for longboarding


    sorry for the big second picture =/

    that's me in the first one, but i have a visor. it weighs 600 grams.
    i know many people who've taken a fall on them going faster than i normally cycle, and they work.

    i plan on using it for riding sometime soon to see how it works out. theyre fairly expensive though

    Not really, at least for motorcycling. It could probably take a hit at 15-20 (biking speeds), but for real motorcycling Snell certification is much more meaningful.

    A proper motorcycle helmet will have a lot more bulk and will run you a hell of a lot more $$$ then that. It will also be Snell certified as well.

    I would imagine that the visibility is terrible. I used to rock a CCM helmet. Now that was confidence. These days I have a Bell Scuffle.
    Mine is the yellow one.

    stylish, and even better for those 'ulock justice' moments.

    edit: and it matches your gold chain and cranks.

    I was going to get a Toronto Blue Jays batting helmet. Would have been so funny.

    Hot, heavy, but if you were riding in cold weather I could see a use for a full face helmet. BUT, in slow speed crashes, (slow speed for a motorcycle 25 or less) motorcycle helmets can cause injuries due to their excess stiffness designed for harder higher speed impacts.
    Not too much to say here
