I asked one of my riding buddies does my helmet look like I'm rocking one of those lame ass mo hawks, then with a little hesitation he said....ummm.....KINDA. So I'm gonna put it out there to see what the general public thinks...

First I love the helmet it fits great, and the fin on top is cause it's a Troy Lee Designs edition of the helmet and it surprisingly keeps my head more stable in a tuck at high speeds....of course the chrome which I didn't like at first, but then it grew on me and kinda breaks up my all black suit, Of course I have other helmets to wear but Just wondering if I should retire this one if people are gonna mistake me for wearing a mo hawk.

I think it looks tight, Its not a mowhawk, it doesnt flap in the wind and look stupid like a mowhawk does.

Nothing wrong with fins, Ive got 2 on mine, so does wifey. our helmets are unique and arent seen on every person riding a gsxrs helmet in shorts and flip flops

If I say yes will you give it to me? Lol It's definitely not something you see everyday which I like. I'd rock it as is but would prefer different colors.

Meh, i'd rock it, not a "look at me" as a mohawk, and GoPro mounted up top is almost worse now as cops are targeting those guys for "evidence"

Well first to me is its a safe lid that fits you well and you like it. That about sums it up really. We are all different, if YOU like, wear it man.

Aaahhh yeurika! I saw a squid in tennis shoes, Jensen, and a wife beater t-shirt, with an all black helmet with these ridiculous large vents on top...... I wasn't sure if it was "home brew" or purchased it that way, now I know it was an Icon...


Just saying....


Actually his looked even larger than yours to be honest, but that might have been the angle I saw him at....
