Until materials change dramatically, a DOT approved helmet is always going to give you a certain amount of the dreaded "mushroom head". This is due to DOT's "cushioning" requirements. Hitting your head on the pavement isn't just a matter of your helmet keeping your head from cracking open - your head is still sloshing around in it and the padding keeps the helmet from simply transferring that sudden shock from it's plastic surface to your calcium based skull. Carbon fiber novelty helmets are extremely low profile and are made from the same exterior stuff that your DOT approved brain bucket is - it's just got a lot less padding. That said, the differences are often bemoaned but seldom compared. I've tried to do just that with the picture I've attached comparing the Skid Lid Original Solid Helmet with an extremely well reviewed (but not sold on Amazon) carbon-fiber helmet. If you take a look at the two, the difference, in my humble opinion, is minimal. Certainly so little that the choice to have the added protection of a DOT approved helmet shouldn't be hard to make. Especially if the unthinkable happens and you find yourself going down the hard way.

I'm a survivor of a extremely serious motorcycle accident and I credit my relative lack of extreme injury to my wearing a helmet. You owe it to your loved ones to reasonably gear yourself with protective equipment you feel comfortable with. I've worn the carbon fiber helmet and loved it. There's been other times I was glad to have my bulkier Skid Lid on. I also have a Scorpion EXO-1100 Full Face Helmet that I've taken to wearing on the rare occasion I have to face my So Cal commute during the Rush-Hour Rodeo. Wear whatever makes you feel safe; the choice of what that is, is up to you.

I hate full faced and even open faced helmets. Nobody wants to be in a wreck, especially on a motorcycle. But in my book, having my ears completely covered and muffled is a good way to get into trouble. Which is why I'm a fan of Half Helmets, German Helmets & the like! Now having said that, This is a sturdy, well made helmet. That would probably offer you decent upper cranium coverage if you take a spill on your scoot.

Some people will negatively review this because they have "mushroom head" Yeah, I can see that. It's not as bad as some helmets I've owned. However, that doesn't mean it's a bad helmet. Just means some people have a vanity issue. The helmet is light, comfortable, and protective.

Bottom Line.

If you want a DOT approved minimal helmet, go for this.

If you just want a helmet that looks sleek against your skull, go buy a novelty helmet.

Helmet is great, but has no button to fasten after tightening .Also has two stickers that are hard to get off and leaves gooy crap on it that I had to use goof off to get it off.Had to sew velcro on strap to keep from flapping in the wind.But It fits and looks good.

This will do, good enough for me and the short/moderate scooter trips I take.

Fit: Shape is an intermediate oval, so make sure you wouldn't be better suited with a round or long-oval shaped helmet. Right out of the box, the lining seems to be well made and is moderately comfortable for what is a fairly heavy helmet. Also the XL runs true to size, manufacturer's sizing chart is accurate. Does it "mushroom"? Well, yes, but with an inch and a half of protective material all the way around, I don't know how a DOT helmet could look otherwise.

Seller: Shipped reasonably fast, only complaint is that the price tag on the helmet was held on with a cheap adhesive; peeling it off made a mess. Not a big deal on a white helmet but would be an eyesore on black. The "Skid Lid" sticker peeled off easily.

It does not give you the full effect of Mushroom head but it does not totally eliminate it either. Definitely way more low profile then most half helmets I've tried on. Very comfortable too. Nice half helmet that looks good, feels secure, and is DOT approved.

the only complaint i might have is if i look very closely on the both sides of the helmet there is a very tiny spot on either side in about the same place (which makes me think it's an application issue... ) where i see little bubbles in the chrome. I noticed it but no one else would be able to see unless they were examining the helmet. My concern is, will this be one of the spots the chrome starts to peel in the future????...
As for now i am very delicate with it's handling and very aware of these two spots when i wipe it down... so far there has been no changes to the areas I've mentioned, we'll see what happens throughout the summer. then i may update my review but as of today i like the helmet...

Great helmet. I have two of these. I personally don't think they give mushroom head like others think. Besides, it's going to stick off your head a little anyways... it's a helmet after all. Comfortable fit and works well for me.
