Washable Half helmet suggestions - September 16, 2016, 10:17 AM

I'm looking for a half helmet / brain bucket that doesn't have water absorbing pads and I could just rinse off the inside.

Background: I take a motorcycle to get to rec. league soccer games. After playing, my head is all sweaty. Currently, I'll wait to cool off and put on a balaclava / face mask thing before putting on my full face helmet for the way home. If there were no helmet law, I would go the short distance home without a helmet and just be really careful (hey, I've got life insurance ). However, it's in DC, there are cops everywhere, so I need something that at least looks legal.


Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Peter

Just get a cheap DOT approved half helmet and call it a day. Your other option is to wash the pads every so often.

Get a bicycle multi-sport hardshell. Something like a Fox Transition.

It'll look like a half shell M/C helmet while giving you plenty of air movement and vents. It's designed to get sweaty and be cleaned out.

Better than wearing nothing. More protection than a brain bucket with no padding.

Do this, and then buy a DOT sticker on ebay.


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.
