Shark Frenzy

Shark truly goes above and beyond in putting their riders first. This continues to be shown through their helmets and more recently in the two newest additions to the Shark Evoline 3 series: Moov’Up and Arona.The new helmets feature a quick chin bar release system, noise and sound reduction, improved ventilation and a easily removable and washable liner. The visor is also equipped with anti-scratch and anti-fog treatment. However, one of the most unique features that these helmets have to offer is the planned SHARKTOOTH location which gives you the option of installing the SHARKTOOTH technology. SHARKTOOTH is Shark’s very own Motorbike Wireless Entertainment System which comes with an array of awesomeness like a Bluetooth hands free kit for your cell phone, a bike to bike intercom system with other SHARKTOOTH riders, audio information from your bike’s Bluetooth GPS navigator and stereo Bluetooth A2DP music streaming. Lastly, the Moov’Up and Arona come in a variety of colors suitable for every rider.

Arai XD-3 Luster - Orange

The Arai XD-3 Luster includes the following features:

XD means “Crossover Design” because it crosses over into so many riding styles. You can quickly and easily change it for adventure touring, dual-sport, Supermoto competition, commuting, whatever. Visually, it looks like a dirt helmet, with its peak, protruding chin bar and the opening for goggles. But the XD Series also has a full faceshield like a street helmet, a faceshield that easily slides up under the peak. And you can remove the shield and/or the peak in no time, and then easily re-install either or both whenever you like. The XD Series. Uniquely functional. Uniquely Arai. And now, when others are introducing their first XD “copies,” Arai is already taking you to the next level with the brand new XD3.

  • High-flow peak channels air directly into the front vents
  • Twin-cam Shield Pivot System allows the face shield to operate fully under a peak that can be lowered for better aerodynamics. Can be configured with shield and peak, peal only (for use with goggles) or shield only
  • Fully Removable/Replaceable and washable liner with optional sizes available for custom fit
  • 4 top vents. Dual Intake/Dual Exhaust Ventilation-dual I/C top intake vents and Double Delta bridged exhaust bents designed to draw significant volumes of air from helmet interior
  • CLC (Complex Laminate Construction) shell-fiberglass composite is stronger and lighter-allows use of softer, less-dense liner materials inside for increased rider comfort
  • Efficient chinbar vent (with Interior and exterior controls) flows fresh air to the mouth area or across the shield interior to help prevent fogging
  • Large chinbar side exhaust vents draw out additional hot air
  • Meets or exceeds Snell and DOT standards
  • The peak/visor supplied is not suitable for high-speed use where air striking a side or main surface of the peak may cause difficulty in returning the head to a forward and/or level position

The Modular Snow Helmet you’ve been waiting for!

You’ve read about our snowmobile helmets; you’ve read about our flip-up modular helmets, but you haven’t read about our snowmobile modular helmets. You get the great features of having a motorcycle helmet designed for harsh, cold snowy conditions as well as the modular ease of a flip-up motorcycle helmet. No more tossing and turning at night thinking about whether an above satisfactory modular snowmobile helmet exists! Have no fear, the motorcycle connoisseurs are here!

The most popular helmet that Helmet City has to offer with these great features is the HJC CL-MAX Snowmobile Helmet. You might be wondering what makes this snowmobile any better than a regular snowmobile helmet? Well, are you in for a treat. The biggest attractions to the HJC CL-Max Snowmobile Helmet is the dual paned shield, the breath box and of course the ease of the modular design.

Snowmobile Gear is Here!

Helmet City recently updated their inventory to include snowmobile helmets and snowmobile accessories. We offer a variety of different snowmobile helmets, modeled after their successful street motorcycle helmet models and several new designs of snowmobile helmets as well.

The HJC Snow CL-15 is helmet modeled after the ever so popular HJC CL-15 motorcycle helmet which received much success and acceptance from the rider community.

At first glance we see two very similar helmets, and there are definite similarities. But we’re more interested in the differences these two helmets offer. HJC has brought you the graphics you know and love but made them snow ready. If you own a motorcycle and currently are sporting a CL-15 motorcycle helmet and you’re saying to yourself… “I’m really interested in becoming an intense snowmobile rider, but I don’t really want to give up my motorcycle helmet.” Well, you don’t have to. You can have the same exact style and brand but the comfort of a snowmobile helmet. Don’t settle for using your motorcycle helmet when you can have the custom comfort of a helmet designed specifically for snowmobile riders.

Here’s some of the HJC CL-15 Cyclonce motorcycle helmet features:

**Injection-Molded Polycarbonate Composite Shell Construction

**Flow-Through “ACVS” Advanced Channeling Ventilation System

**Anti-Fog System

**Next Generation, 2 Stage Compression Shield Closure System

**Removable / Washable Nylex Interior

**Nylon strap retention snap

 

Now, let’s check out some of the HJC CL-15 Cyclonce Snowmobile Helmet features:

**Advanced Polycarbonate Composite Shell

**AccuSight Anti-fog Faceshield

**RapidFire Double Lens Shield Replacement System

**2-stage Shield Closure Mechanism

**“ACS” Advanced Channeling Ventilation System

**Plush, Nylex Interior

**SNELL/DOT Approved

So don’t let us catch you with a motorcycle helmet in the snow. Not only does it not work the same, it’s not nearly the kind of comfort and warmth you deserve from your helmet!

Helmet City also offers several great snowmobile accesories to keep you warm and safe in the snow: Jacket, Gloves, Boots and Heated Apparel. It may be below zero outside but there is no reason it has to feel like it!
