Having a helmet custom sprayed
on: 18 Nov 20, 08:52:54
Was thinking of getting a graphic design for my helmet, but  unsure of who or where to take it to get it put on helmet. (somewhere like fiver for the design would cost around £30)

Not sure if it can be printed on from a file, or would it have to be sprayed/painted on?

Helmet I'm thinking of trying out first is the Scorpion Exo 1400 Carbon Air.

Anyone done any thing like this?

Maybe try a place that does vehicle wrapping?

Off on a slight tangent, how do you find that helmet for noise and quality. I quite fancy one but cant find antwhere near me to try one on. I was going to get one online but cant really tell by just trying it on at home. Thanks

Its not the quietest, but not the worst either, it is extremely light, which also means its thin, so outside noise like engines  etc come through, though its good on wind noise which is great.

Need to reiterate how light it is, you could almost forget you wearing it, the lightness makes a huge difference.

(I'm not sure any carbon helmet is ever going to be the quietest)

Thanks I think I will order one to try. I will get the wife to blast her hair dryer at me to check for wind noise and buffeting, it's probably more powerful than the leaf blower.

Once you gave one you will surprised how little you feel it on, you always aware of it, as it’s in your vision, but just feel feather light.

The downside is trying to buy a non carbon one in the future.
