Finding a helmet is difficult

For modifying the Don Post helmet, adding the extras for a Crimson Empire helmet, as well as painting, padding, speakers, fans, etc.

Finding a helmet is difficult

Post by DARoss »

Good morning I am searching all over for a helmet. I am a big guy and I’m reading everyone’s posts and going to all these different sites and just not finding a helmet available. Is there anywhere that someone can suggest ? Thank you for your time , Dave

For a strong guy ( ;) ) , a Rubies would work. I'm 6'2 and 250 lbs with a fairly large head, and I have lots of room in mine. Way more that my new WTF shadow guard bucket. Finding one might be a bit of a challenge though. But not having to sand/paint/sand/sand again to make one, it's worth it lol!

Yeah we are about the same size I’m 6’3 and 270. I have been looking everywhere. I seem to only find ones from eBay that come from India. I’ve been looking for rubies or a Don. I didn’t think it would be this hard to locate one. But I do appreciate your response.

Have you tried Amazon, of all places?

I got a resin-cast helmet first, but it was way too small for me so I ended buying a Rubies ultimate from Amazon. I just had to replace the visor and add some fans and its served me well thus far.

I use a Rubies myself. 6'4" bigger guy. Aside from modifying the visor to have a little more airflow and adding some fans i've found it rather comfy. I also put some foam on the top/sides of the top to kind of cushion my head.

Another +1 for the Rubies, if you can find one. I also got mine off Amazon, but it's been a few years now. Just did a quick check and didn't see any currently, but doesn't mean they won't pop up from time to time. Maybe setup a search on Ebay?

I also switched out the visor, added fans and some foam and it fits great.

I had been eyeing the Anovos/Denuo Novo one, cause I like how it looks, but just couldn't justify the price. If I can ever find one at a discounted price, I still might try it out. But I have heard it's a tad smaller than the Rubies. I would love to do a comparison.
