Shape and materials

The outer shell of this helmet is quite slim and super light. It’s made of composite fiber and carbon fiberglass. It has quality brass fittings and a liner of Merlin anti-bacterial fabric that looks and feels like soft suede. It also has a natural plush, fine calf leather trim and lining. It has Hed Armor lining with 360-degree cushion padding. 

It has a Copper Hedon plate with copper-plated hardware and a copper-plated DD buckle. Some helmets have that unpleasant alien space helmet look, but the Hedon Hedonist helmet looks more tailor-made to your head. They come in several different sizes ranging from xs to XXL.

Overall comfort

The overall comfort of the Hedonist Helmet is quite nice. It has comfortable padding inside and around the ears. There’s a soft suede liner to the inside of the helmet lining and on the chin strap for better comfort. It also makes for a cool sensation on the head so you won’t sweat too much in the helmet. 

There’s a soft nylon strap with a double D-ring fastening for a more secure fit. This way you won’t have to worry about your helmet coming off while it stays comfortably secured on your head.

Visibility

The visibility of this Hedonist Helmet is great with a full line of vision. It has a field of vision so wide you can’t even see the helmet once it’s on. It allows you to wear sunglasses without getting caught in the visor. The padding inside doesn’t even push against the glasses frames, so your glasses can stay unbothered in this helmet. The screen doesn’t fog up nor does it scratch easily. 

Quietness

Things I liked

  • This finished quality is second to none.
  • There is a wide range of colors.
  • The overall fit is very comfortable.
  • The style looks very cool.

Things I don’t like

  • The visor would pretty much have to be removed or just down the whole time.
  • If you decide to get the raw finish on the metals then they may end up tarnishing.
  • The lining is neither removable nor washable.

The Hedonist Helmet is very quiet and makes little to no noise. 

Ventilation

The Hedon Hedonist Helmet has a 3 channel ventilation system.

Safety

When it comes to helmets, safety is one of the main concerns. Some people avoid wearing open-face helmets because of safety reasons. However, open-face helmets come with many primary safety advantages. Some advantages include:

  • Being lighter and less fatiguing.
  • Cooler in style and in temperature.
  • Having a wider field of vision.
  • Fewer fogging problems.
  • Become more alert to traffic sounds. 

It is DOT and ECE certified, but not SNELL or SHARP certified. It has full ECE 22.05 certification.

Conclusion

Overall, the Hedon Hedonist Helmet is very acceptable. The outer shell’s materials and lining make for great durability. The wide selection of sizes and colors makes for many style and comfort possibilities. The full line of vision allows for the helmet to have great visibility. It’s extremely quiet and has many safety advantages. The few cons that come with this helmet can easily be overseen by its many features. All in all, this helmet exceeds its expectations.
