Novelty Motorcycle Helmets

Novelty Motorcycle Helmets are described as a helmet that is similar in form to a motorcycle helmet designed for on-road use. But it is not certified by a manufacturer to meet the minimum safety performance requirements.

In general, non DOT compliant novelty helmets will not protect motorcycle riders during motorcycle crashes. They do not protect from either impact or penetration threats. They will most likely not be retained on motorcycle riders' heads during crashes.

Novelty helmets will help you look cool and will help give you that "biker" look. They are not the safest helmets on the market. Witchdoctors carries both DOT and non DOT novelty helmets. Check out or Daytona brand helmets.

Novelty Motorcycle Helmet Pros & Cons:

1. Unique Designs: These helmets come in various creative designs, allowing riders to express their individuality and personal style.
2. Customization Options: Customers can often find novelty helmets that can be customized with different graphics and colors, making them truly one-of-a-kind.
3. Lightweight: They are usually lighter than traditional helmets, offering a more comfortable riding experience.
4. Suitable for Short Trips: These helmets are ideal for short trips or parades where full protection may not be required, but headgear is still necessary.

1. Limited Protection: Novelty helmets may not offer the same level of protection and safety as full-face or DOT certified helmets. They often lack impact-absorbing padding and face shields.
2. Legality Issues: Depending on local laws, using novelty helmets may be against the law. They may not meet safety regulations for road use.
3. Noise and Wind: Due to their open-face design, these helmets do not provide as much noise reduction or wind resistance as full-face or modular helmets.
4. Weather Conditions: During adverse weather conditions, such as rain or cold, novelty helmets may not provide sufficient protection or comfort, as they lack features like visors or insulation.

Overall, novelty motorcycle helmets offer an opportunity for riders to stand out with unique designs and customization options. However, it's crucial to consider the potential limitations in terms of protection, legality, noise levels, and suitability for different weather conditions. Always check local laws and prioritize safety while choosing your motorcycle helmet.
