New Helmet Bonehead AERO Can't Post

Bonehead has come out with a new full face called the AERO. Here are a few pictures and there are more on their FB page. I will post a review once I get a chance to jump the helmet!

Pretty cool looking helmet. The buckle looks like the one I was thinking about modding for a G3.

Is that a cutaway chinstrap as a standard feature?

Yes, it's a webbing tab attached to the buckle. Just pull to release. It's standard.

Looks like the bastard stepchild of the G2 and the Phantom X. Laugh

Seriously, though, I'm intrigued to take a look at one of these - looks like a nice new addition to the full face market, and I think it's great that a cutaway is being included in the base design.

Have any kicking around the shop? Wouldn't mind swinging by some time to take a look. In the market to replace my Revolve.

Hey BH,

Looks like a great product - nice job!

From the photos I cant see ventilation on the helmet (or is the 'aero' pertaining only to weight Wink ) How will it do in hot weather (Dubai)?

Thanks and blue skies,
Chris

The helmet will do fine. I don't have any holes planned for the shell currently. We can add a couple to the back of the shell and adjust the liner to add some air flow if need be.

Are you planning to sell those cutaway chinstraps as a separate product? Would be a nice addition to my current helmets.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's been floating around for motorcycle helmets for a while. Hard to pin down a supplier for them that isn't some bulk thing from China, I got a couple off of ebay (just an example, this is not the seller I used) to play around with.

405 is the standard price. A certain amount of preorders will be discounted cheaper than that,

Thank you for the reply, BH.

I hope you would consider a "summer" version with solid ventilation for hot months/climates (something the C6 Air tried to do, but failed to get to production).

Are you planning a sony action cam mount?

Thanks and blue skies,
Chris

Kind regards,
Chris

I've ordered similar ones from aliexpress.com for my G3. Even on product page photos they does not look very well crafted.

This looks really interesting. Sounds like it tries to shore the places the G3 has some work to do.

Love the ideas of the following:

- Manufacturer included cutaway system on a full face designed for the small form factor action cams.

- That others can see you're entire face (I often "talk" to others, I know they can lip read "arch!")

- Field of vision, although my G3 is awesome there

- Built-in camera mount, although might be a challenge for tunnel use

I want one but have to try it on. Good work!!

Found out its going to look a little different. Guess the plan is not to show the carbon fiber in the middle.

Any plans for an XXL size, for those of us with swollen head syndrome (62cm/24.5" circumference)??

What is the weight?

Is it going to be a wider fit? I got rid of my G3 because it was too narrow ear to ear and a little too long front to back.

I kinda like the carbon showing in the back.
Hopefully it will come in a bare bones option of all carbon, then you can paint it how you want.
