The GUNER Helmet
The GUNER Helmet
Bonehead Composites  (5308 Hits)

And you didn't think we could improve on the most popular composite helmet in skydiving… The GUNER from BoneHead Composites (Pronounced like "GUNNER") is the most recent addition to the BoneHead family of products. One of the first things you'll notice about the GUNER when you first put it on is how quiet it is. The next thing you'll notice is the smooth curves and smooth styling of the helmet shell finished off with a Fastex buckled chin strap and leather covered chin strap. We listened to our customers and developed the GUNER to meet all of your expectations. You wanted semi-flexible, smooth curves, quiet and enough room to put at least 2 audibles on the inside of the helmet.... AND YOU GOT IT with our new GUNER helmet! The GUNER comes standard with BH's ingenious Thermal-Fit liner, Fastex chin-strap closure and the great finish quality that you have come to expect from BoneHead.

This helmet is just OK 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: taurusfall2004, 2012-01-11

I bought this helmet after having a pro-tec right after graduation. First, the helmet is A LOT lighter and quiter than low end helmets. Also, the carbon fiber looks cool and seems pretty strong. On the other hand, the strap could not be any cheaper. I caught myself checking the strap as part of my pre jump checks since is so cheap. I never really feels secure. Next is were I really experienced my issues. The customer service for Bonehead is nothing short of HORRIBLE. I was given directions to back the helmet for a custom fit when I bought it. I gave the helmet to my GF who wanted to bake it for herself so I call customer service for the directions. The woman who picked up the phones claimed to be an owner of the company and was nothing short of rude. Her response was "why would you want to bake it",and made me feel stupid for even calling about it. She had such a bad attitude I refuse to support Bonehead. God forbid I had a real issue, I doubt it would get resolved by them. Long story short. If you are going to spend the 200+ dollars. I suggest getting a low end Tonfly helmet. They are closly priced and have WAY BETTER materials. The helmet is not bad but the customer service and materials are CRAP!!!

I love this helmet, I'm a beginner and it's so comfortable and quiet..I haven't even bothered to bake it either. It sticks out a little on the sides and makes me look like snoopy but I can deal with it

Bonehead Guner -- Good helmet, could be better 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: fencebuster, 2008-01-21

I bought my Guner after 6 jumps and I immediately noticed the difference in free fall. It was much quieter than the student helmest provided by the DZ. The fit was good and I never baked it. My model has the newer chin strap and it is very secure. The finish was a bit of a disappointment -- as a student, every non-stand-up landing seems to leave a mark on the exterior. I had a run in with a fence and a very hard landing in which my third point of contact with the ground was my head, and the helmet was very durable and protected me from injury -- clearly a good thing. Overall, I am very satisfied, but the manufacturer should do something to make the exterior finish more durable.
