Chad Hodge Bullitt Helmets

Received this email from Chad Hodge.

"I am a recent graduate of the industrial design program at the University of Cincinnati and for my thesis I designed a retro full face helmet. The idea came about when I went to purchase a new full face helmet and I couldnt find anything that wasnt styled to look like it belonged with a crotch rocket. I ride a 1978 Yamaha XS1100 and wanted something that would at least attempt to match that aesthetic. There are plenty of vintage half helmets out there, but after a buddy got his face saved by his full face, I dont wear anything but. Its currently just a show model, but I am interested in trying to get it prototyped."

the proportions of this design are great and the combination of the Bubble Visor with a full face helmet is super cool. the details on the helmet are amazing. the leather strap, the air-holes, the interior etc. are spectacular.

at the moment everyday around 1000 people visit this site.
