In addition, the helmet comes with different shading for your eyes. The shield may either be clear, chrome and light smoke.

The shell is made of a lightweight composite shell. It’s inside padding is lined with COOLMAX brand lining. This ultra-moist reducing fabric allows your head to breathe inside the helmet. It keeps you cool by providing a comfortable and breathable airspace without having those wet and sticky sweat sopping your face. It comes with removable and washable cheek pads to easily handle the common foul manly smell of a helmet. Aside from this comfort lining, the protective ability of this helmet is provided with a ‘FreeStop’ shield pivot system, in other words, it’s tight on any angle making sure your head is intact against any impact. And because of this system the Bandit Helmet is definitely shock-absorbent.
