They look awesome, but I wonder how they feel, how heavy they are, and if they are street legal in the US.

I actually own one of these helmets...suckas. Only without the custom paint

Bandit XXR in matt black, with dark smoke visor

You should see the looks i get when i wear it too
I ordered it direct from the German maker, and cost me around 400.
I have never seen another helmet like mine in person, and that just makes it worth it

Oh, and the fit and quality is awesome. Extremely light too

I had a Simpson Bandit about 15 years ago. White with the black visor. Looks great but bl00dy awful on a bike. Noisy, heavy and poor field of vision. Worth remembering that they are CAR helmets not bike helmets and have different crash protection properties. Very expensive too. Only worth it if you`ve got a hard-on for Darth Vader, otherwise save your money and buy a skull facemask for 30 bucks.
