VCAN V531 Cruiser Solid Gloss Black Large Half Helmet Review

Half helmets look great on any cruiser motorcycle, let alone Harleys. Whether you are a weekend rider, daily commute rider or a beginner rider, your motorcycle helmet is the most important motorcycle accessory that you are going to buy. Here is a review of VCAN V531 Cruiser Solid Gloss Black Large Half Helmet which is a top quality yet cheap motorcycle half helmet which can be used by men and women motorcycle riders.

Safety features of VCAN V531 Cruiser Solid Gloss Black Large Half Helmet

Like any other motorcycle helmet, safety comes first when we talk about the pros or cons of the VCAN half helmet. The V531 features a shell that is made from ABS Thermoplastic resin. This motorcycle helmet review promises not to sound like a dodgy sales act and hence you should also know that this VCAN half helmet has the inheriting design risks that any other 1/2 helmet has. It does not have a face shield nor does it offer the full protection of a full motorcycle helmet or a ¾ helmet. The VCAN V531 has a nylon chin strap which is secured by double D rings to keep the helmet. You should also know that the VCAN V531 comes with a removable visor. So if you are the kind of motorcycle who's worried about getting dirt, insects or other elements in your eye while riding, you can simply screw in the removable visor and say goodbye to that worry.

Comfort features of VCAN V531 Cruiser Solid Gloss Black Large Half Helmet

You don't need to be the best motorcycle rider in the world to know that a comfortable motorcycle helmet can make or break your riding pleasure. For starters, half helmets are a pleasure to put on because they weigh much less than a full face helmet. The interiors of the helmet are lined with comfortable padding.

Styling of VCAN V531 Cruiser Solid Gloss Black Large Half Helmet

The VCAN 531 is probably not the helmet you are looking for if you ride a sports bike or a superbike. But if you ride or ride pillion on a superbike or a classic, the VCAN 531 half helmet tops the style meter in just about every sense. The minimalistic design and solid black color of this ½ helmet will look great on any motorcycle leather gear. Picture yourself cruising down the streets of your neighborhood wearing this ½ VCAN helmet and you will see yourself cruising with the wind in your hair and freedom in your mind. Add to your look by donning a black leather jacket, denims and black boots and you've got yourself a picture perfect moment!

Verdict

Overall, the VCAN V531 Cruiser Solid Gloss Black Large Half Helmet fits the bill if you are a rider who is looking for a stylish yet affordable motorcycle helmet to keep you safe on the road. This helmet can be a unisex helmet because it is not too aggressive and the solid black design of the VCAN 531 helmet gives it a generic, yet stunning appeal. Yes, the ½ helmet does score a bit low on safety when compared to its full face or ¾ counterparts, but like all good things in life, you can't have everything. So if you are looking for a stylish motorcycle helmet for your daily commutes, short cruises and a bold fashion statement, the VCAN V531 Cruiser Solid Gloss Black Large Half Helmet is your best buy.

No, I didn't- I never felt comfortable on motorcycles. I felt too exposed for such speeds.

You're right. That feeling of 'being exposed' that you get while riding a motorcycle is like feeling naked. Unlike a car, there's no privacy, no room to move around and no room to hide. I find a pillion ride very refreshing, relaxing and a great way to unwind. Talking about which, full face helmets are a bit annoying because you can't talk with each other (rider & pillion) and that's why this hub about the VCAN half helmet.
