  • Helmet Help !

    I have decided that i want to go leather, and i have narrowed my search to two helmets.
    THe New Yorker or The Houston. I was wondering if any of you guys could give me some pros and cons on each. Thanks For the help.

    The only difference is that the Houston has a puncture resistant feature in it's impact cap and the New Yorker doesn't. I have a New Yorker and I think that it's a great helmet. Granted mine is has no impact cap, it's good just the same. Both are going to give you great protection but the New Yorker is a few dollars cheaper than the Houston. Save yourself a few bucks and go with the New Yorker.

        Depends on whether or not you take out the rachet and sponge. Check through the forums, this topic has been discussed thoroughly. You should be able to find the answers to all your questions. Take care.

          You have to be really careful when you buy it , check with your company SOPs and find out whats allowd and whats not allowd. Many departments won't allow the New Yorker because it is not NFPA certified, granted it does have OSHA, but many departments require NFPA. the Houston is NFPA and they don't look all the much different, just becareful you don't get burned by the system.
