Hi-Viz Helmet from Scorpion (Would you wear it?)



Wondering if anyone would actually wear this. I definitely would buy it. I have an Olympia jacket similar in color to this, (but more of a hi-lighter yellow) and I think it makes a huge difference. When I ride with my blue/black leather jacket I notice that lots of cars pull out in front of me in intersections like they never saw me, but when I wear my hi-viz, those type of incidents are greatly reduced. I feel invisible when i ride without it. Only downside is that I am the butt of a number of jokes every day at work, like people telling me they saw me driving down the road, from 10 miles away. Or that they almost crashed because I blinded them.

Here is the original article.

I would definitely wear that helmet! I'd take the comments from your co-workers to be a positive.

Absolutely, I'd wear it. The color looks like the same one that's on the Olympia Stealth riding suit 'Im planning to buy this Winter. But I just bought a new Scorpion helmet in white, so that will have to be a future lid....

I have this Olympia jacket and I love it. I think you will like the riding suit, I find Olympia wear to be of great quality and comfort.

You think it would be overkill to wear both the helmet and the jacket?
