I think it's Craig900 who has one (picked up from US?) - I've seen the lid and it looked pretty awesome...!

I do have this helmet comfy, wind noise ok looks the dogs with the dark visor on which comes with the new helmet . After a bit of research and the help of friends on wrist twisters the american hornet site, they did suggest getting a size larger than you would normally wear .I usually wear a small and i got a medium and its a good fit cant just off hand remember where i got it think it was from[ milwaukee usa ]

Hi, I too have a yellow hornet and am so disappointed that I can't find this helmet anywhere in the UK asimwould love one!

If you got one, was it from eBay or amazon? And did you go for your size here or one up as Craig recommended? I'm just worried my big XL head won't fit in the American XL or even that if I go one up to the XXL it might be too big? Oh the dilemma!

Any advice?

Thanks!

Just use google to search mrsbee, I think sparx hornet 1 is quite hard to find now a days, coz they now have sparx hornet 2

My suggestion stick with just the XL size coz as time goes by the foam inside the helmet will greatly diminish because of normal wear and tear

I will post a link next time, let me search for hornet sparx 1 online, most likely it is availabla but in usa only

Found one mrsbee, but this one is the latest sparx hornet 2

http://www.amazon.com/SPARX-HORNET-YELL ... B004PBY5AG

Hope this helps... Pls update this thread once you purchased one

A tight helmet is much better than a loose one

As time goes by the foam will diminish

The only thing i hate bout this lid is the strap, i will replace it with an LS2 strap quick release
