Thread: Helmet Liners?

  1. #16
    I bought several brands trying to resolve this and settled on the Gibson-Barnes that Zoomo recommends above. They're light, easy to get my sunglasses under, and slippery enough that my snug helmet slides on and off easier than without the liner. I bought red! The coolest color.

    Thumbs up Sweat-Vac for me!

    I have the LD "short" liner...a little snug.....my Sweat-Vacs are really the best (for me) all around.

    Is the "mesh" cap adequate or better when it comes to allowing air to flow through it via the air intake at the top of my helmet? Who sells it, please?

    Let me rephrase that last posting - is there a mesh type of liner that allows airflow through the intake on top of the helmet and through the mesh to your head?

    Another vote for the LD Comfort liner. Not the thinnest, but the back of my neck sure appreciated the length of the tail when riding across the country a few years ago. Other riders had lobster necks.

    Helmet Liner

    Cycle Gear stores sell a mesh liner, their Heat Out unit that is thin and allows cool air from the scoop on my Nolan N104 to be felt.

    Jim, These liners look like they would definitely fit the bill for me. Can I make an assumption that a good approximation of sizing is helmet size = liner size before ordering any volume? Else I might just order a one each for a few sizes. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    I have them from Flight Suits Ltd and Gibson and Barnes both. I use size large. My helmet size usually is between Large and Extra large depending on Mfg. My golf cap size is 7 1/2. Hope that helps.
