While Speed and Strength is often known for their awesome graphics and eye catching colors, the Speed and Strength SS200 Sold Speed Helmet is all black, with blacked out logos and a black matte finish to keep it clean looking. Plus the shell was specifically designed with an advanced thermo-poly shell to keep it DOT certified but still allow the helmet to be closer to the head, reducing weight and space. In other words, it really cuts down on the mushroom head effect that many half helmets give.
