Crazy Al's Helmets Reviewed
Let us talk about this Crazy Al’s motorcycle half helmets based on our riding and research.
Before we get to their different types of helmet let us first talk about WHY?
Why would you choose a motorcycle half helmet? Here are some reasons for it.
First, some riders chose a half helmet because they want the sights, the smells, and the sound of the motorcycle riding without having a full face helmet getting in the way. Other riders live in the state where they need to wear a helmet based on the laws or they would rather not wear a helmet and this is really going to be their best line for that and ultimately when we think about these helmets they are not encumbering. Some riders really have an aversion to having that full chin bar go across the face and they get a little claustrophobic. This is a great way to protect your noggin. They all are going to be d-o-t rated while allowing your face to breathe again, getting some of that wind really feeling the open road.
Half helmet bikes do not contain the rider’s head completely. This is what makes them less constraining. Several riders find this additional comfortable. A full helmet can be hot or sweaty on the face; depending on the conditions.
Using superior materials and advanced manufacturing procedures, WSB Inc. (also known as Crazy Al’s Helmets) has developed the world’s absolute lightest, smallest and lowest profile motorcycle beanie helmet. So now you can avoid the “mushroom” head look of other helmets that use excessive padding and thick shells to meet DOT standards.
ALL their beanie helmets now come with:
- Quick release strap
- Smallest DOT shell size ever made
- UltraLow Profile
- Meets or exceeds D.O.T. FMVSS No.218 standards
- Sits low on your head Never have mushroom head again
- Made of Fiberglass
- Made in China
- Only use water to clean our helmets
Now we all go on to different types of their motorcycle half helmets.
This line of Crazy Al’s Beanie Helmets was inspired by the hit show, Sons of Anarchy. DOT certified and available in a variety of designs (even genuine carbon fiber).
The small size of this helmet is great and fits your head perfectly, that mushroom head that Harley sells is in the wind. Some riders owned lighter beanie helmets, but they’ve always thought they were fake DOT knockoffs that do absolutely nothing. You can feel the quality in the manufacture of this helmet; it has a solid feeling to it, but a lot lighter and smaller than the Harley 1/2 shell. This isn’t a toy for appearance sake; it is a well-made quality helmet that keeps you looking great and as safe as you can be with this style of helmet.
You must follow direction on measurements and to have a perfect fit. The helmet is very comfortable and it has a great look compared to other half shell helmets.
Their low profile motorcycle helmets have little to no padding and therefore avoid mushroom heads (another reason they are hugely popular in cafe racers and outlaw biker circles).
This helmet is exactly what they describe. It is lightweight; it is quite thin, no harsh air impact on your head to hurt your neck and no more mushroom head!
Lighter helmet can actually be a real benefit. If you’re in a state that needs D-O-T certified it has got a ratchet set system and the quick-release strap feature and it is amazing. The coating on it has a little bit of issue when putting this on the concrete, it scratches the coat and fingerprint smudges on this version of their helmet. But in the long run it is a great helmet. There is still a “mushroom head” look but it is less than other DOT helmets.
When you take it out of the box the first thing you notice is the quality. You will love the slim look and the lightweight feel of this helmet. Every one of the previous helmets has been uncomfortable in some way – one pinches your head in a certain area, another is way too heavy and feels like a sail on your head, another is way too hot, etc. but this helmet has beaten them out in comfort, design and style. The buckle strap alone is worth it! The strap can also be adjusted to provide the user with a comfortable fit. It also meets the minimum standards required for motorcycle helmets intended for road use. It was comfortable even on the hottest days of summer because its visor is protecting you.
The Crazy Al’s Half Helmet is a classy but cool half helmet that riders can use if they don’t want to feel a burden on their heads. The lightweight design offers the perfect fit to any rider’s head.
This helmet sits low on your head, has a quick-release strap, it is also a DOT approved. The helmet is available in glossy black color that will suit different outfits and motorbikes. The rider can exude confidence when they go out with this helmet.
To measure your head for the correct size take a tape measure just above your brow around your head just at the top of your ears. If your head measures in between sizes order the size smaller. Our helmets should fit snug when they stretch and mold to the shape of your head. When you like your equipment more, you will ride more.

Set an example other motorcyclists can follow by obeying laws, including wearing a helmet every time you ride. Even the most skilled riders wear helmets and other protective gear, because collisions can happen when you least expect it. Modern helmets are manufactured to be comfortable and lightweight to avoid neck strain and help you stay focused on the road.
