Why choose the Simpson Darksome Solid Matt Black Modular Helmet?

The Simpson Darksome is a great modular helmet by Simpson for Adventure/Touring, Urban/Street riders. A modular helmet is ideal for those who spend many hours in the saddle. This, because they cover your entire head like a full face helmet does and offer the convenience of a jet helmet thanks to the flip-up chin piece. If you are on the market for a helmet built for comfort, modular helmets are the way to go. If this Darksome is not the helmet you are looking for, don't worry we have a lot of other Simpson modular helmets in our collection.

Safety features of the Darksome

A helmet's job first and foremost is to provide protection. Constructed from Fiberglass / fiber mix, this Black Darksome is generally stronger than a polycarbonate shell. These helmets are lightweight, durable and slightly flexible, allowing for excellent impact absorption. The chinstrap is an important part of the helmet’s effectiveness in a crash and It is also the part that you interact with the most when putting on and taking off the helmet. The Darksome features a Double-D buckle. This is probably the oldest style buckle and has the simplest design. Yet it is considered to be the safest to date and Double-D chin straps are the only ones allowed on the racetrack. Of course all of our helmets are certified and road legal for European roads as this helmet is ECE 22.05 approved. This safety rating is also road legal in many other countries like Australia and Canada.

The Darksome Comfort

Besides safety, comfort is key to any good helmet, this Darksome features a ventilation system with 4 Exhaust ports, 4 Intake ports which keeps you fresh and cool. In addition the helmet is fitted with a Removable, Washable interior. The Fiberglass / fiber mix shell makes the helmet weigh 1510g and our customers rate this helmet to have an Intermediate fit.

faq

How do I measure my helmet size?

The circumference of your head provides a good guideline for the size you need for a helmet. Use a tape measure to measure the widest circumference of your head. For most people, this point is about an inch above your eyebrows, along the junction of your ear and over the lump on the back of your head. In the size chart you will find which size fits the circumference of your head in cm.

What are the different helmet fit

All heads are different and that is why manufacturers make different helmet shapes, this can be roughly categorized into three shapes: round, oval and round-oval.

  • Round: length and width of the head are almost the same;
  • Round-oval: the length of the head is slightly greater than the width;
  • Oval: the length of the head is significantly greater than the width.

Most motorcycle helmet manufacturers provide a predominantly round-oval fit so that they can appeal to the widest possible audience. Keep in mind that the fit of a helmet is very complex and difficult to describe exactly. Small differences may therefore also be possible within these three categories!

Are sizes the same for all brands?

In general, the helmet sizes and the corresponding number of cm do overlap. If your previous old AGV was size L, chances are you also need an L for your new Nolan. But as mentioned before, there can be small differences in fit per brand and even series. That is why it can happen that the cool new helmet you've been eyeing, even when you have measured yourself well, simply wont fit well.

How do I make sure the helmet I received actually is the right fit for me.

You can check the size and fit in the following ways:

  • Keep the helmet still and then try to tilt your head back into the helmet. If the helmet is too large (in the longitudinal direction), you will hit the inner shell with your nose without too much effort. Sliding a little bit is allowed, but this should only happen with the necessary resistance.
  • Keep the helmet still and turn your head from left to right. Again, a little sliding is allowed, but with resistance. If the helmet comes off the face completely at the temples, the helmet is too big.

A good "tight" fit is what you are looking for, after all, you don't want your helmet to suddenly start shifting while riding. If you think the helmet is too small, keep in mind that the inner lining hase to be worn in a bit, and the helmet will become a bit wider when used. The cheek pads in particular usually feel quite tight in the beginning but quickly become more comfortable. The best way to determine whether a helmet has a good tight fit or simply is to small, is to keep the helmet on at home for half an hour to an hour. If you don't start to suffer from a headache or get red pressure spots, Then it's all good!
