It’s spring! Time to set aside your games of Halo and enjoy the outdoors by taking a ride on your motorcycle. But you don’t have to leave Halo behind completely – now you can be Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 while you ride around town with this Spartan motorcycle helmet from NECAonline.com. There have been other Halo inspired helmets out there that are collectibles or function as Halloween costumes, but this is a DOT approved (FMVSS 49 CFR 571.218) modular motorcycle helmet. It has a glove friendly opening mechanism, ABS shell with matte UV protective coating, front air intakes to reduce shield fogging, rear exhaust vents to help you keep a cool head (when battling the Covenant of course), and a reflective shield with UV coating to protect your eyes. It is also eyeglasses friendly, has a double D nylon chin strap with snap secure, center pad to allow for heat dissipation, and dual layer EPS cheek pads for a secure fit (center pad and cheek pads are removable for washing). It comes in four sizes: Small (55-56cm), Medium (57-58 cm), Large (59-60 cm), and Extra Large (61-62 cm). It is available for pre-order from GameStop for $524.99 and will ship in August 2015. Unfortunately, it does not have a head-up display (HUD) or Cortana AI, but maybe these features will be available in the future 😉 .
