    A A A

    The lightweight Hightail B09 5/8 Helmet is engineered to be the smallest profile 5/8 helmet out there and an H-D® exclusive helmet until 2018. Unique to this 5/8 motorcycle helmet is the interchangeable visor. It includes the shorter visor, but it can be swapped out for the longer visor (sold separately as a replacement part). The snap-in design allows easy installation – no small pieces to lose or misplace. A combination face shield & visor is also available for this helmet (sold separately).

      Average Weight: 1 lb. 12 oz. or 794 grams.

    Hightail B09 5/8 Helmet is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight & Comfortable This is my third open-face helmet and it is by far the best. It is very light and fits snugly without creating the uncomfortable pressure points that my previous helmets did. Because it has a smaller exterior profile than most other 5/8 or 3/4 helmets, it looks good too.
