Akuma Helmets Closeout Sale, only $29!

Hey guys, I have about 20 to 30 brand new Akuma Helmets left that I am selling for only $350 + $12 shipping! These Akuma helmets sell new online for $250! The only catch is that each helmet has a minor problem with the led lights. I am not including the charger for the helmet but I will include the connection with wires so you can make your own charger if you want.

If you have ever wanted a backup helmet for friends then this is the time to buy. The helmets come in sizes M, L, XL, 2XL, and 3XL. I have limited availability in the sizes so I recommend sending me requests for your top 3 styles and I will see if I have them. The helmets fit between 1-2 sizes too small so please take this into consideration when ordering. No refunds.

They are an American owned company that was started by a former marine and navy man. They make a variety of stylish full faced helmets. Many of their models use a patented built in charging system that powers an LED map light in the front and 2 built in rear visibility lights in the back. The lights can be used for about 2 weeks before the helmet needs to be recharged with the provided charger for 3 hours.




Uploaded with ImageShack.us

The helmets are DOT & ECE 22-05 Certified. The open faced helmets are very popular right now, but please keep this photo in mind before you decide to buy one:


Unfortunately the chin locking devices on open faced helmets are a weak point that often breaks in forward impact crashes. Breaking your jaw is incredibly painful and once you have done it once it is something that you are careful not to do again.

If you check: http://www.akumahelmets.com/home.php the price for a new helmet is with charger and protective bag is $249 + shipping. I am selling mine for a fraction of that, so here is your one time chance to get a great deal on a new (or nearly new) helmet. I am also including (while supplies last) 1 extra free visor (a $35 value).


Sizing Chart
Note: The helmets tend to fit one size too small, so please be careful when ordering and measure the circumference of your head for the best fit. (((No returns.)))
As of now (April 11th) I have availability in all of the sizes listed below for the majority of the different models. In June and July I will probably run out of the most common sizes so order now!

The AH-64 Apache was built to endure front-line environments and to operate during the day or night using state of the art electronics. It only made sense to design and engineer a motorcycle helmet the same way.

Hi, are there any in your stock still available, if yes, can you tell me which ones?
I was mainly interested (but it is not listed above) in the R2 Frost model, the plain white one. Thanks.

Pissed

I contacted you to buy one of these a few months ago the first time you posted this ad. You answered me back once and then I never heard from you again. Are you going to be more available this time?

The title might say "...Closeout Sale, only $29!" but from what I see in the description above, everything is priced from $69 and above... which one is the one that costs only $29?

These are top line helmets with good reviews. This is a killer price. The seller is just hard to maintain contact with. The prices are what they were the first time he posted this ad a few months ago. They must all be $29 now. Here's some Webbikeworld reviews of Akuma products.

So, if someone was clearancing Shoei X-11 helmets for $79, you would not consider one based on the price?

If it was a genuine x-11, perhaps I would. But $79 helmets aren't $29 helmets.

Hey guys, sorry about being unavailable before.

Yes, the price on these helmets is only $29 and they sell for $250 new.
(The only catch to these $29 helmets is that one or more of the led lights in them do not work.)

If you want one with working LED lights then I can sell you one for $89.


Thank You,
Geoff

Now that you are available, here is my question again:

"Hi, are there any in your stock still available, if yes, can you tell me which ones?
I was mainly interested (but it is not listed above) in the R2 Frost model, the plain white one."

All the excessive whining has been punted.. To be clear, read the posted rules.. You don't come into a vendor's thread and crap on his products.. You don't like this product, move on.. Got nothing nice to say,
