Motorcycling can be a very expensive hobby, especially if you want to invest in durable and qualitative pieces. And although you will mostly have to pay for your motorcycle and keeping it updated through time, special protection equipment is required no matter how passionate or not you are about this. And apart from the hot leather boots and mandatory leather jacket to keep your mojo high, what would a cool biker do without a cool biker helmet? Obviously, nobody stops you from paying for high-end qualitative pieces that might cost a fortune, but if you want to look cool while also staying on the budget, there are plenty of products on the market as well.
You may not require extremely expensive helmets, especially if your ride isn’t powerful enough or you are not planning on racing with it or wear it in a bar fight. Vega is one of the brands that will help you stay protected without having to crash your piggy bank or apply for a second line credit.
Vega X888 Review – Product Description
The X888 comes in plenty of sizes to choose from to ensure a perfect and close fit, no matter your dimensions. It also meets or even exceeds the DOT standards, thus it is safe to use anywhere inside the US.
Another important feature is that you can choose from nine different shield options, to match each and every riding style and weather conditions. This Vega helmet comes with a transparent shield, but you can easily upgrade it with a tint, mirror or anti-fog shields, depending on your requirements.
Moreover, the X888 inside lining is made from anti-microbial and high humidity resistance fabric for a perfectly comfortable fit even when wearing all day. This way, no matter how long your ride is you will always stay comfortable and dry.
The Vega X888 helmet provides four different vents positioned on the chin, the forehead, the mouth and on rears to ensure perfect ventilation and maximized oxygen levels.

Although traditionally marketed as a motorcycling helmet, the Vega X888 is more suitable for beginners and passengers, due to its hard plastic shell fabric. However, it can be safely used for ATVs and snowboarders and can be successfully upgraded to fit foggy, night or extreme lighting riding.
