Byron's sure to be hunched over a laptop after the checkers are flown, caught in his own little version of heaven. Whether on dirt, street or a combination of both, MotoUSA's newest addition knows the only thing better than actually riding is telling the story of how things went down.

FLY Racing has added two new lids to its street line-up. The Tourist Helmet and .357 Half Helmet are built of durable, high-quality materials to ensure maximum protection and comfort. Whatever your riding preference, FLY has you covered.

FLY Tourist Helmet

The new FLY Tourist open face helmet comes with a bevy of options to suit the needs of riders all year long. Out of the box, the Tourist comes with a clear shield and removable clip-in jaw piece, giving you the option of riding full or open faced. There’s also a dark tint shield included, as well as a peak, intended for riding without the shield or jaw piece. Both the shield and peak can be removed and re-attached without the aid of tools while the removable jaw has a one-piece breath-box/chin curtain for rides in cold or rainy conditions.

Constructed of D.O.T. approved thermo-plastic alloy, the shell is lightweight and durable. The large eye port allows for improved range of vision, and the Cooolmax comfort liner and cheek pads are removable and washable. The Tourist also has enlarged ear pockets, allowing for maximum comfort while also providing space for speakers and communications systems. There are a number of optional features available for purchase as well, including anti-fog clear and dark tint shields and also a clear double lens for use in extremely low temperatures. Ranging in size from XS to 2XL and coming in a wide variety of color options, the FLY Tourist open face helmet is geared to appeal to riders of all stripes. MSRP ranges from $109.95 to $119.95, making the Tourist an extremely affordable lid.

FLY .357 Half Helmet

The FLY .357 Half Helmet seamlessly blends style, function and affordability, providing a tight package for under $100 dollars that also seeks to provide as much protection as possible for a half shell. Built of D.O.T. approved thermo-plastic alloy, the aerodynamic design of the shell is available in matte or gloss black, as well as in a number of stylish flame-graphic options. It comes with a retractable hard coated sun tint shield and has a removable liner for cleaning. The .357 is sized from XS to 2XL and is offered with plenty of optional and replacement shields for purchase as well. With flame graphics, the FLY .357 Half Helmet rings in at $79.95 while the matte and glossy black versions list at $74.95.
