Simpson Ghost Bandit Helmet

Designed 100% with motorcycle riders in mind, the Simpson Ghost Bandit Helmet blends the classic tough-guy Bandit styling combined with features riders have come to expect from a proper lid. The Ghost Bandit is prepared to handle just about any type of riding while providing edgy styling and complete comfort.

What a good helmet
Damn cool and the lightest weight helmet I ever have.
It’s expensive but still worth to consider especially when you care more about having a stylish head gear on your bike

The shell size is a bit larger than I expect which is the only one people dislike

It is a perfect helmet for its price!
First time owner of an Simpson helmet. A perfect helmet! Very Impressed youtu.be/F8KtVWbiPxY Really like the styling, visibility. Has built in sun visor. It has plenty of ventilation for hot summer days. It is very comfortable, great airflow. And the design suits my bike perfectly. Excellent quality! Good price! I would definitely recommend this helmet for the everyday rider!

Drag Race This
Fan of the Simpson shape for years and finally in the market for a new touring lid as my Shark(also purchased from RZ) is getting worn out now. I did read the other reviews and my normal sportbike helmets are top AGV and Arai, so some of the quality issues concerned me. I purchased the tinted visor at the same time. No instructions on visor swap, but you can figure it out. Not as easy as the Arai method.

On the road I didn't notice much buffeting behind my Street Glide's bat wing fairing. Wind sound was loud, but I could hear my tunes just fine and I think the fairing helped. Air flow could be better and this is coming from a AZ rider. In traffic the visor had to be cracked open for air. I will ride with it on one of my sportbikes to compare.

Issues for me so far: Sizing seems correct on all spots but the cheeks. No hot spots noticed, but my cheeks are tight as a "duck face" selfie with the factory pads, I hope it's just a break-in issue that will eventually free up. I have not looked, but other helmet companies have different size padding. I did this on my Fox MX. Lastly my new tinted visor initially didn't close flush to the nose area, but looking left/right at freeway speeds it never moved.

Love it!
It’s a very good helmet! Fits great, comfy, good visibility, and looks great. Only down sides are not a whole lot of ventilation and I wish the inside visor would come down a little farther. The airflow is descent at speed but low speed it can get toasty, but for me it’s still pretty comfy even in the hot summer. You sacrifice some of the ventilation for the looks but I will definitely buy another when I have too.

Awesome Lid.
Thought I’d wait a while to write this review. My head measures 59cm & I normally wear Large Lids. I watched the video and considered ordering a Medium, but read the comments and decided to stick with the Large size. I had to get the sizing right as I was ordering internationally. This is my first full face helmet and liked the look of it. Price was a bit hard to swallow, but pulled the trigger anyway. Out the box, deep breath...oh yeah the fit is spot on. No movement even when doing head checks at high speed. I also ordered the mirrored pin lock ready face shied & Pinlock insert. Glad I did, cause there is no misting up. I read comments of the helmet whistling. Well I think the helmet is quite as! Then again I’m used to open face helmets...overall I am very happy with my purchase and if I had to spend the money again, I would.

Phenomenal
Was bouncing between this helmet and the biltwell and i have to say I’m very pleased with this helmet. Extremely comfortable, durable, and it looks amazing. I watched the detailed break down and did what it said as far as ordering one size smaller and I’m glad I did. I usally wear a large and I ordered the medium and it fits perfectly. Would recommend this product to all riders

Maybe not worth $450
This is my third "not cheap" helmet, both others being Shoei. This helmet is the most comfortable of the ones I own and has the least uplift and drag when riding at highway speeds. It feels the most, clean maybe. None of the materials feel as though they're cheap or hastily made. But I don't know that it delivers on its price.

Cons:
Slightly on the loud side. Not deafening though. I ride a loud Harley at highway speeds with no fairing and without earplugs, and it's tolerable. Though they say the effects of hearing loss is cumulative, so maybe I should stop that.

I am using the darkened outer visor. It is by far the foggiest visor I have ever used. This is perhaps the biggest drawback to this helmet. If you're in the city or doing less than highway speeds, it needs to be cracked open. At highway speeds, it'll fog if you are in less than 60 degree weather. If you need to cough or breathe heavy, you're gonna fog. Even on the highway.

The inner sun visor needs to perhaps drop down additional inch or so. It ends too high, and the bottom third of your field of vision is left exposed. Though perhaps this is by design, making it easier to read your gauges or see your GPS. So that might be a pro for some people.

Pros:
Great field of vision, looks cool, also the lightest helmet I own. The light weight and superior aerodynamics slows the onset of fatigue when riding long distances.

Brennen W on Mar 14, 2017
Is there room on the left side to put a sena unit? Looks like the switch for the internal visor would be in the way
A shopper on Feb 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is I put my Sena 20s on mine. I put it right behind the switch for the internal sun visor. The only problem I ran into is cause of the shape of the bottom of the helmet I had to use two of the spacers it comes with to push the bracket out far enough so I could get the Sean unit on and off. But yes you can do it.
If I'm on that 59-60 size Large on the chart, should i still go a size down?
Alonso h on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The "size down" suggestion in the video was based on a Pre-Production model. Simpson did make the fit more true to their size chart since then. Go off their size chart! - Rania - Gear Geek at RevZilla
This helmet is listed on your site and Simpson's site as being ECE certified, yet in the video an annotation pops up stating the helmet is only DOT. So which is it? DOT/ECE or just DOT?
Jim G on Feb 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There was an update made for the USA market. The helmet is only DOT. - Rania -Gear Geek at RevZilla
will they be offering a tinted shield and if so when?
NVHUNTER on Dec 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Multiple shields should be available at the end of February with helmet release.
What head shape does this helmet fit most comfortably?
Robert W on Dec 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The helmet will be an oval shaped.
Will it be room to put a Sena 10r unit on the left side of the helmet ? It looks like the switch for the internal sun visor is right where the Sena unit should go.
Ryan M on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I put my Sena 20 right before the sun visor switch
what is the weight of the non carbon fiber helmet?
A shopper on Jan 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 2lbs 13oz for non carbon fiber. Carbon Fiber is 2lbs 4oz
What is the noise level of the Simpson ghost bandit?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Its pretty loud, that being said the airflow is great so hard to have one without the other.
Are measurements accurate?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Very. Measure 3 times and take the average.
