    Default AYR8 Charles Owen Helmet...What Color?

    I have decide to order a CO AYR8 helmet & there are a lot of color choices. I ride Hunters. What color should I get or what do most people order?

    Black/Black, I ride hunters too. And even that comes across as gray stripe up center due to the mesh part for venting.

    Definitely black/black.

    Although I just got a navy/silver one and it is beautiful. I plan on using it at our LOCAL shows with my navy jacket. Wouldn't dream of wearing it at a rated show, however, especially not an A show.

    Black/black is really the only appropriate color.

    I wouldn't say that... A brown on brown AYR8 would look great with brown boots!

    Yes, but that would require getting brown boots, brown gloves, and being a good enough rider that you're not going to stick out too sorely. Only certain people can really pull off the brown look.

    I have a black/silver. I wear it at A shows. Hell, I'm going to wear it at an AA show in a few weeks. I also have a brown (GASP!) velvet helmet I have worn at A shows.

    I really don't think the judge gives a rat's ass what color helmet I'm wearing. Wear what you like.

    I grew up wearing custom brown field boots - eventually had them dyed black, then one day they finally disintegrated : (
