Les Ateliers RUBY helmets

Hi.

I have been looking at adding a FULL FACE vintage style helmet to my collection and came across this brand:
https://www.ateliers-ruby.com/collec...s/conrad-leach

It seems that these helmets are quite exclusive & counterfeit reproductions are rife. I was wondering if anyone on the forum owns or has owned a real one?
Reviews (i.e non biased) are extremely scarce and i would really like to gather some more info on fit, finish, user experience, etc.
On their website - every single model is sold out (except a few limited edition versions)!
I have emailed the manufacturer, but being Christmas i don´t expect an answer until next week at the earliest.

My other choice would be a Bell Bullitt:

Thanks and Happy Holidays

I have no experience with this helmet but if you like the "look" then check out Revzilla for the Gringo helmet much lower price point.

the third picture, on the link site, shows a color quite similar to the one you like at Ruby's.

I wear a Bell Bullit and I am very happy with it. I purchased a variety of face shields to change the look up once in awhile. To me it compliments th3 retro look of the Bobber.

@Rocky
How is the fit?
I have an intermediate oval shape (think Schuberth/Arai type fit) and i have read that the Bullitt is more ¨round¨ and for larger shaped heads. There are Bell stockists here in Mallorca, but they have no stock in my size - so can´t get hold of one to try

here's a good thread on members helmets:
https://www.triumphbobberforum.com/fo...ew-helmet.html

i love my gringo's (have three of them).
super light-weight and comfy, and good price. windshield could be better as you get a lot of noise and some air flow (also i'm sure it would not do well in the rain) but that's a trade off for the retro look/feel.
