Joe King is a small family company that produces vintage style helmets.
Our products are HANDMADE one by one. I personally finish EVERY helmet. The supervision and guidance of our seamstress is made by my own family and myself. All helmets are painted by REAL painters. We want to them to be as hand crafted as possible rather than industrialized.

We are NOT a large factory that makes 2.000 helmets per day. We believe that making fewer helmets with a small staff that loves what they do will make the best and most exclusive helmets available.

This is what we do:

We don't buy plastic ABS shells from China like everyone else...we make our own Fiberglass shells the same way they were made back in the day.

Our straps are made from 100% real leather. Not even the vintage 60s helmet had real leather for straps.

The helmets are small, good looking and are NOT D.O.T. certified just like the early ones weren't.

If you are a lucky owner of a REAL small, low profile helmet produced until 1968 you know what I'm talking about and we have taken quality one step above.

1. Do you ship internationally?
We ship to worldwide. We offer tracking number and insurance.
EMS SHIPPING is STRONGLY recommended. We've been shipping helmets Worldwide for over 5 years now and EMS so far has been the safest and fastest method.

2. What are payment methods?
PAYPAL is our first choice, wire transfers can be arranged.

3. How long does it take to get a custom helmet made?
Solid helmets (1 color) take normally 10-15 days. We usually carry solid helmets painted in stock (black and white) so I that case it'll take about 5 days. Custom helmets may take from 20 and up to 50 days depending on the art, paintjob and other specs.

4. Are the helmets certified DOT?
No, they do not meet international safety standards but the look DAMN good!

5. I'm not sure how I want my helmet could you make me a sample so I can choose my design?
Definitely, we encourage you to send us your ideas and we'll gladly prepare samples so you can visualize your own custom helmet.

6. Can I find Joe King Helmets in stores outside Brazil?
Not at this moment. But we can make you any helmet you'd like and ship it to you.

7. Are the helmets ONE SIZE FITS ALL?
No, simply because this "one size fits all" idea just don't work. We will make a helmet to fit YOUR head not everyone's head.

8. Where is Joe King located?
It's located in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

If you still have any questions, please help us make a better F.A.Q. and send us your questions to


For a perfect fit: measure the circumference of your head right above eyebrows.
Helmet should fit snug! If you don't like snug fitting helmets let us know and we'll make it a little larger.

55cm (21.65 in) to 56cm (22.04 in) - SMALL
57cm (22.44 in) to 58cm (22.83 in) - MEDIUM
59cm (23.22 in) to 60cm (23.62 in) - LARGE
61cm (24.01 in) to 62cm (24.41 in) - X-LARGE

We can do smaller or bigger sizes.
Shells JK-400 and MINI are not recommended for XX-LARGE, they will fit a bit too tight.
MINI comes without snaps buttons in front and only accept traditional style strap.
