Notice the front brass shield holder on the phenix is a carved phenix. On cairns I use an eagle. Also can use a dragon, a bulldog, a beaver for our brothers up north eh, and retro brass.

N6a is the safest. It has the best impact cap. It’s huge. The cons: it’s a HUGE lid. Like tbis is ridiculous 1F747E0B-AC11-4E35-A925-C17F063EF721.jpeg

Boston bend. Flat all the way around. Such an iconic look. 0FC15ACB-3186-41C8-895A-A7BBA38480CD.jpeg

Squad bend. Aka “Harrisburg“ primally used for drivers. Some places require drivers to wear a helmet while driving. (Stupid) so they put this bend in the back so the helmet doesn’t hit the seat. Just a gentle flip on this one. It can get quite extreme. D0D2BC1D-B5C6-4865-985E-E1601D3D1033.jpeg

Bronx bend. Notice the back goes straight down. Offers max neck protection, and makes me have a compact lid and can get in confined spaces moe betta. My favorite bend personally. Most people hate it. And to those people, you’re wrong. image.jpg image.jpg

The cowboy bend allows water to be redirected off the back of the lid. Not a fan of the look but people love It. FE3FC1D1-0F9E-4CFB-AC7B-684897A381CA.jpeg 3B9F0E54-6912-4FCD-A9CC-77D344132B32.jpeg

This New Yorker bend is another classic. Good for water redirection. If you look at the nice natural helmet on page 1, this is it now after a few fires. Salty. I love it. My fav helmet 053A534B-3939-4ECF-8F1F-F5824F421DE7.jpeg

Phenix bend. Not quite as extreme as Bronx. Like st all. But it still has a slight bend down. C94C5427-58F0-43F8-B41A-4ABF31CDFD40.jpeg

I’m getting the idea that some bends are for aesthetics, and others serve a purpose. Learn me some more.
That is all the bends off the top of my head. As stated, I am currently working on a new bend. “Brunswick bend” but I now must obtain another leather helmet to practice on. It will be functional
