Hmm, I guess that depends on whether that's real carbon or a decal...

If its real carbon you have severely altered the way your helmet is going to react on impact. The fibers are not postioned with any structural thought and they stiffen the whole shell. Too stiff and it won't flex properly or break on hard impact absorbing shock so your skull doesn't have too.

Its 3M Scotchal Vinyl Wrap. Im not daft enough to wrap it with 'actual' Carbon fibre

Glad you think it looks that real though

It looks real. How did you do it? It looks perfect.
