Rob on... Helmets

Author: Rob Furminger Posted: 09/03/2016

A helmet is probably the single most important item of protection you will wear so it's essential you get it right.

With helmets it's certainly not a case of one size fits all as many brands fit slightly differently and everyones head is unique, some more than others! It's essential that you try the helmet and ideally be fitted by one of our trained staff to make sure it's right for you. Not only does it need to be fitted for size and comfort but it's important to get the right type of helmet for what you require, this can be a quiet helmet for day to day riding, a well vented one for racing or one that has a flip front, ideal for touring.

Helmets are usually made up of three layers, this includes the outer shell, inner lining for absorbing impacts and padding for the comfort of the rider. The outer shell is very abrasive resistant and rigid to keep the inner linings safe and protected. The absorbent layer is designed so that when under pressure it compacts, taking the force rather that that being transmitted through to the head of the wear. The inner padding is designed to provide a secure fit and comfort to the user. These can often be removed and washed or swapped for pads in a different size to give a perfect fit.

If you are a tourer, racer, commuter or an off road rider we have a helmet perfect for you.

We stock helmets from many high quality brands such as Shoei, AraiHJC, Shark, AGV, Schuberth and X-Lite. These are all premium brands with their development riders in many championships such as MotoGP, British Superbike and World Superbike.
