No matter what type of bike you ride, safety and comfort is what you want from a motorcycle helmet, isn't it? It’s a balance between the best level of safety you can afford combined with the style you want, but always the optimum fit possible. Don't 'go cheap' and try and save money here as it’s the most important piece of your kit and of course mandatory by law.
Be prepared to part with a chunk of your hard-earned cash to get the right helmet. So many motorcyclists make the mistake of shelling out a fortune on a cool bike with all the bells and whistles, only to buy a cheap helmet, that might match the bike but compromises on safety standards!
One way to find the right helmet – one that will keep you safe and fit– is to purchase from a long established Dealer with a fully trained team who has selected a range over many years of experience. Bike Stop can offer you exactly that: a diverse selection of motorcycle helmets sourced from the most reputable helmet manufacturers. Get the finest helmets that money can buy made by industry giants, such as Shark, Shoei, AGV (why not splash out on a Valentino Rossi replica!?), Arai, Bell and Davida.
Helmets for every type of biker
What kind of bike do you ride? Or maybe you're thinking of getting a bike for the first time soon, and will need a helmet to go with your other essential gear, such as a good motorcycle jacket, boots and gloves? Online or in store, Bike Stop can offer you:
Full face helmets – The most protective type for safety (and weather protection) with a fixed chin-bar. These normally come with a flip-up visor, but you can also select one with an integral drop-down sun visor if you're looking for enhanced convenience.
Open face helmets – You're after a helmet with a more traditional look? OK. Opt for an open face helmet without a chin-bar. A peak or visor attached is an option with this type of helmet or even an integrated drop down sun visor, if that's what you'd prefer.
Flip front helmets – For the best of both worlds in a helmet, opting for a flip up design is the answer. Enjoy excellent flexibility and highly protective helmet that combines a full-face but where the chin-bar unlocks and rotates up – ideal for whenever you need to converse with another and for putting on your helmet more comfortably (like an open-face helmet). Where you want to ride with it “open” we suggest the version where the chin bar rotates all the way to the back of the helmet.
