Helmet review: Arai RX7 GP

Richard Newland, 19 October 2012 14:40

Arai RX7 GP helmet, £699.99Miles covered/time: 40,000/three years What's good? Helmets are a very personal choice, but I’ve been wearing Arai for 19 years – not for any irrational brand-loyalty reason, but simply because they fit my head like a, er, glove. The GP is the range-topping Arai – carbon aside – and with the exception of the minor demerits ...

Umbro Sports Sock

Alison Silcox, 29 August 2012 11:24

Umbro Sports Sock, £4.99 for 10 pairsMiles covered/time: 3000/five months (plus about three years of normal wear)What’s good: Yes, it’s a grubby old white sports sock, not the most fashionable item on the planet and not one you’d naturally associate with biking but I’ve found it’s ideal for stowing my spare visor. With the weather being so changeable this year ...

Helmet review: Schuberth S2

Andy Downes, 30 July 2012 12:37

Schuberth S2, £499.99Miles covered/time: 2500/two months What’s good: I have ridden with Arai helmets for many years but this new Schuberth S2 is the best road lid I have ever used thanks to a brilliant combination of comfort, quality, quiet and ventilation. Through the wettest summer in history this lid has done some big road miles, been to the Isle ...

Helmet review: Scorpion VX15 Air

Liam Marsden, 06 July 2012 15:49

Scorpion VX15 Air, £119.99Miles covered/time: 400/five months What's good? This is the first off-road helmet I’ve owned and so far it’s proven to be excellent. The lining wicks moisture away easily – essential for off-road riding – and the large vents keep you cool. I’ve started wearing it on the road on hot days as it does an excellent job ...

Helmet review: Shoei Neotec

Mykel Nicolaou, 16 May 2012 11:16

Shoei Neotec helmet, £469.99Time used: Two months What I like: The new Neotec had a huge reputation to live up to, as the replacement for Shoei’s hugely popular Multitec II. With an integrated sun visor and easy to use flip up mechanism coupled with an enlarged visor and multiple venting points, the Neotec is a definite step up from what ...

Helmet review: Arai RX-7 GP

Michael Neeves, 30 April 2012 11:44

Arai RX-7 GP. £649.99Time used: Three years What’s good: This is my everyday lid – the classic white with a black visor combo. I save my Rich Art painted Arai for road testing duties, but this is what I use the rest of the time for commuting, long bike trips and so far, three 3000-mile European holidays. The quality of ...

Helmet review: Shoei XR1000

Alison Silcox, 24 April 2012 12:23

Shoei XR1000 (superseded by the XR1100, from £329.99)Miles covered/time: 4500/4 years (didn’t ride for 2 of these years) What’s good: This is the second Shoei that I’ve owned and, as with the first, it suits my head shape and fits well. While the padding was initially a bit snug and when removing the lid I felt like my temples where ...

Helmet review: Davida Jet

Marc Abbott, 15 February 2012 11:59

Davida Jet helmet, £235Miles covered/time: 9100/one year, nine months What’s good: So often in the course of writing these reviews our opinions and findings are tempered by a caveat along the lines of: “thankfully, I’ve not crashed in this so can’t vouch for how it would perform, but…” I’m glad (in a way) on this occasion to say that there’s ...

Helmet review: Arai Tour-X3

Steve Farrell, 02 February 2012 15:02

Arai Tour-X3, £354.99 (£299 on MCN Shop; superseded by Arai Tour-X4) Miles covered/time: 3500/one year What’s good: It’s an off- and on-road lid in one.  Detach the peak and you have a normal helmet for the road. Put it back on and it’s an off-road/adventure lid with a visor. The Arai name gives you a certain confidence in the level ...

Shark Vision-R helmet

Tom Cambio, 19 December 2011 11:19

Shark Vision-R helmet, £239.99Miles covered/time: Two months/2000 miles What’s good: Shark’s Vision-R is very hard to fault. It’s well built and exudes a premium feel, with a solid visor mechanism that effectively seals, keeping out the rain and blocking any drafts, plus a plush, removable lining. The stand-out feature is the enlarged visor aperture (hence the ‘Vision-R’ name), which provides ...
