Arai Quantum

Andy Downes, 22 July 2011 14:56

Arai Quantum, £399 at www.mcnshop.comMiles covered/time: 15,000/one year What’s good: This Quantum lid replaced an older Arai Viper GT for one reason only; the Viper had basically worn out after years of riding and tens of thousands of miles. The comfort is top notch, the security of the shell is the same as the range-topping RX-7GP but does without the noise-generating ...

Shoei X-Spirit I Lawson replica

John Westlake, 22 July 2011 12:05

Shoei X-Spirit I Lawson replica, £389 (other design from £299.99 at Miles covered: 50,000/five years What’s good: Comfort, fit and finish are all as you’d expect of a top-end Shoei – ie excellent – but you can say the same of equivalent Arais. What differentiates the two for me is the Shoei’s slightly more spectacle-friendly shell shape (wider at ...

Suomy Vandal helmet

Liam Marsden, 13 July 2011 17:16

Suomy Vandal, £349.99Time owned/miles covered: Two months/2500 miles What's good? Suomys are generally tighter fitting than other brand helmets of the same size, but it means they don’t get too loose the more you wear them. Personally I prefer my helmet to be tight fitting. This is my second Suomy helmet and just like the first it fits my head like ...

Nexx XR1R Carbon helmet

Dan Aspel, 13 July 2011 15:09

Nexx XR1R Carbon helmet, £299.99Miles covered/time: 1000/two months What’s good: This is the best road helmet I’ve worn. The visor is very tall and broad, giving you a fantastic view of the road, sky, clocks and neighbouring lanes. It makes the slit-like view from my AGV Stealth SV feel like wearing Ned Kelly’s steel helmet in comparison. Unlike any other ...

Shoei XR1000

Ian Jubb, 04 July 2011 14:16

Shoei XR1000, £300Miles covered/time: 6500/three years What’s good: Comfy, quiet and looks cool in black. This Shoei XR1000 has been my everyday lid for a few years now, it’s super easy to keep clean as it has few vents or details to trap dirt and flies. An add-on whisper strip kit for £20 keeps the noise levels even lower which ...

Dan Aspel, 22 June 2011 12:12

HelmetLok, £12.45 Time used: Six months What’s good: HelmetLok is a carabiner designed to attach your helmet to your handlebars. Open it up, slip it through your D-ring, click it shut and twizzle the combination lock away from your pre-set code. Leave helmet secure in the knowledge that opportunistic thieves can’t grab your lid and run. It’s off-putting enough to ...

Nuvo FX-1 Carbon

Dan Aspel, 01 June 2011 14:11

Nuvo FX-1 Carbon helmet, £209.99Miles covered/time: 600/three weeks What’s good: It’s an affordable, uni-composite carbon lid. That means it’s very light – 1300g – and its sleek, flickering reflections will send a frisson of excitement through your gut early on a Sunday morn. The vents are unobtrusive and – despite four unmissable NUVO logos – it’s quite the looker. What’s ...

Marc Abbott, 27 May 2011 15:15

HJC RPHA-10 helmet

Steve Farrell, 17 May 2011 09:40

HJC RPHA-10 helmet, £249.99 (£229.99 on MCN shop) Steve Farrell Miles covered/time: 3000/three months What's good: For me, the best thing is the fit. I’m sure I’m not alone in having an oval-shaped head. Many helmets which initially seem to fit cause an agonising pressure point on my forehead after an hour of wearing. The HJC RPHA-10, though, fits perfectly. ...

Arai SZ Ram Air III

Simon Relph, 09 May 2011 15:38

Arai SZ Ram Air lll, £324.99 (£299 on MCN shop) Miles covered/time: 3400/one year What's good: This type of motorcycle helmet is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I grew up with open face helmets and I have always enjoyed the freedom they give you. Being able to open the visor completely allowing you to enjoy the breeze, or pull ...
