Helmet Review: HJC IS-17 helmet

Simon Patterson, 23 September 2013 14:30

HJC IS-17 helmet, £139.99 Time tested: Five months/1400 miles What’s good? For a relatively budget-priced helmet, I’ve been really impressed with this HJC. It has an integral sun visor, comes with a free Pinlock anti-fog insert, and it looks lovely, with a metallic-effect white gloss paintjob. I’ve mainly used it for commuting and riding around town and it offers good ...

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 ...

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: 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: Arai Chaser

Guy Procter, 30 November 2011 15:00

Arai Chaser, £199Miles covered/time: 7000/15 months What’s good: I never thought I’d be able to give my helmet a review beyond its comfort, quality and looks (all of which I liked a lot). Then I hit a car broadside at 70mph when it turned across my path. I flew down the road and tumbled along the tarmac unconscious. I broke ...

Scorpion Exo-1000

Dan Aspel, 12 October 2011 17:05

Scorpion Exo-1000, £259.99Miles covered/time: 600/two months What’s good: Surprisingly, the inflatable cheek pads inside the Scorpion EXO-1000 aren’t just a gimmick. The extra support they provide is reassuring as they manage to expand without exerting too much pressure against any one area. The pump and release buttons are well placed on the inside of the chin guard and are as generally ...

Bell M5X Daytona

Ped Baker, 03 August 2011 15:40

Bell M5X Daytona helmet Miles covered/time: 1500/four months What’s good: If you’re over 40 years old the sight of a Bell Helmets logo will almost certainly spark a little interest. In the ’70s and ’80s if you wanted the best lid money could buy you bought a Bell Star. The 2011 M5X has a few of the features that made those ...

Helmet review: Arai Viper GT

Andy Downes, 26 November 2010 15:00

Arai Viper GT helmet, from £239 on www.mcnshop.com Miles covered/time: 40,000/three years What’s good? This is the lid I use every day but it’s about to be replaced because it has seen so many miles. It’s being replaced with a new version. It’s comfortable, doesn’t have big noise-generating air scoops and can handle hot or cold conditions with ease. It ...

Helmet review: Shoei Qwest helmet

Simon Brown, 22 September 2010 16:25

Shoei Qwest helmet, £339.99Miles covered/time: 1500/two monthsWhat’s good? Ignoring the name – which sounds like it ought to belong to a low-graphics dungeons and dragons game for the Sinclair Spectrum – this is an excellent helmet. The wide aperture amazed me from the word go – the field of vision is stunning and far broader than the Shoei Raid II ...
