Poll: Which racer had the best helmet design?

Bike racers aren't known for their taste, over the years we've had everything from donkey ears to dart boards daubed on helmets. But there are a few classic designs that have remained as fresh as the day they were dreamt up. Here's our shortlist, you pick the winner   pollcomment

John Cooper

Another vote for John Cooper. Truly original and influential. I don't recall which Japanese team it was where every rider had the eyes, but I do remember that Nakano kept them when he left the team.

Fast Freddie

Another vote here for Freddie Spencer's Arai. Whilst I appreciate the sometimes amazing artwork on modern helmets, the simpler designs always worked best for me, and Freddie's helmets just looked so good with a black visor on.

Also, mustn't forget Marco's design. Classic simplicity at its best.

Helmet Poll....

..What about Michael Rutter's "Blade" helmet ,and Chris Walkers original colour lid ,or any of the Monster Energy lids currently worn by various riders in Motogp ,WSB ,BSB etc.Love the 3 claw "scratch" marks in vivid green.As for Rossi's lids.....virtually all of them have been stinkers..too complicated etc....but always recognisable is their only quality.
