Most manufacturers recommend replacing motorcycle helmets every two to four years, but many riders postpone this, often because they are reluctant to spend money renewing something that appears to be serviceable.
However, according to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, helmets need to be replaced every few years, even if apparently undamaged, as their protective qualities may deteriorate with time and wear.
So Infinity Motorcycles have introduced a novel scheme to encourage motorcyclists to upgrade their old helmets, by offering up to £100 off the new price of a helmet bought in any of their showrooms or from their mail order department.
Infinity stock a wide selection of helmets from leading brands, including Arai, HJC, Nolan, Schuberth, Shoei and X-Lite.
Customers can part exchange their current helmet, no matter how old and tatty, and get money off any new helmet selling for over £200.
Part exchange values start at £50 against helmets over £200 (e.g. HJC HQ-1 Carbon), rising to £60 for those over £300 (e.g. Schuberth R1) and £80 off helmets selling for more than £400 (e.g. Shoei X-Spirit).
Maximum discount is £100 off helmets retailing for over £500 (e.g. the Arai RX-7) – equivalent to 25% discount.
With eight stores across the UK Infinity is one of the UK’s biggest chains and its buying power enables the company to pass on substantial savings to customers.
