Stevenage-based clothing retailer, Bike Stop, are bringing back their helmet trade-in, offering customers 20% off a new helmet when they hand over a five-year-old model (with a receipt to prove it).
If you can’t prove your helmet’s age or your current lid is under the five year mark, you can still trade it in for a 15% discount on a new one. If you were in the market for an AGV Pista GP-R - Gran Premio, for example, a five-year-old helmet with receipt would be worth almost £180.
"There are plenty of people out there who don’t realise the importance of wearing a helmet that meets the highest modern safety standards," says Martin Brown, Director of Bike Stop.
"This campaign is to help riders boost their safety, get discounts on great products and enjoy being out on the road with greater peace of mind."
Research conducted by insurance firm, Carole Nash, suggests that 40% of UK motorcyclists are using a helmet that is more than five-years-old. Even more worryingly, 63% of riders wear a helmet that has been dropped.
If you’re in either of these categories, this offer would be a great way to refresh your kit and stay safe. You have until the end of March to call into Bike Stop to take advantage.
