Product Review: Acerbis Active helmet

1 of 1

Acerbis Active helmet, £124.95

Time used: Two months/1400 miles

What’s good? The Active is a budget dual-purpose lid that’s comfortable and surprisingly quiet, making it an ideal everyday helmet. Some thought has been put into the peak’s aerodynamics as the wind doesn’t continuously flick the lid up at speed like it does with other dual-purpose lids. It comes with an internal sun visor, which is incredibly handy.

What’s not? Unlike the AGV Dual Evo, you can’t use goggles with this helmet, which is a shame. It could also do with more vents as the visor fogs up quickly and it’s heavier than my equivalent AGV dual-purpose lid (but it is nearly £150 cheaper than the AGV).
