Can anyone recommend a decent motorcycle helmet, please (need an adults and a child's one)?

Hi all.

Hubby needs to replace his motorcycle helmet which is years old, but we don't really know where to start looking and what to look for.

His needs a full face helmet, nothing flashy, not Arai money but not a random name either.

Am also in the market for a decent helmet for our (nearly) 10 year old

Can anyone please advise what to look for and some possible brands? Hubby suggested Shoei? Thanks

AGV were always a good range alternative but you really need to try them before buying. Go to a stockist with a good range and see what manufacturer has the best fit for you and for the right money. I always buy Shoei myself as it has the best fit for me.

The shop on MCN's website currently has an offer on a Shoei XR-1100 in black or white. Reduced from 329.99 to 219.99. Looking at the reviews it's a great helmet and from a good make. I had a Shoei helmet for years and it served me well. The good thing about buying from MCN is that they offer a return service for up to 365 days, they also do kids helmets in a separate section with the same return policy.

Here's a link to the MCN page for the black one: http://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/40571

visit all your local bike dealers and buy the one that fits the best in your price range

My wife says she has tried various helmets of different colours and still not found one she likes also.

wouldn't buy a helmet online without first trying it on for size and comfort.. Loose fitting helmets are dangerous..

A Shoe bought from a shop, liked the lightness and colour scheme, price of it but found out later how noisy it was when doing 160 mph on the M1..

So after youse finish your little chinwag you finally realise the OP ain't even here :p

Thanks for the advice.

I also think it's better to try on first but I know some websites allow returns and also don't know what to send him to look at, I guess shoei it is then

I don't even know where our nearest motorcycle clothing shop is - our local Hein Gericke closed down as well as another one (I can't think of the name)

They may allow returns but possibly at your expence, worth clarifying first..tbh some of the cheaper lesser known brands perform better in safety test than pricey ones..
