With due respect to the posters above, NEVER BUY A HELMET WITHOUT TRYING IT ON FIRST!

A correctly fitting helmet is the most important piece of motorcycling equipment you can buy. It may just save your life! There is no need to spend £500 on a lid, there are plenty of cheap safe helmets available to suit all budgets. The most important thing is the fit. There has recently been a survey carried out which lists all helmets and tells you how safe they are CLICK HERE for the link.

This Lazer LZ6 helmet scored 5 Stars and costs around £65.

Here is a list of 5 Star helmets from the SHARP tests.

Several years ago I had a fairly big bike crash and my £129 helmet saved my life as I bounced several times across the bonnet of a car and across the road. The visor was torn off and the helmet suffered many deep scratches but remained intact, and this is what protected my startling good looks!

Welcome to the world of motorcycling, but please, buy a new correctly fitting helmet!

Getting the right fit
Your motorcycle helmet is a vital piece of equipment designed to protect your head in the event of an accident. To get the best protection your helmet needs to provide a really good fit. A badly fitting helmet can come off in an accident, even if the chin strap is done up.

Always remember - Helmets are produced in a range of sizes to satisfy a mass market. Your head shape and size are unique to you, so take time to use the following tips when selecting your new helmet:

1 GET YOUR HEAD MEASURED
First have your head size measured before you try any helmet on. Measure around the fullest part of your head just above the ears, taking the measurement at the forehead. The measurement will correspond to a particular size in the model range you are interested in. This is a good starting point! If you want a particular brand or model, do not be tempted to go for another size if yours is out of stock - wait and get the correct size!

2 TRY IT ON
Once you have your size, place the helmet firmly onto your head. Secure the chin strap so that you can fit two fingers between it and your jaw. If the helmet has a quick release buckle take time to adjust the strap. Once fitted, you should be able to feel the inside of the helmet against all parts of your head, without feeling 'pressure points' or it leaving red marks. Once you are happy wear the helmet for a few minutes to make sure it is comfortable.

3 TOO TIGHT - TOO LOOSE?
With the strap secured, try rotating the helmet from side to side. With a full face model, your cheeks should follow the movement of the helmet and stay in contact with the cheek-pads. Make sure the helmet does not rotate on your head. The cheek-pads should provide a firm, comfortable fit. Next tilt the helmet forward and back. It should stay in position and not move. If it slips forward or back it is unlikely to be the correct size.

4 DOES IT COME OFF?
Finally, check that the helmet won’t easily come off in an accident. Tilt your head forward and have someone try to roll your helmet off your head by carefully applying an upward force to the rear of the helmet at its base. If you can roll if off in the showroom (with the chinstrap done up) it will be sure to come off in an accident! Ensure your new helmet comes with either an acceptable EC or BS approval marking and that the seller provides sufficient instructions for the use and care of the helmet. Read the instruction booklet to make sure you know how best to look after your helmet.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Buying a second hand helmet is not recommended. There could be damage you can't see. You are also unlikely to get the right fit. You must be cautious and only buy if you are satisfied that the helmet fits and is in a usable condition as designed. If you are in any doubt, contact the manufacturer for further information.

Which is why the Helmet im selling - a Shoei Raid 2 is very popular and the buyer could easily go into any bike shop and try one on for size and then buy mine-worn only once

I would never buy a new sub £100 helmet - poor visor systems, rubbish lining

I'd recommend the HJC carbon lid which you can now get sub 200, ultra light very good plush lining and the one i have has saved me twice when binning my aprilia at oulton

Never ever buy a helmet second hand.. never mind "it's only been worn once" could easily take a beating in the royal mail transit. Don't skimp on the helmet. Stick to Shoei, HJC, Soumy.. Not cheap but what value is your head?
