KIT CHOOSER

Q Which are the best bright­ly­coloured lids for road rid­ing?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - GARAGE -

I want to get a new hel­met and was think­ing of go­ing down the day-glo route. Does be­ing day­glo re­ally make any dif­fer­ence to your vis­i­bil­ity on the road? Mark Wil­liams, Dal­ston

A An­swered by Keith Rois­set­ter, In­fin­ity Mo­tor­cy­cles There’s ac­tu­ally never been a study, which has proved de­fin­i­tive ben­e­fits when it comes to hel­met colour. It’s one of those ur­ban myths – long per­pet­u­ated by var­i­ous bod­ies (no­tably these days, CBT train­ers) which has en­tered pop­u­lar folk­lore. It de­pends on the back­ground scenery, and frankly if some­one can’t see a bike with its head­light on com­ing to­wards them, then what dif­fer­ence is a coloured hel­met go­ing to make?

The HJC FG-ST Crono (£199.99) is a nice mix of day­glo and black with a built-in sun vi­sor as is the Schu­berth R2 – Neme­sis Yel­low (£419.99) The Arai Ax­ces 3 in Flow Green (£379.99) is an ef­fec­tive three­colour mix. If you’re af­ter a flipfront con­sider the Caberg Duke Leg­end (£189.99) or maybe the fluro orange (the colour which is gen­er­ally ac­cepted to be the most vis­i­ble) Scor­pion EXO-920. (£159.99)
