Tester Si­mon Brown, 1200 miles, four months OK so it might look a bit fancy dress, but this was my hel­met of choice dur­ing the great heat­wave of 2018. There are no high-tech vents, but the lack of vi­sor means air­flow isn’t ex­actly a prob­lem. Be­ing thwacked by in­sects is an is­sue, but we’re good for air­flow. It looks the busi­ness too and the fin­ish is great. I’ve paired it with Dex­ter Bin­cole gog­gles (£35.99, with in­ter­change­able smoked and clear lenses) and the combo works a treat on my yel­low and black Ducati Scram­bler. The shell is fi­bre­glass with a faux leather in­te­rior and the hel­met is very light at 1000g. There are pop­pers for a peak and a re­tain­ing loop for gog­gles plus a dou­ble-d strap. It’s tested to EC 22.05 but that light­weight feel makes it feel less pro­tec­tive than some. Qual­ity +++ ++ Value +++ ++ www.sports­bikeshop.com
