Helmets

First up the KBC VR-2R Reaper full face helmet – On offer at just $99.99

This has a UK SHARP safety rating of 2*

kbc-vr2-reaper-helmet

With a high-performance design ready for street and track alike, the flagship KBC VR-2R is a true racer’s helmet.

Engineered for aerodynamic airflow and stability at high speeds, the KBC VR-2R platform features reduced shell dimensions and overall size. The eye aperture, strap positions, and shell ergonomics have been fine tuned to increase peripheral vision, improve head maneuverability, reduce neck strain, and dampen wind noise.

Features and Benefits

  • Lightweight, sturdy TriComp shell is constructed with advanced Vacuum Lamination System
  • Dual-Intake Ventilation System (DIVS) provides efficient airflow draw, circulation, venting, and control for ultimate comfort

Next up is the the Arashi Turbo on offer at $49.99.

Now I know that some people look down on cheaper helmets like these, as they feel that there is no way they are going to be as good as something which costs $500.  But here in the UK we have the Sharp Helmet Safety Rating scheme which puts helmets through a series of tests and rates them according to their performance.  These tests rate how well the helmets perform over and above the minimum safety levels and these scored 3* out of a possible 5*, which for a cheaper helmet really isn’t bad at all, especially when you consider that a lot of the more expensive helmets are not scoring as high.

arashi-turboarashi-turbo

Arashi combines superb design, outstanding features, and world-class quality in each and every helmet. Engineered and crafted to provide all-day comfort and protection.

Features and Benefits

  • High-Impact Polycarbonate (HIP) outer shell is strong and lightweight

This helmet scored 4* in the Sharp Helmet Safety Rating tests

shark-s650-frame

One of the most technologically advanced helmets for street riders – and clearly one of the best-looking helmets on the market. Shoei’s innovation and cutting-edge design makes the RF-1000 a premium motorcycle helmet.

Aerodynamically superior, the RF-1000 full-face helmet delivers high-speed performance and ventilation that is wind-tunnel proven. A perfect fit is achieved through removable, adjustable cheekpads and a 3D comfort-liner system that won’t shift during high-speed riding.

The legendary Shoei fit is developed from 3 shell sizes and 4 sizes of EPS liners. The RF-1000’s shell is made from Shoei’s proprietary Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) multifiber technology, which embeds ultrastrong organic fibers into fiberglass. The result is a lightweight yet strong outer shell that is better able to absorb and disperse the force of an impact.

Features and Benefits

Aerodynamic Shell Design

  • Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind-tunnel and rider testing
  • The Aero Stabilizer dramatically reduces drag and lift coefficients, thus diminishing rider fatigue and increasing performance

Two-Layer EPS Liner System

  • Integrated Upper Air Intake minimizes air turbulence and maximizes air stream in all riding positions
  • Outlet holes in the Aero Stabilizer allow warm air to be exhausted
  • The lower air intake provides an additional source of air flow
  • The neck outlet vent allows for effective air exhaust

Lightweight, Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+)

  • High-performance-fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra-lightweight, rigid, and resilient

Anti-Fog System

  • The lower air intake provides air flow that helps to diminish shield fogging

3D Interior Liner

  • Removable interior cheekpads available in optional sizes for a custom fit
  • Chinstrap cover can easily be removed to allow for cleaning or replacement

Standard Chinstrap Clip

  • Neatly secures chinstrap

CX-1V Faceshield and Lock System

  • Quick-Release Base Plate (QRBP) System allows tool-free shield removal
  • A wide, 3-dimensionally-curved shield offers increased peripheral vision and optical clarity
  • Scratch-resistant coating
  • 100% protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays

Specifications

  • Certifications: DOT 218; Snell M2005
  • Weight (approx.): 3.28 lbs. / 1490 grams

Unless otherwise noted, helmet comes standard with clear faceshield.

In fact, although the Hellracer has less armoring compared with the Duel, it still maintains a high level of protection.
By adding streetriding comforts, the Hellracer’s undoubtedly aggressive origins are delicately balanced, making it suitable for road and racetrack alike.
