April 8, 2009

There are currently some good deals around if you are looking at buying yourself a new crash helmet.  I’ve come across these for some of the HJC range.  If you are just starting out on a bike and are looking to buy your first set of gear then you can’t go far wrong with these.  They are also suitable as a second standby helmet and are all being sold at affordable prices.

The helmet size conversion chart is at the bottom of this entry and you may also want to take a look at this entry Choosing The Correct Size Motorcycle Helmet to make sure you choose the right size for your head 🙂

Firstly the HJC IS-16 Range available

These helmets got a 2* Sharp Helmet safety rating.. The helmets are priced at £132.99 and are available in the following designs.

There is something to be said about a black crash helmet, I tend to buy plain black ones every time.  This has a very subtle design on it and I quite like this one 🙂
