The RT-33 is a very competent helmet. It’s a composite fibre full face that was tested by SHARP and awarded an impressive four stars (out of five). Not only is it safe, it’s quiet and comes with a Pinlock in the box. RRP of the plain versions was £329 and it’s now available in black or white for under £200. Graphics versions available for £219. Grab yourself a proper bargain here.
Black all-season jacket that’s got a thermal lining, CE armour at shoulders and elbows and has a waterproof liner. Now with 40% off taking it to £59.99 at Sportsbikeshop.
Shoei’s fantastic, light weight motocross helmet. You can read all about it in our review here and you can find the deal over at FC Moto (Germany) here.
Here’s a decent deal on the now discontinued flip-front from X-Lite. Read our review here – it’s SHARP 4 star safety rated and does well in just about every respect. You’ll find a wide range of colours and sizes available at our German recommended retailer FCMoto here.
Loads of different colours available in a wide range of sizes – Arlen Ness make some quality gear and these cowhide boots with plastic protection and titanium slider should sort you out for many years. Click the link to see the entire range (and don’t forget you’ll need to add shipping to those prices).
LS2 are getting a good reputation these days and this SHARP 3 star rated helmet is now available at half price at FC-Moto. Don’t forget you’ll have to add shipping from them (cos they’re in Germany) but still, that’s a massive saving on a shiny new helmet for the new riding season. Not many sizes/colours available so hurry. Catch it here.
Don’t think this is on sale but just a great deal. I used one like this to go to the Bol last year and it was ace in the downpours. Black, 50 litre capacity with compression straps. It’s here.
If you’d like that Arai name on your forehead, the Rebel’s about the lowest-cost way to do it. It’s SHARP 3 star rated but definitely 5 star for comfort and exclusivity – check the helmet out for yourself.
OK, so it only scored 3 SHARP stars, but with a Pinlock antifog included and drop down sun visor, this is one hell of a helmet deal – find it here.
It’s being advertised at £129.99 – that’s probably off the full MRRP but still, it’s a great SHARP 4 star helmet in moody matt black for a decent price and available in all sizes – you’ll find it here at SportsBikeShop.
RST Striker Textile Jacket – £49.99 (35% off)
If you’re size XXL and are after a waterproof textile jacket with armour at a 35% saving, check the jacket on this link.
26th July 2015
Schuberth SR1 – size XL – £299
Now that’s a deal. A cutting edge sportsbike crash helmet for less than £300 when most are selling it for £500+. Not sure how many they’ll have left at that price but if you pop over to www.mcaleicester.co.uk you could pick yourself up one of the best track helmets around – going for a song.
5th June 2015
HJC FG-15 Carbon – £199
It might be discontinued now, but the FG15 is a decent lid (hjc fg 15 crash helmet review) and Lidsdirect.co.uk have got the carbon version on offer for £199 at the mo. The standard version was 1.4Kg which is pretty light so the carbon one will probably be around 1.2Kg which is very light for a SHARP four star rated helmet. Well worth look.
17th Apr 2015
HJC R-PHA 10 Plus – £175
Another crash helmet deal, this time at LidsDirect.co.uk – they’re selling the HJC R-PHA 10 Plus for £175 (should be about £250) available in the Furia red or white designs. For that you’ll be getting a decent fibreglass helmet with a Pinlock included. You can check out some of the specs here – though these are the plus versions with slighly improved vents and bigger Pinlock.
8th Apr 2015
Shark Speed-R Avenger – £200
Shark S-600 Exit – £90
Shark RSJ Jack Jet Helmet – £100
There’s a Spring sale going on at the Mega Motorcycle Store with the excellent Shark Speed-R being knocked out at a smidge under £200 (that’s £50-80 off RRP) and lesser savings on the S-600 full face and RSJ open face/jet helmet. Good deals all and worth checking out.
6th Feb 2015
Lazer Paname modular helmet, incl bluetooth kit – £149
The Paname is a great flip-up, SHARP 4 star rated lid and Sportsbikeshop are knocking the titanium version out (S & M sizes only) for £149 – with a free bluetooth into the bargain (though ask about fitting the mic first – some owners are struggling).
28th Nov 2014
Shark Race-R – £200
This is a SHARP 5 star rated full face lid that originally retailed for over £300 but is now a smidge under £200 at helmetsuperstore. A great one for sportsbike riders this as it was designed for track use in cahoots with professional racers.
26th Nov 2014
Shoei Qwest for sale at £250
There’s about 100 notes off the RRP of the Shoei Qwest at bike-gear.com. There are better deals about but usually in plain colours and from overseas dealers. The Qwest is a cracking 5 star safety rated lid and well worth the money.
1st Nov 2014
Shark Speed R (£100), AGV Skyline (£100), Shark S900 (£50)
There’s what looks like a decent sale going on at the megamotorcyclestore from 1st Nov. Lots of helmets for sale including these notable highlights above. We’re not sure how many there’ll be of each but worth popping over there on the 1st to check out their deals.
30th Oct 2014
HJC CS14 – £60 (25% discount)
It’s a three star SHARP rated full face helmet for £60 from infinity motorcycles. It wasn’t the most expensive crash helmet from new but it’s a reasonable performer at about a 25% discount from RRP so worth a look if you’re buying on a tight budget.
28th Oct 2014
AGV AX8 Dual Evo Tour – quality dual sports helmet over 40% off
The AGV AX8 priced at £190 is a lot of helmet for the money. It’s a composite shelled, dual-sports helmet, meaning it’s suitable for on and off-road use. It hasn’t been SHARP tested for safety, but AGV are generally very good (our joint 3rd safest helmet brand overall) and at 40% off list price, it’s a great deal. The deal extends to two colour schemes only – white/black/red and black/white versions. Check it out here on sportsbikeshop.
23rd Oct 2014
Arai RX-7 GP for sale at £455
Lots of people love Arais because they have great build quality and quality control meaning you get a lovely reliable helmet. And this one’s safe too, having scored 4/5 stars by SHARP. Bikestop have it on sale at 35% off RRP meaning it was £700 and it’s now a much more reasonable £455. Bikestop will do free delivery too and have a 90 day refund policy. Obviously, you could check out our recommended helmets and buy one of those instead – but if you simply must have an Arai RX-7, then this ain’t a bad deal.
20th Oct 2014
Marushin 778 Storm helmet for £50.
Marushin’s are getting a reasonable reputation for making some safe crash helmets. This 778 helmet hasn’t been SHARP tested yet (though the 777 rated a maximum five stars) but it’s a fibreglass helmet with a seat belt fastener and has a good spec on paper. It’s reduced to £50 at J&S, down from £120 so that’s gotta be worth a good look?
17th Oct 2014
AGV K4 helmets on sale at £100
CMC have got a range of colours for sale at a smidge under £100. It’s a good helmet too – SHARP 4 star rated with a composite fibreglass shell. It’s no frills but at this price, it should do the job nicely.
15th Oct 2014
AGV GT Veloce – 35% off
It’s a SHARP 5 star rated full face helmet with a carbon kevlar shell. The GT Veloce orginally retailed for over £300 but Sportsbikeshop have got them discounted to £240 in a range of planish colour schemes. Great safety at a good price so worth checking out.
2nd Oct 2014
Shark RSJ ST – 35% off
If you’re after a decent open face lid with internal sun visor then you might want to give the Shark RSJ ST Starry a look at Sportsbikeshop. They usually retail for about £250 but they’re on sale at £160. Nice. Not sure how safe they are but Shark have a great reputation, coming in at equal 3rd in our all time safety review, so it should be fine.
31st Sept 2014
Held CT-1200 crash helmet on sale at £200
The Held CT-1200 is a light weight flip-up lid with a shell made from carbon fibre. It’s got a sun visor too and it’s pinlock ready. It RRPs for about £330 but G not SHARP tested but Get Geared are knocking some in plain colours out for £200. Well worth a look we’d say.
25th Sept 2014
Nolan N63 – Lorenzo graphics – £a ton
Over at Ministry of Bikes (MOB) they’ve got the Nolan N63 in black/gaudy graphics for sale at a ton. It was never tested for safety, but it’s a Nolan so you should be ok there (Nolan group helmets scored 3 places in our safest helmets top 10). The N63 is light and is Pinlock and Ncom communicator ready. All-for-£100!
24th Sept 2014

22nd Sept 2014
Caberg Vox Daytona – £90
It’s not a massive discount, though every bits worth having, but the Caberg Vox is for sale at a smidge under £90 at Infinity motorcycles at the mo. Discount or not, that’s a great value helmet for not very much wodge. It’s a SHARP 5 star rated (that’s really safe) full face helmet with an integral sun visor.
19th Sept 2014
AGV Numo – £199 down to £129
There seem to be quite a few deals on AGVs around at the moment – which is good because they’re cracking lids and scored 3rd place in our safest helmet brands showdown last time. Anyhow, I digress. The AGV Numo is a 4 star rated flip-up helmet that was about £250 when launched but Bikestop are bashing them out for £129 in black or white. We’ve not tested it yet, but that sounds like a deal to us.
17th Sept 2014
AGV K4 & K3 – £115 or £90
Sportsbikeshop have also got a range of AGV K4s and K3s for sale – K3s from about £90 and K4s from about £115 (depending on graphics). That’s pretty good going; both are current helmets and K3s used to be somewhere between £120 & £150 and K4s around £180 so that’s a fair old discount for a brace of SHARP 4 star helmets. You can read our quick review of the AGV K3 here or see the deals on AGV helmets here.
13th Sept 2014
Shoei XR-1100 – £189
The deals on the XR1100 keep on getting better. Sportsbikeshop are knocking off the plain white version for £189 – that’s a cracking deal for what was, until recently, our top rated helmet. They’re doing it because it’s been discontinued – but that just means better deals for us. To read our review on the lid, check this out. To see the deal at Sportsbikeshop, click here.
8th Sept 2014
Schuberth S2 on offer – £350
About average for safety, but a great crash helmet in every other respect – the Schuberth S2 is on sale at Helmetcity.co.uk for £350. It’s probably safe to say they’re in the less popular colour schemes but still, you get a lot of helmet for the money (they originally retailed for £450). Check out our S2 helmet review here.
Shoei XR1100 deal
It’s been discontinued so helmetcity.co.uk are getting rid. But it’s still a fantastic helmet (in fact it’s one of our top 10 lids) so it’s definitely worth your brass – and they’re being offloaded for £250.
7th Sept 2014

The CS14 was never that expensive – if memory serves me it was about £80 when new. But www.lidsdirect.co.uk have it for £29.99 in silver at the moment which is a steal. It’s three star rated so not the best in terms of safety, but HJCs are usually pretty well built and it’s rated as safer than many helmets from better known manufacturers – so well worth a look.
17th August 2014

30th July 2014
HJC CLST Union
It was already cheap, retailing for around the ton, but there’s a mini helmet sale going on at www.infinitymotorcycles.com at the mo, who are knocking it out at a smidge under £50. Good deal for an HJC full face helmet in particularly retiring colours! Ahem.
