It’s not often that we can report on a new 5 star crash helmet being revealed. But hot on the heels of the five star results for the Shoei X-Spirit III, SHARP have announced that the Viper RS1010 has achieved five star status too.
That means it joins a very select bunch of helmets to achieve SHARP’s maximum safety rating – 53 helmets to be exact – with only a small number of those still on sale.
So the Viper’s a real find.
- Full face helmet
- SHARP 5 star rated
- Carbon fibre shell
- 1.3Kg (that’s light)
- On sale for under £190
The Viper RS1010 is a carbon fibre full face helmet that weighs in at a lightweight 1.3Kg. It has all the usual features you’d expect in a top-rated crash helmet in terms of multi-point ventilation, removable lining, double-d ring fastener – but no real bells and whistles beyond that.
Thing is, you’ll be getting a SHARP 5 star, carbon fibre, lightweight helmet that is being retailed for under £190. That’s a steal.
We’ll bring you more on the Viper RS 1010 as and when we hear what owners think about it.
