Helmet advice

#1 Unread post by Shalom Rider » Sun Jul 22, 2018 4:47 pm

I need a new helmet, I’ve had my LS2 FF370 for over 5 years.

Should I go to a shop or buy online?

Where is the best place to buy online?

You should go to a shop, try on the helmet you're considering. Wear it around the shop for at least 20 minutes, see if any pressure points develop. My wife once had to give away a fairly pricey Nolan that felt OK when worn for 5 minutes..... but would develop pressure points if worn longer.
