Hi all,

Thus far, I've been using a full-face helmet I had from when I had motorbikes, and fewer children. However, it is starting to get a bit old now, so I really should consider buying a new one. Do you have any recommendations as to where I could buy a an open-face helmet? The only place I can think of would be Demon Tweeks online. Is there anywhere in the North East that people know of, so I can try it on before buying?
Cheers,

Graham

I would suggest that you check the requirement for the tracks or locations you wish to use, I believe some do not accept motorcycle helmets even new ones and some no open face at all. I have a helmet full face which complies for motorcycle competition but seems not acceptable for all car use.

Thanks Norrie. Thus far I've had no issues with my bike helmet at track days at Cadwell, Croft, Oulton Park or Donnington. I'm driving my 1-series coupe, so I don't need a full-face helmet and I thought an open face helmet would make life easier not having to remove my glasses every time I take the helmet on and off!
