Top 5 Flip Up Helmets For Under £250

Concussion Awareness Day was on the 16th September. This got the We Buy Any Bike team thinking about the use of helmet safety in motorcycling...

It was more than forty years ago that the initial debates began. On “Motor Cycles (Wearing of Helmets) Regulations” in the House of Commons. Views were divided. Some saying that forcing people to wear helmets was an infringement of personal liberty.

This debate was a big part of motorcycling history. It’s almost as if people didn’t really consider motorbiking too dangerous... this was until people paid attention to it!

England now looks at the importance of helmets very differently. It's hard to imagine a time when people would hop on their bike. Boot it down the motorway with a bare head.

We now understand that head injuries can be caused at very low speeds. According to the latest research... Motorcyclists in the UK are nearly 40 times more likely to die in a crash than a car driver. This is especially shocking when you think bikers only make up about 1% of the traffic on our roads. In these accidents, the most dangerous thing is always a head injury. In some of the latest UK statistics, the main cause of death is a violent impact to the head... Almost 80%. When the head suffers an impact it forces the brain to move in the skull. If it moves too much it causes life-threatening damage.

Statistics also say that helmets reduce the risk of fatal head injury by around 50%. As the vice president of Bell Helmets says:

“Dress for the crash, not the ride.”

We decided to talk to our friends at GetGeared to find out a little more about motorcycle helmets on the market at moment. They have put together their top 5 flip-up helmets for us!
