Simpson Helmets available from Triumph Glasgow

Few helmets have made such a mark on the bike world as the Simpson Bandit.

First launched in the late 1970s, the original Bandit was made in Texas by Bill Simpson and was actually a NASCAR helmet design that was technically illegal in Britain. It was a super-high quality lid, but since it was built for American car racing, it didn’t comply with UK motorcycle helmet rules.

Now riders can re-create their biking youth, with the latest Simpson bike helmet – the new Venom range which is totally compliant with ECE 22-05 regulations, making them fully road legal to wear on a motorcycle.

That hasn't affected their overall design though – the Simpson style is still clear to see, and Simpson have also updated the materials and build quality for 2018.

The standard Venom boasts the very latest composite Maxx-3C shell material with fully removable, washable lining, an advanced venting and hot-air exhaust system, inner sun visor and a quick-release Pin lock Max Vision equipped visor. A Max vision insert is also included in the box.

All the 2018 Simpson Helmets are produced in three shell sizes, with fittings from XS to XXL.
