retro motorcycle helmets 1024x641 - Retro Motorcycle Helmet Showcase

Retro motorcycle helmets are becoming more popular and there’s a wider range than ever.

They are the opposite of a modern race-replica helmet. Fizzy drinks advertising and in-your-face graphics are out, replaced with chunky lines, simple designs and classy colour schemes.

The great thing is that even though they look retro, they all feature state of the art technology. It’s important that your lid has an ECE-2205 rating or a 6658:1985 British Standard BSI Kitemark or it won’t be road legal. All of our picks meet the requirements.

If you fancy a bit of retro style, to finish off your look, then check out our showcase. We’ve gathered a wide variety of classic motorbike helmets, to whet your appetite.

Motorcycle Helmet FAQs

How do I know if a helmet is road legal?

In order to be road legal a motorcycle helmet has to have one of the following: a British Standard BS 6658:1985 and carry the BSI Kitemark or a UNECE Regulation 22.05 or a European Economic Area member standard offering at least the same safety and protection as BS 6658:1985, and carry a mark equivalent to the BSI Kitemark.

How do I know what size helmet I need?

It’s always a good idea to visit your local motorcycle dealer and ask for help from one of their staff. You can not only find the right size helmet but you can try on different makes and models to find the best fit for you. It pays to buy a helmet from a dealer as you’d be able to get a good fit, personal service and they’ll be able to help you out if you have any future issues.

If you are ordering online, use a fabric tape measure to measure the complete circumference of your head. Start across your forehead and run the tape measure past your ear, around the back of your head and past your other ear. Join it back up with where you started and that length, in centimetres, is the size helmet you should try on.
