15+ Years Online

We've been serving the motorcycle community for more than 15 years now and in that time we've grown to be the largest online retailer of motorcycle clothing & accessories in the UK.

Free Returns*

We now offer free returns on any UK Mainland order (excluding Highlands) over £25. Most importantly, returning an item to us is super simple. Just click here or on the 'create a return' link located at the bottom of every page, and create your return in under 1 minute. You can choose from any UPS Access point close to you where you can drop off your return at a time convenient for you.

365 Day Returns

We simply don't believe in making the sale and moving on, we want to make sure our customers are happy with their purchase. That's why we now offer a full 365 day returns period. Simply relax, take your time and make sure it's right! All we ask is that you try the items within your own home and return with the tags intact.

Free UK Delivery

It's really simple, if you spend over £25 with us, delivery is free of charge to any mainland UK address (excluding Islands & Highlands).

Award Winning

As retailer of the year, we feel it's our duty to constantly better our offering and if you have any ideas, we'd love to hear from you!

Unassuming cool

Purchased for my better half, fantastic finish and great quality she deserves nothing less. Worn to Classic TT and many folk commented upon the helmet once she had decided on peak or visor, visor or peak!! Great carrying bag she loves it and hasn't lost it yet!

Best first time fit of all the open face helmets I tried almost as good as my first Bell in 1982 & that was second hand! Excellent quality product, individual design & superb in house service from the staff.

Classic Helmet

Classic design and excellent build quality. Fit is good as is comfort., peak is tricky to fit. Excellent service from Sportsbikeshop less than 24 hours from order to receiving the helmet.

Nice retro helmet

Classic helmet with fine build quality. Looks good and comes with full face tinted visor. Two down sides. The clip on peak doesn't fit and if you try and out it on it scratches the helmet and the padding inside is a little thin.

Safety with style

Get this out of the way first; Sportsbikeshop offer the best service I've ever had from motorcycle equipment retailers and repeat buying is a certainty. The helmet looks well made and is well finished in all respects. The fit of the helmet is good as one might expect from Bell especially with a design (physical) that they've had plenty of time to perfect. The design (graphics) is also excellent hitting many people's hotspots of quazi carbon and gold. The only negative for me is that I find the rear padding where it meets the nape of the neck to be slightly too thick which pushes the helmet forward and low on my brow making goggles (style again) difficult to seat; I am hoping that wearing the helmet will squish the padding a bit and solve the irritation. Other than that my only surprise is the price; no idea why it's so cheap for such a quality item!

Classy cool helmet

Purchased this helmet for wearing on vintage scooter and it's the bees knees. The finish on the helmet is excellent and the little touches are very smart like the red stitching and the copper coloured band round the helmet. The fit is excellent and being an open face this lid doesn't make you look as if your away to be fired out a cannon. Negative is that the strap is a bit fiddly but after using for a while you get the hang of it.

Throwbacks and retro lids are nice, but nothing beats an original. Back in 1954 Bell founder Roy Richter formed his first helmet out of fibreglass and named it the "500." Bell's Custom 500 pays homage to Richter's original design while adding modern protective technology to bring the design up-to-date. The Deluxe comes with a synthetic leather helmet bag, 520 snap black peak and a snap fixed dark smoke visor.
