Award Winning

There's a reason why our competitors spend so much time watching what we do, we believe in customer service levels beyond the norm and we're always looking for ways to improve. In late 2013 we were recognised for this by the bike industry's No.1 publication, Motorcycle News. 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!

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.

Click & Collect

If you can't be around to receive your delivery during the day, just use our click & collect option. We offer delivery to a shop local to you using the DPD Pickup network. Most pick up points are open outside of normal working hours and will keep your package so you can collect at a time to suit you.

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).

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.

Great value helmet but......

First things first, Great value helmet, I loved the color and graphics. It doesn't show fingerprints even though its very glossy. Comfortable to wear and padding is good. Internal sun visor is good. Sharp 5star rating on a helmet that is very economical to buy. Forgot to mention comes with pinlock inset. I bought this for pillion passenger and its been very well recieved by the pillion. There is some noise with out earplus but using ear plugs makes tales away noise . Delivery was fast and price was reasonable. Would buy from this website sportsbikeshop anymore.

Great helmet

Really pleased with my great looking HJC IS17 helmet. Very good build quality, fit & vision at an equally good discounted price. It does produce some wind noise above 50mph (rare event on my scooter!) but ear plugs soon remedy that. The visor mechanism, ventilation system & internal sun visor all work very well plus it has the preferred double D ring closure system. Kat at the Leeds store was very helpful & knowledgeable, I'd never considered stuffing gloves into a helmet can reduce the lifespan due to contamination. Great service from Sportsbikeshop once more.

Lovely bit of kit!

I bought this as I only had a flip top and ride through the winter months. This helmet is very comfortable, great ventilation and visibility. Plush inside, great finish outside. I bought this when on special offer and it definitely is fantastic value for money for £100! Highly recommended!

Expected better

Pros - nice design, great drop down sun visor, great pin lock, neat securing popper for the excess chin strap. Locking down visor. Cons - horrific wind noise, my old cheaper MT helmet was a lot better, have to wear ear plugs as it's deafening and can't hear my Akrapovic without them. And D ring chin strap can be a bit fiddly now and then.

Awesome helmet, it's cheap, build quality seems great, 5star Sharp, BMS sticker on the back so I can wear it on track... I wore it for the first time at Rockingham a few days ago. The most noticeable thing is it is so much quieter than the Spada or Shoei I have used before. I'd say at about 110mph it's the same as the Spada at 60-70 and the Shoei at 80. No need for earplugs, and can hear the engine over the wind noise. Comfortable. Complaints... The D rings are more fiddly than most because the strap is quite short. Very hard to get it over your head without completely unthreading the rings (other helmets I can loosen them and lift it over) Haven't work it in the rain yet, but I'm concerned water would get in the visor mechanism Visibility, like most helmets could be better. It's not bad, but it always irks me with every helmet that they don't open the visor hole a bit wider in select places.

Awesome helmet

5 star Sharp rating. Great value - very comfy - great fit. The visor hinge mechanism not as good as my Shoei NXR, but that's the only noticeable difference in quality.
