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!

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.

200+ Top Brands

There simply isn't a better selection of biking brands anywhere in the UK and we're constantly updating every range to ensure you have the best choice available.

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.

60,000+ Reviews

If you're looking for advice on what to buy, you'll find over 60,000 independent product reviews which we've posted, unedited, for all to see.

Great Helmet

Took a while to choose the retro helmet I wanted for my new Harley, as my full face helmet just didn't cut it. Good fit and liner. Very pleased.

This helmet exceeded all expectations the moment it arrived in it's own Bell Leather and Suede Bag, WITH Visor (the Anti-Fog version) as well as other bits and pieces. Beautiful design and fit - quality product. The Sportsbikeshop Prices were also unbeatable.

Bell custom 500 deluxe

Always wanted one of these helmets so finally bit the bullet with sports bikeshop. Excellent quality open face helmet with a different fit from any helmet I ever had. Sits on your head like a cap and doesn't squeeze around the ears. Came with clip on visor, peak and carry bag Rapid delivery in 2 days from the UK.

Great design and fit

Ordered for my wife, we were a little sceptical about ordering without trying on, however the sizing and self measuring instructions were clear and it worked fine. The helmet is very well made, feels and looks like a quality product, which it is.

Great quality helmet

I have 4 Bell Helmets but this is my first open face. I am always a medium but I would recommend going up a size if you already have a Bell helmet and it's a tight fit.

The main reasons I used Sportsbikeshop for a helmet purchase was that I knew any problem with fit it would be very easy to exchange and the next day speed of delivery but no worries because it fitted perfectly ,it is a quality product with extras included of a peak,visor and a very nice hold-all , I am very please with the helmet and the value for money is tremendous .

Looks great, perfect fit.

After looking for my first open faced helmet I Decided on the custom 500. I Was a bit dubious on size as a lot of reviews said they come up smaller. I took the gamble and ordered Large as this is my usual size and I have to say it fits Perfectly. Really Happy with it and would definitely recommend.

Top quality helmet.

Really well made crash helmet. With a bell peak, visor, and lovely felt lined holdall included. All at typically great Sportsbikeshop price. Just one thing if buying this helmet. I measured my head before ordering, and it was 58cm,so ordered a medium, unfortunately it was way to tight, so had to return for a large, which hasn't arrived yet. Hopefully it'll fit OK!

Was absolutely over the moon with my purchase. Super cool and finished to perfection. Didn't want to use it tbh. Unfortunately I dropped it on my first outing so massively still grieving about that. Was a very snug fit to start and ordered a second helmet the next size up as wasn't sure it should be so tight but after a couple hours sat watching Tv in it the first choice now fits lovely. Little uncool to remove but more than satisfied and with a speedy delivery and packaged up well will definitely be looking for future purchases at sportsbike shop. Prob for the same Bell custom 500 delux unscratched. Love it and looks brill. Thanks SBS

Classic lid, well made and good price!

Excellent construction, very comfortable and fairly light. I ordered it for my scooter and it's perfect for that. I used the fitting guide and it was spot on. Delivery to Portugal was swift and arrived in pristine condition, not even a mark on the packaging. 2nd lid from sports bike shop sent to Portugal and same excellent experience. Thanks!!

Quality looker

As expected from Bell, a great quality product; the graphics are very cool and have drawn several admiring glances and comments already. I have opted to wear it with the peak fitted; the visor is a little large for my liking, but that is very much a personal opinion. Sunglasses are a little tight, but I am aware that this will improve as the helmet insert wears and moulds itself more to my head. Really good noise suppression for a half face helmet.

First Time Online Buy

I decided to buy a new helmet quickly. Never have bought one before online always in the shop. Excellent info re sizing and the helmet fitted perfectly. Great quality product for the price added to it arriving the next day as promised. All in all, a good experience and one I'd certainly use again.Also, got the benefit of some added extras, bag, peak & visor.

Bell Custom 500 Deluxe

Great retro looks. Quality finish. Very comfortable and sizing exactly right unlike other open face which can come up too small. Only requires a goggle retainer strap , (under £12 ) and you are good to go. The peak, visor are included and fit well. The bag is fantastic for protecting the helmet and looks , feels great.

I love Bell helmets, they always fit so well. The retro look of this helmet is great and the accessories mean you can have a different look from 1 helmet.
