OK guys, need your input on the best site on the web to purchase a helmet.

Let me know your sites.

www.newenough.com Some of the best prices on helmets that I've found (and awesome closeout deals for last year's models)...and great customer service! In fact, if you think you are interested in anything on their site, pm me your email address and I'll send you a 10% off your purchase coupon that I just received!

Thanks for the links and offer (Boiler 97) but I had my eye on the Nolan N103 which I tried along with others out in Europe last week (I was thinking of bringing back a Caberg or other Europeen brands, but none fit my huge head)

Not that I want to start a thread on helmets good and bad. But if any know of a website or dealer that has a good price on Nolan, let me know

Thanks

If you want great free info regarding helmet ratings, check out webbikeworld. Excellent, objective information but they do not sell helmets.

Best place in the US is http://www.compacc.com/ Competition Accessories.

I got my N102 there, no tax or shipping-US$216.00.

They are offering N103's for US$299.99 no tax or shipping in US, not sure how they handle Canadian stuff.

BTW, my N102 is the best helmet I've had by far, just love it.

I got a really great deal from New Enough
on a Rubicon Red Icon full face helmet for
$56. This is the third winter I've used it.
(I wear a modular spring and fall and
a 3/4 in sizzling hottt summer)
Watch the closeout sales...

helmet deals

There are some excellent deals here in the uk at the moment on a massive range of helmets, But i dont know if shipping would kill the deal,,

I bought two helmets from www.performancemoto.com and the price was right and service good. Their ebay storefront is Rider Superstore.

try the link, www.visordown.com
and link to sharp motocycle helmet results makes intresting reading,
most of the expensive helmets fail to get high safety results....
