Black Optimus Flip Front

Name: Michael Machin From: East Sussex Riding for: Four years

Price paid for it: £59.99 in May 2014 from Ghostbikes


What type of riding do you do:  Social,domestic and pleasure on a 2014 Honda CB500F.

Tell us about it: The helmet follows the same philosophy as all the other products in the ‘black’ range: quality at a very affordable price.

This is the first helmet I’ve owned that is a flip front, and it’s sturdy yet light and is very easily opened with a thumb, which proves very useful whilst riding in slow moving traffic in town when it’s hot. The helmet has extended neck padding and a chin curtain which aids comfort and reduces noise.


Give us three good points: Quality; Price; Comfort

And three bad ones: Not a pinlock ready visor
