Five budget lids that garner five star ratings from SHARP
You don't need to spend £500 to guarantee the ultimate-level of helmet protection.
The UK government have introduced SHARP as their way of testing a helmet's safety rating and we've picked out five helmets that score five stars in the SHARP test.
SHARP Helmet testing evaluates the protection offered by a helmet by analysing the impact levels across its surface. According to SHARP they carry out their test 'on each model using seven individual helmets across a range of sizes – assessing how well each helmet could protect the brain in the event of a crash.'

I just bought the Caberg V2R three weeks ago.
I find peripheral vision top and sides is very good compared to my last helmet an RST RaceVent, a big bonus for me and worthy of purchase for this alone. The snap buckle Im unsure about and fumble a lot being used to D Rings, I might get used to it though. The anti mist visor works a treat but I still have to use Fogtech on my glasses. I find my chin a bit close to the front of the helmet and this causes the helmet to heat up a bit even with the vents open but I could take the bottom wind dam off to help. Its no quieter and the forehead part seems to get damp quicker than my earlier helmet. But I am happy with it so far.
