Few helmets have made such a mark on the bike world as the Simpson Bandit. First launched in the late 1970s, the original Bandit was made in Texas by Bill Simpson and was actually a NASCAR helmet design that was technically illegal in Britain. It was a super-high quality lid, but since it was built for American car racing, it didn't comply with UK motorcycle helmet rules.
Now riders can re-create their biking youth, with the latest Simpson bike helmet - the new Venom which is totally compliant with ECE 22-05 regulations, making them fully road legal to wear on a bike. That hasn't affected their overall design though - the Simpson style is still clear to see.
Simpson has also updated the materials and build quality for 2021. The standard Venom boasts the very latest composite Maxx-3C shell material, with fully removable, washable lining, an advanced venting and hot-air exhaust system, inner sun visor, and a quick-release Pinlock Max Vision equipped visor. A Max vision insert is included in the box.
