The new £89.95 .5 helmet from THE

Starting with the T2, the company’s top-of-the-line full-face lid gets a makeover for next year. Most noticeably is the reduced silhouette, it’s now a little smaller overall, plus there’s 17 vents to suck in cooling air and a colour-matched visor. A durable Cordura nylon helmet bag included. The T2 is available with either a composite (£159) or hand-laid carbon fibre shell (£229), depending on how deep your pockets are.

Next up is the new .5. This lid draws on the company’s years of experience to offer a helmet with the style and performance found in THE’s high-end helmets but at a fraction of the price. It’s made from an injection-molded ABS shell, with 15 vents, D-ring closure and a washable liner as. It’s available in four colours. It costs £89.95.
