What Our Customers Say About Our Snell Helmets

“What an excellent value helmet. Definitely very pleased with my purchase. Comfy and looks good. Can’t wait to get some new visors and hopefully get some artwork on it.”

“I was looking for a decent Karting helmet as opposed to a motorcycle and this was the cheapest on the market I could find. I am definitely not disappointed. It is well worth the price tag, excellent quality and once I customised, looks great on track. I have also put the dark smoke visor on and it looks even better.”

“Looks the dogs on the track, the quality is bang on and goes great with my prism red visor. Great quality and good price, was not left disappointed!”

“I wear a Zamp 44 CE for my British Touring Car Campaign, I couldn’t recommend the helmet highly enough. The cooling vents, fit and style is fantastic. I would highly recommend trying Zamp Helmets.”

“Currently wear the RZ 44CE, size guide is spot on and fits like a dream. It’s so light that I have to remind myself that I’m wearing one. The carbon weave looks amazing and the construction of the helmet on a whole is flawless. Well worth the investment.”
