April showers bring May flowers, but with those colorful plant protrusions also comes the return of great motorcycle riding weather for many of us across the world. With winter gone and spring rapidly metamorphosing into the early days of summer’s warmth comes a chance to saddle up and hit the road — an idea that sounds particularly enticing this year, what with social distancing and stay-at-home orders having forced most of us to spend much of the spring inside and away from others.
Of course, with riding season comes a chance for new riding gear — and as you likely know, no piece of motorcycle equipment is more important than your helmet. As a general rule of thumb, most experts recommend replacing your helmet every five years or so even if you don’t wind up using it for its intended protective purpose (and obviously, you should replace it immediately if it does wind up saving your noggin). Besides, you’ve been good this year; why not treat yourself to a cool new look?
Especially since you don’t have to spend a lot to do it. Right now, you can grab any of the great helmets below for at least 50 percent off their usual list price at RevZilla, which means the barrier to entry is lower than usual. And with solid lids marked down as low as $80, hell, you could even grab one as a spare.
