It`s usually not available, but you can find it on the Simpson headset pages on Amazon UK. Please click on the link to access the Simpson headset pages on Amazon UK. The coolest, meanest and coolest retro helmets can be found on our coolest helmet pages. It`s a simple ratchet visor, and you won`t find a fancy spring load or anything else you`ll find on other high-end helmets. If you`re a little older now and not as bad, you`ll be happy to know that this new Simpson Venom is completely street legal! It complies with the regulations of ECE 22-05 and is approved for racing according to ACU Gold standards. Ok, the tiny opening of the bandit`s visor may have been replaced with something similar, but this one is actually large enough to look out and have good peripheral vision. Nevertheless, this helmet still looks pretty nasty. However, if you are outside the DOT area of the United States, we recommend purchasing the Simpson Venom. It is a more powerful helmet and, unlike the outlaw, legal for the road in Europe. So, if you`re looking for a great ventilation helmet, you should probably walk away from the outlaw and check out our best ventilation helmet sites. I think the bottom line for many buyers is that it stays in place and offers wind/dirt/rain protection like most other full-face helmets.

The outlaw weighs about 1.55 kg (3.4 lbs), which is okay, but far from what we`d call one of the lightest helmets. However, we haven`t found any owners complaining about the weight, and some have said it feels nice and light when you wear it. Simpson has also expanded this eye connection wider than before to provide excellent peripheral vision – and that will always be a good thing for safety on the road. The same goes for the fact that the visor is also optically correct, which means a distortion-free view forward – and it`s coated with a super-coated anti-fog treatment. It seems that Texas-based Simpson has always made helmets — but they didn`t start making car helmets until the late `70s before switching to motorcycle helmets later. And yes, they all look the same, with that hyper-aggressive Predator style on the face that`s great for nudes, muscle bikes, and cruisers. Well, the first headset you should definitely try is the Simpson Venom (called Ghost Bandit in the US). Although outlaw is not legal for road traffic in Europe, Venom certified by the EEC is legal.
It also looks a lot like the outlaw, but it has a few head openings and a folding sun visor. It has been rated SHARP 4 stars in Europe, so it is worth a look. All this means that it offers you excellent protection on the road. Simpson has been making helmets for a long time and it`s a name that many people trust to protect them. Simpson Bandit, the original bad boy of the 1970s, was developed for NASCAR racing and was never approved for motorcycle use. That didn`t stop people from buying and using them, although it probably helped cement Simpson`s hooligan image. The helmet itself consists of a high-strength multi-axis tricomposite compound (MAXX-3C). It is available in three hull sizes; XS-M/L-XL and XXL. The Venom is available in glossy white, glossy black or matte black and costs £299.99. They are available in all good bike shops via Oxford Products. It`s also not a Pinlock anti-fog. And while it`s locked, it`s an old pin lock, meaning it snaps into place when you close the visor, but you have to rip it off to open it.
If you want to be up to date with a super cool modern style helmet, how about the French Shark Spartan. It`s lightweight – especially if you buy the carbon version – comes with a Pinlock anti-fog and has all the bells and whistles you`d expect from a modern helmet. If you`re used to riding with an open helmet, you`ll probably find that the Outlaw Bandit is the last word on silent driving. But it`s more than that. OK, it`s fundamental compared to much of the competition – but this homecoming is as attractive as it is a disadvantage. Plus, he has this review of Snell telling you he`ll do the trick if things get distorted. It`s a decent interior and the vast majority of pilots/owners say it`s an extremely comfortable helmet. A little practicality is always welcome. But let`s face it, you`re watching a Simpson because it looks so cool and aggressive.
You buy one because you only need to have one. Speaking of visors, the Venom comes with a built-in dark sun visor (obviously, you`re not strong enough to use a dark visor with it). The outer visor has an ultra-wide viewing angle, is equipped with a pike prepared by MaxVision and controlled anti-fog ventilation. But it is this Snell M2015 review that shows that The Simpson Outlaw is not only a mean and capricious face, but also a serious protection. A few owners said it was a bit complicated to use, and it was expected that its visor would remain open to nothing more than cruising speeds. But stick to visiting the city and stay away from the highways and everything should be fine. Oh, and always wear earplugs to keep your hearing in good condition. It`s also easy to remove because Simpson uses Velcro fasteners to avoid playing with poppers and rivets like most manufacturers. And that`s your lot – outside the sights. These include lots of smoke and hues, an iridium and amber. Here is a 2m long video showing the matte black outlaw from Get Lowered Cycles. While there aren`t vents in the main headset — which are usually one of the main culprits when it comes to letting noise into headphones — most outlaw owners seem to think it`s a really noisy headset.
