FAKE SHOEI HELMETS DETECTED

Leading Italian consumer bike magazine Motociclismo couldn’t believe recent advertising for Shoei GT-Air helmets sold online in Italy for just 89€ (£79), so it bought one to check.

The offending lid turned out to be a gesturally convincing Chinese-made fake, obviously lacking genuine homologation. Subsequent lab tests revealed it was seriously deficient in both construction and materials, and pronounced dangerous.

Anybody in the UK trade offered similar suspiciously cheap Shoei stock from sources other than official distributor Feridax would be wise to contact Trading Standards immediately.
