1st Class Rider

The Highway Code says…. In order to make yourself more conspicuous “you could wear a light or brightly coloured helmet”. Take your pick! At 1st Class we believe that a brightly coloured helmet is more visible on the road than many of the Hi Viz jackets currently in use. In a line of traffic it is the riders head, being the highest point, that would become visible first. Particularly important if your bike has a fairing or screen fitted or the rider is obscured by a top box or rucksack for example, as these features can obscure your hi viz jacket. So the choice of helmet colour can be your best and most visible asset. If you want to get ahead… Get a hat… And a “light or brightly coloured” one at that.
