MoreBikes have tested the Duchinni D405 helmet and their verdict is;
“The D405 offers superb value for money, with far more features than its price tag should allow. Combined with very nice styling, and just a £10 premium if you go for one of the XRR graphic versions, budget conscious riders would be well advised to check it out.”

Peter Hickman rewrote the record books at this year’s Isle of Man TT Races, setting the fastest ever practice lap by a newcomer, with an average speed of 115mph around the 37 3/4 mile Mountain Course.
However, it was in the prestigious Senior race at the end of the week that Hicky, who has been supported by Weise clothing for many years, made his mark, recording an average speed of 129mph on the final lap and bringing his Ice Valley Motorsave BMW S1000RR home in 11th place, earning himself a place in the record books and a silver replica. What makes this achievement all the more remarkable is that Peter was riding a superstock machine, rather than the faster full-specification superbikes.
Incredibly, this year is Hicky’s first season of road racing, which he took up when he found himself without a ride in British Superbikes. At the NW200 International races in May he received the award for best newcomer, because he was the highest placed newcomer in all four races.
