Motorcycle Helmet Takes Show by Storm

A STRANRAER-made motorcycle helmet has taken the Motorcycle Show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham by storm.

Helmet Integrated Systems Ltd were involved in their biggest-ever launch of a helmet - the Vector - and could have sold £50,000 worth from their stand.

And there are hopes that when the new helmet hits the streets in January it will lead to more work at the Commerce Road factory.

This week, Barry Vincent, Business Manager in the Motorcycle and Motorsport Division of the company told the "Free Press

" The objective is the growth of the company which will in turn lead to growth of the workforce".

Using technology developed for helmets worn by military pilots, the company, Britain's only motorbike helmet manufacturers, have spent two years on the new product which is made of tri-composite materials, glass fibre, kevlar and carbon fibre.

And it exceeds by a margin all the new Pan European safety standards, which allows sales throughout the Common Market and European Free Trade Area.
