Simpson manufacturers a variety of safety related gear and products including Helmets, fire suits, and parachutes. Safety is the primary goal of this brand, and it shows with their extensive ongoing testing of all the products that it delivers to market.
In January 2012, Simpson X-Bandit Pro Helmet received FIA Approval and the Distinction of Being the First U.S. Manufactured FIA 8860 Approved “Super Helmet.”
Don’t get confused (like I do 🙂 Simpson makes a popular model helmet called the Simpson Bandit, (the Street, Outlaw, and Super Bandits) while there is an entire brand of helmets in Germany called Bandit Helmets.
I like both and they do look similar in nature – especially when the brand stickers are removed for a little custom painting fun. But don’t think that a Bandit helmet is a Simpson, although a Simpson makes a Bandit. I know, right? Anyways, here are the Simpson Brand Helmets that you should have a look at.

Starting in 1959, these guys know a thing or two about safety. These helmets where built to withstand impact and last. With a little creativity, these helmets can also be transformed in works of art demonstrated by some very unique custom paint jobs.
