Where is the biggest motorbike Helmet shop?

Hi
Looking to buy new [motorbike] helmet,
I feel like going to a big shop which has really wide range.
Any recommendation?
Around Basel or around Zurich is good, as there is nothing near me anyway [Luzern]

Thank you
Gil

If you are around Luzern, visit Legends [1] and have a word with Billy. He is the importer of Reevu Helmets [2]. I don't ride, but they do look interesting.

Or if that does not work, check out Silverstone Park [3] on the No.2 bus route at Fluhmühle.

I got mine here, they had a pretty decent selection for Switzerland.

So I opened up the Legends website and was greeted by this:

Possibly Gay Biker?

Is this supposed to be some swiss incarnation of the Blue Oyster bar?

Seriously though, I've been thinking about the Reevu helmet, or something that gives me a quick view of the asshat tailgating me on a straight. Has anyone here tried them? Are they actually as useful as I hope they are?

Ninja edit:

There is a fairly big biker shop in Horgen (and other places): http://www.polo-motorrad.ch/

What do you mean gay? There is a picture of a dozen topless women on the wall behind the two studs. Or maybe that's for the ladies?

PS, I was going to actually reply with a serious answer to the OP but Sbrinz beat me to it.

Hi Gil, I Live in Luzern and Import and Distribute Motorbike helmets for the Reevu company from England, our helmets are the only helmet in the world with a rear view syatem ...no blind spots ! there are loads of helmet dealers in the Country and range from 50 chf to 2000 chf....what type of riding do you plan to do and what is your price range, I would only be to happy to help you find the right helmet for your needs

Regards

Bill Weir

This is the shop in Sbrinz link above. I wouldn't say it has a huge range. But they have some nice things.

Yes, thank you Mia I had forgotten the name of the shop.
The OP would ride along the road & you could think maybe the OP would see a shop selling motor cycle gear?

They have lots of stuff! Plus the Euro is now 20 % cheaper AND you can claim back 19% sales tax....

Thank you, I copied and pasted, as the OP is looking for a big selection. Unfortunately it was a vertical list, but you are welcome to edit it if you wish, I won't mind at all.

Alas, they don't carry my preferred helmet brand (Airoh).
