Simpson Darksome Carbon

The first legal flip-front Simpson motorcycle helmet is arriving March 2019 , introducing the Simpson Darksome.

Simpson Darksome Carbon

The Simpson Darksome is ECE22.05 approved and uses many Simpson styling cues, but has been shaped to reduce noise and improve aerodynamics.  The shell comes in two sizes and is made of Maxx-3C tricomposite (a carbon/kevlar/fibreglass compound) or there is a full carbon option.  Inside there is a wide-channelled EPS liner for improved ventilation.  The visor features a wide angle of view and comes with a Pinlock Max Vision anti-fog insert, plus there is a tinted drop-down sun visor.

The £349 Simpson Darksome comes in Black, Matt Black, White or Gunmetal for an SRP of £349 and the Carbon version £499.


A solid mechanism locks the chinbar in place, closed or open, the visor can be removed removing the tool-free plates which cover the mechanisms.  The shell features Maxx-3C tri-composite technology and a lighter full carbon version is available.

The EPS hosts the wide channels of the VKS venting system, which provides the right airflow at any adjustment.

The enlarged field of view provides a limit-less vertical and peripheral vison.  Pinlock Max Vision lenses are included in the box and the drop-down sun visor covers the whole of the field of view.
