Gear REVIEW – Halley Helmet Stand
I don’t know about you, but I treat my motorcycle helmet like a newborn. I spent a small fortune purchasing it and consider it to be my most precious item of riding gear. So leaving it sitting on the kitchen bench or on top of my dusty wardrobe never felt quite right. Thankfully I now have an alternative. This helmet stand by Halley Accessories provides both a safe storage place and a way of putting my prized possession on display where I can enjoy it.
The Halley helmet stand takes a simple idea and turns it into something beautiful. When its constructed it has the appearance of a piece of contemporary art. The stand boasts an ultra-modern design that features satin black and brushed stainless steel finishes. Constructed from only 4 parts it takes mere seconds to set up. Then once built it will stay put on any level surface thanks to a non-slip rubber pad on its base. The base itself is laser cut from thick steel to prevent it from being easily knocked over and is finished in a hardwearing powder coat. The standout feature of the stand, however, is the brushed stainless steel ball perched at the top. The ball acts as the main support for your motorcycle helmet and catches light and reflections from its surroundings.
As simple as the stand appears Halley have paid special attention to how it functions. The idea behind the large ball is that it prevents pressure points that can damage the foam core or soft lining of your motorcycle helmet. The design also does away with any edges or points that could scratch paint or a visor. Cleverly Halley has scaled the stainless ball so that it fits all sizes of helmets too.
Along with the helmet stand, Halley offers a wall mounted solution so you can keep your helmet up where little hands can’t reach it. Both solutions work with either full face or open face motorcycle helmets and are available now via their website.
