MOTORRAD conclusion on the Bayard FP-25 S

Be careful with the size information, the Bayard is very large. And it’s pleasantly comfortable, but very loud.

The relatively inexpensive helmet plays happily in the upper test field and offers a surprising amount for the money. In terms of equipment and aeroacoustics, however, you notice the tight calculation. The price-performance ratio is still very good, a good choice as an entry-level or second helmet.

MOTORRAD verdict: good
