From memory you have to order by phone or email after picking your helmet type, colour, visor style colour etc

They're based in Cornwall, there's nothing more I can say

Send a message via Skype™ to benc
I bought mine through Andre on the forum, not sure if he still sells them, might be worth dropping him a PM

We normally do them and you can order online, we are also happy to export to the US and make sure there is no UK duty. However we are in the middle of moving premises so could not do anything for a few weeks.

When I ordered over the phone they were very helpful. Worth giving a call.

This may be about to be the most insulting / patronising post of all time (in which case I appologise, but I've found a number of US customers aren't used to calling internationally).

Their phone number is +44 (0) 1288 355988

To call them from the US you will need to dial 011 44 1288 355 988

I couldn't have come up with that if I tried.

Interesting number, in the USA that number would be 1288 FKKYUU

He does have a good point.

Geckos' website seems to be dreadful.

No pricing information, no options information, very little detail.

I thought about replacing my Mk9 with a new one, but I have now given up trying.

One would imagine they might sell a few more helmets if they made browsing easier.

Usually the sign of a company that's sooo busy that it neglects it's online presence.

Mistake

They are predominantly a manufacturer, they are hugely successful and their web site is actually quite smart and fairly informative IMHO.
