whats the cm size of helmet op pls, i cant get a bike helmet for my hubby.
#4
Haven't seen this deal in mine... :(

Fabulous helmet. I would also like to know the dimensions if anyone has them. I believe the helmet would fit a normal adult skull but my wife has quite an abnormal forehead which often makes head garments difficult for her to wear.

I assume these helmets are ok - although not sure I would protect my skull with a £5 helmet... :|

There should be a law against wearing anything that makes you look as stupid as a cycle hat, not just the aesthetic aspect but also because the wearer has swallowed the supposed "reasons" for wearing them.

They offer virtually no protection and were developed as a fashion accessory only after professional cyclists used similar items to lower wind resistance so they could go faster.

I knew someone who died wearing one of these and many people who tell me they feel safer when wearing one. Feeling "safer" when on a bicycle is not a good thing and is no substitute for having your wits about you.

Maybe people should wear helmets for crossing the road?

Biggest load of uneducated tripe I have ever read.

Yes of course a helmet isn't going to save you life if you pedal into the path of an 18 wheeler, but it certainly helps with the stupid accidents (that are often worse than one would expected). I have been thrown over the bars many a time when speeding round some fantastic single track far too fast and have been glad I had the helmet (although the don't stop the bike landing on top of me which my helmet would offer me some protection from!) and its the low speed offs that tend to cause more damage.

On the road, IMO the helmet is principally there as a safety device to reduce (not negate) the effect of an accident caused by other numpty drivers or pedestrians walking out infront of you.

Before you make wild claims about the helmet offering no protection perhaps you should ring up HeadWay and ask to speak to some of the riders who regret not wearing a helmet and are living with their subsequent disability. ( http://www.headway.org.uk/ )

Helmets are a wise choice, but will not stop the stupid putting their own life and others at risk as a result of their poor cycling. The Darwin awards exist for precisely such a group of people.

£10 in ASDA Toryglen, Glasgow.
#11
My Asda must be $hit(Blackburn)..cause I never see any decent bargains at all in my store.
#12
Not available in park royal.
#13
It says 58-62 on the web site but I ripped the tags off n binned them so I can't confirm.
I think it goes smaller than that tho cos my wife has a tiny pin head and it fits hers. Mines like a basketball and it fits that too.
I did ask to measure the wifes head but she declined.

It's a good deal, not got a helmet but for £5 could be a wise investment. heat added.

Oh dear, the anecdotal evidence again.

I bet you know someone who survived a car crash because he didn't wear a seatbelt, too.

Most UK deaths occur within a few hours of drinking water or eating bread. Bread and water must be dangerous on those levels of assumption.

To be sold in the European Union a helmet must have passed EN 1078 which specifies certain energy absorption criteria (as a function of acceleration) must be met for a series of impact types including flat and kerb types.
For those seeking a higher level of protection, look for one which also meets CPSC, which is the American standard which is a little more stringent than EN1078, but will push the price up.

Considering theres not a fat lot of give in tarmac, high acceleration forces within the skull aren't hard to attain.

If you value your head (you're only going to get the one), stick some certified energy absorbing polystyrene around it when you're exposed to the dangers of traffic and travelling at speed.
If you don't, it's your call, but don't waste your time berating a deal that makes such protection accessible to all.

My only reservation with this deal is that Asda staff don't have a clue about helping you get it fitted correctly - too many people end up wearing them on the back of their head when it should be on the top!
