I already use these. I find it comfortable and the flip down sun-visor comes in handy. Is up to the European standard and has the kite mark.
I have a £300 Shoei helmet but actually prefer this one... although the Shoei has better noise reduction... in fact the noise is what let's these down, but fine for city riding.

Any flip front is going to be noisy.

My head is worth more than £40 though

Exactly how much is your head worth then?

I HATE these comments... whilst it is fairly reasonable to assume a 400 quid helmet is going to provide more protection that a 40 quid one, it's not a guarantee... and it will also depend on how the helmet is stuck when you need it...

Personally, my head is priceless, but seeing as I cannot gurantee it's protection when riding a motorbike, I take sensible precautions.
Addin heat, as it's a decent price, but persoanlly I would pay more, but thenm I do ride a fair few miles a year.

Just what I need!!! after a bird damage my older one...X)

Weighs a tonne! 1680 g for a helmet is far too heavy to be comfortable for long journeys.

To save everybody typing the usual "cheap crap, blah blah blah" here is a link to the previous thread on cheap supermarket helmets http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/motorcycle-helmet-29-99-aldi/885124/?page=3#post10730516

Best way to stop your brains getting spilled on the road is never putting any sort of powered machine between your legs. You lot must be crazy!!
#8
Spend a bit more on a good one
Look in best buys form Ride or MCN ,
This is not something to save money on

If your head was worth that much to you, you'd be in a car

Looks very similar to my caberg one which also comes in matt black. Theyre heavier than normal due to the flip mechanism etc.

Not bad at all for £40 as it looks unbranded (no markings?)

Also not worth getting into the "how much is you head worth debate". I agree that it has to be safe to be legally sold.

Note that is says saftey buckle - does that mean its not the simple seat belt type clip fastening? If so thats abit of a downer....

Same sort of thread on the aldi one on here somewhere....only there helmet is the full face type, same price through.......iv got enough helmets to last me ages to be honest....dont like full face , this flip style is ok....my other half as the one a bit like this one, in silver made by carsberg.....Lucky for us we got a new one at a top price ....about the same as this one.....So we got a Hot deal....this is ok if you cant get a branded one in this style at this price......

As long as a helmet has the relevent safety standard marks, price is unimportant, its how well they fit your head, is what matters!

Looks like a good deal. Might be good for the local moped-muppets that stand around chatting to their mates wearing their lids like a hat balanced on top of their heads.

I am really not sure where this practice comes from: You wouldn't catch me wearing my Shoei like that - it's got too far to fall if it slips and I don't like wearing lids that have already bounced six foot in their life! Even hooking a lid on your handlebars is bad news as it can fall off. The best bet is to lay your gloves on the ground and sit you lid on them, that way it's got nowhere to fall!

or do as I do, hook the mirror through the visor opening :)

You hate comments like this? It is a cheap helmet with no sharp rating. Wouldn't go near my head. Simples.

Good grief this Isnt a cheap helmet that Isnt going to work, by law they have to pass eu standards.

This is a good helmet that lidl are selling cheap.

Hot
There's passing EU standards, and there is protecting your head...

Nicely ignoring the point I was making...
The point you make here is good and fine. If you want to avoid it due to lack of (as you see it) reviews and testing then fair enough, but to blithely say 'my head is worth more than £40' is the bit I was 'hating'... Throw away, pointless comment, as I don't think you can physically buy a helmet that fairly matches the value that anyone would reasonably put on their head, all you can do it judge where the trade off lays, FOR YOU.
#19
Ok I'll rephrase. No £40 helmet would get 5* sharp rating.
#20
of all the type of helmets scrimp on, a flip-up is the worst. do some research about the results of chin impacts using this type of helmet, then buy a quality item.
#21
I might have to eat my words a little, had a close look at one of these in LIDL today and thought that the manufacture was very good, given the price and considerably better than another well known branded flip front helmet which is very popular. That said, there must be a reason why the police use the Shoei or Arai.
#22
flip ups look gash.

also not even a good deal, you can get a name brand for the same price (given it might be Box or Takai).
