A good helmet is worth it's weight in gold, if it wasn't for Giro I'd be a goner by now, went through 2 Giro E2's in the space of a year, with careless drivers not looking for where cyclists are, one older lady didn't see me, turned left into a road and t-boned me running me and my bike over, 2nd one met a similar fate, riding up a road next to a hospital, some lady decided to open her car door without looking, bang I go into the door, fly over the door and end up in the road having landed on my head.

Giro is the only name in cycle helmets, and anyone that tells you otherwise is nuts (unless you want a full face, in which case TLD carbon are the way to go)

and one last point, as soon as you drop a helmet, it gets a crack, take a chunk of polystyrene out of it, etc you need to replace it! a damaged helmet is not worth the risk.

Oh and one very last point, if you are a parent, never let your child out on a bike without a helmet, I know they are not cool and they get hot and itchy, but it's a small price to pay, not only a few months ago a mate of mine was in hospital with a broken collarbone and collapsed lung due to falling off his bike, helmet saved his head though...

get ahead, get a helmet....

Whilst I agree with what what you say above, I also wouldn't go out without a helmet. I would recommend people go to a bike shop and find a helmet that fits correctly then if so come home and order off the net.

As for the Giro statement above thats just plain silly, do you own an apple computer too! Getting one that fits correctly if far more important than the make. Yes the top teams on the tours do wear Giro because they are sponsored to do so. But there are plenty of good ones out there.

Loving the cyclesafe message!
Totally with you on this - I'd never go out on my bike without one. The thought of coming off at 45 mph and not having a helmet is scary. I dont mind breaking the rest of my body, it can take a lot more damage and heal properly - The head unfortunately cannot :-(

Anyone proud enough to ride w/o a helmet deserves what they get!
Excellent deal btw - HOT

Had some bad experiences with the winstanleys bmx department and from what I've heard a lot of others have to. Things like sending out the wrong items or assuring you the order is on the way when in reality it isn't. I'm not sure if the same will apply with their main bike shop but generally best to avoid them if you can.

Delivery to Northern Ireland is £15!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! when will this end????? Royal Mail and Parcel forceis the same for the whole UK!!! Order cancelled

Bicycle helmets are rated to provide protection that is often experienced in falls below 12mph.

Really? They actually deserve 'something' for making a choice?

Anyway, helmet is the right price - voted hot.

1) You need to get a new speedo.
2) Read what dodgyd said.

There seem to be rather a lot of notions from the realms of fantasy in this thread. How exactly is this phenominally expensive helmet significantly better than a £5 job from Lidl?

Without checking the design specs to see if both met CE and Schnell standards I don't know but assuming they both do....

If you just cycle 100metres to the shops buy from Lidl.

If you go out cycling on a road bike then the venting, weight, fit adjustment all make this a great buy if the helmet fits you properly.

Also if you reguarly go on a roadbike you won't think it is a stupid comment to say going at 45mph requires a new speedo. Probably best to find out about your subject brfore quoting fantasy in future!
#16
How is the "venting", "weight", "fit" or "adjustment" any better than a cheap helmet?

As it's been pointed out that a helmet doesn't do you any good at even moderate speeds, as an undoubted expert on such things, why did you feel you have to tell the world that you do 45 miles per hour?

boo email from them saying "we have tried to order this from the suppliers, however we have been informed that it is now discontinued." Balls
wonder if companies do this just to get the mailing/customer list numbers up?
#18
Just buy the 2011 model. You know it's soooo much better...
#19
Got a "discontinued" message, followed by a "is there anything else you would want instead". Just went with the refund.

Couldn't agree more - until someone explains otherwise I'll continue to believe it's just a fashion/brand thing. It's always instructive to look at how motorcycle helmets perform in tests: there's no correlation between price/brand and performance - some of the best ones are under £100 whereas £300+ helmets show mediocre results.

When i first read that, I instantly thought of swimming trunks :-)

As kevmacarthur has already pointed out speeds like that arent fantasy I'm afraid, which is why i'd always where a helmet even if they arent designed to manage that kind of impact - i'd rather have some protection than none.

If you're not serious about cycling, then this is not the deal for you. Most of the effort required to cycle at high speed is used to overcome wind resistance. Thus the more aerodynamic a helmet is the better, which is why I would spend more on a helmet like this.

Hmmm - we're straying dangerously close to £100 HDMI lead territory. Somehow this is subtly better - but only the connoisseurs can detect that of course. The riff-raff can stick to their mass-market goods and the sense of superiority of the elite will be maintained. No figures to back this up of course - apart from the price and the badge.
