hmm i guess its an ok price, but i'd rather go here:
http://www.winstanleysbikes.co.uk/product/15772/Giro_Monza_Helmet_2010
yes, they are 2010 model, and yes limited size and colour, but a £10 saving!
#3
There is only the Red / White 51 - 56cm one left at winstanleys unfortunately, but yeah its a good option if it will fit!

I recieved my 2011 Monza a couple of days ago, its very comfy and can be adjusted quite a bit to get the fit right. The biggest plus is that it lets a lot of air through, loads more than my old Met helmet let through. In fact it lets so much through that I finished a cycle without a sweaty head for the first time the other day :)
#4
yes, when i rodered they also had the M sie in white, which i bought!
nethertheless, this is still an ok deal!
#5
Good deal!
Always try the helmet before you buy, I tried a few and Giro weren't a good fit for the shape of my head but Specialized were spot on...
#6
What terrible timing for this deal...

Bad Joke, Horrible timing....

I find the Monza fits pretty well, the Roklok 5 adjustment at the back is pretty good for adjusting it to fit whatever shape noggin you have. However designaw is quite right, probably better trying one in the local bike shop first to make sure it fits comfortably, although that said it looks like myspokes.co.uk has a reasonable returns policy if it doesnt fit right.

Just wish the weather would get a bit better so I can get out and use mine a bit more :(

Since when has this site been called Hot Politically Correct UK Deals?! It's a deal that's all.
#10
Good deal. The Winstanley deal is better but for size small (51-56) only. I tried to order on line but couldn't get past the registration stage. However I will try ordering by phone. I cracked my previous helmet recently in a fall when the rider in front of me on a club ride, punctured on a steep descent and fell off right in front of me. I was certainly glad I was wearing a helmet.

This deal was posted before the accident peeps...

why is it bad timing? it's a deal on a bike helmet (like the other deal recently at Sainsburys).

it's just a fact of life that bad things do happen.

if someone died from a car accident, I would still expect people to post deals on car "deals".

now if they were making a joke of someone's death then that is a different matter ...

What?

So no petrol / diesel deals because people die in car accidents, from petrol-fuelled lawnmowers and fuel depot explosions.
No beer / wine / spirits deals because people die from alcohol and bottle fights and glass on the streets is really annoying.
No Jaffa cake deals because horses can die from Jaffa cakes.

Did you note the sarcasm in my post? In case you didn't, there may be a little bit in there somewhere.

Get a life.

How can a piece of plastic-coated styrofoam be a bargain at 45 quid? Worth wearing for safety, but 45 quid??
#15
Guess you don't cycle a lot? Budget helmets might protect your head, but they're often (but not always, before someone chimes in) not that comfortable and don't have very good airflow. I cycle a lot and having a nice cool head with a comfortably fitting helmet makes it worth the extra money.

I started off with a cheap Bell Yukon helmet, £15 and it wasn't very comfy and my head got incredibly sweaty, switching to one of these made a big difference.

Same as most things, you get what you pay for :)

I cycle 15+ miles a day, and my £5 Lidl cycle helmet is both comfortable and has good air flow. It had better be, because the evidence that cycle helmets do any good is pretty much nil and there is even evidence that they are counterproductive to safety.

If you believe that, what are you doing on this site?

I had a crash 2 weeks ago and would be in a very bad way if not dead if it weren't for my helmet.

DO NOT try to suggest to people that helmets are not important or effective. It's a nonsense perspective put about by idiots and could kill someone.
#20
Agree with the above fully and you really don't know what you are talking about if you think wearing a helmet is dangerous. Also this site is about saving money not just cheap products.

Computer says "not really".. a mile walking as a pedestrian seems to be more risky than a mile cycling. Nobody seems to be advocating helmets for pedestrians.

How can you possibly know that?

I am not an idiot. I am simply avoiding knee-jerk reactions which are not based on fact. Calm down, lay off the insults and educate yourself a little here: http://cyclehelmets.org/

By the way, did you not notice that I said that I do wear a helmet? I am not anti-helmet; I am just realistic rather than naive about them. What I am anti is compulsory helmet laws, because the many harms caused by the corresponding reduction in cycling would dwarf any benefit that the wearing of helmets could possibly bring.

I didn't say that so don't misquote me. I said there is evidence that they are counterproductive to safety. Rather than lazily accusing me of not knowing what I'm talking about, respond with facts.

If that was a reaction to my dismissal of "you get what you pay for" then let me explain. If you get what you pay for, then by definition if you pay less you get less, and therefore by definition there is no such thing as a bargain, or a "hotukdeal"...

A bargain can apply to a high priced item if its price is reduced enough, surely thats not hard to grasp?

Secondly, I would wear a helmet if it gave me only 1% additional protection over a bare head, if someone chooses not too, then thats their choice. You have shown one website which in my opion isn't particularly balanced. Have a look at this one:

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/o/cochrane/clsysrev/articles/CD001855/frame.html

Also, have you tried cycling with a more expensive helmet to see if it does make a difference to comfort or are you just stating your opinion that a £5 LIDL helmet is just as comfortable?

Sure - I never said it couldn't, though, so nothing to learn to grasp here - move on.
Secondly, I would wear a helmet if it gave me only 1% additional protection over a bare head, if someone chooses not too, then thats their choice.
Absolutely. I never told anyone not to wear helmets. However, neither not wearing a helmet nor explaining that their benefits are unproven/controversial/marginal/minuscule does not make me an idiot.
You have shown one website which in my opion isn't particularly balanced. Have a look at this one:

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/o/cochrane/clsysrev/articles/CD001855/frame.html
Great - so why in your opinion is that more fairly balanced?
Also, have you tried cycling with a more expensive helmet to see if it does make a difference to comfort or are you just stating your opinion that a £5 LIDL helmet is just as comfortable?
Where did I state that a £5 Lidl helmet is just as comfortable?

Seems to be a lot of misunderstanding and misquoting of my posts going on here.

Is that surprising? You say you wear a cheap helmet then state immediately that 'the evidence that cycle helmets do any good is pretty much nil and there is even evidence that they are counterproductive to safety.' So what are we to make of that? You only go on to explain what you mean later, so it's hardly surprising that some jump to conclusions.

And this site is called Hot UK Deals, which you state don't exist, so why do you visit?

That there are shades of grey to every debate, and I'm fending off facile arguments about being a bicycle helmet hater. I agree that I could have been a bit clearer though on that point, so sorry about that. What I was trying to say is that the interesting thing about wearing cycle helmets is that they don't just offer supposed benefits to safety: there are interesting arguments that helmet use can cause behaviour by the wearer, and those around them who could cause them harm, that is unsafe. Overall I believe that at least in my case it's just about worth wearing one. I could be wrong though - it really is that subtle.

Unfortunately, anything more subtle than a completely polarised argument does seem to be beyond a lot of people's comprehension.

You only go on to explain what you mean later, so it's hardly surprising that some jump to conclusions.
You agree about the misquoting then, and it's only the misunderstandings you are defending?

Erm, no! Looks like you're misquoting me too!
#29
Top quality helmet at a decent price. Hot.
#30
I wear a helmet for more than one reason. Reason number 2 is if some idiot knocks you off your bike and you sustain head injury, your legal claim will be reduced by up to 20%- and your family then gets a lot less money to look after you with and less loss of earnings etc.
#31
Can you provide a link to proof that this has actually happened in practice?
