Good price for the lid. I've never agreed with buying helmets online however unless you've tried it on in a shop. Please make sure you buy a helmet that fits you well guys! I can't see any terms about returning helmets but I'd hope they didn't allow it, or at least only sold the helmet on as a returned item. Try to find somewhere selling the same lid for you to try it on before buying just in case!

DO NOT BUY - 1 Star which is the lowest level of protection

Probably a joke but really, you do have a lot of chance surviving :D. Look at the motogp, coming off at over 100MPH and getting back on your bike straight after... just depends on the protection most times.

I dont know whether to trust cheap/budget lids or not yet, im happy with my arai rx-7... expensive but worth it IMO as its better safe than sorry :).

Cracking lid for a cracking price, go for it.

Dont buy polycarbonate helmets! Spend a bit more and get a decent one!

helmet is one thing that you should spend a bit of cash on, afterall it is designed to hopefully keep you alive after a spill.. dont buy cheap, do research and get a decent lid...

Seems to get a poor rating for side impact protection. Better hope you land face first or back of the head first...

Ive got a £400 Aria and a £350 Shoei but if i only had £40 to spend on a lid id rather have an HJC than the kind of crap you see going for £40 day in day out.

Lets hope that quote worked.

If been hit by 2 careless drivers over the last 3 years and I walked away from it. Admittedly to my bed where i spent a few days......Resting. But I think people assume that motorbikes simply explode when they hit things. The worst injuries ive ever had were on a mountain bike.

Oh yeah, the lid. Its a good find but as quite alot of us have pointed out. If you ride alot then you are better off going to a shop and buying a high quality helmet Arai, Agv, Shoei that actually fits your head. Otherwise it wont operate as designed.


As I pointed out you can get a 5 star helmet for under £100. This one is 1 star because if your head gets a blow from the side it offers poor protection.

Great Helmet if a bargain is more important than your skull, eyes and brain

I Have a Shark and AGV helmet, then I purchased this http://www.ghostbikes.com/products/1533-arashi-phantom-shadow-motorcycle-helmet.html as a spare which I saw on this site and apart from it not looking as good as my other helmets its just as comfortable and solid, also has a good sharp rating.

Just watch out guys, the Sharp rating has been criticized for not replicating real crash conditions. Admittedly it's better than no test but watch out for lids which are trying to pass a test rather than the situation

Not got many vents though - think of our tropical summers. Joking aside, I bought an XLite on recommendation and it fits like a dream, is lite (the clue is in the name), but the vents are absolutely rubbish. For cool airflow, my previous HJC was sooo much better - it had more vents than this. Fit, protection, comfort and I would say venting are paramount. If your sweat gets in your eyes, then you're gonna crash, so spend a little money on protecting the most important asset you have (besides yer plums of course!)

First time I've ever agreed with mccririck I think! I paid under £80 for mine and it's a great fit too. Price and brand names are a very poor guide to helmet safety - but go ahead and pay £300+ if you think your mates will be impressed.

lol you change your view how many times?

Basically.. if you wanna buy a £40 helmet.. your life is worth £40.
Buy the best helmet you can afford... simple.

Our local bike shop had a sale on AGV helmets, and had 25% off if you traded any old helmet in.. good quality helmet as a discounted price... done.

What about this for use as a track day helmet (for cars not bikes!), wouldn't something like this be OK?

yes but Ben Spiers has the HJC R-PHA 10 which is a £300 helmet not quite same

In terms of people slagging this in regards to quality, yes, of course it's not going to be as good as a Aria/AGV/Shoei but this would be sufficent for go karting, quad biking etc and if you've only got £40 to spend on a helmet this will be the best you can get.

So stop being so pretentious, not every person can afford £400 helmets.

This site really does my head in with rich folk thinking they're better than people.

And before anyone starts I've got an Arai Quantum so I do "rate my life".

Honestly...

Clearly you didn't read my posts. Or just chose to ignore them.

But remember as well as safety it's important to consider noise, fit, and ventilation too.
