oh dear here we go again

YES this is a cheap helmet

BUT it's been awarded a 4* sharp safety rating

its naive to think that an expensive helmet is going to protect you better than this one. Remember big brands spend thousands on commercial deals with racers, have big budgets for advertising and this often is the reason why they charge you more

Please don’t buy this basketball helmet, protect your head with better one...

Check the weight. Cheaper helmets tend to be heavier.

It's polycarbonate. I read that they are not as safe as composite ones as the shell can shatter on impact whereas a composite shell will deform then return to more like the original shape which with keep your skull roughly head shaped (probably a good thing) if you break it (probably a bad thing). That info was obtained a number of years ago, admittedly, so might no longer be true...but makes sense to me. You don't have to spend a fortune to make the jump to a composite helmet. Fibreglass ones are not that expensive...it's when you get into carbon fibre, kevlar, big brands etc that it starts to ramp up. The gains are mainly less weight, less wind noise, more cool.
That's my take anyway...hope someone finds it useful.

Others will be just as safe, however, they may not be as heavy, more comfortable or have more features than the cheaper helmet.

1.45kg not that heavy my Lazer kestrel carbon is only 200g lighter 1.25kg, good price op. Great for anyone starting off.

It's cheap and it performs well in the tests. The proof is in the wearing it however. It might be uncomfortable, the interior might fall to bits. I've every expectation that the visor will be thin, easily fogged and easily scratched.

In saying all of that at £24.99 you could buy a new one every 4 months.

It's riders choice.

On the subject of sharp tests - these tests are performed at the equivant of 19mph. So this helmet should be fine for a low speed collision (not that you want to find out). If you ride on faster roads you may want to spend a bit more hoping that a manufacturer that's involved in racing or bike sport also builds their helmets to survive in a tougher environment. That high speed off may see your helmet sliding on tarmac or concrete at high speed for quite a distance and the sharp test only covers impact and not abrasion.

My advice is if you ride regularly on dual carriageway etc you want a multicomposite shell designed to resist impact and abrasion.

I saw by own eyes, when young boy lost his balance on the scouter, hit the kerb, lot of blood inside the visors, pronounced dead next 15 minutes... chip helmet didn’t crack- head inside did...

I have only ever had open face, never ever road legal (pudding basin for well over 20 then 70s style 4 years ago) and occasionally, and I mean once every 5 years, wish I had a full face. This is one I would consider.

Ride magazine carries out regular tests on impact, sharp, twist and abrasion and very often its the 'budget' helmets that get the ride 'recommended' and mid priced ones that get 'best buy'. There's no correlation between price and level of protection. For some perspective the latest trend for cruiser helmets is German style tin lids (virtually zero protection but legal) and some US states still don't have any helmet laws at all...

Indeed there may be no correlation between price and impact resistance or ability tonperdomr well in a relatively low speed test environment, but they don't test the actual quality of the helmet - how well it's made, how comfortable it is, how long the trim will stay attached etc etc.

You may have to wear your helmet for long stretches and one of the biggest distractions on a bike can be an uncomfortable helmet - be that poor fit or noise or whatever.

More expensive helmets aren't always safer. But better build quality and sometimes quieter. The fit is way more important.

Yes they do test for those things

"how well it's made, how comfortable it is, how long the trim will stay attached etc etc."

Who do? Sharp? No, they don't. They simulate a fall from a bike and the resulting impact against a hard object up to speeds of c.19mph and the ability of a flip front helmet to stay closed when encountering such an impact. If you think 5 sharp stars on a £25 helmet means it's going to be built with the same quality of finish as say a mid range 3 star AGV, Suomy or Bell you'll be sadly - and very quickly - disappointed.


This:
"
SHARP IMPACT TESTS

Each model of motorcycle helmet undergoes 30 linear and 2 oblique impact tests in order to achieve a SHARP rating. To complete these 32 tests, a minimum of 7 individual helmet samples, in a range of sizes, are subjected impacts at three speeds (6, 7.5 and 8.5 metres per second) as follows...table of tests etc here

Not sharp. Sharp is a safety rating we all know that.
If you backtrack the comments, someone said that ride magazine often gives awards to mid range helmets.
You replied to him saying that they dont test for comfort, quality, etc.
I replied to you saying yes, they do.

Fair enough. That's my poor earlier post as I was only referring to sharp tests. I wouldn't have thought that any magazine would do much more than test the cosmetics and rely on the like of sharp for the scientific side of things, but I might be wrong.

In saying that, I don't see anyone at a magazine wearing a £26 helmet every day for 6 months in all weathers and road types in order to give a decent assessment of how it's lasted.

Good point. I bet they just walk around the office for a few minutes lol.

My first ever helmet was a cheap LS2 I think it was 30quid and it had 4 stars sharp rating. It lasted well. But then they made an updated version of the same helmet which only got 1 star. I think it was a 351 or 352 or something.

My fav helmet was the LS2 arrow. For the price it was really good quality and comparable to a much more expensive helmet. I think they just released a non carbon fibre version too.

I had to retire that helmet though due to a BMW driver..... so now I'm looking for a good new helmet. But I can't find anything that compares to the arrow.

It had a locking visor, and really wide field of view, despite being more of a racing helmet.

So if you can suggest anything like that for me to check out I'd appreciate the help
