Bike Helmet with led £9.99 @ Aldi

Found 5th May 2015
Yes, another deal with Aldi but for some reason these haven't been flagged on here yet. Plenty left in Cardiff Bay Aldi. Also tonnes of gloves, shorts and other cycling bits, some of which have already been mentioned on ukhotdeals. The shorts have a detachable padded section inside (perfect for commuting). The helmets come with rain visor (binned mine), and a very impressive removable led light at the back (3 flash settings). i bought both black/red and white/black. Can't decide which I prefer as look great so prob keep them both

not a deal they are this price. gave you a hot because I bought one

As above I brought one too, they are good quality x

Got me some gloves and a cycling jersey for the wife.. Got to say the helmets looked good quality.. heat from me..

seems that only the black one goes up to a size xxl all the others are 54-60cm

Go to a charity shop and ask them if they have any cycling helmets. most think they aren't allowed to sell them like childrens car seats or motorbike helmets in case they have been involved in an accident so give them away for free.

I bought that last summer in Germany. Quite good value product.

not sure about xxl but both of mine are 54-60. The pic shows 4 colours but they also sell white and black helmet which looks really nice. Had a similar helmet (without led) from Aldi 2 years ago and it's been perfect. Amazing for a tenner!!

Good helmet, but can make you light-headed ;-)

How do you know if it's been dropped or... a car seat you can see the state of it a helmet not always and for a tenner buy a new one.

these along with the lidl ones are ok but they never feel comfortable,mine constantly rubbed the back of my neck and my brothers just never fitted properly.ended up getting bell ones and theyre perfect

great!! cheers!!

Yup, nothing like getting a cheap, bargain helmet to protect that brain of yours when you bang your head youtube.com/wat…FgY

It has a good gadget on the back where you twist a disc to tighten the straps to get a good fit on the scone....

not voting but I wouldn't trust a £10 helmet with my brain.

No matter what - it is a better choice than not wearing one at all - heat from me

sadly, people think that expensive price and branding means best quality. it's sad but we need people like that in the world.

I would see it differently, only £10 to save the brains for those who don't wear one is a great deal.

well actually more expensive does usually correlate to better quality and I would rather pay more and buy a helmet from s trusted brand considering its purpose.

I.e. primark - you are telling me their clothes are better quality than some of the better known brands?

saying vauxhalls are better quality than BMW's?

Chinese unbranded phones better than HTC's?

Raleigh bikes are better than felt?

it is common sense, a higher price usually (not always of course but generally speaking) means better quality materials can be used in manufacturing and more time goes into testing and design = a better product

Sometimes you're paying extra because of company research into better fittting helmets and more comfortable helmets.

don't always think the price will be reflecting quality of materials

You can tell if a helmet is OK as it will have passed country specific testing. I trust the standards of UK, Australia, New Zealand and USA for example. So backed by a brand, bought from a reputable shop (don't want a dodgy supply chain to stick counterfeit goods in) and some recognised seal of tested approval I'm happy.

The A&E accident I had meant skidding down a hill at about 25mph on my face, thanks to a stupid driver who neither looked nor stopped. I had good lights and fluo clothing. I had a cheap crappy helmet that kept my face almost off the gravel, it was scrubbed out of the wound in hospital. I was helmet-gnostic before that. There will be 100 little head bumps in accidents for each major collision and a helmet will help protect you.

I think my current helmet cost £25.

If you use your bike once in a while a helmet that costs more than the bike is probably not needed.

BTW don't attach anything to your helmet unless you're insured and rich like Schumacher!

The price of helmet does not necessarily mean better quality. In most circumstances it is about air flow, comfort and weight. Not sure about this helmet as there is no information on the website, but its better to give advice like if it conforms to BSEN1078 or Snell Foundation B90 then you should be confident with it. Rather than more expensive means better quality.

This is not about quality per se, but about SAFETY.

If you want to use the car comparison, BMW is not necessarily safer than Vauxhall. Yes, probably it has fancier gadgets inside, a big engine and a sparklier paint, but this doesn't make it safer. Renault for example, made lots of cars which received 5 NCAP stars, and they are cheap.

Yes, buying counterfeit safety equipment is just wrong, but the one in Aldi or Lidl is not fake, it's just cheap. They are made according to the same standards, sometimes in the same factory as your trusted brand one.

The theory of higher price better quality, has nothing in common with the reality, but I will not waste my time trying to debate it.

Put up your stats that show that 'bargain helmets' that have passed the same rigorous UK safety standards as your named expensive ones are less safe, or SHUT UP!!

What a load of tosh! Clothes arent tested to pass safety standards. I have an 'expensive' GIRO helmet but I have bought one of these as a replacement for other reasons.

Heat from me - I bought one then compared it to the £8 offer muddyfox one at SD. ALDI was great quality.

Wow, bit shocked by the response and views on quality. It's a helmet being sold @ £10. Yes the quality of material is likely to be less than that of a Bell/Giro £100+ helmet but as many people have mentioned it's a very high quality helmet for the price and more to the point it will have gone through near the enough the same practice of testing as the high end helmets do. The strap mechanism works perfectly and the rear light is a huge bonus. Plus it comes with a 3 year guarantee. Unless there's sufficient evidence that these helmets have not gone through the appropriate testing, then just pipe down and appreciate a good deal :-)

haha advertisers dream u are.

a helmet has to meet standards set and they are very high standards so unless the extra 3 vents are gonna change your life a £10 helmet is just as good.

Those cheese and garlic dough balls looks good.

Even so, why be tight? lol

Hot deal

I just picked one of these up from Monks Cross (York) and they were marked down to £5.09! very pleased with it. they had a few left on Friday night...

A while later and they're no longer on sale but...

I bought one of these for my commute to work this year - the rear light seemed like a great addition to a helmet for that reason.

Second time cycling home from work I was side-swiped by a car and went over it's bonnet landing clearly on my head and shoulder at 20ish MPH

Helmet cracked (for the bin), but I'm fine with minor bruising on my head.

So, field tested, worked a treat, Aldi saved my life

Got it reduced for 6.99.

got one tonight in the knightswood branch £2.99 still had 3 or 4 left.
