Just in time for the post Tour de France and Olympic cycling resurgence....

Seems an excellent price for a good helmet. I've had one for a few years and found it well made and comfortable to wear. Has good padding and the "dial fit" fastening to give a tight fit. Only the Royal Blue seems to be this price, the others colours are £4 dearer and unless you're particularly fussy re colour ....

Might not suit everyone as it's good to try the fit, but I think the helmet is great.

At Amazon it gets 5/5 from 4 reviews so I'm not alone in liking it!

As spotted by chillbill it's also on ebay via NP Autoparts for the same price.

been looking for a helmet for a while and this is a great price for a highly rated helmet, cheers OP

I have no idea about sizing, would be the equivalent of a Large? I have a pretty big head...

Original Poster

It is up to 62cm, that is pretty large, this is more of an XL. Fits my big head anyway!

Try looking here for a sizing guide.

Bought 2 of these for £20 delivered 3 months ago. Good quality helmets at a great price. Had a problem with the online order and called them up and the customer service was fantastic. Would highly recommend.

Thanks OP. Sweet deal. Heat added. Now I can return the crappy Argos one I bought last week, as this clearly looks to be better quality.

Don't forget 10% TCB! (_;)

Hey OP,

Good find indeed, have some heat. Ordered.

Cheers

10% quidco shows as "NP Autoparts"

Thanks I got one, I have been keeping an eye for a good helmet to show up

Basic helmet at an ok price.

Perfect! 10% Quidco back too. Heat added. 55 - 62cm is quite large but my current lid is this size too - adult large

but will still protect your head

Yep, better than no helmet, i cycle 50 miles a week and see plenty of non helmet cyclists, which imo is crazy.

Ordered, thanks OP, although have a look around before buying, don't do what I did and get excited by the price and just order, there are plenty of others for only a few quid dearer.

I've been after a helmet for a week or so and have seen nicer, but will give this a look first for this price, well worth a punt.

Good spot. I did look on ebay but as they hadn't used "Mirage" in the title I missed it. They have 785 left there so plenty of stock. I'll update the original post to state this.

same here . also the idiots riding with headphone in

When I cycle without a helmet I feel so vulnerable. It's amazing that some people don't even think about wearing one. Like Wiggo said, they should be made compulsory.

My son fell off his bike once when he was very young. The loud noise we heard as his helmet hit the the tarmac was sickening when you imagine that could've been his skull.

"In Your Opinion" being the key phrase, because that's exactly what it is; your opinion.
A helmet is a personal choice, there are already enough nanny rules in this country without idiots voluntarily putting others up for suggestion.

Agreed, I can understand the need for a helmet, and I advocate the wearing of helmets in appropriate situations.
What I do not understand is why people feel the need to force unnecessary rules and regulations on others based on knee-jerk reactions.

There should be a law on that [ironic]in my opinion[/ironic].

Totally agree.

Exactly.

Helmets can help prevent serious injury in a very specific situation, that's not really open to debate, it's self-explanatory and obvious.
Does that mean that everything that can help prevent injury in certain situations should be made compulsory, just in case?

If that is indeed the case, then these people who advocate such things will no doubt be more than willing to get behind campaigns to make pedestrians wear helmets when out walking as well, given that the number of pedestrians admitted to hospital with serious head injuries (many thousands) far exceeds the number of cyclists admitted (a few hundred).

I think that, as far as statistics go, that is the best one out there that should make people who think helmets should be compulsory actually examine what they are saying, and realise how stupid it is. If helmet use is so essential to save lives that it simply has to be made compulsory, then they will no doubt be more than happy to be forced by the Government to wear safety equipment when just stepping out their front door to walk down to the shops.

And as far as comments detailing how people feel "vulnerable" without helmets on, good grief, do these people think they are not vulnerable with them on? Head injuries make up a tiny fraction of injuries that occurs to cyclists as a whole, and the biggest cause of cyclist injuries out there is not due to lack of helmets, nor is it due to car drivers, it's quite simply cyclist stupidity (caveat of imo applies of course). Here in Newark, it's quite a cyclist friendly town, and there are huge numbers of cyclists around, but 9 out of every 10 I see appear to be just oblivious to how vulnerable they actually are. Junctions? Red lights? Pedestrians crossings? lights at night-time? none of that applies to them of course, they're all safe wrapped up in their little cotton wool helmets. Out walking the dogs several times a night, you take your life in your hands just walking across the pedestrian crossings nearby, because there are so many retarded invulnerable cyclists heading full speed through the red light and across the junction. It's quite simply staggering how many cyclists do not realise their own behaviour is putting themselves at risk, and think that anything bad that happens is always the car drivers fault. There was a big accident of note recently in a town on my commute; a cyclist was involved in collision with a car and I believe the car driver was prosecuted. The cyclist went straight through a red light, whilst talking on his mobile. Was it the cyclists fault? oh no, of course not.

fwiw (probably nothing to people without the mental capacity to understand why we should not force knee-jerk nanny laws on to people), I'm a Mountain Biker (Peaks, Cannock, Dalby, etc - always wear a helmet), and a road bike commuter (50+ miles per week, always wear a helmet). I've had one notable accident of recall, and that was to my ribs. Maybe rib-protecters should be made compulsory?...

What a strange thing to say. The comment about wearing headphones / earphones is a valid one because it is idiotic to deliberately inhibit a sense, which is beneficial to safety and awareness, when cycling.

Yes it is my opinion, if it was a nanny state I may not be able to voice it so grow up. I would encourage everyone to wear a bike helmet. I ensure my children ride with a helmet, yes that is my choice or am i now being over protective as a parent ?
Which ever way you see it being on the road on a bike has it's perils, so having a basic level of head protection and your wits about you surely is a must

If you would like to pull me up on any of the points that I've actually made, rather than ones that you just think I've made, I'd be more than happy to debate them. But (at the risk of not 'growing up') given that you clearly haven't actually bothered to read anything that I wrote and are just assuming that I am against helmets, I can't actually see anything there worth replying to oO

I do love your use of the word 'choice' though, particularly ironic given that the nature of my post was directly concerning the removal of it...

My choice to enforce ...... is that clearer ? We also wear seat belts when in the car, sometimes stationary but definitely when moving!
I understand your point that you believe it should be up to an individual if they so wish to wear a helmet so understand my point that I think a person who chooses not to wear a helmet is 'crazy' and if it was made law what would be the result ... probably a lot of moaning but probably more cyclists surviving collisions.

good find, heat added

Of course the person I pity is whoever else is involved in the accident that kills you. Because even if you would have survived if you weren't so concerned about your precious hairdo, they now have to live with that their entire life.

Received today, great helmet, thanks op

Got mine today, impressed.
Very handy having the wheel adjusted that lets you tighten or loosen the fit when you have it on.

Your opinion, is just that, your opinion, it is worth no more or no less.
Thankfully we do not live in a dictatorship.
So you will not have the choice to remove other peoples right to choose.

As long as they are prepared to not use the "nanny" NHS for treatment for any injury that could have been lessened if they had worn a helmet. We need compulsory safety laws as long as other taxpayers are made to pick up the bill for people who don't want to wear a helmet. Anything that saves lives has to be a good thing. It's no longer a personal choice if you expect others to pick up the bill to pay for a lifetime of treatment for your brain injury.
