I *think* this was already posted but is expired for some reason?

no stock for yellow large size : (
No reason to believe a £25 helmet is any better than a £10 one (the recent Aldi ones even have a built in LED) and the 'warmer' is worth £3 max. Discount off an inflated RRP doesn't necessarily make a 'deal' and cyclists seem to be mugs for vastly overpriced kit (as regularly shown up by Aldi and Lidl).

Not in terms of pure safety standards, maybe, but there is a difference in comfort and features. Two of my kids have Aldi/Lidl ones and they are good with the light built in etc, but only worn the occasional weekend. I would find the fit, especially the straps, uncomfortable on my daily commute after a while and the build doesn't seem as durable as my own. I can't comment on this particular model, but I'm tempted by the Hi-vis one, which is another difference from the Aldi /Lidl ones.

Well reasoned argument but as our heads are all different some will probably find the 'cheap' ones more comfortable than this one. The fact remains that bike kit is some of the most overpriced stuff out there - largely because the lycra brigade are wedded to brand names.

I don't think that is true at all. It is the same as anything, you can get expensive stuff or you can get cheap stuff and anything in between.

If you want to spend loads - get rapha
if you don't but want good quality try the sales or DHB stuff on wiggle is pretty reasonably priced.
if quality isn't your biggest concern you can easily kit yourself out very cheaply at aldi/lidl or sports direct.

Really? As a paid up member of the "lycra brigade" who rides with a club I reckon I see as much Aldi kit as I do top end and 90% of us have some DHB gear or buy in the sales. It's only the BMW types among us who appear wedded to "top end" names.

Also no reason to believe a £10 helmet will be as safe as a £25 helmet either.
Standards define a minimum, not a maximum or that all should be identically the same performance.

I think for bike helmets its all about trying them on assuming you can find places to do that.

I am sure the high tech polyester material used for bike clothing is well worth it, in much the same way as original printer inks...mind you even bike clothing looks like a bargain next to inks..
£3.50 postage unless you spend over £50.

No pop-up for me so comes in at £31.

Same is true of motorbike helmets but they do get tested (see SHARPs tests). This blows the myth that the more you pay the safer they are, eg my £99 helmet got max 5 stars whereas at least one 'designer brand' £400 helmet got 2 stars. Overall there's little correlation between price and safety performance, it's all down to marketing and what name your hero gets paid to wear (and it won't be the same helmet anyway as it'll be custom made.

I'm not knocking branded/expensive stuff completely but just ensure that you really are getting good value for money, not just something to impress the impressionable. Back to this deal, at least it's not one of the really silly-priced helmets but I'd still challenge anyone to come up with proof that it's any better than that £9.99 Aldi one. That's before we even get into the argument about whether bike helmets are useful anyway: I for one do always wear one, plus lots of high viz and use some decent lights. Ah, lights, now there's another area where cyclists will pay through the nose where there is absolutely no need.

I agree there's little to no correlation between price and performance. But there might be some in some instances. Hard to tell. But I believe there are german standards for cycle helmet safety, that are more stringent than the ones we use here. So a helmet might pass the german ones, but not the ones here. Something to look out for, I forget the code for it. Probably googleable.

Personally I'm happy to potentially waste £10-20 in getting something slightly more likely to be better performing, since it involves my safety. As for just about everything else bike related, yes they are ridiculously overpriced.

German DIN standard perhaps? Given Aldi and Lidl are German and many of their other products are certified to DIN standards I think there's a good chance the helmets are too (I'll check on mine). We seem to be broadly agreeing and I'd happily pay £100 more if I thought I really was getting a significantly safer helmet but, again, what little evidence exists doesn't seem to indicate that.
Got one of these off the other deal posted. Nice helmet.
Was dubious about the helmet warmer but have already used on a couple of chilly mornings and can recommend.

I think there in lies the problem. Lack of evidence. The cycling nuts will convince themselves. Heard stuff like special welding on an expensive rigid frame makes the bike so much more "comfortable".
Do you have to replace a helmet after a crash?

I highsided at quite a speed and went head first into a tree....was flying for long enough to remember thinking, this is going to hurt. Next thing I remember I am 20ft from the tree down the hill.

Anyway there is no visible damage to the outside but a little chunk is missing from the foam inside. Though I may have damaged it when packing my pads.

Any way to know?

Regards to this....I would not be comfortable putting my trust in a £10 helmet...or thinking about it a helmet I had a bad crash in...lol.

Is the potential for risking brain injury worth a £20 helmet?
I think the general advice is, probably to be safe than sorry, to replace it.

It's a really nice catlike leaf @ £60.....agreed though!

Think I'd be missing a few words without it.
also good to keep under your helmet warm
