Giro Havoc helmet - was £49.99, now £20 @ Halfords

Found 23rd Jan 2010Made hot 23rd Jan 2010
This is a cracking deal - a Giro Havoc helmet for £20 from Halfords. I've just got back from picking mine up and it's amazing quality. Normally for a £20 bike helmet you get an unknown brand's basic model. Here you can get a top model from a top make.

It's still £49.99 in store, so make sure you reserve it online and you'll pay £20 in store. On site, it just says that they have the small model available, but when I went in, I asked if I could have a medium and that wasn't a problem at all.

So only £19.10!!

Thank you, I've been looking for a descent looking helmet for ages, you never know what will happen these days with crazy nurses and foreign bus drivers -perfect for two problems

Fancy a different colour & free delivery @ £19.99. Only have Red & Black, Small & Lilac, Small. No cashback but still cheap after reduction. Try ]Evans Cycles.

If you really have to buy from Halfords then ]TopCashBack is offering 5% for Reserve & Collect but at least the likely chance you don't have to turn up & been told no stock. This is not guaranteed.

Yes, good for those with a small head, counts me out:x

Great deal! Theres also a nice looking white/silver Giro Stylus road helmet (this deal is for a MTB helmet if this makes any difference to you) for £20 ]here (large size)

BTW if the stock check shows its out of stock for your nearest store you can still go through the checkout and it should give you the option of getting one delivered to the store free of charge for pick-up.

How?!?!? only the small is in the sale according to website, medium is still £49.99 :thinking:

Was looking at these last month when I got my Banshee. They look great. Just ordered mine - hopefully can get a medium or large - I have a big head. I like to think it means I have a big brain. Or maybe I have an extra thick skull and don't need a crash helmet...

Dunno. The title on the website says small but the description says medium.

TBH I didn't realise the size, I reserved it & when I collected the guy gave me a medium, I asked could I change the size if it didn't fit, he said no problem but medium should fit me fine. It does!

Yeah likewise. When I went, although I ordered small, I had a choice of small, medium or large - the guy didn't care which one I got - I think that the description on the website of small is for all sizes.

Thanks for that, may just order anyway and see what happens then :thumbsup:

Hot, shame its a small

Thanks for OP. Just ordered Helmet. Now I need Bike lock , Pump and Bike LED lights for my new bike if anyone knows which ones are best please let me know. Many thanks in advance.

I went to my local Halfords with the print out from my Internet reservation, showing small size helmet. I asked the guy behind the counter if I could get a medium for this price and he looked on his computer and said yes, that the price on his screen was £20 for all sizes. He added that I got a real bargain. The price on the shelf was still showing £49.99 but I paid £20 at the check-out. Thanks for the post, Ryan, great find.

I must add that these are a very good helmet espescialy at that price. Naturally the more your spend you get more vents and lighter materials but I wear one of these riding to work every day and don't find it anywhere near too heavy or too hot.

Very small price to put on your safety, even at the RRP. :thumbsup:

Reserved, tanks.

Good helmet same price at Evans Cycles

Superb price

I would get one as a spare for myself, shame Giro helmets don't seem to fit my head very well.

Nice find, ordered and will collect tomorrow. At last i can replace my crappy Lidl helmet !

reserved 2 hopefully they will let me have 1 large 1 for my big head

So can anyone give a recommendation between the Giro Havoc and the Giro Stylus. Officially one is mtb and the other road but I can't see much difference apart from the visor on the Havoc?

OK, opening myself up for abuse here, but, this looks very much like (as they all probably do) the one I saw in Sainsburys this morning 1/2 price at £6.99, if that fits isn't that good enough?

I alread own a Giro transfer model helmet.
Is it worth getting this as well?
Anyone know how long the offer is on for?

Thanks.

Well you could get a cheap one, but on your head be it.

Haha. Nice. :-D

Just been to collect one from my local Halfords. Chatted to the guy at the counter, saying I may have reserved the wrong size, but it turned out to be the right size as they'd put a medium behind the counter for me and not a small. Thank goodness for hapless employees, since it saved me a discussion over trying to get a different size. The fella did comment on how much more they were for sale in the store than online.

Cheers OP!

just collected 2 i had resevred they let me swap one for a large size.thanks for tip

I just had exactly the same experience, reserved a small online and a medium was waiting for me instore.

heat added!

Just fetched two and they are medium size on offer,cheers.

Got a medium here but could have had any size I wanted!

Thanks!!!

Nice one! Just picked up mine. Reserved a small on the website but they were happy for me to have a large one.

Just picked up a white/silver Giro Stylus and I'm impressed with the quality and the comfort, terrific value for £20 :thumbsup:

I can also confirm medium is on offer too!
I just went into the Christchurch store, price on the shelf was £50. I had booked a small size online. I just said to the guy, 'I booked it online, but they only had the small size on there, could I have a medium instead?' He just said 'yeah sure, do you want to try it first?'

Good deal!! Heat added.

My reserved one in Southampton turned out to be a medium which is just what I wanted - as I tried on a medium one first that was on the "£50.00 shelf" Result!

Bought one at this price last week, I know it's a great helmet as I had the previous gloss black version. I prefer the sliding locking device on the older model though, but it's not a big deal as you just lock it on & go.
Has a decent amount of ventilation compared to cheaper models & like all Giro helmets is very well made. A definite bargain!

i dont know if i dropped lucky on this but i went in to halfords in Leigh near wigan and got this same helmet for £3.00 no box so im assuming x-display but just the job for some road ride as i do alot of down hill riding but after xmas need to shed a few pounds lol
