Apologies for the crap posting, it’s the first time I’ve posted from a tablet.
the sizing runs small, not the helmets... I'll leave you to work that one out :D
Ffs, you couldn't make this up. I'll leave you to buy a smaller sized helmet than you need to fit a larger size head from a range that runs small. I don't think it's the size of Shark helmets that's the problem here.
Not my fault you're hard of thinking.
No. Contradictory nonsense.
No, I never said smaller than label size, I said sizing runs small. The opposite, wasn't the fact I suggested he try on an XL shark a clue? ;)
Not loving the colour scheme (presumably the reason for the discount) but cracking price.
I bet, you like your helmet better.
C4 is a huge improvement on the C3 Pro, I imagine there's a world of difference between C4 and C2.
I owned a C and a C2 and they were great but I bought a Laser 9 months ago and the build quality is better.
My Mrs likes my helmet
My lid arrived today - just registered it for the five year guarantee which I didn't know about. Bargain ☺
I had a C3 Pro and now have a C4. IMHO anyone who can afford the difference should definitely get the C4, it's a complete redesign and a huge upgrade. The visor is bigger, the problem with the seal at the top of the visor is gone, the integrated Sena intercom system is really nifty, and there's a long list of other improvements. This is a better deal: hotukdeals.com ... schuberth-c4-pulse-white-39999-helmet-city-2868454
These are stunningly good helmets
Good price reduction but it's only SHARP rated 3 stars
Excellent price for good lid.
i was thinking to buy a cheap bike for 400 or 500.... But this helmet. ... hmmm
PLENTY ON EBAY FOR LESS
I thought helmet city was what they called Edinburgh?
Visor's are easily swappable between shoei helmets, so if they are, probably wont be a problem unless they go for a new fitting mechanism, which I don't believe they have in the 10+ years I've had mine.
Thanks op, I've got my cbt next monday and I'm starting to look for gear for after. I never knew there were this many bikers on here.
The Gloss Black version seems to be available for £249.99.[img]http://www.helmetcity.co.uk/cart.php?suggest=54c693a631bde[/img]
Looks like they've sold out. I tried to order one online and they "don't have sufficient quantity to fulfil order". I'll try again in the morning. Infinity are out of stock company wide but would not match this price even if they had stock. I wasn't quick enough but at least I have the black one.
Safety is the reason for fluorescent yellow. for me it hopefully means I would never hear the words my nephew hear " I'm sorry I didn't see you" I've got a brand new unworn Matt Black version of this helmet which I'd be happy to sell for the £226 it cost me.
you would pay £300 to look like a giant lollipop
nice price horrible colour still hot for price
because you have an aftermarket exhaust or your bike is just loud? I was more on about the wind noise, shoei go on about their new air intake system and in my experience as they were the only helmets i bought, they've simply gone cheaper in order to compete with all the new manufacturers out there now. Im a believer that a helmet should fit, your cheeks should push up and there should be minimal to no twist movement!, Too many nowadays think oh thats snug when it's clearly not pressing on their face, the shoei's were great, but even with a correct fitment, the air noise was unbearable for me.
Quiet lid or not, I always wear my earplugs. Better to be safe than sorry 10 or 15 years down the line when your hearing has gone to pot.
Makes me want to buy another bike! Aw f*** it, I;ll just walk around with the helmet and pretend:D
I think this was covered previously; https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/schuberth-c3-motorcycle-helmet-270-lidsdirect-1035528 ;)
Schuberth don't do too well in SHARP tests though. 3* for this one: http://sharp.direct.gov.uk/testsratings/schuberth-c3
Think again, is your head really worth £310 ?? :p
You can buy a car for £300.
Superb price, try one on to see if it fits though.
whoa.... that took some time to finally see that £240 saving on retail price aint half bad.. :-))))))
price, ok. but value.....thats subjective on this stuff
You seem to be missing the whole point of HUKD - is it the best price/value?
seems pretty much all bike gear related posts end in a "you'll die first", "no, you will" debate. The choice at the end of the day is "do you like this helmet", "does it fit", "is it suitable for your pocket, head, self worth".....if the answers are YEP...get it in your basket!
Misuse of statistics! FAR fewer bike riders. For a whole collection of reasons, mile for mile you are 11 times as likely to be killed on a bike than in a car! As a biker (and driver) I don't like the statistics but they are reality. Back to the deal - get yourself a SAFE helmet (see SHARPS, etc) - don't pay way over the odds for a fashion statement. £100 will get you something decent if you take your time to choose properly. This helmet gets 4 stars: http://sharp.direct.gov.uk/testhelmetlist?sharp-make=99&sharp-model=RX-7+GP&sharp-type=All&sharp-rating=1&discontinued=1 And here's a 5 star helmet for £90: http://sharp.direct.gov.uk/testsratings/caberg-v2-407 Pay more if you wish but don't claim it makes you safer!
5 star SHARPS rating too (though you can get 5 stars at an even lower price point).
