Lazer Blade road cycling helmet £30 @ Cycle Republic (extra £10 off if spending over £50)

Found 4th Apr
great price for a really great helmet. Won loads of awards.

The Blade shares a lot of tech and design from the top of the range pro level Z1 and at the normal price of £45-50ish found elsewhere is a steal. At £30 delivered its amazing!

Another bonus is that if you are a new customer and register an account you get £10 off your first order if you spend over £50. I grabbed myself a set of clipless pedals (R540's) and got them both for £43 delivered.

Shame it's medium only. Need a small for my tiny bonce.

Nice find. I like Cycle Republic, they fixed a wheel which another bike shop said was not worth fixing (it was a carbon fared alloy rim) for a very good price and vastly less than replacement.

I didn't know they were part of Halfords Group til the other day but I don't think that's an issue.

I purchased a helmet from WIlkinsons for £10?

Was I wise to do so, feels fine for me?

Let us know once you've crash tested this one - what evidence do you have that it's any better?

Depends what you mean by better, as that was not a point I was making, purely a jokey comment, as I'm happy with my Aldi one, thanks (even had built in light). As long as they meet the safety standards, but having had branded ones, the fit, comfort and breathability tend not be as good on the cheap ones ( some may also prefer looks and brand, but that doesn't bother me).

Unfortunately you get at least one joker on every thread about bicycle helmets implying that safety is somehow related to price. Even putting aside the huge question as to whether bicycle helmets have any benefit at all (and I do wear one), this encourages a misconception in people who have no idea about these things that somehow they must pay ridiculous amounts for them.

If the light in the Aldi one is the same as that in the Lidl one, it is extremely annoying as it takes CR2025 lithium cells. I don't know of any rechargeable alternative.

Yes you too can have the new improved hyperbole. Make sure you buy the road version for riding on the road and the mountain bike version for riding up those mountains, it makes all the difference. Remember the £100 helmet is bound to be ten times better than the £10 helmet. Don’t take any notice of the fact that they all have to conform to the same safety standards.

There are some differences worth paying for: the fit, comfort and lightness whilst meeting those same standards were way better on my Specialized helmet compared to the perfectly reasonable Aldi one. Waiting for a good deal again (was £21 on here few years back) and with cycling daily to work, I think it is worth it, as the Aldi one's straps are fraying and the plastic peeling off a bit - but cheaper ones work, especially for infrequent recreation.

BTW, I did vote hot on this deal, OP, but wouldn't have all black myself.
