Am I the only one who thought this was a mouse?
Why is a bike helmet worth £199? What does it do that a £30 can't? Not being a dick..... genuine question

If it's about safety - nothing. But a more expensive helmet will be made from lighter/ more comfortable material. Laser comes with aeroshell and has the roller opening and closure and other features you wouldn't get on a standard helmet.

Main thing is the safety standard conformity then you add on ££ for style, comfort and weight features.

Must say I love lazer helmets - quite literally saved my life according to Drs at the Royal London.
Ordered, thanks op

I'm the lesser spotted thrifty cyclist.

I'm happy to spend money, but not waste it.

Some of the newer helmets have what's called MIPS, which is about improved safety..

The big thing for the money is weight. Some cheaper helmets can feel like you're wearing a motorbike helmet! When you are out riding for 4 hours + sometimes, this can really take it's toll on your neck.

The other is the vents. Obviously any helmet can have lots of vents, but it's about increasing airflow, whilst keeping the impact protection the same.

Another factor is aerodynamics. The more expensive the helmet, generally the more aerodynamic it is. If you're racing, or out in a headwind for 2 out of a 4h ride, you notice this.


Specifically with this helmet, it has a few bells and whistles that others don't.
It's compatible with the Lazer Aeroshell, which makes it more aero by covering the vents. As a nice byproduct, it also makes it better for wet weather.
It has a small light that can fit in the dial in the back for extra visibility
It is compatible with the Magneto glasses, which mean you can clip magnetic glasses onto the strap, rather than having the arms(?) sit over your ears. This is a luxury, but very nice.



I had the Lazer genesis before this, which I bought for £80, and really liked it, but it wasn't as well vented as I needed (I sweat a lot in the heat), so got a Catlike Mixino.

I would never pay £200 for a helmet, but for this price, and considering my helmet is up for replacement, it's a great deal.

(Sorry about the long post, but I was having the same conversation with someone yesterday, so it's fresh on the mind).
Ordered OP. Thanks a lot!

I used a code and got 10% off, as I didn't realise there was a 12% code.

I also used Quidco, which tracked this morning

Thanks for the reply....that's a lot to take in Yeah agree £200 is a lot for a helmet....but £80 for one, if it makes that much difference is quite acceptable I guess
