Amazon seem to be having a clear out on Motorbike Helmets. Loads of full face, open face and flip up ones. Not really my sort of thing, but seem to be much cheaper than anywhere else. There is generally only 1 each in stock and not sure if you will be able to order any more.

Prices seem to start from around £13 each.

Would sooner entrust my noggin to a 10 quid saucepan and some bubble wrap rather than that ****

I get the temptation for a cheap Helmet but surely if there is one thing that you dont buy cheap its the one thing that will keep you alive?

How bad can the AGV ones be?(serious question)

Id imagine they meet the British Standard BS 6658:1985 and carry the BSI Kitemark so you should have the minimum required protection but like others Id avoid them but I usually spend about £250 - £300 for mine.

The AGV will be good ( not really cheap. I know as i got all the cheap stuff and it's in my garage last month) the MDS will pass but the BSI standard is really subjective, depends if you like soup through a straw on a daily basis.

Can't fault the price. Personally I spend more on a helmet, but I like my comforts as much as safety.

Also, when buying clearance helmets, you have to question when the production date was as they will probably be old stock or maybe even ex display etc. Much better to go to a shop then buy online, but that's just me. Heat added anyway.

I was just interested in what you guys thought, wasn't considering buying one.

Amazon don't have a shop front so having ex display is going to be a tricky one to field. Production date is only relevant if you know what composite material exactly they used to manufacture the helmet. What you pay for a helmet is not really relevant.

Granted, Amazon don't have a shop, so unlikely to be ex display.

I was under the impression that all helmets had a used before date?

As for the price you pay, from my experience, I've had cheap helmets and I've had expensive. Generally, the higher spec (and expensive) helmets give a better fit, are quieter, more aerodynamic, have drop down visors etc, better designed as for venting etc. Regardless of this though, I suppose you could get a top spec helmet for less than a kid spec if you buy a bargain, so from that point of view, I'll agree with you.

It's recommended you replace your lid after 5 years, no one will say why they recommend that, I'd assume delamination via UV and other exposures but it is only recommendation. Helmet testing is destructive so it's catch 22.

Fit is paramount over venting and other jazzy stuff. I have an AVG GPtech that i can't see out of because it sits too low on my forehead and thats a large, my new agv is an xl and it's tight as it's racefit... the arai corsair i had sat too close on the chin bar (ML), the Shoei xspirit 2 fits me well and is large.The full carbon composite xlite with flush mount visor was noiseier than having a dyson hand dryer shoved in my helemt .. take that as you will. Admittedly they are all top end helmets but I've crashed enough to try a few of them out and I'll stick with the good stuff.

The best place to check out helmet ratings is here sharp.direct.gov.uk which is SHARP, the Safety Helmet Assessment and Rating Programme.

Also as its Amazon at least you can return it easily.
