I did put that on but whoever has put the deal on has changed it
Got a load of stuff from Aldi today 9.99 helmet with rear light - fantastic value. Similar featured helmet will cost 10x the value. Also picked up a small bike computer for £4.99, I got a garmin but the cadence sensor has died so this is perfect as replacement.

Plus fingerless gloves. Really nice bargains.

Yeah I saw a lot of great deals in there. Someone has already listed them all on another thread but didn't elaborate on the Muc-Off stuff. Plus since this is a good deal on a well established brand in the cycling industry, I thought it deserved a post of its own

I was turned off of the helmet by posts in the other group about “not skimping on safety”. I’m a novice so really unsure if I should have just bought it or not now.

Any helmet is better than no helmet. And all helmets sold should pass quality tests so can't see why the price should matter too much.

The helmet is absolutely fine. The foam looks pretty robust but crushable the overall strap design is a lot more than I expect. The ends of the straps are held down via buckles which are threaded through the helmets super structure.

Most of helmets don’t have this design as they are held down with clip in plastic gourmets moulded into the foam material. Overall it is a good quality helmet.

The helmet rides higher than the usual road helmets which are skull tight. But I believe this is standard fitment for off road or mountain biking helmet.

I have been riding for over 10yrs and have used a few helmets. And had spent £100 on a catlike helmet (my last one). Most of that money had gone into how it looks and the brand as opposed to safety features. I wasn’t overall impressed by the tightening mech either as it can wiggle loose. But I like the look of it as the most of the peleton rode with it.

However with that said it did save my head as I fell off after an encounter with a massive pot hole. The helmet literally cracked in half and the only thing I suffered was a bruised ego. I went head down into the ground travelling at 15mph, skidded for a decent 10-15m on my head before i stopped.

The plastic cover is actually moulded into the foam. Many branded helmet don’t have this. The plastic harnesses are also moulded into the form.

Below is what a specialised helmet looks like. The mould in plastic clips holds the plastic harnesses. But they are easily pulled out etc.

I am not a brand monkey but whilst they meet the British standards ( so do all helmets or they couldn't be sold its a low bar) I'd be wary, my friends son crashed at low speed and split a Aldi ski helmet. I am not saying buy a POC but I dont think I would trust an Aldi helmet, their cycle gear is low quality ( both cycle tool and pump i bought broke within a few uses). Planetx helmets are marginally more expensive and well reviewed.

On the muck off, that is a complete brand rip off, Fenwicks do a concentrated wash that is far more cost effective.
Hi yeah, what size bottle is the dry lube?

All helmets are meant to split or take damages. If you had a serious crash and the helmet isn’t damaged in some ways that means your skull and head is taking the stress.

The specialised helmet I had in the photo had cracked frame at the tip of the helmet from a gentle kiss with a wall. It is designed to break apart these things. That’s how they protect you during a crash.

Helmets are more like consumables. Much like air bags. Once it has served its purpose it really should be thrown away. Obviously depend on severity of the accident. At a cost £9.99 I have no issue buys 10 of them to replace my Catlike helmet or 5 of them to replace the specialised helmet.

I don’t fall off or get into accident that often. But these things do happen especially on busy london roads and roads are poorly maintained with massive pot holes at the end of a high speed bump where buses and lorries have been pounding the road surface when going over them too quick and forming an effective cliff as soon as you ride off the apex of the speed bump!

The kiss of the wall was entirely my own fault for not looking where I am going. Being distracted can be somewhere painful at times.

Helmets are meant to crack before your head.

Also Muc Off may be a rip off at its usual price, but at this price I'd say it's highly cost effective and affordable for a lot of people so
I have used that dry lube before and it is terrible - the wet lube is ok but i'd really advise against the dry version

Just got back from second trip today, this time for helmet
I haven't used any of the others, but the protect and shine works wonders on motorcycles after washing them.
Muc-Off are another company that has switched to manufacturing anti-bac hand gels too, just so you know.

for sale here

And they’ve donated most of it to front line workers too.

I’ve found their stuff to be ok. Not amazing, but good enough for the Aldi price. I’m comparing it to trade stuff though, so might be expecting too much. Voted hot anyway, it’s worth giving it a go.

I believe you are supposed to replace helmets every couple of years anyway due to UV damage or some such.
I bought one yesterday so I can in theory get back on the old bike I have, had usual standards, not sure if German DIN standard is superior to UK standard. Light included, everything moulded together nicely. Steal for £10.

Thought these were the genuine Muc-Off products - but are they all fake as labelled as 'Muc - Off Urban' and designed to look like the Muc-Off products
I bought them all previously. They are genuine muc-off. I imagine they are exactly the same products but they give them the Urban labels so they can justify charging nearly double in most other shops. Only the two lubes are worth having. I use other degreaser from screwfix. And washing up liquid is not going to harm your bike despite what they tell you!
