Never too expensive when it comes to safety paid well over 500 quid for my first one nearly 20 years ago.
Don't know why I'm looking at this because I'm never happy with a new helmet even though I have had to learn and relearn the lesson on too many occasions to try before you buy. Its not like you can try them for a week of so. Reviews never seem to help and I cling on to the same old helmets for far too long (dare not say how long). Might be an age thing because I cant remember it being a consideration when I was younger, if it fastened and didn't fly off when you were going faster than you ought to I was happy. I really need (not want) a new helmet, just going to have to grit my teeth and get on with it.
Afraid I’m gonna have to stop you there… lol
Do they do XXXL as I have the biggest melon head you have ever seen
I have the original GT Air, and basically most helmets were tight on my forehead specially Arai. It would possibly be a good fit for you. Its not a great time to go shopping and being indoors but the best thing to do is to go to a shop and try it on for 15 - 20 mins while walking around. My head is a round shape and the gt air was the only one I could use. Its a very personal thing so I wouldn't go on online advice, you have to try it on. It has to fit you right for it to be safe.
You value ya head at a £10......wow somethings you dont scrimp on and a lid is one
it's like when you see ppl sell helements second hand, I was told a few things, one is get right fitting one, not too tight or lose, once there get knocked, throw it away, and after 5/10 years there expire due to the materiel. I donated my old helmet to fire and ambulance as there used them to practice on
£10 for a helmet !!! What's it made off ..... Cheese or Egg Shells (lol)
For this price I don't know why people bother to comment about safety. It's 10quid. It will suit some but not others. I'd buy this for occasional pillion rider but yeh I wouldnt use this full time. Spend at least hundred minimum.
Picked my 2 up 2day in the off chance I buy a scooter and mopehead some where down the line
Ordered one yesterday afternoon from the Tunbridge Well branch, went to collect it today and they said that the stock was wrong and they didn’t have the lock, but they kindly gave me a Magnumplus Goliath 1.1 which is a better version. I didn’t even have to ask, they just offered the better one straight away and said “Is this one OK?”, I almost laughed when I said “Yeah, It’ll do”. Halfords £10 bargain.
Stock available in Scarborough
I agree, nothing can deter a professional thief. Those that drive around in vans looking for motorcycles, mopeds and expensive pushbikes have all the tools (and weapons) they need on board. The problem with the UK is that the penalties aren't severe enough. Also bystanders won't challenge for fear of getting stabbed.
Good price, but as usual with Halfords, no stock
When you have a 22mm chain for home a 16mm chain is relatively light! I use a kriega tail pack to store all my security. I bought it a few years back, the 22mm is overkill, but my motorcycle is very visible and as a chain should never break it is an investment well worth it IMO. Especially as I never remove it from the ground anchor. Having one chain always in the tail is very convenient.

Lol thought for a moment it was a serious question as some helmets really mess your hair
It's thermoplastic so if your just planning to bump your head on the shed roof, you'll be fine.
I have this helmet and find it well vented even when closed which can be bad for colder rides . Great for summer though
Thanks for the feedback (y)
Shark are great helmets if you like a shower whilst riding... Back and forth with Shark about 4 times - god knows how many times it was smashed around during shipping. They say no problem yet I get wet every rain ride - doesn't happen with any other helmets. They look good on the surface but don't be fooled.
RST gear is now CE certified where applicable which means it's triple stitched on the seams and passes abrasion testing. 'AAA' being the best down to 'A'. Their old gear might not have been great but anything made in the last 3 - 5 years is very good. Some of the premium brands are terrible so it pays to do a little research.
I’ve got a full RST setup (pants/jacket/gloves/shoes). Absolutely love it. Only criticism (as with most leathers i guess) is that it’s very heavy. Other than that, the quality is excellent for a very fair price if you can get the stuff on offer. Just need to find a quiet lid now!
Yeah, well some of the premium brands aren't that good. I'd not usually touch RST after seeing several sets fail badly in crashes - I've an old pair of their leathers and I'd sooner crash in jeans... But at this price point, especially with level 2 hip armour, there isn't much 'branded' gear that can compete. So worthy of heat I reckon.
Just as good as the premium brands without the price tag.
Nothing to see here move along .....Lockdown waisters ..... ;)
Same experience I had with it - there was an awful whistle from the visor at anything above about 30MPH. The fit and finish was also pretty bad, the thing would leak water in through the sides of the visor. Last time I bought a cheaper end helmet and has pretty much put me off the brand. Went for a Schuberth C3 Pro to replace it after a couple of months and then the AGV Sport Modular Carbon a few years later after the C3 was looking pretty worn out - both of which have been great, the C3 edges the AGV though as far as noise but then the weight of AGV is amazing for a flip up.
I have the original Duke and pinlock is a gamechanger. I would buy this if I was still riding. Bike has been parked outside rusting away since pre lockdown. Heat!
Can't comment on the lid but I've used sportsbikeshop a few times and they're spot on highly recommend the shop (y)
5 star SHARP rating https://sharp.dft.gov.uk/helmets/caberg-duke-ii/
Wow, I didn't know it was single shell size, my other half would look like a bobble head with an XS
Ah, thanks but no thanks, I can drop two & still not be bothered to drop the undertray to retrieve them (lol)
Good filler item (lol)
I’ll give you £1.20 for one. Including delivery. Final offer. Please make sure they fit a mk 2 focus. Thank you. All the best.
2nd hand mazda, I dropped the engine undertray & found two old oil caps sat on the steering rack. Seems someone dropped them (twice) & just fitted new ones instead of trying to retrieve them! So I have two spare caps now ;)
The seals do go on these, you don't have that problem with honda
Mine just arrived today, 24h Parcel Force. (Free delivery) Perfect fit, mine is the MS (when the K3SV was a ML) So light and small its ridiculous! Comes with 2 bags (one is 100% cotton), pinlock 120 and a small bottle of lube for the visor springs. Very happy with the upgrade indeed. Not any different from my prwvious 550£ Airoh.
True. Unless you already know your size in AGV lids (they all vary) it’s perhaps not the best time to be looking for a new lid, unless you desperately need one.
Not sure if you've been out during the last year but, showrooms are closed and there is a viral respiratory pandemic, going around trying helmets probably isn't the right idea. Some people know their number too, not to mention there are free returns and swaps. Take care.
As someone with a J cup bra I measure up as a 52 chest even though I'm a size 16 everywhere else. My bf is a bodybuilder and his chest is a 53 chest. People come in all sorts of sizes but not necessarily fat lol.
Mine arrived and is going straight back. Sadly I don't have arms like an orang utang and even though I ordered one for my chest size you could probably stuff a small gibbon down the front with me wearing it and there would still be room.
Great deal, but i've given up buying mc clothing online, unless its something specific that i've had before or already tried on in a shop. The sizes are often all over the place.
I've a Triumph Viper Jacket available in 40, hardly worn if anyone is interested.

How do u get it to that price?
Can't put price on 5 star helmet! Great find! ahh..."Looking back at the data, recent thermoplastic AGVs like the AGV compact have scored 4 stars out of five and in fact, of the four thermoplastic AGVs that have been tested over the years, every single one has scored four stars for safety, which is a very impressive result indeed."
Average price is £100-£120 shame it's a small
Thats a great price. Have an AGV lid myself and very happy with it. If you're after a small, thats a bargain
I wouldn't expect otherwise, but personally while riding in the (other) waterproof gear I slap on fluorescent overtrousers and overjacket anyway when it's raining -- both to protect my gear from being covered in grime (which will impact breathability), and to increase my visibility.
Yes, true. I guess it depends on your expectations and budget.
The 115 Good reviews on the Sportbikeshop website seems to indicate that most buyers are happy with this budget jacket. It has the limitations that Bentobox mentions, but you have to look at those in the context of the price and the how you are going to use it. The Richa Infinity Pro listed on HUKD is a far better jacket, but is 2 1/2 times the price.
Because I've tried them out and most the competitors. They are junk IMHO. Not 100% waterproof, (check out what people say. But seems the seams can leak). An odd fit/shaping, (very large neck aperture, with an adjuster that comes undone easily). Plenty of bad design features, (very short body with not enough overlap between that and the pants, neck aperture. The thermal liner in the pants is longer than the shell). Feels very light and cheap. No back protector. Just pay a bit more and get the Richa or RST suits. Both have better fit, finish, material, design and come with a back protector and are both D2O armour I believe..
Why do you say that?
