    Buying a Helmet for My Son

    My son, who lives in London needs a new helmet. We are going to give him one for Christmas. Since we aren't certain what size he is I was going to buy one from Wiggle, so he can return it if it doesn't fit him. However, the Wiggle helmets part of the website has gone into a black hole and can't...

    Helmet cam advice.

    Hi all, Had an incident today whereby a HGV driver made little effort to stop at a roundabout and was edging forward cutting down my access to the lane I was trying to enter. I shouted at him and he pulled along side and the got out. The younger, rugby playing me, would have hung around to see...

    Yet more helmet BS; by Grant Shapps, Transport Secretary.

    BBC link. Grant Shapps came off his bike and cut his lip. "Thank goodness for the bike helmet, without which it could have been much worse". A bold statement to make, but given the few details of the incident, very hard to quantify. It's just a bit concerning that someone in his position makes...

    What to do after a crash with helmet?

    I know with motor bikes we were told not to remove helmet after a crash, but my push bike helmet must have a battery to work the lights on it, and likely that battery is the type which can go on fire if damaged are air gets in, so where there are lights built into a helmet should it be removed...

    Searching for a reasonably priced helmet cam?

    Hi all, as the title says, I'm looking for a camera which won't break the bank. I've tried the cheap Chinese type but it's impossible to set the time/date, and the battery dies within six months. I don't particularly want a TV screen perched on my helmet and I've set myself a budget of £100 for...

    Reporting Motorists - Helmet Cam Review

    Do we have a space in the forum for objective review of camera footage? Most of us have been involved in near misses or incidents that have raised our blood pressure more than others. Some have managed to capture these on camera. Sometimes the emotion we feel may be enhanced by other...

    How long should a helmet last

    Yes Yes Yes - I know - let's not make this about whether or not to have a helmet please I wear a helmet because 1) my wife feels happier about me wandering around roads on a bike if I wear a helmet - hence when the doorbell goes and I come back in with a parcel - when she asks what it is and I...

    More helmet BS; by Carol Kirkwood.

    Carol Kirkwood was knocked off her bike by a car last year. She has been reliving the traumatic event in various parts of the media today, which is all very good until she mentioned the H word.... So her nose "hit the deck", but somehow the rest of her face was saved by a peak at the front of...

    Pro Cyclists definitely need to wear a Crash Helmet! :(

    You only have to look at the amount of Crashes in the Tour de France going on at the moment to understand the title of this thread!

    Helmets

    After much searching and research I finally found the perfect helmet. Bit pricy, but good protection.. But, I need some advice. Is the plumage on top to big?

    Helmet size.

    I’m a 56 head. The helmet I like is sold out in medium but the small is 52-56. The medium is 54-58. I should be ok with the small with a hat on right? Or would you go M & be in between instead of at the outer edge?

    Cleaning helmet straps (mould)

    A bit niche, but does anyone have any tips for cleaning mould from helmet straps? I have 3, kept in the garage but just went to get one out and all 3 have some form of mould on them. I assume the garage has got a bit more humid than usual as I've been zwifting in there this winter whereas I...

    Not a helmet thread

    Appearances to the contrary, I’m not a hat person. It’s pandemicwear to lock down my overabundant hair. Do you like hats? Have a favourite?

    New bike helmet

    Hi I currently have a Trax helmet which is a bit small, and a relic from maybe 15 years ago. I ride a road bike and budget is between £50 - £75. Know some helmets have a light in the back of them, but not sure if they bit of a fad? I tend to go out for a couple of hours and do 30 miles...

    Helmet camera. Drift Ghost X any good?

    My trusty contour roam is dying after 8 years service. It's deciding not to record when it's supposed to or reject memory cards so not good. So I'm looking for a "low profile" replacement. One camera that caught my eye is a Drift Ghost X. Has anyone on here got one? If so how did they find...

    Bike helmet pad replacement

    Does anyone know of any decent helmet padding replacement kits? The foam pads on my old Giro Hex are worn out, and I can't get model specific ones except from Germany. Just wondering if anyone's come across a good universal kit? Found this but it's quite pricey as it comes from Switzerland...

    Helmet but not safety

    That got your attention. I'm thinking of buying a helmet but don't want to get started on protection or lack of offered by a helmet. My question is different. I currently wear a cap when out on the bike. I sweat. A lot. No really a lot. Would the airflow provided by a helmet help with this? It's...

    Just ordered a Brand-X EH1 Enduro MTB helmet

    I've ordered the helmet in the title but it was kind of an impulse buy as I'd scoured the Internet for 2 hours and every helmet I wanted were out of stock so just seen it and ordered it. It did have one 1 lined 5 star review though. I am now having second thoughts. I cannot find any reviews any...
