    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...

    What glue should I use on my helmet

    Hi, Don't worry i don't intend on glueing my helmet back together, but more so of the soft foam lining that velcro,s inside it. I took mine out tonight to give it a quick rinse under the tap, only to find out the soft foam is coming unstuck from the velvet type material. The helmet is one of...

    Livall Smart Helmet MT1

    Inside the helmet there are controls mounted just inside the brim, power on, volume up and down, co-located with a microphone and a charging port. This charging port is one of my few (possibly only) dislikes about the helmet, as while it’s waterproof and pretty much idiot proof, it’s also unlike...

    Specialized Helmet 'trade in'?

    Does anybody have any experience of this please? I am led to believe that if I trade in my old Specialized lid, I can get a like for like replacement with 40% off?
