- Daily Commute helmet (moon on stick)
* Daily usage cycling helmet
* Good airflow
* Prefer MTB to roadie styling.
* The less padding to soak up sweat and go manky the better
* Durable padding – should survive weekly (or more) washes in washing machine
* 59cm head, regular shape???
* Catlike Leaf, favourite of recent times, a good fit, even after pads were thrown away.
* 661 Recon Scout helmet another good fit but padding is deteriorated < 1.5yr
Any recommendations?Posted 7 months ago
The trouble with the On-one XC offering, and others which go from 58-62, is they tend to wobble side-to-side on my 59cm head.
There’s this MET road/mtb helmet:Posted 7 months ago
I’ve got one of these from Decathlon – used it for mtb several times a year for a few years and it was comfy. Now use it for night mtb-ing with a light on top of it.
Maybe I’m minging but I’ve never washed the pads in it…..
My newest mtb helmet is a Giro Chronicle and that is a slightly more snug fit – but it runs a lot hotter.Posted 7 months agoDezBSubscriber
Louis Garneau Edge is what I use daily (fits your description). Comes with spare pads, which i haven’t had to use yet, almost 2 years after purchase.
I find (tip!) dabbing the pads with kitchen roll immediately after a ride stops pads going stale and avoids needing to wash them weekly (or even monthly).
It’s the big central vent which makes for a cool helmet (arf) ime.
Evens don’t seem to have the Garneau anymore so you’d have to hunt around.Posted 7 months agotrail_ratMember
if you sweat that much then a buff would be a prudent easily washable non fallapartable thing that could be worn under your helmet.
I wear one all year round – prevents sweat eye as well.
as for the helmet.
which ever specialized helmet fits your budget. Ive found them to be the best alrounder for style/budget/venting/comfortPosted 7 months ago
Just in case anyone is interested, I got an Alpina MYTHOS L.E. MTB Helmet, and a spare pad set too, for £45, from bikediscount. Also discovered the straps are easily removable so they can be washed as well. It’s also well ventilated and reasonably comfortable (especially now that I’ve bothered to adjust the straps properly).Posted 5 months agotonyjaMember
You can get a Giro Hex in large for the price of the Foray atm. If you liked the Catlike you’ll love thisPosted 5 months ago
All the Giros
If you’re on a tight budget, the Giro skyline on the next page is in your size and is only £22.
Good thing with the Giros is its easy to buy replacement pads too.
