Helmets any recomendations/avoid at all costs..
POC Trabec excellent. Got a Feature as a ‘spare’ helmet and it works well although I feel it’s a bit warm. Use a Giro Instinct on the road and that is comfy and well ventilated. Catlike Leaf has quite a few dans on here and I wouldn’t mind trying one of them next.Posted 4 years ago
Boo to tweeks cycles, ‘usually dispatched within 24hrs’ has turned into ‘around 22 day’s’ when I chased my order. So when I cancel the order and go on the search again can I still order the turbo trainer and class it as a beer buy even though I’m no longer under the influence of leffe (and port) ?Posted 4 years agobeicmynyddMember
I purchased a Met from Halfords it was about £30 in the sale before Christmas , not sure about the model name, blue with a LED at the back.
Had a big crash in Coed y Brenin made a big crack and dent at the side of the helmet, i just got up and rode away. ( but with a broken scaphoid)Posted 4 years ago
I have re purchased a helmet and in random fashion have gone for the ixs this time, I have also rationalised that the turbo was bought in a beer haze and as such I should have to suffer the consequences of my rash action, thus have re ordered that as well. Thank you and welcomePosted 4 years agodekadanseMember
Still with my Fox Flux, but Recon’s OK too.
If I were buying now, and given that the point of a helmet is head protection against trauma, I would go for one with MIPS, which apparently diminishes rotational forces injury. If you recall, some of the least stupid arguments produced by the helmet deniers (RIP Tandem Jeremy)were that if you wear a helmet you may be less likely to be killed in a major accident, but still quite likely to receive diffuse axonal injuries (I work with people with brain injuries, and be assured, that’s nasty). MIPS are designed to minimise DAI (not the Welshman) – therefore a helmet with MIPS gets my vote.Posted 4 years agoPotdogSubscriber
The A1 is an amazingly comfy lid. But it’s expensive, hot and bits are already falling off mine. One of the nice little alloy screws holding the visor on disappeared on a ride about 3 weeks ago. Then last week the little rubber pad on the fit adjuster decided to fall off last week. 😥Posted 4 years ago
