- New helmet: Any chois=ces other than Spec Tactic?
This seems to be the go-to choice for the £50 quid price point, but are there any other choices to consider for an MTB specific lid that have got good protection and are well ventilated?Posted 4 years ago

7 iDP M2 aka Fly Racing Freestone
maybe a NOS Met Parabellum
Well, that’s me lost to the world then. Choice. Dammit.Posted 4 years ago
7IDP one looks particularly good value to mePosted 4 years ago
I’m in the same position as you and with a similar budget.Posted 4 years ago
I really like the look of the 7 iDP M2.
What really annoys me about helmets is that they rarely show them on a person! Some can look very odd but you wouldn’t know until you’ve bought it and tried it on 😡
JE James have some Bern Morrisons as well http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/bern-morrison-zipmold-helmet-with-breakaway-visor-id82936.html

Hmmmm yes, it does look nice. Looks like it has a bit more protection round the back and sides than the Tactic as well.
CRC may get some money…Posted 4 years ago
That Bern looks warm! Looks similar to a Kayak lid too.Posted 4 years ago
Here’s the 7IDP on an actual head

Cheers George. That looks nice! Lots of protection down the back of the head and they come in ENDURO colours. I think I’ll buy one.Posted 4 years ago
That 7IDP helmet looks pretty awesome, especially for the price.Posted 4 years ago
The Bern Morrison reminds me of a woodlouse 🙂Posted 4 years ago
The pads on my Tactic 2 don’t last five minutes before they split and leave a plastic doofer rubbing on your forehead. £10 a time to replace as well.Posted 4 years ago
I tried the 7IDP helmet on, medium was huge, which is my normal size in all other lids.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve had my eye on the 7IDP m2 for a while but struggling to find anywhere that i can try one on. Any of the big chains sell them or anywhere down South?Posted 4 years ago
Buy from crc. Send back if it doesn’t fit.Posted 4 years ago
Just bought three (for the family 😉 ). All within budget-ish:
– 7IDP m2
– TLD A1 Drone Red (down to £70)
– Mavic Notch
I’ll report back on how they are. It’ll be interesting comparing the A1 to the M2.Posted 4 years ago
I’m new to the forum (lurking for years though).Posted 4 years ago
I bought one of the 7IDP M2 helmets in that dayglo orange colour last week, it’s very comfy, and you’ll be easily spotted on google earth should you go missing wearing it.
Whatever fits (TM)Posted 4 years ago
Bought a Bontrager Lithos from Pedal On last week. 30% off so a whisker under £50. It did that wonderful thing of feeling like it wasn’t there when I rode in it.Posted 4 years ago
Damn STW threads, I now have a 7IDP M2 on the way myself, ended up going for grey but hoping the blue straps don’t look as naff as they do in the pics. I would have gone for black but previous experience of white straps on an MTB helmet is they look grim after a while (and are impossible to get white again)…Posted 4 years ago
Thanks for the heads up on the 7IDP M2, bought one and it is superb. Much better than my Urge Enduromatic in terms of fit and adjustment, so I have demoted that one to night duties.
The orange is very, very orange. Very orange.Posted 4 years ago
