- New helmet – which one?
In typical STW fashion I seem to be incapable of making my own mind up, so could do with some help.
Currently got a Giro Pneumo which is on it's last legs, so looking to replace it.
Will spend about £100, and would prefer a well vented design. I'll use it for MTB and Road, and commuting every day.
I like the idea of the Specialized helmet's mouth port thing, but obviously will try before I buy.
Any reccomendations?Posted 7 years agostumpy01Member
I've got a Met Veleno, which was quite expensive, fits my head shape OK but the padding/straps/adjustment is absolute pony. So, I wouldn't recommend a Met.
But, as already said – it's the fit that's most important.
I used to have a Bell and recently tried a Variant which was very comfy, seems well vented, looks OK and will probably be my next choice.Posted 7 years ago
I think the next one up (in your price bracket) is the Slant.
Never really been keen on Met helmets, no rational reason for this, just think they're a bit "Euro". But if they're comfy and vented then I could get over this.
Only had Giro or Bell helmets in the past (probably based on marketing at an early age: greg lemond and Giro, John Tomac and Bell)
Re-reading that it sounds like something Hora would say. Oh dear.Posted 7 years agocheers_driveMember
It's really down to what suits your head shape. I'm between M and L (mushroom head or headache) and I've finally think I've found the perfect helmet for me in the Bell Sweep. The Giro Hex was also good but one of their top end road helmets of same size is far too small.Posted 7 years ago
Get which one fits the best (and looks OK).
