  • Those on one helmets
  • Anyone got one? Are they ok? I am interested in coverage and how well the venting works.

    No one got one?

    Been looking at these myself, reckon for £40 it’s worth a punt…..

    Would be nice to see it a bit better before taking a punt.. ok, its only £40 but if its hot and not very comfy its£40 that could have been spent elsewhere..

    Distance selling regs mean you can get it to see.
    And if after riding it, you hate it, send it back with my name on it and I’ll make sure you get a full refund.

    What helmets?

    One of the considerations for me when choosing a helmet is – are replacement pads easily available?

    To what safety standards have the they been tested?

    I assume?

    I’d want to see more than one angle of it before I clicked the button! Not sure buying from on one with the expectation you might have to send it back is a good idea.

    To what safety standards have the they been tested?

    To meet European retail standards I presume,

    Sure. I’d just like to know which standard it’s been tested to. After all, I’m buying it for my safety. I’d be a bit of a dick if I didn’t know the level of protection it offered me!

    Do you know what all the standards are and how they differ?

    Do you pick a helmet because it only passed Snell or whatever tests and failed the others, or vice versa?

    It’s illegal to sell a helmet that doesn’t meet EU standards.

    I have no idea what those standards (or any others) are or how they are measured but I’m prepared to accept that On-One do and have ensured compliance. Same as they do with their frames.

    It should be tested to (BS) EN1078 if it’s not send it back, and contact trading standards…

    TBH though just because they’re relatively “Cheap” doesn’t mean they are inferior to pricier helmets in terms of impact protection; EPS is EPS, you tend to pay more money to get less weight and more holes (vents) so that £100+ Giro/MET/Bell/KASK/POC/etc is probably no better at protecting you in an accident…

    I’d not looked a the On-One/Planet X lids before, from the pictures their “Trail Sport Helmet” looks a bit more aesthetically pleasing IMO, and at £20 I’d consider giving that a punt…

    TBH I’d been tending towards the cheap and cheerful UNi-size Giro models lately and have yet to die as a result… so a cheap and cheerful on-one branded one would be worth a try I reckon.

    This^ The £22 Giro unisize Indicator I got fits well, is comfy and better vented than the Xen it replaced.

    They look special needs in my humble opinion.
    It’s much better to spend a little bit more and have something you like.

    The item descriptions aren’t very ‘descriptive’?
    Before ordering I would want, at the very least, a description of the fit system accompanied buy some detail pics.

    It’s a MTB helmet that is light and has vents doesn’t really cut it IMHO.

    I like the look of the Trail helmet but another angle of view would be better before actually deciding to buy. What a hassle sending it back would be???. Just present it better on your website.

    Mrs Yak has just ordered a Trail one after some damage to her old giro one in an crash last w-e. At £20- seemed worth a punt. Will report back once it arrives and gets ridden.

    Cheers Brant- just thinking a few different views on the website would be good- side/top/rear views.. and poss one showing the inside with straps and retention adjustment. £40 does seem a decent price and having bough on-one stuff before I dont doubt the quality or value but I’d just rather see a bit more of it before I’d buy it.

    I am looking at buying one of these too but would like more pictures to make my mind up please brant

    I think more pictures wont make it more attractive.
    You can’t polish a you know what and all that.
    They’ve used the best profile they could.

    The helmets will very likely sell out, with the current descriptions and photographs. If On-One pay someone to take more photos, write more description and add it to the website, they’ll probably have to put the price up.

    I like that they’re proof that adding Enduro to the name or description makes it twice as expensive 🙂

    Goes off to buy Pink glitter to put the name on the helmet.

    The bloke selling them comes on here saying you are welcome to try it and if you don’t like it send it back. He even said try it on a ride, and yet most here have still found room to moan? 🙄

    Sounds very, very good to me…
    Good skills Mr On-One.

    No moan, merely asthetics. Thats all.

    Still, same applies surely?
    Good offer I’d say.
    (Though I agree, that more pictures should be on the website…) 🙂

    .

    Bit harsh. But then again, a lot of middle aged mountain bikers kitted out in all their gear for a couple of hours mincing around look a bit ‘special’! I get quite embarrassed by some of the sights I see up on the hills hoping I don’t look like that!

    Good on on-one I say. UK sold helmet (so complies with all safety tests and warranty backup) for a reasonable price. Just what is needed in a market with overpriced stuff.

    I’m not sure I’d be to comfortable wearing a helmet called cameltoe. 😡 😉 😆

    +1 – I do need a new cheap “Trail” type general MTB helmet TBH it’s a 3 way toss up between the OO “Trail sport”, a Giro indicator for a couple of quid more elsewhere, or maybe one of the 2011 Rifts OO are flogging for £25…

    I know either of the Giro’s will fit and it’s only a fiver in it, but if the OO lid has better rear coverage and looks OK I’d be happy to take a punt I think, I just want to see a couple of other angles (maybe someone wearing it for abit of scale?)…

    Come on, work that sales magic! Dance for my meagre £20 or I’m off to CRC!!*

    (*I’m not really off to CRC, their website is still cack, prices are no better, so I’ll probably just buy the OO helmet and see how I go)….

    I’m fairly sure from the pic that the OO Trail Sport has better rear coverage than a Giro Indicator. That’s what I reckoned anyway, then ordered the OO. Hopefully here tomorrow, so i’ll find out.

    Comments about content/words/pics echo what we thought earlier, and someone is working on some better stuff.

    They are all tested to the EN standard.

    As for the look – some trail helmets do look a bit odd. Someone pointed out the “screaming face” on a POC helmet to me once, and I can’t see past it now (like the FedEx arrow).

    Right. Off to find something in China to eat.

    Nothing wrong with the look of this helmet!?!? It looks like all the rest.

    Thanks Brant. Could you give an outline of the testing procedure and how your helmets faired in the tests. As it’s a piece of safety equipment I’m more interested in its test performance than how it looks.

    Interesting, do you ask other helmets manufacturers the same questions as well?

    Genuine, BTW, I just buy on looks pretty much, I assume ( perhaps naively) that they need to conform to the same standards, certainly fallen any number if times and I’m still here 🙂

    Would this helmet receive so much love with “superstar” written on it?
