Those on one helmets
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.Posted 4 years agowwaswasSubscriber
I’d just like to know which standard it’s been tested to. 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.Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
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.Posted 4 years agoalthepalSubscriber
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.Posted 4 years ago
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 🙂Posted 4 years ago
I like the look of http://www.on-one.co.uk/i/q/HEMECAMEU/met_camaleonte_executive_urban_helmet for my short commute. Save my decent helmet for proper rides.Posted 4 years agoAjsMonkeySubscriber

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.
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…Posted 4 years ago
Good skills Mr On-One.andylMember
They look special needs in my humble opinion.
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.Posted 4 years agoannebrSubscriber

I’m not sure I’d be to comfortable wearing a helmet called cameltoe. 😡 😉 😆Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
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.
+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)….Posted 4 years agobrantSubscriber
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.Posted 4 years ago
