Helmets...

Post by qcnr on Wed Mar 13, 2013 4:04 am

Have an ancient AGV R1, that has done the job up to now. But it's getting on a bit, has scratches,
plastic vent covers are broken, straps are wearing.
Have tried on a AGV AX-8 Duo and was very surprised at how comfy and much better field
of view it has compared to my current on (size S) Have found it for £180 free delivery.
Anything else to recommend?

Nope, helmets are very much personal choice and shouldnt be lead by anyone else.

Bollocks I cant stop this!

I use either a Shoei open face or an Indian copy of the German helmet with no safety numbers at all.

If you've got a £5 head get a £5 helmet otherwise..........

While that might have been somewhat true when Bell helmets coined the marketing phrase and there weren't any 'standards' as such, things have (hopefully) moved on a bit. These days if it's got the type approval and it fits right then it should be at least adequate.

I say 'hopefully' because I just got a new flip front helmet from lidl Laughing And an open face one for summer slighty warmer weather from the same place. The plan I have is to not test them Wink
