My other half wants to buy me a new helmet as mine has a small crack in the back where it hit a tree (with my head in it) Rolling Eyes .......its still fine but i would like to replace it.

So......has anyone got any opinions on a good helmet to replace my Giro with ?

Cheers

Hi m8
I have been looking at the Fox Flux Black Camo & the Giro Havoc Helmet for Xmas.
Both Seem fine i`ll pick one once i tried both on, prices are about the same everywhere.
Not seen any 08 models any cheaper..

Now then Richie,

Do you know that Giro do a half price crash-replacement for their helmets? I got my Giro Xen replaced last year for 45 - bargain.

Can't remember the site, but I'll find it tomorrow on my work pc.....

How come you damaged the back of the helmet on a tree? did you reverse into it or did the tree sneak up on you when your back was turned?

Mmmm..........reading the rules you need your proof of purchase Crying or Very sad ....you still got yours ??........also they want 45 as payment and i can get an 06 E2 for that price from old stock Rolling Eyes
Good idea tho.........have to remember to keep the reciepts.
