Had my eye on one of these and Evans have them for £59! C+ liked them. Any of you guys got one and like them? Don't like them?

    Doesnt really matter with helmets. Its passed the safety tests. It may or may not suit your head shape. Try the helmet on in the shop - thats always the best - you really dont want a helmet that isnt comfy.

  • I've got one, it's pretty comfy and secure.

    I can't say I've ever really noticed is, which is probably a good sign!

    I tried the Ionos and Atmos but they just looked ridiculous on my head - had almost given up on Giro but tried the Saros as a last resort and it was more comfortable and didn't look as huge on my head.

    I managed to get the 2011 version with the new RocLoc5 for £69.99 - you can get it for that from Fudges ... 3&o=131780

    Hopefully it will fit as well as the 2010 version I tried on in Evans
