Can anyone recommend a decent low profile helmet, up to around £80 ish... Helmets generally don't suit me at all, and I know it is not about the look, but I would rather only look a tit than a complete tit. :shock:

So far I am thinking of the Specialized Propero II ... Tried it on and felt ok...

Thx in advance folks.

    Bang on budget til Monday and good value at twice the price. Pretty compact too.

  • What, the kask is not low profile? Or the propero? Or that ridiculous mask thing :)
  • I got a bell array for the same reason. I fitted a large or just into a medium comfortably, so went for the medium.

    And that isn't a constructive response but you don't see me chucking rolleyes at you :wink:

    The Kask has more space inside it and is smaller on the outside than my Giro Havoc which is a lot less mushroomy than most Giro lids. I'm not sure there is that much potential for a lid to be any lower profile and still pass the regs but you could always make some suggestions rather than posting non working picture links!

    Have you seen the Giro Reverb range?
    Incidentally I have near new medium size orange/white one to flog, as my girlfriend who wanted it so much, wore it three times and decided she doesn't like it...
