    It's finding a outlet close by (Glasgow) that sells a good variation of helmets :(

    Hi,
    Im also after a helmet for trails at £50/£60 mark.
    There are several shops near me but was wondering if theres any brand/model that anyone would recomend for good safety and ventilation?? If theres any in a dayglo or fluorescent colour then bonus!!

    Evans It is then. Mcnultycop would you know if they stock most of what they have online as I have seen a couple that I like? :P

    Thanks

    Alpine at St George's Cross, beside the underground, have a good variety/stock to try hats on.

    I haven't got a clue, I live about 200 miles away. I just checked on their website to make sure Evans had a Glasgow branch.

    The 661 recon and fox flux are both popular. I have the former and like it.

    Try those if you can.

    I went to buy one last week, but I wanted black, which are on back order until late May (they'd told me they were getting some in that day, but they only got two, and they'd both sold before I got there, and it was a 30 mile round trip, grrr), but they had green in stock. Loved the helmet, it just wasn't my colour.

    I'm looking at getting a Fox Flux. They're £60/£70, which is a little more than I'd like (£50) but I hear it's really rather good.
    I work in a bike shop, so try get me some discount and order one. I shall be digging on this tomorrow :P
