So I need a new helmet and I'm limited on cash . I'm a size adult M and have only $100 to really spend. Anybody know where I can get really good deals on a helmet and not any cheaply made stuff ... Something that will actually protect my cranium haha thanks
I wouldn't recomend buying a new helmet this side of MX for anything less than $250.00. I know what it means to have only so much to buy anything with. I think for the standards of the lesser protective lids. I may be looking to buy a used name brand lid vs a New $100 lid. If $100 is all you have for right now Look for a good used name brand helmet.
If it has a DOT sticker on the back, it meets the same specs as any other helmet.
SNELL is a higher grade of protection usually reserved for street helmets.
Anything other than those two designations is nothing but a marketing ploy to get you to spend more for no reason.
Safety is measured. -BIG DAN
EDIT: I love my $65 DOT approved helmet. Replace ANY helmet every 5 years or after a single drop or impact!!!
