Which ones to avoid?

One's that don't fit you.

Each and any you find in a bike shop wil be just fine, they all have to reach a required legal safety standard.
We all have different shaped heads and different helmets suit some for comfort but not others, go to a shop and try some, there are plenty well within your budget, £30 - £150, if you want less noise go for a full face and check the visor has a good seal when down.

Helmet

My ears are b***ered from too many years with noisy helmets (ear plugs make me feel dizzy) so have a Schuberth S1 Pro now, quietest helmet I've had..£170 if you shop around.

I would go for a full face, shop around your local bike shops, if your budget is upto £150 then your in a good position to get a good decent helmet, even haggle if the one you like is over your budget, just flash the money at the sales man that usually gets them drooling.

Hats to avoid are these they look good but they are mince!

Simple .....

AGV might be the best thing ....

However id advise wearing ear plugs and get a right fitting helmet anyway .....

no helmet on earth will sheild your ears from the destruction they face as soon as you hit 40mph.....

Arai Condor

I have the Condor and it's a decent lid. It's not the top of the range or anything but I've no complaints about it, it's a good helmet and affordable too.
Currently listed at around £220+ if you want graphics but you can get the plain Black, White or Silver version for £160 if you shop around or pop into your local J&S store as they always seem to have 10-20% off Arai's and you can haggle a bit further too.

(No, I don't work for J&S - just find they're always cheap on helmets).

Condor

Just to screw it up....

I have one and it's the worst helmet I've ever had and I would never buy an Arai again on the basis of it.
