SainStyle Helmets, any experience?

by FMOAB   August 18, 2013  

Following a crash I'm looking to replace a helmet. Does anyone have any experience of SainStyle helmets sold on Amazon. They look like a decent Catlike clone, but I can't find any reviews online. http://www.amazon.co.uk/SainStyle-Racing-Cycling-Bicycle-Helmet/dp/B00ADINMI6/ref=pd_sim_sbs_sg_1

FYI - Prendas do the real thing for £89 http://www.prendas.co.uk/details.asp?ID=3318

Might be a better bet!

Nice spot Gkam, but isn't that one team kit? Mustn't break you own rules now. Unless it is okay because they will very soon be a defunct team and therefore retro.


I am stronger than Mensa, Miller and Mailer, I spat out Plath and Pinter.

Thanks for the responses, but that's still more than I really wanted to pay. In the meantime I've bought a Carrera Razor £45 in the sales.

The helmet is for my son who cracked his previous lid after crashing in a race. You'll be glad to hear though that I'm not starting a "helmet saved his life thread" Angel

Bikeboy, I don't do helmets, apart from on sportives where I have to.

FMOAB, if he's racing, it would be worth getting a known brand over a cheaper "replica" just for safety's sake Wink
