The Transfer is a cracking helmet (no pun intended!) even more so when you look at how little it costs. Giro’s designers have always come up with great looking designs and sales have no doubt been helped by the likes of Lance Armstrong being photographed for the last decade wearing the brand.
Bell’s bargain priced city isn’t simply a Cinderella version of the Metropolis, rather it enjoys some unique detailing such as an integrated insect net, washable pads, Scotchlite detailing while taking advantage of the Metropolis accessory kit. Those looking for an inexpensive, second lid for winter and general hacking about town won’t be disappointed.
The Giro stylus sits toward the lower mid section of Giro's range. Tested as a road helmet it actually appears on the leisure or casual helmet section of a fair few websites so beware of this if you go looking for one and cant initially find it.
Limar's £104 Pro 104 Ultralight helmet got a good write-up recently from road.cc's Roger Blessed. This 575 Sport Action will sting you for a much more humble £39.99 but still carries over some of the features of the Pro, such as the in-mould construction and the dial adjust headband. That dial makes it a cinch to secure and the L that I tested was a pretty good fit on my (large, round) melon. At 270g it's reasonably light too.
