Stateside Skate Helmet
Advantages: very rugged, looks good
Disadvantages: another helmet may be better, bit bulky
This skateside helmet is a sort of bmx style helmet, and comes in various colours and sizes. I personally have the camoflage coloured one, and I think it looks awesome. It is all soft and padded on the inside, and feels like it will take a hell of a lot more of a beating compared with a normal cyclinc helmet (those things seem to disintegrate if they are left outside in the rain on the floor for too long, my helmet gets chucked around a lot, and doesn't really show any problems!). Although I have to say if I was in the market for a new helmet, I would get the one from No fear, my friend got one from sportsdirect for less than a tenner (I got my helmet for 20 quid), and his lokos loads better (my firend got his in a special offer, down from 50 odd quid).
Anyway, this helmet is like a plastic shell, inside which there is about an inch of padding, before your head. You simply slide your head inside, and you feel all safe! there is also an adjustable clip to put around your neck. However this helmet doesn't have much in the way of width adjustment, you just have to measure your head before you buy your helmet, and select the size appropriately.
I should probably mention at this point tha tmy brother hates this helmet, he says it just looks too weird and isn't normal. I response to him has been for him to get his own helmet then if he didn't like mine, yet he has so far declined to do so (I have a feeling he may just be jealous!).
Overall then, this is a pretty good helmet. I cannot comment on how safe it is, as luckily I have never had to use it yet, but it is pretty good, just a little bit bulkier and heavier compared with a normal helmet, but considering I have had mine for over 4 years now, and it still looks just as good as the day that I got it (it has been used in the rain, stored in the shed over winter, trodden on, dropped, even left outside overnight once), I think I can be pretty certain it won't let me down should I ever fall. Overall then I give this 4/5. I detucted 1 point just because of the other helmet I saw being cheaper in the special offer. But I would say this is a pretty dang good helmet.
Summary: A pretty good helmet
