Roughly 10 years on the Helmet debate continues. I’ve drifted out of wearing one by choice, drifted out of cycling. Like most of the cycling world I’ve been riding without one. Cut back to the present were I have decided to get back on the bike and give it ago again.

The bad news is my Giro Atmos in the above picture is now beyond use. The foam is OK as is the shell but the bit that cradles the skull is rotten, same for Vals Giro helmet too.

Seriously considering a Boardman from Halfords as they all(helmets) have to meet the same CE tests, even the cheapest ones.
