Needing to replace a cracked helmet. Looking for something with good coverage at the rear, MTB style, decent airflow through it as I tend to sweat a lot. Would be nice to have MIPS from what I have read on that technology. Oh and not be bright pink :lol:

Budget up to £100.

Any ideas? Bell helmets seem to fit best, but the Super 3 MIPS is a little over budget, and having tried one on, seemed very large, quite wide, presumably due to the MIPS system?

Thanks in advance.

Go over budget. The POC Tectal (race) is amazing! The lightest, well ventilated and best covering helmet I have ever owned.

Seven IDP looks interesting, a few comments about build quality though?

POC Tectal is so far over budget I just can't go there sadly :(

Kask Rex and Scott Vivo Plus have caught my eye if anyone has tried one? Kask felt good, haven't tried the Scott though.

Whatever you do don't get a Bell Super. Hot, heavy & doesn't stay in place. The Giro Chronicle seems to be the best for your budget.

Interesting, thought it might be okay venting on that. Tempted by a Giro, but the pads falling apart put me off.

Uvex Finale, best fitting helmet I've owned..

I crashed in it last year where I was knocked out cold and helmet cracked in two nearly, but I'm still here writing this so it must be good..

Never had a problem with airflow or overheating also it has a nice flat top ridge to mount a GoPro if you wish.. :D

Only downside is the crap colour choice.. :lol:
