B’TWIN ROADR 500

£29.99 All the ingredients of a good lid, if a lit­tle heavy

Cycling Plus - - GEAR GUIDE -

Sizes 52-57cm, 57-62cm Colours White, red Vents 17 Weight 320g (52-57cm) Most hel­mets un­der £30 look aw­ful or are best avoided, but B’Twin has changed that. The RoadR has mod­ern racy looks and, with 17 vents, it keeps you cool on hot days. The outer shell is in-moulded, even at the rear and around the bot­tom sur­face, which makes it ro­bust in day-to-day life, but does add weight. The rear ratchet re­ten­tion sys­tem is crude, a lit­tle clunky and sticky. It isn’t ver­ti­cally ad­justable, but locks in place with­out any is­sues. When com­bined with the easy-to-ad­just side straps, which don’t lock down, the hel­met sits com­fort­ably in place. It’s an amaz­ing value lid, work­ing well on the road and for com­mut­ing.
