After wearing this helmet almost everyday for the last month, I think it’s about time I stuck a review of it on here. I initially bought this helmet as a cheap stop gap measure, after dropping my old AGV and putting a nice crack in the outer shell – doh! Amazon were running an 80% off discount on many end of range lines and although I’d rather buy a helmet in a store where I can try it on, the price was so good I decided to take a gamble.
The Bell M3R is fairly mid range and generally sold for around £200-250. Amazon price was £44 + VAT. Hold on one minute, why is there VAT on a helmet?! Personal safety gear is exempt in the UK. I ordered anyway and raised the issue with Amazon customer service, who after a couple of weeks refunded me the VAT.
