If you're looking for a reasonably priced, all-round helmet, look no further. Alf takes a look into why the Manbi Park is definitely worth considering.

PRICE: £54.95

WEBSITE: Manbi Park

WHAT THEY SAY: "The Manbi Park provides a lightweight in-mould helmet, app. 425g, while being superbly contoured and having a vented shell. It has adjustable air vents to control air flow, along with removable foam inserts, of which are velvet lined. It provides a goggle band locator, a micro size adjustment system and comes complete with drawstring bag."

WHAT ALF SAYS: The Park is the cheapest helmet we've reviewed this season, but that doesn't mean to say it's not up to the job. Indeed, for anyone on a budget it's well worth checking out, and it comes in both kid's and adult sizes.

It's not the lightest on test at 425g, but it's not overly heavy either, and it comes with a good range of features. These include 12 adjustable vents (only the front two are adjustable on the go; the others use foam inserts which have to be removed by hand), removable liner and ear pads, goggle retainer and dial adjuster at the rear. You also get a cloth storage bag.

This is pretty much all you need in a ski helmet, and in use the Park's velour liner is soft and warm. Yes, it feels a tad 'bulky' compared to some of its more expensive rivals and it has pretty utilitarian looks, but if you're looking for a good value ski helmet with all the essential features, the Manbi Park is well worth checking out.

FOR: Good value

AGAINST: Plain looks
