PRICE: £95

WEBSITE: Sinner Gallix II

WHAT THEY SAY: "The Sinner Gallix includes light weight in mould technology with a size adapting system and an adjustable vented shell. It also provides soft ear pads and comfort padding. "

WHAT ALF SAYS: One of the lighter helmets we tested (although Sinner didn’t provide us with the exact official weight), the Gallix II is aimed at freeriders and comes is a range of quite plain, dark/earthy colours which give it a no-nonsense, rugged look.

It uses in-mould technology to keep the weight down, and comes with ten reasonably large vents, the front six of which can be adjusted easily whilst wearing gloves; the rear four vents offer little or no adjustment

The tactile, furry lining of the Gallix II feels great, and it can be removed for washing, whilst the ear pads (also with soft furry lining) are also removable. Adjustment is with a rear dial which provides a secure, snug fit for a helmet that will appeal to riders who want an unfussy look and light weight.

FOR: Plain, good looks

AGAINST: Lack of adjustability in rear vents.
