Any time I see helmets on sale, I always want to know the manufacture date of the helmet I would be buying. If you are buying a clearance item, and your riding season ends soon, your "new" helmet will not be "new" very long. There can be time limits, depending on materials and construction, for any helmet to provide good head protection. An old helmet may fit, but (as examples) the foam liner may have hardened or internal metal items may get corroded in some way. Then the safety of that helmet may be less than you are paying for, even with the reduced price. Price is one
factor in a good helmet purchase, sure, but it is not the only consideration. Fitment, sound levels, visibility, and overall weight are factors, also. All IMHO, of course.
2008 FJR1300A - Pirelli Angel GT (Spec A) tires, RDL seat, TPMS, GPS digital speedometer (Amazon ~US$28.00).
P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.
