I am so excited about owning one of these, as I dislike wearing regular helmets, and I couldn't wait to open it when it arrived in its very attractive packaging. So, very simple to charge up and you just need to practice doing the zip up and connecting the on/off popper without looking in a mirror for a few times, but then it's easy. It comes with its own detachable, washable black zip cover, which is useful, as I imagine one might get a slightly sweaty neck wearing it on hot days. I was a bit worried about it being heavy, but it's not - I just don't notice it when I am cycling. The audible on & off sound when you connect the popper (once you're about to set off on your bike) is brilliant. You need to remember to disconnect it when you are about to get off your bike - I imagine these things will become second nature soon. I feel super-safe & a more confident cyclist wearing it. Ten out of ten! And great price and speedy delivery from Kit Radar, thank you :)
I got this as a present for my partner who had just bought a hybrid bycicle and I was worried about his safety. He hasn't used it yet, and I hope he never does, but the safety he feels about wearing it is well worth the money. We were very impressed to read that the helmet's sensors also pick up on objects making their way fast towards your head (e.g. a brick falling from a height) and that there are no false positives with this gadget, it only goes off when you truly need it. It is a bit expensive, but if you end up actually using it, you probably won't think you wasted any money :) and if you don't, it's 5 years of safety, or £40/year, a little over £3/month to make sure your head stays where it belongs, without having to wear a bulky, badly made piece of plastic on your head, which most times does more damage than good.
