    Too goo to be true, usually is. £100 for a new Arai, not likely.

    How fake news ? Please expand ? A chinese Arai for £107, I'm sure that is totally legit, even after Arai UK come out and issue a warning !!!

    Go ahead (no pun intended), buy a £100 Arai and come back and tell me it was OK when you fell off? Most of these will never be tested, but I wouldn't want to be wearing one in an off.

    Yes totally agree, it’s teasing our lives by not mentioning sellers names

    I doubt they hang around long enough to name and shame.
    eBay was full at one time, but look like they've moved over to Facebook. I was inundated with adverts at one time.

    Fake jackets, fake iPhones and fake watches are one thing we can accept now and again but as for safety that’s not on.

    I'd put fake iPhone chargers in the safety bracket.

    Don't tell the Mrs she'd be running out to get me one of these with our life insurance policy!

    Can't take any chances with safety, so I always buy from a reputible helmet supplier.......

    Totally agree and as I’ve found out never have a helmet posted as I’ve had near car crash damage on my goods last year
