Diamondback Airflow helmet£24.99

Stealthy skate park looks

BikeRadar score2/5

The Airflow helmet from Diamondback offers up some subtle stealthy looks that are fit for any skate park or down the dirt jumps. Unlike many other helmets in this style, the Airflow comes in a choice of two sizes – this really does make getting the fit right a lot easier.

The Airflow features 10 vents, accompanied by a good amount of internal channelling, which helps to promote airflow across the top of your head, which in practice, did offer some relief but we still got warm quite quickly.

Although our lid fitted okay, the straps that are supposed to hold it in place were too short, which meant they were at their limit and too tight when fastened under the chin – this isn't ideal and definitely wasn’t comfy.
