Scott Karma helmet £75

Well vented choice

BikeRadar score 3.5/5

This lightweight (290g) in-mould helmet looks longer and less deep than its trail-focussed rivals and could be mistaken for and used as a pure cross-country lid, but the fit is Tardis-like and the sides end up further down the sides of your head than you expect.

Venting through the 20 big vents is great, inviting enough air flow to make the Karma too chilly for winter use. The fixed peak is a downside, but in its defence it’s shaped to be as far out of your field of vision as possible. If you ride a bit of everything, pop the visor off and the Karma still looks fast.
