Cheap Chinese helmet for $23 delivered?
Did a quick search, nothing came up. Anyone own one of these lightweight helmets with a crazy amount of holes? I write "holes" because I'm not sure how the lid actually vents.

What's your brain worth? If it's only $23, try it. Has anybody ever had a widowmaker and thought, "Damn, I'm sure glad I saved $35 and bought a cheaper helmet?"
Rip off of a Catlike.

REI has a few helmets on sale right now from Bell and Giro. The Giro Feature is $55 right now. That's what I use, and I like it. That's a measly $30 more than that question mark helmet from Chairman Mao's Glorious Machine and Tool Works in Chongqing, China.
Not even a debate.
In the listing it states:
I see no mention of any kind of certification or testing, so avoid it.
If the certifications are to be believed then I find it no different than the Chinese made helmets with well known name brands emblazoned on them at 4 times the price.

And it may be the exact same helmet as the Catlike. Kinda like how you can buy the same exact lights as the ones branded MagicShine directly from China, for less money with a different name.

Off tangent but all these branded sunglasses are made in the same factory right next to each other, in fact they are each other in some cases with minor frame design differences and/or color changes. Yes, I watched 60 minutes 2 weeks ago
