If you're ever down in Cork Lee motorcycles usually have a good sale in Jan. Think I got 20% off an X-Lite lid. Ended up being cheaper than any of the usual online sites when I checked after.

Keep an eye here for your size. In my experience they put up different ones every day and if you're on the ball youll get sorted. I got a gt air for 250 delivered. Excellent service too.

You could try https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/ I bought a helmet from them recently and found them very good. Also, if you need to return it and exchange it or get a refund there is no problem whatsoever.
These guys seem to be very good also, a friend got a helmet there and was very satisfied with them, and no currency exchange issues either. https://www.motocard.com/en/

Another vote for sportsbikeshop. Got an AGV recently from them that was 420 locally. Got it from there delivered for 245

There's an IN STORE ONLY sale this weekend up in Crossan's if you fancy the trip? I bought my RX7GP off them a few years ago at a similar in store sale and got a decent discount off it.

EDIT: Details are on their Bookface page

Cheers lads, plenty to choose from , I'll check out the online sites tonight while on night shift in work��. I bought the Arai i have in Crossans and I remember getting I good discount. I've a big head and I reckon I'm better of going to try a lid on before buying so if there a similar price to other online sites then I'll spin up north and try before I buy. Cheers lads ��

Have a look at the LS2 FF320. Seems to have a lot of features at a very reasonable price.

I'm thinking the January sales, I presume Crossans will have some sort of sale. Im open to any make of lid as long as it's a good safety rating, comes with a pin lock and is not crazy money and is quite. I have a bit of tinnitus so a quiet lid is important.
