Whether you're looking for a watt-saving helmet equipped with the latest MIPS spherical technology and three-way fit tuning or just a basic one to ride to work in, we've seen some incredible reductions across the board this Cyber Weekend.
And it looks like you've been buying a lot of lids. When we updated this page on Sunday night we noticed quite a few of the Black Friday-discounted helmets had sold out, particularly in the US, so we've scouted out the last few good deals ready for Cyber Monday and have included them below.
If you're after more bike-related bits then head over to our main Cyber Monday Bikes Deals page where you'll find over 100 bargains that we think you ought to look at.

Bontrager Specter WaveCel Helmet:
$150 $109.93 at REI Save 27% This is something that, if you like it, you should hurry! The Specter has been discontinued so this is your last chance to buy a new one. Suitable for all areas of cycling it is exceptionally safe with Boa closure system protecting you.
Kask Mojito Cubed:
$199 $149 at Backcountry (save $50) The third iteration of Kask's best known and well loved helmet is lighter, has the brand's Octo Fit retention system and 17 vents to keep your head cool on hot days. Comfortable Blue Tech padding is moisture wicking and helps with a secure fit. Very good reduction here - don't miss out!
Lazer Z1 MIPS:
$219.99 $157.49 at Backcountry (save $62.50) The Lazer Z1 is a classic and has been through a few iterations now. When we reviewed it we compared it to a fine wine, getting better with age. Maybe we were a few glasses in when we wrote that, but the fact is the Z1 has been worn to multiple pro wins and is an incredibly good all-rounder - and now at an incredibly good price.
POC Ventral Air Spin:
$249.95 $199.96 at Backcountry (save $49.99) Swedish brand POC is known for its innovative approach and unique styling - also crazy colours of course. The Air Spin not only looks cool but it IS cool, with its big vents and shape that optimises airflow and also aids aerodynamics. Great price here - one that we definitely recommend.
Specialized S-Works Evade II:
$274.99 $219.95 at Mike's Bikes (save $55.04) One of the original aero lids on its second iteration featuring MIPS SL protection. The Evade II has been wind tunnel tested to save 50 seconds over 40km compared to a standard road helmet. It's fast - but are you fast enough to catch one at this price before they sell out?
$299.95 $224.96 at Backcountry (save $74.99) When we reviewed the Protone at the end of 2020 we gave it 4/5 and said this: "It's expensive, but it is comfortable and impressively light. The ventilation may not be on par with a fully vented option, but this a very good helmet and a great hybrid for those looking for a semi-aero option." Not expensive any more.
Bolle The One:
$180 $125.99 at Jenson (save $54.01) Super saving on a super versatile lid that allows you to convert easily between a conventional vented helmet, an aero helmet and an mtb helmet, using clip-in inserts. It's really clever stuff, and if you're as smart you'll get one at over $50 or one-third off the RRP while stock lasts.
$249.95 $187.50 at Jenson (save $62.45) WorldTour watchers will have seen the Kask Valegro on the heads of team Ineos Grenadiers. This a pro-level helmet that's super ventilated and super light, and also extremely comfortable thanks to Kask's Octo Fit retention system. At over $60 off the full price it will be much more comfortable on the wallet too.

£169.99 £84.99 at Wiggle (save £85) WorldTour watchers will have seen the Kask Valegro on the heads of team Ineos Grenadiers. This a pro-level helmet that's super ventilated and super light, and also extremely comfortable thanks to Kask's Octo Fit retention system. At over £80 off the full price it will be much more comfortable on the wallet too.
Kask Mojito X:
£119 £64.99 at Wiggle (save £54.01) Top of Wiggle's best-selling bike products as we write. the Mojito X has 45% off the RRP, which is a very good saving on a very popular lid, which features much of the tech from Kask's pro-level lids and has 26 vents to keep you cool. There aren't many left at this price and sizes are getting limited, so hurry to avoid disappointment as the saying goes!
£180 £69.99 at Wiggle (save £110.01) Massive savings on the pro-level aero lid from HJC, as used by Lotto Soudal. We gave it 4/5 when we reviewed it. It's very lightweight, very aerodynamic and very comfortable with Korean motorcycle helmet specialist's 3D fit. Reinforcement structure for protection is also good too, as you'd expect. Colour options and sizes are getting limited at this price.
£200 £99 at Sigma Sports (save £101) The Trenta is a pro-level helmet developed to celebrate the Italian brand's 30th anniversary (hence 'trenta'). This discount amounts to a lot more than that, and is worth of celebration itself. As with all the best Cyber Monday deals, sizes and options are disappearing fast.
Specialized S-Works Evade II ANGI MIPS:
£250 £199.99 at Tredz Save 20% Specialized top of the range aero helmet. Worthy of the S-Works naming, the Evade II is made to cut through the air as smoothly as possible. But, there's more! Even with a mostly closed casing, this helmet provides plenty ventilation and is very light so it can be used anywhere.
Bell Z20 Aero MIPS:
£210 £120 at Sigma Sport Save 43% Can you think of any other helmet that looks quite as spectacular as the Z20? The one in the picture gives a burst of colour to the grey but you can go full stealth with an all black shell or maybe and all white one. These helmets scream aero from the hills and are a brilliant buy and this price.
Bontrager XXX WaveCel:
£199.99 £139 at Evans Cycles Save £59.99 These helmets are all about safety and, to be honest, looking quite funky. You have a choice of bright red or bright yellow. But the safety aspect is unmatched, this has Bontrager's own WaveCel protection which, according to them is 48x more effective than standard foam helmets in preventing concussions caused by common cycling accidents.
£129.99 £79.49 at ProBikeKit Save £50.50 One of the bullet points that's usually high up for this helmet that is actually a great feature is ponytail compatibility, sounds silly but that is incredibly useful for those of you with longer hair. It also has the standard lightweight, safe as houses design.
POC Ventral Air SPIN:
£220 £110 at ChainReactionCycles Save 50% We can't really have a helmets page without at least one POC helmet in there can we? As usual the brightly coloured bizarrely shaped helmets are rare in Black Friday as they're so popular with this deal being the same with low stock already so buy fast!
